Valentines or Love Cards 4 Kids Card Recipe

Found this stamp set from Avery Elle and knew it was perfect for Valentine cards.  I stamped the turtle and sentiment in Hero Arts ink.  I colored with Copics and backed it with a coordinating green.

Winter Wonderland Card Recipe

This is one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets and it comes from My Favorite Things.  I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut the Gina K Magic Mask to mask my images as I stamped them.  I colored the images with Copic Markers.  The sentiment also comes from My Favorite Things.  I added snowflakes and matted the card front with some Christmas card stock from Paper Play.

Winter 4 Kids Card Recipe

I must admit this is an unadulterated CASE of my friend Diane who also CASE'd it from someone else.  I absolutely love the monochrome background with the pop of color in the sentiment.  The poinsettia stamp is from Penny Black and is stamped in gray ink.  The sentiment die is from My Favorite Things and the awesome red paper is from Paper Cuts.

The Winter/Holiday Challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge

It is Thursday and that means it is time for a new challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge is Winter/Holiday.  Our wonderful sponsor is The Artsy Stamper and if you enter you have the chance to win 1 free image.

I used the pre-colored poinsettia image to create my card.

          


Holiday Card Recipe

This beautiful digi was printed on Georgia Pacific 110 lb paper twice.  I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out both images.  I stacked the images on top of each other using pop dots in between to give the image some dimension.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up and I stamped it in Versamark Ink and heat set it with Range Platinum embossing powder.  I'm thinking this would be a great card to mass produce for Christmas cards.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
