Holiday Series 2016

2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 15, 16, and 17 of 25, OH MY!

Hey guys!  So I am lumping 3 days of my holiday card series into one post today to make things a little easier and to catch you guys up!

For day 15 I used a Unity Stamp Co. stamp called, Love Bug Christmas.  I water colored the image using Distress Inks and I really like the way it turned out.  Since I did a previous holiday card with a red truck, I decided to paint this one yellow.

On to day 16!  I used another Sunny Studio stamp set called Merry Sentiments.  This was another layering stamp set and if you know me, you know I love my layered stamps!  If you would like to see the process video, click here.  As always you will find a list of supplies there too.

Finally day 17… For this card I used Hero Arts Santa’s Elves.  This stamp set is sooooo cute!  I colored them with my Prismacolors and used the MFT Peekaboo die to make it appear they are behind the card peeking out.  Love this card.  If you want to see the process video, click here.  Enjoy!

I just love these shaker tags!!  I used Gerda Steiner’s Peeking Friends stamp set and MFT tag die set to create the sweet gift tags.  My original plan was not to make shaker tags, but as I was coloring and thinking about how I wanted to put them together, shaker tags was the only thing that made sense!

I used my Prismacolors to color in these cute little guys.  For the process video, click here. There you will find a list of supplies too!

Fall 2016 Fall Series

Fall 2016 Card Series | Day 8 of 10 | Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest

Hello you guys!  Welcome to day 8 in my fall card series.  We are nearing the end and even though I previously did a card with a scarecrow, I could not pass up using adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set.  Instead of using my go to with my Zig markers or Distress Inks, I busted out some Prismacolors I just recently purchased.  They happened to be on a pile of junk at Wal-Mart in the craft section with a big yellow sticker marking them at $10.00 for a 24 count.  I couldn’t pass them up as I have been eyeing them for a while.

I colored all my images with the Prismacolors and blended using Gamsol Mineral Spirits.  I am in love!!  The pencils are already so creamy and blending with the Gamsol was so easy and smooth.  I definitely like this alternative when I don’t want to use watercolors or my Zig Markers.  One day I will get Copics, but until then these are the next best thing in my opinion and much more cost effective!
