Being with you.....makes Christmas special

Inside of Card

This is a brand new stamp set I just recently purchased at my local scrapbook store, it's a brand I'm not familiar with called Impression Obsession, I just loved this image, it reminded me of my hubby and me.
I really liked the quality and they stamp so well.

As you can see, I can't seem to get enough of this paper, it's the My Minds Eye ~ Wonderful winter, I seem to be in the pink & red holiday mood this year....I also wanted to try the Flower Soft in Polar White, it's my first time trying this and I'll be honest, I can't say I love it yet, but I like it so far.  I used the Flower Soft glue to apply the Flower Soft, then pressed softly and let it sit for awhile, I then removed the excess....I applied Stampin' Up! dazzling diamond onto the Snowman and Snowlady and colored it using Copic Sketch markers.  

Thanks for stopping by!

House Mouse - I'm dreaming of a White Christmas

Hi Everyone! Here's one of my favorite House-Mouse stamp images....isn't it too cute?  Well, I finally got to use my new sewing machine ~ okay, I know I need a lot of practice, it took me a while to learn how to get it up and running, that outta tell you how much I know about sewing, but I really want to learn, so I'm thinking about taking a class, we'll see how that goes.   I had a difficult time trying to get the stitch straight, I suppose I can get away with it by just saying it adds character to my card...LOL!  I'm going to have to practice that some more. 

I used Basic Grey- Wassail 6"x6" paper pad and for my card base I used Stampin' Up! cardstock in Very Vanilla as well as Papertrey Ink cardstock in Pure Poppy, I stamped my image onto Buttercream paper by Taylored Expressions using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  Colored my image using Copic Sketch markers, then cut image using Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Labels and used Scalloped Rectangles for the layer, distressed the edges using Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo, added rhinestones onto the 4 corners of the scalloped square and applied Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds onto the furry part of their Santa hats.  For the sentiment, I used a Christmas stamp set from Recollections that I purchased at Michaels.

I've entered this card into the House-Mouse challenge #84

Thank you for stopping by!

Sarah Kay - Noel Joy

It's finally starting to get a bit cold (and I say that lightly), here in Arizona, well, atleast in the area that I live in.  I can't seem to get inspired to create Christmas/Holiday cards when it's warm and sunny out, it's just not happening. 

Okay, so here is another wonderful image from Sarah Kay by Stampavie called "Noel Joy".  I think she is just lovely!  I colored my image using Copic Sketch markers and added Stampin' Up dazzling diamonds glitter onto the furr of the coat as well as the patch of snow beneath her, and just a dust of it on top of the mailbox (it's difficult to see the glitter on the photo, but it really makes the image stand out in person).
Using tiny red gemstones, I applied them to her hat to similate the berries.  The paper I used was from a My Minds Eye paper stack called Sweet Dreams Holiday Avenue.

As far as the sentiment goes....well, I couldn't make up my mind just yet what I wanted to use, so I'm going to wait until I'm ready to mail it,  then I'll decide on what sentiment to add to it.

Materials/Supplies used: Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Real Red, Pattern paper - My Minds Eye, Gemstones - both red & clear by The Paper Studio, Ribbon - Michaels, Copic Sketch Markers, Ink - Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, Image stamped on Xpress paper by Copic, Glitter - Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds.

Pink Holidays!

Two posts in one day...WOW!  I decided to create another card using this image that I used on a prior posting dated October 20th, however, this time I used Pink & Red, which for me is something out of my comfort zone as far as Holiday cards go.  When creating Christmas cards, I tend to stick to the more traditional colors, however, I have to say I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. 

Materials/Supplies used:  Cardstock - Papertrey Ink - Pure Poppy, Patterned paper - My Minds eye "Wonderful Winter", Image stamped on X-press paper by Copic, Imaged stamped with Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black, Copic Sketch Markers, Stampin' Up! - Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Ribbon - Papertrey Ink - Pure Poppy, Martha Stewart punch around the page punch,
