Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
Wishing all of you a wonderful day filled with good food, good memories and many many bountiful blessings. I'm beyond grateful for those of you who stop by and share a few minutes of your day with me whether by reading my blog and commenting or clicking links and shopping or by just reading and enjoying this creative journey with me. You've stopped here because of a common interest in paper crafting and am so very grateful that the internet has allowed like minded crafters from all over the world to be able to interact and inspire each other. Thank you friends. You make the work it takes to maintain and update this blog so very worthwhile and I appreciate you very much!
Today I'm thrilled to be sharing a couple of new cards & videos over on the Studio Calico blog HERE.
I was honored to get to play with both the Studio Calico Blue Note Card Kit and Cole Card Kit Add On. Both feature exclusive stamps from Mama Elephant which you guys know I love, love, love!
From the Blue Note Card Kit I created this birthday card with a more masculine look and feel. The colors I used for my stamping were pulled directly from the paper choices I picked from the 6x6 papers in the kit.
I used Stampin' Up Markers to color in each line of the text in the greeting a different color and coordinating Stampin' Up Ink pads to stamp the candles and flames! (p.s. How awesome is it that the flames are a seperate stamp making it super easy to create realistic looking candles?!!!!)
- Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise Marker
- Stampin' Up Lucky Limeade Marker
- Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight Marker
- Stampin' Up Midnight Muse Marker
- Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight Ink Pad
- Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise Ink Pad
- Stampin' Up MIdnight Muse Ink Pad
- Stampin' Up Lucky Limeade Ink Pad
My next card features the ME stamp set from the SC Cole Add On Kit and is a fun winter themed design that works for the holidays or anything winter-themed!
I thought the wonderful gray and white snowflake paper in the kit provided a wonderful snowy background for the winter stamped scene! The trees, boy, snowman, hat, snowy border, greeting and stamped splatters are all from the stamp set!
Be sure to check out the Studio Calico blog HERE for video tutorials on both of the cards I created with the December Card Kit and Add On Kit!
Thanks for stopping by and come back tomorrow for links on Black Friday cyber steals and deals (you don't have to get out of your jammies or fight the crowds to shop....now that's my kind of Black Friday! ha!)!
