Peace on Earth

Hello! It's been a few days since I last posted. I went down to FL to visit my mom and sister. It was HOT, HOT, HOT down there!!

I couldn't wait to get back on my Christmas cards once I got back. I have quite the stack growing so I won't be rushing around at the last minute.

I created this little scene with Flora & Fauna stamps from the Home for the Holidays stamp set. I can't get enough of this moose!! I made his car purple and I am sending this to my sister since she has always wanted a purple car! LOL

The Crafter's Cafe's challenge is school related or coffee or tea

This week's challenge at The Crafter's Cafe is school related or tea or coffee. I chose this graduation cap by Eureka Stamps and you can find the digi here. I colored the cap with my C9 Copic marker then wrote "Class of 2019" using my white Signo uni-ball pen. The flowers background is like a huge piece of washi tape I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. This card went together super fast!

I would love to see your creations at The Crafter's Cafe.

The road to my heart is paved with paw prints

This is a "new to me" technique and I found this you tube video showing me how to make this black embossed magic card. First, I stamped the image using Versamark ink onto black cardstock. I added the WOW white embossing powder (I really think WOW is the best embossing powder out there!), dried it with my heat tool till it was shiny and then I colored the bear and grass using my copic markers. Different shades of green for the grass and different shades of brown for the bear. Worked like magic!!

It is so hard to find the right words

A sympathy card I made using this Concord & 9th flower stamp set. I colored it with my tombow markers and water. I love how that bright blue flower pops right off the card!

May God who understands each need ...

Stamp by Stampendous

For this card, I did a technique I learned from Lydia's you tube video called Duoprinting with Chlorophyl and you can see her video here. This plant is called a Boxwood and I went outside and pulled off some branches and put them through my Big Shot and voila! A neat leaf impression.
I love doing this technique for sympathy cards.
