Anyway, while searching, I found several great tutorials on how to make them. They really are super easy! So I made a quick little set just to try them out! Here is the result....
This took me like 2 minutes! Super easy and you know these cost like $2 + at the store. I bet this cost me pennies!
Thanks for stopping by!!

I know we are past the holidays but I had to use one of the stamps that goes along with this set. Here is a Christmas Hello.....
It is a handy set because it comes with several stamps for the middle of the "O".
For this next card I kept the "O" blank and just added a button! How cute is that?
So I hope I changed my friends mind! We will see! Let me know what you think!

These stamps are from TAC's "I Heart You" set! I stamped the background in Versamark and then UTEE'd like 3 times to get the chunky, wet look! The faux stitching is with my new white gel pen that beats ALL gel pens! It is so thick and bright white! Love it!
Hope you like my card today! Let me know what you think!

Hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas! Remember Jesus is the reason for the season!!
I am going to leave you with a Christmas Poem....
The Real Reason
Excitement and joy are filling the air;
The wreaths and the trees and the parties

So here is a fun card I made tonight!
These are all Hero Arts stamps! So fun! The paper and the ribbon is Raspberry Fizz from PTI!
I just had to use these colors to throw something "Springy" in today! It is so cold here in Kansas! I love the snow but I am already ready for some warm! :)
Hope your Friday is a good one!

Here is my sketch for today:
And my sample:
Wednesday, December 9, 2009
My WOSFF, Barb, knows of my passion! SO, she drew me her a mushroom she knew I would love! I am just convinced Barb needs to start her own stamp line! She is amazing!
I wanted to save her drawing so I added it to a card! Of course no one will ever get this card! I am going to hang it on my wall!
I used PTI's Ripe Avacado paper, Pure Poppy Ribbon and Polka Dot Basic stamp in this card! the sentiment is from TAC's Dear Friend! I did add a little color to the mushroom top with a red colored pencil and gamsol!
Hope you like my card and Barb's fabulous artwork! Thanks for stopping by today!

I collect snowmen and love putting them out for Christmas! I did realize, though, that I don't have very many snowman stamps! I can't wait to check out the rest of the stops on this Snowman Blog Hop, just to get some more inspiration and see what stamps I can't live without!
When you are done checking out my creations, go to the end of this post and click on the links to take you to the other stops in this hop!
This first card turned out so fun! I love the snow background and of course, the nesties!
Here is one more ridiculously simple card! White cardstock, stamp, black pen red pen. That easy! But kinda cute I think!
Hope this gives you some ideas for your own holiday cards! Now don't forget to check out these other stops on the Snowman Blog Hop!

First off....nesties! Love them! This card is just two layers using the biggest nestie from Labels 1. Then I folded a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 whit card base and attached it to the back.
Second fun thing....PTI cardstock and matching ink! This is Ripe Avocado cardstock and the image is stamped with the matching Ripe Avocado Palette Ink! And the button matches perfectly doesn't it? This is the most fantastic 110lb paper ever!! (if you are a paper junky like me....you know what I mean!)
And then the stamp! This is from TAC's Joy of Christmas! I just love those bold images that can make a super fast and simple card! I colored in the white space with a Clear Gelly Roll pen and it makes for some fantastic sparkle!
I thought these would make great little cards for gifts or even for place settings at a Holiday dinner! Possibilities are endless!

Here is just a quick and simple card I made today using PTI and TAC. The Running Stitches are from TAC, along with the Merry Christmas sentiment. The polka dots and that fantastic Pure Poppy button are from PTI. What a great combo!
Yes, I know I am back to red and brown! I can't help it! My favorite colors! Hope you like it! Have a great day!

I have seen this one in The Angel Company catalog and just really never thought much about it, until one day I realized that I could use it! Now I am so happy to have it! It is very versatile for it being just one stamp in a set! You can emboss it, color it, make it vintage, make it sparkle....on and on! So here are two examples of its possibilities!
This first one I stamped in Burnt Umber and cut off the border. Clean and simple! (Yes I did distress again...what is the world coming to?)
This one I stamped in Versamark on vellum and then I used American Crafts Zing Embossing Powder and heated it up! Wow does that stuff make an incredible image! It is so nice and thick! It think this image looks perfect embossed!

The glitter strips through the middle are made from Wonder tape and Martha Stewart glitter! The "wintery" look is so much fun!
The sentiment is from Vintage Santa again. One more fantastic sentiment from that set!
Thanks for stopping by today!

I took my Tombow white pen and added the stitch line around the circle. So simple and easy and it turned out so FUN!
Hope you like it! Have a great day!
