The Christmas Mouse

Hello again! Well, it's cold and blustery here today with our first snow fall of the season. I'm thankful it's not sticking yet, I need new tires for my Jeep and can't get them until tomorrow. Once that happens, what ever happens, happens.
Anyhoo, I have a card I want to share with you that I made using the Merry Mice stamp set and water colored using Wink of Stella rather than water! I know! Crazy, right? But it worked and it's so sparkly! I just love it!

The close up shot shows the sparkle a little more. It still doesn't do this card any justice. I started with a standard card base of Emerald Envy and layered a piece of Presents and Pinecones DSP cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and 2 pieces of Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut 3" square. I stamped the image onto Watercolor paper (I used my MISTI to stamp the image 3 times to get a nice dark crisp image) using Basic Black Archival ink, and I stamped the sentiment with the same. I then colored the image using the clear Wink of Stella glitter pen using Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, his nose is Basic Grey, inside ears, Pink Pirouette, and his body is Smoky Slate. The star and the gold parts of the ornament are done in gold Wink of Stella.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Please leave a comment below, I would love to here what you think.
Happy Stamping,

Wondrous Wreath

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! Today I am excited to share a card with you that was made by one of my a follower of my FB page, Nancy Woeltje using the Wondrous Wreath stamp set. She created this card for our weekly sketch challenge and she knocked it out of the park on this one. Don't you agree?

She also used the brand new Cable Knit Sweater Dynamic Embossing Folder. I just love the texture that gives to cards. For a list of supplies that Nancy used on this card, please see below. For measurements, feel free to head on over to my FB page and check out this weeks Sketch Challenge at www.facebook.com/snsfromtheheart and while you're there, join in on the fun. We would love to see what you come up with! Until next time, happy stamping!

Lovin' the Tin of Tags

Hello and Happy Thursday! Today I want to share with you a cute Christmas card I made using the stamp set, Tin of Tags and the Candy Cane Lane DSP. I love this stuff too!
The card base is a standard A2 card from Real Red Cardstock, I then cut a piece of DSP 4 1/2" x 1 3/4" and a second piece, flipped over cut at 3 1/4" x 2". The strip of Basic Black is cut 1/2" X  4" and the Whisper White is cut 2" x 1 3/4". I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink and adhered all the pieces down with Snail adhesive. I then added 3 pearls to add a little something to it. I would love to hear from you as to your thoughts on this card, so please feel free to comment below. Until next time, Happy Stamping,

Blessed Beyond Measure

Hi there,
Today's card is one I did for a sketch challenge over on my FB page. I know, most of my cards are born due to the challenge, but this one I especially love because in addition to the wonderful rich colors in this card, I LOVE the sentiment, which comes from the Paisley's and Posies Stamp set, and the reason I love it so, is that it truly reflects how I feel, and that is blessed beyond measure. I am thankful for each and every day. I am thankful and grateful for my family, I have been blessed to have the very best parents in the world, a wonderful mother-in-law, a generous brother and awesome sister and brothers- in- laws.

Jar of Haunts

Good Morning and happy Thursday! Today's share is from the Jar of Haunts Halloween stamp set. I love this set! It's so adorable, especially this "mummy" jar! So stinkin' cute! I'm excited to share this card in my card class this evening!
The card base is Basic Black cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2' and folded in half. The Pumpkin Pie layer is 3 3/4" square, the DSP strip is 5 1/2" x 3/4" and the Whisper White layer is 3" square. I stamped the "mummy" jar and the Happy Halloween using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then, using the blender pens and Basic Grey ink, I went around the edges of all the "mummy" wrap to add shading and highlighting to him. I just love how cute this card came out. And the more I look at him, the more I believe he could also be used for a Get Well card! What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below. If you would like to re-create this card, all of the materials used can be found in my online store by clicking on the "shop" link in the navigation bar. Feel free to look around and I wish you all a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
