Pretty Kitty Card – Coloring with Markers

JenniferCards, Techniques1 Comment

I saw this general card idea from Shannon Jaramillo a while back when I needed some inspiration for a card.  But as I usually do with cards, I took some of my favorite elements from the card, and then tweaked some of the other details to get to use some of my favorites too! I wanted to focus on the cute kitty from the Pretty Kitty stamp set, and all of the images from that set are outline images – so they just BEG to be colored in!  And so I went with the easiest way to color, my Stampin’ … Read More

I was all stoked about the Online Extravaganza, and I knew the Holiday Catalog retiring list was coming soon… but I didn’t know until just a couple days ago that Stampin’ Up was going to up the ante by coming out with a full Year-End Closeout sale! Of course, they didn’t tell me what was going to be in the sale or exactly how it was all going to work, so I had to wait until this morning to check it out.  But now that I’ve figure out all the deals and possible confusion points, I wanted to make sure … Read More

So yesterday I shared a Christmas card with Lovely as a Tree, so today I thought I’d share another idea with the same stamp set only NOT Christmas!  It uses another fun techinique – Faux Torn Edges – that I love for my clean and simple cards.  It is also great if you are doing a challenge for a single layer card too! How to do Faux Torn Edges: Rip a piece of paper, preferably something thin like copy or printer paper, so you have the torn edge pattern you like. Place the torn edge across your cardstock and hold … Read More

Vintage Christmas Card with Clear Block Stamping

JenniferCards, Christmas0 Comments

I have totally had a crafting-crush on these Mini Pinecones embellishments since I first got a chance to play with them.  They are so little, but oh so details and super cute!  My biggest challenge was actually getting them out of the container and onto my projects. Between the “don’t want to use them up” and trying to figure out where to put a 3D embellishment (though it is little so, it is still possible to mail), I just kept admiring them on my desk.  Come on, admit it… you have something like that in your craft goodies too. 🙂 … Read More
