Card Recipe:
Stamped the images on watercolor paper with Silver Pigment ink and again with versamark. Clear embossing powder was then applied and each panel heat set. Images were watercolored using Zig Clean Colors and the backgrounds on each panel were done using Gansai Tambi Pearl watercolors. Various Nuvo drops were used for the ornaments. To create the shaker My Favorite Things Peek A Boo window die was used on each panel to assure correct fit, then again on each blue patterned paper panel. MFT shaker pouches were used to create the shaker portion and I used various sequins and seed beads from my stash for the filling. Neenah 110lb card stock was cut to A2 size for all cards. All layers attached to front and the sentiment if from my stash embossed with ranger blue tinsel embossing powder

Vintage Snowman

Vintage Snowman


Hey crafty friends, Amy Here and today is my day to take over the blog.
I decided to use the Happy Snowman stamp from Victorine Originals!!
He is just too cute and since I love the way vintage snowman look.
Those would be the colors I went with.
Heres my Card


I started out by stamping my image in brown. I then colored my image with colored pencils. But only the hat and the scarf. 
I then added ink to the sides to give a distress look. 
I chose my colored papers to match and layered them. 
I also added the sentiment Merry Christmas
Using rub ons.

Thinking of You





Happy Saturday everyone,
Heather here taking over the blog today with this adorable little kitty stamp from the Raisin Boat set called Wild About Ewe, Honey.

I needed a thinking of you/get well type message and felt this little guy would brighten anyone's day.  So lets get started with how this came together.
I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the kitty in a dark brown hybrid ink then water colored him, we have an orange tabby that I used as my inspiration.  

I then did a distress oxide wash behind him and cut him out with a square rectangle stitched die from my stash.  I went with an A2 sized, top fold dark grey card base and then found some super cute and fun paw print paper in grey colors in my craft room that was perfect.  I cut that down to 4" x 5 1/4" and put it onto the card base where I then laid down the dark grey band and popped up the kitty with some fun foam and put him on top. I wanted to add a sentiment as I am sending this to someone who is very special to our family and needs a pick me up and I immediately grabbed my Victorine Originals Elegant Sayings and used the beautiful Thinking of You.  It was a cute, easy and quick card to make and I am sure it will be loved when it is received.  

Have a great day, supplies are pictured below and don't forget to enter into our current challenge. Click on the pictures to link directly to the Mood Board or products used on my card.

Happy Holidays


Hi and welcome back. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper taking over the blog today and sharing a few Happy Holiday cards featuring the Raisin Boat - Treemendous Stamp Set. I love stamp sets that give you loads of creative options and this one does not disappoint. 


Both cards are super simple, stamping with your favorite color inks and layering on patterned paper, easy peasy. You can use whatever color ink best matches your background paper. My favorite inks right now are Memento Inks, I've been using Memento for years and they never fail me.

White Rabbit Herald Card

Good morning! Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today. I created this whimsical White Rabbit card to share with you.
The stamp I used is Victorine Originals' Large White Rabbit Herald from Alice in Wonderland.  I stamped and heat embossed the image on white cardstock.  I colored in a few parts with red marker, but kept it very simple.
The rest of the card was built with coordinating patterned papers and rectangle die cuts.  Embellishments include red crinkled seam binding, a metal key, and red adhesive pearls.  For more details on this card, head on over to MY BLOG!
And now for some SUPER EXCITING news!  I submitted this card to Rubber Stamp Madness magazine and much to my surprise it was selected for publication!  It was such an honor to see that in print.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
