Today, we are showcasing CUTE KITTIES and BUBBLES ANYA! 
 

This card features Cute Kitties.  I love the kitties in this set, they're so adorable!  I sponged distress oxide inks onto Bristol card to create the base of my card.  I stamped the images, ran them through my Scan N Cut, and then colored them with copics.  I used a white gel pen to add some polka-dots to one of the gifts. 
 

 
This card features Bubbles Anya.  How cute is she?  I love this adorable image.  She reminds me of my little granddaughter who of course absolutely loves bubbles!  I used distress oxide inks on Bristol card to create the soft background and spattered water to add some dimension.  I colored Anya and her bubbles with copics and added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the bubbles.
 
Thank you for joining us this week! Winners will be announced on the blog Sunday, December 15th at 12am EST.

Happy Holi-yay

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card using a stamp set from the Paperie Ink etsy shop!


These adorable images are from the Happy Holi-yay stamp set.  This stamp set is one of my favorites for building scenes for winter cards or Christmas cards!  The houses are from the Skating Friends stamp set.  I stamped the images, diecut them using my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I diecut some snow banks, sponged the edges with distress ink, and added some Glamour Dust Glitter for some sparkle.  I sponged distress oxide ink onto Bristol card.  I used a black glaze pen on the critter's eyes.  I adhered the snow banks and images using foam tape for dimension.  After assembling the card I spattered white acrylic paint over the entire scene, then stamped the sentiment.  Stop by the Paperie Ink Etsy Shop to check out her cute stamp sets!

Wishing You Comfort & Joy

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card that I posted over on the LDRS Inspiration Blog


My card was super easy to make!  I used Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp the cute deer from the Woodland Wonderland Stamps and I colored it with copic markers.  I used the Woodland Wonderland Die Set to diecut the deer.


I selected a piece of design paper from the Christmas Cottage 6x6 Paper and cut it to 4.25" x 5.5" and adhered it to my card.  I used the Over The Hills Die to cut the snow bank from white cardstock.  I sponged Bali Blue Hybrid Ink along the edge of the snow bank and added some glitter to give it a frosty appearance.  I used Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp a sentiment from the Cardinal Seasons - Petal Pushers Stamps.  I adhered the snow bank and deer to my card using foam tape for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous week!

Hugs, Anita
