Hi stamping friends 🙂 At The Card Concept, we’re back from our holiday break and ready to challenge you again! This week Lesley has come up with a super cozy photo to inspire us:
My style is clean and layered and I got my inspiration from the toasty warm pair of mittens I would really love to have right now! Christmas day it was almost 70 degrees here in New England, and boy were we spoiled. Well, those times are over and it’s back to reality folks!
I used a set from Flourishes (they’re re-opening soon, yay!) called Warm Winter Wishes and colored the mittens with Copics: R24, R27, R29, E30, E42, E43. I used the Festive Wonder – Snow Flurry embossing folder from Crafter’s Companion for the background.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to join us this week 🙂
Hi stamping friends 🙂 I am a huge fan of Christmas and New Year’s Eve, but I have to admit it’s a relief to have it all over and successful and be back in my stamp room! There’s a turkey dinner in the oven, Jeff is watching the Patriots’ game and I am coloring until my heart’s content…life is good 🙂
For today’s card I am using a Flourishes set called Winter Berries. This set is in my Christmas collection of stamps, but I am so over Christmas cards now, I decided to turn it into a “friendship” wreath card and turn the winter berries into blueberries.
Flourishes is going to be re-opening and I couldn’t be happier! They’re having a facebook challenge today for a chance to win their new release. Oh yeah, I’m playing along for that chance!
I colored my wreath with the following Copics: YG93, YG95, YG97, B93, B95, B99, outlined in a little Y21.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you find some time to do what makes you happiest today!
Hi stamping friends 🙂 The hustle and bustle of Christmas is over, and hubby is off to Vermont for a storm coming in tomorrow, so I’m spending a little time coloring and unwinding in my craft room. I hear this storm has really left its mark across the country, I hope you’re all safe & warm!
I’m a huge fan of holiday stamps, but I am loving the butterflies in the Sheena’s A Little Bit Sketchy – True Colors set. Yes, our first winter storm is upon us and I’m already ready to move on to butterflies and flowers.
Hi stamping friends 🙂 Well, we’re quickly approaching Christmas, and what am I doing?! Oh…just coloring! Lol. I can think of 1,001 things I should be doing, but I am often known to get “sidetracked” (just ask my husband) when I go into my stamp room… so tonight when I went in to find a present I knew I had hidden away in there, I spotted this fabulous butterfly stamp from the Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy Set – True Colors, and sat down pretty much immediately to create a card with it! They do say coloring is very relaxing so I’m sure we could all use a little coloring time this week!
Hi stamping friends 🙂 Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at Sugar Pea Designs. I’m in the middle of a big project for one of the design teams I’m on, but thought I’d take a little break and make a card. I love, love, love Sugar Pea Designs’ stamps, they are some of my favorites for coloring! Here’s the sketch:
The little guy is from the My Hero set and I colored him with Copics:
Hair: N4, N6, N8
Skin: E000, E00, E11 with R20 on the cheeks and a little BG0000 on the glasses
Hi stamping friends 🙂 Wow, we’re getting so close to Christmas and with so much to do, it’s important to squeeze in a little crafty time for yourself! I’m done with my Christmas cards for this year, so I pulled out this sweet set from Crafter’s Companion, called Moonbeam Meadow – True Love. Oh I just can’t get enough of these adorable mice! I colored this image with Spectrum Noir markers on Spectrum Noir cardstock, and here are the colors I used:
Hi stamping friends 🙂 I’ve been able to spend the majority of the afternoon in my stamp room and I am one happy stamper right now! For this card I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
For this card I used the I Knead You set from MFT Stamps along with the matching die cut. Surprisingly, the DSP on this card is from a holiday paper pad I got last year called Keepin’ Cozy from Echo Park Paper. I should know by now to keep my holiday papers out all year, there are so many universal patterns in those pads! I colored my kitten in Copics: N0, N2, N4 and the yarn in B41, B45.
Hi stamping friends 🙂 Can you believe we’re less than 3 weeks away from Christmas?!? I’m trying to get my Christmas cards done and mailed, and today I got to add another to the pile thanks to the Retro Sketches Challenge for some inspiration and Crafter’s Companion for a super cute image to color! Here’s the sketch:
Hi stamping friends 🙂 Today I want to share with you a super simple Christmas Tree card. By now you all know I’m a huge fan of coloring and lots of layers, and often make cards that are not too quick. I find coloring so relaxing that I love taking time to make detailed cards. But, sometimes it is nice to have a super quick & easy card that you can whip up in a snap! And what better time to have a card like that than at Christmas?!?
This card is made with the Christmas Tree Cutout die from MFT Stamps and some of my favorite festive DSP. I added an embossed background, but that’s about the extent of detail on this card! You can make this in so many different designer papers and color combinations for an assortment of quick cards. Ooh, how about a nice gift set for someone?
