Checking In With a Few Cards

Hey there!

It's been quite awhile since my last blog post so I thought I should pop in and share a few recent cards I've created.

This first one took me all day long but I think the end results were worth it. I used Hero Arts' gorgeous Antique Poinsettia stamp. Love coloring it with Copic markers! I added a bunch of white dots with a gel pen for a snowy effect. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

Have you seen the newest, DieCember release from Simon Says Stamp? It's filled with fabulous products to celebrate our love of die-cutting! This next card uses the new, Curly Streamers die set. I cut out the two different streamers which come in the set, a few times each, with some glitter paper and added a sentiment. The silver gel pen dots add a bit more fun! This set could be used for many different occasions - birthdays, New Year's, retirement, or any kind of celebration.

And here is another new product from Simon's DieCember release. It's called Corbel Border and there are so many possibilities with this die! I cut it four times acros a panel, then added that cut-panel to a card base, which was ink-blended with some rainbow colors. So fun!
 On both of these last two cards, I used a wonderful stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp called, You Matter.

That's it from me today. I hope you're all getting finished making your holiday cards! Mine are all done, stamped, addressed and mailed out! Feels so good to be ahead of the game this year! (Another reason to be grateful for retirement.)

Hugs and happy stamping!
