Blue Christmas!

 I stamped and cut out this ornament at the same time as I did the other ones posted previously, but I only got so far and then wasn't sure what I wanted to do to finish it. I finally decided to make it simple and this is the result!

Falling Snow??

 I hope we don't see that for a while, but one never knows! I don't mind these flakes at all though. I continued to play but with the Snowflake Soiree(w-127922 or c-127925)set and blue inks. This Whisper White (100730)card was masked and  stamped with VersaMark(102283) then embossed with White Embossing powder(109132). Inks were then applied with sponge daubers(102892). to create the focal image. I used Island Indigo(126986), Pool Party(126982) and Midnight Muse(126860). Basic Rhinestone Jewels(119246) were added to the centers of the snowflakes. The sentiment is from More Merry Messages stamp set(w-126400 or c-126402).
 This card was masked with torn Post-it notes again and then the inks were applied and the snow flakes were stamped in Midnight Muse(126860). The whole card was over-stamped with the new Illuminate Glimmer Watermark pad(126857) from the Holiday Catalogue. I made a boo-boo with ink from the edge of a stamp so I covered it up with the 2 smallest snowflakes from the new Bigz Die, Snow Flurry(127813) in Whisper White and Midnight Muse(126843) card stocks.

A closer look at the Illuminate glimmer ink, the photos do not do this any justice at all.

These were very quick and rewarding card to create.

I have many more to share so check back in a day or two.

Have a great day!

Falling behind and Falling Leaves

 I have lost track of time, I guess. I can't believe it has been so long since I posted last!
I had a chance to play on Friday and was able to create these seasonal one layer cards. I have shied away from this technique for ever, because it looks really is so simple!!! If you have been thinking of trying this please DO IT!!! You will not be disappointed.
Paper: Whisper White(100730)

Inks: Old Olive(126953), Lucky Limeade(126984), Daffodil Delight (126944) and Always Artichoke (126972)

Stamp Sets: Gently Falling(w-123802 or c-123804), Perfectly Penned (w-122890 or c-122892)
Inks: More Mustard(126964), Old Olive(126953), Tangerine Tango (126946), Cajun Craze (126965), and Early Espresso (126974)

Stamp Sets: French Foliagew-120845 or c-121166), Gently Falling (w-123802 or c-123804) and Curly Cute(w-117014 or c-120510)

Accessories: Sponge Daubers(102892), Post-it notes

Technique: I tore the sticky edge of several Post-it notes and stuck them to the cardstock to create a mask then applied ink straight from the ink pads with the sponge daubers continuing to add colors and blend until I was happy with the look. Then, with the mask still in place I stamped over the area.I used the sae mask for both cards as well!

Thanks for coming by!
