Gnome matter what

Hello -
Sharing an interactive pop up card today for the Simon Say Stamp Wednesday challenge.



Gnomes are from Stamping Bella. Colored with Copic's and cut out with my Brother Scan N Cut.

I used the basic pop up die from the Cat's Pajamas to create the pop up effect inside the card.

Thanks for stopping in.

Masculine note card

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is the use the following graphic.





I chose the bottom row across. I added glitter to my green embossing powder and embossed the trees onto vellum. Then I placed some glue behind the trees so that I could attach it to a white panel and not show through. In real life the trees really sparkle. 

There's a new challenge every week over at  The House That Stamps Built, and you don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps to link up or win. Also, for my blog readers: Enjoy the 10% discount code to the Repeat Impressions Store posted on the sidebar.

Warmest holiday wishes

Hello. Sharing a traditional Christmas card today for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.


Stamps are from Stampin Up! I used cream cardstock from PTI for a change instead of the normal white.  I stamped the mittens in versafine and heat embossed in clear embossing powder so that I could color with Copic's. I used a white gel pen to highlight the stripes on the mittens and added a tiny white pearl to the center of the snowflakes.

Added the black pearls for additional interest that matched the pattern in the mittens.

Thanks for stopping by!

Background sunset and hills were created using Distress Oxide Inks. The tree border stamp is an old one from Memory Box. I stamped it in black and then traced the branches with a stardust gel pen. Sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

Just Because

Hello. Playing in this weeks Freshly Made Sketch #414. Decided not to make a Holiday card. I mailed out all of mine yesterday, so I'm pretty much done with that. =)



Flower background stamp is from Impression Obsession. I stamped it in versamark onto a piece of watercolor paper, then heat embossed with Ranger White detail embossing powder. I used worn lipstick and scattered straw to create the colored background. I smooched both of them onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and dropped the stamped panel into it.

Added the Fabrika Decoru drops in jasmine to the flower centers. Just because vertical sentiment is from Savvy Stamps. Black strip was glued onto the left side - and this is a top folding card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Designer choice challenge - create a matching envelope

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is our Designer Choice Challenge and Patti has challenged us to create a matching envelope.




I used the poinsettia stamp as a background. It is heat embossed in white and then I colored with Arteza watercolor markers. Used the same stamp on the envelope, and I couldn't resist adding the flying Santa and his reindeer postoid.
