Snow Better Christmas

Hi all,
today I have a shaker card.
This card was so easy to make.

I started by die cutting a square.

Then stamping the New 

Snow Hello At Christmas Greeting


Snowman Bird Buddies
and coloring with Zig Clear Color markers.

I cut two fun foam frames and 1 from card stock then a square from Transparency Film and one more card stock square.

On the back I added another square that was scored at 1.5 Inches and glued it across the top.

This is a very simple way to make a  shaker card.

Have a wonderful day,

Twisted Thanks

Hi all,
today I want to share a 
Twisted Circular Easel Card
You can find the how to info 

For the stamping part I went old school the way I did thing back when I first started stamping.
I started by stamping the new 
Give Thanks Brush Pumpkin
with Versa Mark then heat embossing with gold powder on Bristol Paper. 
Then I used Tombow markers to color the image this paper makes blending so easy it also works wonderful with the Zig Clean and Clear markers. 
The image was fussy cut.

For the background I used part of the 

and Peacock Distress Ink.
 A white gel pen was used to traced around the die.

On the inside used some burlap ribbon.
I stamped the 
three times and colored them with Tombow markers. 
The leaves were attached with foam tape.

Have a wonderful day,

Background with Pumpkin

Hi everyone,

My card today goes along with the new background challenge.

I started by stamping the Simply Pumpkin with a black color box ink and clear embossing powder this was covered with a mask. I place the card back in my misty and stamped the 1 line Beauty of Autumn with Memento Coco ink moving the card 1/2 inch I stamped it again with Memento Peanut Brittle for each time it was stamped I moved the card 1/2 inch up or down to cove the card.

When this was finished I removed the mask and used Zig Clear Color to color the image. This was layered onto dark brown card stock then a white top fold card. 

I want to tell you about a new product that I have found it's Avery Removable Multipurpose Labels this works great for mask and they hold up well after using them you can put it back on the release paper and save them to use again later.

Have a wonderful day,

Fall Backgrounds

Hi all, it's time for the new DRS designs challenge. 

And the new challenge is

Stamp your own background

For my card I started with Polka Dot Background and white color box ink then white embossing powder.
On the other strip I stamped the Happy Fall Y'all 
In Memento Cantaloupe,Peanut Brittle, Tangelo, Distress Ink Peeled Paint.
I stamped the Add A Fence on kraft paper then I did a wash with Copic Opaque White and fussy cut.

I love making backgrounds you can use any stamp or technique.

The Lady Scarecrow was stamped with color box black then embossed with clear powder on to Range watercolor paper.

To color her I used my new Zig Clear Color marker.
This is the first time I have used them and I really do like them I think with a little practices these will be a fave. I love the rich bright colors they blend wonderful with each other and a little water goes a long way.

Have a wonderful day,
