Merry Chrismoose

Got my stamps from Katie today at they are so adorable but I have to work tonight so only got a chance to ink one of them. Isn't he too cute. I put a moose quickutz on the inside also. I colored him in copics and added liquid applique to the snow. Love him....

Elzybells - Sliding

I received my latest Elzybells order the other day and this precious stamp was part of that order. Isn't it too cute. I love the colors I picked for this one also. I colored it with my copics and added flocking for the trim and penguins belly. I used metallic thread along the edge. It was also embossed in black. I got the little penguin inside too cause he is great for insides of cards and the verse is also Elzybells..

Elzybells - Christmas

I have been very busy on my days off. You know its wierd sometimes I can sit in my scraproom and can't think of anything to do and then other times I am so full of ideas that I can't do cards fast enough. That was this week haha.

These are my christmas stamps I just received from Elzybells I just love them. I buy straight from the UK Site cause I like the bigger ones rather than the smaller ones which are on the US site. I also have those because the UK site was closed but I so enjoy the larger ones better. Both links are on the slide.

I also posted the inside of 2 of the cards cause I love to do the insides of my cards too. I have also been decorating the envelopes but I am currently out of envelopes I had to call my supplier and have an order rushed to me haha..

So lets see the Penguins are colored in copics and the saying is Amuse. The next one with the reindeer also done in copics. Don't those quickutz dies go great on this card. Inside saying also Elzybells. Last card done in copics too and inside saying and santa penguin also Elzybells. Nothing special on the cards but they did seem to take awhile to do.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

Spiral Whisper - Puppy Dog

Here is another great stamp from Spiral Whispers. This poor little puppy was injured when I received him I can't get it to stamp an image there is a line through him in a couple spots. I fixed it with a copic pen. Anyone know how to fix those? I just love the stamp though.

I only have to work 2 days next week so I am excited about that. I work a job where I have to work holidays unless it falls on my day off but I get to pick another day off so it's not too bad. Then my youngest starts school next Tuesday. I am still wondering where the summer went.

Spiral Whisper - Kitty

Isn't this card way too cute. This stamp is from Spiral Whispers from the UK. I just received my order the other day and had to ink them up. This one is embossed in black and then colored with copics. I also sewed along the edges. Paper is Chatterbox I think. I had it in my stash of scraps. Which I could use out of that stash all year and would still be huge. Flowers are Prima and brads are Making memories I think.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Penny Black - New Christmas Penguin

This is a new Penny Black stamp that I bought from HMstamps. I colored it with markers and made parts of it 3d. The background I took a piece of vellum from Papertrey Ink and embossed it in my cuttlebug. Isn't it just too cute. I also took my red stickles and went along the edge of the scallops as I couldn't find any red ep in my stash.
Hope everyone is having a great week...

3 Doors Down - Hinder - Stained and Jet Black

Long day at the Fair yesterday. We got to our concert and it rained off an on. Bottom picture is kinda blurry cause it was night but shows how many people were there. It was a sold out show. I ended up with a bad headache by the time it was done from everyone smoking haha... Next picture going up is a band called Jet Black, I never heard of them but they were pretty good if you like that kind of music which I do. Next band was Hinder which they are excellent and next band was Staind and then 3 Doors down. One of the 3 doors down picture you can see was when it was light out because we sat earlier in the day watching them from afar. That lead singer rocks that is for sure. They had a nice light show.
My son is also up from his dads so no time to make cards. We went and seen that movie The Mummy today which was good. Tomorrow him and my youngest if its nice I am dropping off at the Water Slide park for the day so maybe I can get a couple cards done then.
Anyways hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend..

Cornish Heritage Farm - Saturday Evening Post

Today I am going to show you a card I did from Cornish Heritage Farms. As you are aware of I am sure they have specialty stamps that you can't buy from anywhere else like Thomas Kinkade, Sandra Kuck, Saturday Evening Post and Elvis. This stamp just came out. Again being challenged as it is not one that you could make 3d. I still love it none the same. This one I colored in my Copic markers and distressed the eges of it to add a little something. Also sewed along the edges of the card. These stamps stamp very well. Lots of detail as you can see.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week...

Impression-Obsession - Holiday Cactus

This is another card from Impression-Obsessions. Its another new one called Holiday Cactus. I thought it was so cute for someone that doesn't live where there is snow like here of course. I colored this with Copics and made parts of it 3d. I added stickles to the lights and lacquer to each lightbulb. Again like the rest of their stamps its different that is what I like about it. I sewed along the edges also.

Impression-Obsession - Candy Corn Tree

This is a new stamp that was just released from Impression-Obsession. It's called Candy Corn Tree. I love their stamps cause they are very unique that you don't find anywhere else. I embossed this one in black and then sponged the sky and the ground with my distress ink. I colored each candy corn and then cut each candy corn out and made it 3d. It was kinda time consuming but I love how it turned out. The photo Anchors are from Stampin Up Hodge Podge kits which those ones are now retired. And isn't that fence along the inside too dang cute. That is from Martha Stewart for the Halloween collections. The saying is also Impression-Obsession.

Sandra Kuck - The Prayer

Isn't this card just adorable. Its by Sandra Kuck and they can be found at Cornish Heritage Farms. They have 3 different ones so far. I have 2 out of the 3. The third one looked too time consuming to me so I didn't get it. I stamped this one on Papertrey White cardstock and then I colored it with Copic Markers. I have a hard time doing these sometimes because I like to make my cards 3d and these are impossible to do that with.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. It's back to work for me this evening.
