Introducing Cocoa Sends Love

Hello Everyone! 

Cardmaking and blogging have taken a back burner here, as I am guessing it has for you as well, with all of the events and Christmas preparations.  But, I did make time for a brand new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Set, Cocoa Sends Love~


The set has multiple sentiments in it, ranging from love to Get Well, but it also works wonderfully for Christmas.  The image is colored with Copics, then fussy cut out.  I placed it in the middle of a large snow bank!  A forest of pines in the back was made with the Landscape Silhouettes Stamp Set.  I added touches of Christmas with the holly image from the new Christmas Borders Stamp Set.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Pine Stamp Set.  The elements are popped upon dimensional tape.  Sequins and some baker's twine finish it off.
I was inspired by the colors at The Color Throwdown this week~


Thanks so much for stopping by, and in case this is my last post before Christmas, 
Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Coffee Loving Snowman

Hello Everyone!

Today marks the beginning of Amy Tsuruta's Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, Winter edition!
Check out all of the inspiration- coffee, tea or hot chocolate style- and link up your creation on the blog to join her!


Not sure if it is the busyness of the Christmas season or if I am just worn out, but the MOJO has been sorely lacking.  CAS was the way to go for this warm beverage themed winter card~


I used the sweet snowman from Sweet 's Sassy Stamps' Snowman Soup Stamp Set.  He is colored with Copics.  The background snowflakes are 3rd generation stamping. The snowflakes are from the new Holiday Hugs Stamp Set. I pieced my sentiment together using the new Rebecca Script Alpha and some individual words from other stamp sets.
And this is a SLC, too!  It is not too often that I can do that!

I used the colors in the inspiration photo at Pinspirational Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by; be sure to visit the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog for all the details, including info on prizes!

Have a warm, blessed weekend!

Vintage Christmas

Hello and Happy Monday! 

Hope your weekend was a good one! 

Today's card was made with the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Stamp Set, Old Fashioned Christmas


This single stamp is a silhouette image, but with the MISTI stamping tool, it makes adding multiple layered colors to this stamp a snap.  I used various shades of greens and brown for the tree trunks.  Once the image was completed, I cut a mask for it and sponged in the pink winter sky. 
To create the snow fall, I spattered some watered down white acrylic paint. 
I embellished with pine cones from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Set, Christmas Pine

I am linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, 'Anything Goes'. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week!

Anything Goes with Addicted to Stamps

Hello and Happy Tuesday, Everyone!


It is Anything Goes week at Addicted to Stamps and More.  Since everyone is coloring this month for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I thought I would color up this gorgeous new Unity Girl.
I have a niece who is away at her first semester of college.  She is in South Dakota and has already experienced her first blizzard of the season.  :)  So this card will go to her!
I kept the card simple to keep the focus on the image.  A few sequins add sparkle.

I am linking up to Inkspirational, where this week the challenge is,


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you can join us this week!

This month's stamps have been so much fun to play with.  I have been saving my favorite image for last- these darling stockings in the Jolly Jingles Stamp Set!


I had so much fun with this card- from the colors to the coloring to the watercolor background.
The stockings were colored with Copics and then die cut out with the matching dies.  Tiny sequins adorn the tips of the stockings and I have added glitter to the fringe at the top of the stockings.
The background was made using the  Stencil Monoprint technique on watercolor paper.
