Carve December #9

Today Bessie got a scarf for all that cold weather out there...

I colored the scarf with Memento Dual Tip Markers.

I am having so much fun with her!

Shady Pine Christmas Cards

Good Sunday Morning Friends!

I normally don't post on the weekends but I have so much fun stuff to share with you this month I can't fit it all into the weekdays!

So today I wanted to share some cards I made recently using the new set of Rubber Stamp Tapestry Peg Stamps - Shady Pine.  I LOVE this set even though it consists of just 2 stamps...the pine cone and evergreen sprig. I have also used stamps from one of their new clear stamp sets - Trinkets and Wishes.  Let's take a look...

All of these cards were stamped using VersaFine Clair inks then flicked with gold watercolor paint.

I used some red squiggles and gemstones to add a little zip to this card.

The sentiment is mounted on a piece of (real) wood veneer.

And you can't really tell in the photo but there are glittery accents through out the pine bough on this card.  It is so pretty IRL, especially when the light picks up both the glitter and gold flecks from the splattered paint.

Shadow Box #4


This lovely shadowbox was created using goodies from Carta Bella Christmas collection - the deer, sentiment, holly and even the black plaid all came from them.  It's very elegant with the red and silver bells.

Snow-globe Shaker Card

Ink Stained Greetings!

I hope you're having a lovely weekend so far...

Today I wanted to share a nifty little shaker card with you that I made using Rubber Stamp Tapestry's new clear set of stamps - Let It Snow!

This is such a fun stamp set and the great thing is I had a circle die that matched the set perfectly so I was able to easily turn these stamps into a snow-globe shaker!!

These are almost as fun to play with as the ones filled with water!!

Today's carved rubber stamp is a special request....

Christine has requested a pig.

Not quite the same but I think he'll do!

Carve December 2018 #6

Have you carved today?

I did and I made a flower wreath to go with Bessie's flower headdress...

What do you think?

She's all ready for Spring don't you think?

Shadow Box #3

Merry & Bright

Isn't this a fun one?

Morgan made this....not sure who made the pattern paper but the die-cut words are from Sizzix which were cut from Ebony/Glossy Gold Rinea Foiled Papers.  The garland is something from the Dollar Store (which has been in my stash for years).  She hot glued it into the top corners & center then draped the remainder around the bottom to fill it up.

Dewlet Laurel Wreath

Did you know that Imagine now has a darling little die that works with the Dewlet Ink Pads???  Well they do and it's just cute as can be.  We have been sharing different ideas on how to use it and today is my turn.

In keeping with the season I made a Laurel Leaf Wreath - Dewlet Style!

Each one of those little leaves is actually a die-cut dewlet ink pad impression that was cut using the Dewlet die-cuts!   While it was a bit time consuming I think the finished wreath is well worth the effort!  It now graces my door welcoming all visitors with it's style and beauty!
