Happy Holidays

 This holiday card was inspired by a video by Gina of Gina K Designs about a year ago. She used zig real brush markers to color and shade this poinsettia after embossing with white. I just love how it turned out. This card is for Gina K  Mix It Up Challenge for July and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Emboss IT.


 Pinkfresh Studio's July Challenge is all about BUTTERFLIES. Their recent stamp set was perfect for this card and a great inspiration. I used a Tim Holtz die for the background panel and Hello die from Hero Arts. 

Sending Love

 This card project is for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Emboss it." I used a SSS stamp, embossed in gold and water colored. The sentiment is from MFT.


 A quick post today for a card using Art Impression stamps, copic colored and matched up with some pretty patterned paper. This is for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

Winter Wishes

 I guess I am in a holiday mood because here's another card for Dec. 2021. This one uses a Gina K set which was part of the Stamptember collaboration with Simon Says Stamp over a year ago. The set is called FESTIVE FLOWER and it's one of my favorite stamps for a poinsettia! This one was colored with zig real brush markers and I added some shading around the flower and a music stamp in the background. Entering this in the Gina K July Challenge Christmas in July.

Merriest Wishes

 Making more holiday cards ahead of time, this card project features Gina K Design's "Peace and Joy" cardinal, water colored, with a sentiment from Penny Black. Entering this in the Gina K. Monthly Mix Challenge "Christmas in July" and the SSS Wed Challenge "Anything Goes."

Holly Jolly Season

 After coloring a bunch of birds from the MFT "Winter Songbirds" set, I made several cards for next year's holiday season. Here is the slimline one which I am entering in the MFT Slimline Challenge for June - "Things With Wings." I used a branch from a different set and added a few holly leaves, too. I am also adding it to the Simon Says Stamp Wed Challenge "Anything Goes."
