Studio Calico Sunday Sketch 12.27

I'm playing along with Sunday Sketch over at Studio Calico. I used the scrapbook sketch as inspiration for this card. The papers are mostly ancient Making Memories, the background was embossed using a Quickutz embossing folder and the penguin is from the Merry and Bright stamp set by In a Creative Bubble for Studio Calico. The die for the flag is also Studio Calico. I used some stickles on his hat for a little sparkly. I made 4 of them so my count is now 38 remaining if you are following along;)

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday 235

I'm playing along today because the Make It Monday 235 is all about coloring...and I love to color. Two more happy new year cards 42 remaining. I used up the last little bits of snowflake paper and also a piece of glitter ribbon that has been lying around. The bear stamp is from the Make it Merry stamp set by In A Creative Bubble for Studio Calico and the fox stamp is from the Warmest Wishes stamp set by Papertrey Ink. Both are colored with Copic Markers.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Getting Ready for 2016

I'm trying to get enough cards made to give my co-workers when I head back to work after break. It's a perfect project for stash busting too and you know how I love to use up what I have. The first set of cards was made using all snowflake paper I could find in my stash and this Merry and Bright stamp by In A Creative Bubble for Studio Calico. The paper on this particular card is from an old Basic Grey collection.

I also used up some colored card stock which is awesome because my bin is over stuffed and those snowflake sequins are now gone from my stash too. I was inspired by the 12.20 Sunday Sketch at Studio Calico. I made 6 of these...that leaves me about 44 more.

PaperTrey Ink Make It Monday #233

This week it was all about the splatters for Make It Monday on the PaperTrey Ink blog. This is one thing I have more than I could use in a lifetime so why now dust off a bottle of spray ink and make a few more Christmas cards.

I used the Warmest Wishes stamp set and dies for this card and colored the images with Copic  markers. I made the splatters with Frosty Nights glimmer mist from Tattered Angels.

I do love the effect of splatters especially for winter type projects and really should use them more.

And since I had out the stamps and markers and paper I made this shaker card using the same stamp set and dies.

I love coloring stamped makes me feel like a kid! Thanks for stopping by.
