Season's Greetings

Good morning!  I hope you're having a fabulous week so far.  I'm sharing another Christmas card featuring a beautiful Christmas image from Power Poppy.

This image is from the Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set.  I colored the image with distress inks and used lots of Glamour Dust on the ornaments to add some pretty sparkle.  I used the MFT Stitched Circle Frames to cut out the image and then I stamped the sentiment on a banner I cut with the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.  The pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye 6x6 Sugar Plum collection.  I added some MME Sugar Plum Enamel Shapes to finish my card.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Guest Designer - Inspired By All The Little Things

Good morning everyone!

I was so excited when Karren asked me to be a guest designer at Inspired By All The Little Things.

Here is this weeks' inspiration photo ...

And here is the card I made ...

As soon as I saw the inspiration photo I knew I had to use Lawn Fawn's Home For The Holidays stamp and die set.  I started by sponging blue distress ink on a piece of watercolor paper.  I spattered some water to create what I hope looks like a snowy sky.  The snowbank was diecut using the Cat's Pajamas' Hill and Dale CutUps.  I colored the car with copics and stamped the tree with green ink. 

I hope you play along with the challenge this week!  Be sure to stop by the Inspired By All The Little Things blog to see what the design team created based on the inspiration photo.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Have A Beary Good Birthday

I have a fun birthday card to share today using some products from My Favorite Things.

This cute polar bear is from My Favorite Things' BB Polar Bear Pals stamp set.  I colored the bear with copics and then diecut him using the coordinating Die-namics.  I used Your Next Stamp's Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the pattern paper.  I used My Favorite Things' Die-namics Let It Snow to cut a snowflake and then I added an enamel dot to the center.    I stamped the sentiment onto a banner I cut using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  I used a black glaze pen on the bear's eyes and nose.  I used a white gel pen to make the polka-dots on the scarf and added some Glossy Accents to the skate blades.   

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
