Getting Ready

       Hi Friends...I just wanted to take a second and show you a few of the cards I've put togther this week. Unfortunately, we've had a lot of sickness going around as the temperatures decided to drastically drop, so I haven't felt much like blogging. I have however, felt like crafting as much as I could as a way to escape my flu. So of course I decided I may as well start getting ready for the Holidays....what do you think?

My first card was made using an adorable set from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence line. This set is called "Pretty Pumpkin". After stamping this adorable little girlie with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink...I colored her in with Copic markers, paper pieced her skirt, and added some fun jewels from Bo Bunny's recent Halloween line. I also added a bit of glitter from my Wink Of Stella pen (which I can't seem to go without now)....and used a cute foam sticker as her trick-or-treat bag, and tied a bow with some ribbon I found at my local craft store. I just love how this turned out! A perfect little Halloween card for my little girl this year!!

     This next card was made using a newer stamp from Newton's Nook called "Wagon of Wishes". This set has the most adorable images on it including different ways of filling up your little wagon. I chose to use the image of their kitty "Newton".....laying on a pile of pumpkins and place him in the wagon which I paper pieced with some cute red card stock. I colored the rest of the image with my Copic markers and added some fun embellishments.

    This third card was really quick, but I just love how it turned out. I actually came up with this one while trying to fall asleep the night before (yes.....I admit that I sleep, dream, and think of stamping 24/7...don't you?) I used the new Hero Arts "Color the Tree" woodblock stamp as my focal point on this card.  I stamped my image with Memento ink in "Bamboo Leaves". I then covored all the open dots/leaves with Doodlebug sprinkles from their recent Fall and Halloween sets. Then I added some clear Wink of Stella to the solid stamped dots/leaves....a little twine, some dash lines, and tada!! Finished :) .....and LOVIN IT!!

    My last card was my first try at a Christmas card for the year.....actually the first Christmas card ever....hehe!!
    Last week I was at my local Archiver's store and found the cutest reindeer punch by EK Success! I knew this would be an adorable addition to my Doodlebug card stock that I recently purchased as well. Can I tell you, I absolutely love Doodlebug right now. They have the absolute most cutest card stock, flair, stickers, twine, name it!! I am in love!!! Anyway, I paired the punch together with the card stock.....added some sink of stella to my reindeer to give them some sparkle........colored their noses (notice Rudolph in the I then adhered them with some 3D foam squares to look like they are flying over the cutest Christmas town below printed on my Doodlebug card stock. I then adhered that to some kraft card stock that I had stamped with the Hero Arts "Tiny Star Background" in their silver ink. The sentiment was also stamped in silver from the Hero Arts set "Bring on the Merry," Last but not least, a little twine, some Doodlebug sprinkles (also from their Holiday line).....and a foam candy cane sticker. ENJOY :)
