Sweet Blended Nutcracker


This is another image I colored with my Stampin Blends markers.
I colored with Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight, and Ivory.
I enjoyed coloring the nutcracker here from the Sugarplum Dreams set
in red and then I did it again in blue which I will post at a later date.
I already had this pieces cut and left over from a card class so I only 
had to cut the image with a oval and layer with a Real Red scallop oval.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thanksgiving and GDP114 Hot Chocolate X 6






First, A Happy Thanksgiving to all!
We go out to eat after watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade!
So it will be a easy day until about 6 pm when I concentrate 
on a little online shopping!


For the card:
I had my Hug in a Mug set out from yesterday's card
I just had to use it today. I stamped the mugs in Early Espresso six times
and punch with the 1 1/4" sq punch.  I stamped the inside with Soft Suede
and added the marshmallows in Crumb Cake ink.  I just had to add
a Real Red candy cane to one of them!
I layered them on a piece of Real Red stamped with a sentiment
from the same set. Some Wood Textures DSP was calling and I finished it 
off with some white twine and a bow.
I hope you can play with the sketch challenge over at 
global-design-project.com this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving and a wonderful weekend!

PP371 Sending Warm Thoughts




I had colored the cup and lid from Merry Cafe a little over a week ago
when I stamped a bunch of images and sat down with my new 
Stampin Blends markers.  I colored the cup with 
the Crumb Cake markers and the lid with Cherry Cobbler.
I added them to this layout as I like the red and the thought 
of hot cocoa plus some snowflakes would be great inspiration.
The sentiment is from the Hug In A Mug set, the snowflakes plus the "steam"
are dies from Swirly Snowflakes and the DSP is Quilted Christmas.
Hope you can play along too over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com

Two For One Birthday Cards!



I have two cards for you today!
I was asked to make these for a friend.

Card One: I stamped this card with the High Tide set.
I pulled my classic colors-Crumb Cake, Island Indigo and Cherry Cobbler.
These colors are prefect for this set!
I did used the sentiment from Guy Greetings to finish it off.

Card Two: I used the Balloon Celebration set with a Pool Party background.
I stamped the clouds in white craft ink but they do not show up as 
well in the photo here.
I stamped the balloons in Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.
I used Memento Tuxedo Black for the strings and the sentiment
I grabbed from Birthday Banners stamp set.
I used the balloon punch and popped them up.
I finished it off with some enamel shapes. 

I hope you have a doubly blessed day!
Thanks for stopping by!

A Red Door Merry Christmas



Love red doors! I colored this one a few weeks ago 
when I received my new Stampin' Blends markers.
It was colored with Cherry Cobbler.I used Old Olive kind of dark 
on the greenery with more Cherry for the berries.
I used Smoky Slate for the pot so I 
cut a Smoky Slate mat for my sentiment.
I layered them all on a piece of 
Wood Textures DSP and then a piece of 
thick Whisper White for the base.
I did add a little So Saffron card stock behind the window
in the door for a light on look.
I hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!

FMS313 Snowflake Blessings




When I saw this sketch, I envisioned snowflakes. Since I wanted my 
die cut snowflakes white, I used Soft Sky for a background and stamped
in that same color for the snowflakes in the Colorful Season set.
I used the dies from Seasonal Layers with thick Whisper White for my cut snowflakes.
I decided to use Night of Navy and a sentiment from the same stamp set
in the center.  Some rhinestones for bling finished it off. 
I hope you can play along over at freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com 
for this fun sketch.
Have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!

TTTC024 Autumn Greetings For My Dad




I decided to go down the first column with
Angled, Die Cut, Greeting.
I used the angled DSP from Painted Autumn...love those watercolored stripes!
I did much die cutting with the Lantern Builder framelits dies.
I also used the matching stamp set with the lovely sentiment or greeting!
I sent this off to my dad and step mom the day I made it for a Thanksgiving card.
I hope you can play along today over at
