Ellen Hutson LLC Hero Arts Wood Take 'n Make

These set of cards was made using the Hero Arts starbursts wood stamp. I just fell in love with this stamp and while I do not want to add wood to my stamp collection I just couldn't pass it up!

Hero Arts Clear Take 'n Make

I am entering a few cards for a challenge from Ellen Hutson this unfortunately I gave my cards away before I realized they were supposed to be photographed with the stamp...
First I silver embossed on the card base. I used clear stamps with Versamark to do that. Then I used blue glimmer paper with the a clear stamps and white ink to make the snowfall above the trees. I then used the green glimmer paper and white ink to stamp the design on the trees and hand cut them out, adding some leftover kraft paper for the tree trunks. I die cut the label and white embossed the saying. I hope you enjoy!

Simon Says ......Merry Christmas ! Blog Challenge #2

I just love this adorable kitten especially with watercoloring with distress ink. I used a punch for the middle strip piece and my Big Shot for the circle and scalloped circle. I love the Aspen Frost 6x6 pad...This was inspired by Kristina Werner.

Simon Says ......Merry Christmas ! Blog Challenge

I have several cards that I handmade for Christmas this year there will be several posts to play along with Simon Says ......Merry Christmas Blog Challenge (anything Christmassy).
I white embossed Merry Christmas on first layer that was the card base. I used a blue glimmer paper (really pretty in person) with a snow background stamp and white pigment ink. THen dry embossed with matching folder. I stamped the cute Kristina Werner stamp and colored with copic markers. The hearts were die cut from a SSS die and colored with copic marker. The saying was stamped and same copic red marker used to give accents on it to match the hearts. I hope you enjoy!

12 Days of Christmas with Feminine Twist Challenge

I made this tag using part of the cardboard that came in my daughter's tights. It is a slightly larger tag and I am planning on making a pocket in the back of it to place our annual letter and family picture in it for my parents and then place it on their gift. They love animals so I thought this tag colored in with copic markers was perfect. I was inspired by Julia Stainton's tag with the snowflake background and Jennifer McGuire's tag with the animals ( okay she used a bird ) so I might be stretching a bit. But I have been so inspi
red by all things done by Jennifer that this has to partly inspired by her! Thanks Jennifer!!
I love this stamp by Kristina Werner...
