Friendship Warms the Heart

Hello High Hopes Fans!
Did you see the amazing Woodland Friends Stamps release yesterday?

I love every single one of these adorable images!
Today I made a card using Fox Friends.

I used more paper from The Doodlebug Designs Happy Camper paper pack.
These fox look like some friends you might find in the woods when you are camping!

I colored the image with Prisma Color pencils and blended it with blending stumps and gamsol.

I used Prima Mktg. flowers.

The Dies are from Stampendous.

Newport Flower Box

Today I thought I would share a cute box I made with some of the newest dies from The Stamps of Life!  The flowers are the Newport Flower Dies.

The box was created using the new Handle Box Die.

The flowers were die cut from the Laugh Collection patterned paper pack.

The tag was made using stamps and dies from the Sizzix Tags, Stamps & Dies.

I will be using this box die a ton as I start wrapping gifts!

Jolly Holiday

Happy Monday!

It's back to work for a lot of us after the long holiday weekend but I am ready to go back.
I had such a productive weekend.

I nearly knocked out all my Christmas shopping and the decorations are done.

I'll have to admit, hubby and I may have looked a little like the pair below at one point on Saturday!

I colored the image with my Prisma Colored Pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.
The sentiment is from the Christmas Visions Perfectly Clear Set.

I used Dreamweaver Stencil, Christmas Lights Border on the top and bottom.
I stenciled with Regular Embossing Paste and when dry I returned the stencil and sponged ink on the stenciled image.

Lots more House Mouse Inspiration on the Stampendous Blog!

Happy Holidays!

Snug Bird

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family.
I had a double fun day as it was my birthday and Thanksgiving!

And now...the Christmas Countdown starts!

25 days till Christmas so I am sneaking in a Christmas card whenever I can.

This card was made with the Stencil Duo set, 
I traced the stencil with the black pen that comes with the set.
I added the dots and then I colored it with Prisma Color pencil and blended with gamsol.

The paper is from a fun Christmas pad by The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.

The sentiment is from the 'Tis the Season perfectly clear stamp set.

Check out more inspiration!
