My card today features stamps from the Miss Anya Amazing Set and Mice Shelving.  I just love that that these two sets can be used together so easily!  

To create my card, I did quite a bit of masking.  Then I colored up my card using Copic Markers and added a hint of patterned paper on the side.  A small sentiment in the right hand corner finishes this card off.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!

Cheeky Valentine

Hello!  Larisa here and today, I'm sharing a fun Valentine's Day card featuring one of the images from the Cheeky Girly Girls Set.

This set is not currently available, but there are a bunch of other Cheeky Stamps in the shop that would make adorable Valentine cards!  

To create my card, I started with some patterned paper.  Then I layered on a die cut heart doily and some hearts from the collection I used.  I stamped out my image, colored her up with Copics, and fussy cut her out.  Using foam tape, I added her to the right of my doily and adhered the whole thing to the center of the card.  Below my image, I added a chipboard embellishment banner.  A quick and easy card, perfect for Valentine's Day!

Picket Fence Stamps A Wreath for all Seasons!

 Hello!  Larisa here and today I'm sharing two holiday cards featuring the NEW A Wreath for all Seasons Stamp!  This beautiful stamp is the perfect addition to your cards and it's so versatile!

For my first card, I started with a black piece of cardstock and trimmed it to fit an A2 sized card.  Then I stamped out my image and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  On top of that I added a strip of black and white patterned paper from my stash.  After stamping and coloring up Beautiful Girl Jill, I die cut her out using the coordinating die and added her to the left of my card with some foam tape.  I also tucked a bit of iridescent twine behind her for added texture.  A few sequins and a "Merry Christmas" sentiment finish this card off!  

For my next card, I chose some fun and whimsical colors to work with on this vertical design.  I stamped my image out in teal ink on light blue card stock.  Then I trimmed it to fit my card base.  Then I die cut and paper pieced my little gnome adding some detail with Copic Markers.  Across the bottom, I combined two different stamped sentiments in two different colors to add some interest to my card. A few sequins and a fuzzy pom pom on my gnomes had finish this fun little card.

CC Designs Snowmen Inchies

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a very fun card featuring the NEW Snowmen Inchies Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies!  

To create my card, I started with some fun patterned paper that featured a mountain scene.  Using some dies in my stash, I created a little winter scene complete with skating pond and trees.  I stamped out my images, colored them up with Copics, and cut them out using the coordinating outline dies.  Using foam tape, I popped them onto my scene.  For my sentiment, I die cut the word Joy and layered the Winter Sentiment on top.  

Such a whimsical little winter card! Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Crafting.
