Stamps of Life November Color Challenge

This card is entirely stamped with Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnard. It was a color challenge using the colors Bright Green, Light Pink and Dark Pink. I added glitter pen to the snowflakes and the lines of snow globe. The snow is Petal Soft's Polar White. I stamped the greeting with black ink and embossed it with clear powder. The tree has Pink Stickles on the ornaments. All three images are pop dotted. I used a Southwest Corner Punch to wrap the thread around the mat.

Birthday Card for Chris

The image was stamped with a really old stamp from Stamp Studio. It was one of the first few stamps I purchased when I began stamping. It is stamped in Momento Ink, Cocoa. I cut the image out of a square Nestability. I air brushed the the background with Copic E41 before removing it from the nestie. The images are colored with Copics. The greeting is from Sweet Stamps and was stamped in black, embossed with clear powder.

Mo's Digital Challenge November 18, 2009

For this week's challenge I used Mo's Christmas Tree sizing and printing on White Cryogen. The tree is colored with Copics and Spicas. I cut the tree and background out of Nestabilities. The ornament was created from a circle punch. The glitter is Art Institute. My very supportive husband, suggested the ornament. The swirls are Quickutz. The DP is Basic Grey. I am not happy with the photo because the colors are not correct. Try as I may, I couldn't correct them further. This was taken from a sketch and I do not know how to show that. Guess I will have to learn.

Copic Colors:
Tree G82, G29
Trunk E47
Star Y08, Spica Gold
Dirt E43, E47
Gingerbreads E34 and Sepia Multiliner
The ornaments etc are colored with Spicas

My Very First Christmas Card

I thought this would be fun to add. This is the first stamped Christmas Card I made in 2001. The angels are from Stampa Rosa. They are stamped on Vellum. I colored the back of the image with Fresco Chalk Inks using a stipple brush. They are matted on antique gold matte cardstock. The glitter corners are red liner tape and Art Institute Glitter. I enjoyed the trip down memory lane. The finished sized is an A2.

Card for a Friend

I needed this card in a hurry. I had been going thru my 'stash' and I found this kit from Bazzill. I decided it worked for a quick card. The greeting I am not sure of, I think it is Stampendous. The reason I am not sure is because I have recently begun to unmount all my wood mounted stamps. I need to lighten the load when travelling in our RV. The ink is SU's pigment, Chocolate Chip and it is embossed with Rangers Rainbow Sparkle Powder. The flowers were airbrushed with Copics YG03 and YG25. The finished size is 5 7/8" square.
