Cute Snowmen

I borrowed this cute stamp from my friend, so fun to color. I used watercolor pencils, shimmer chalk, and copic spica pens. All paper is Stampin Up!

Future fashionista

Each month I get a scrapbook kit in the mail from Scraptivity! and this layout features the Fancy Pants paper that I received in the kit. This is a picture of Claire proudly sporting her new hat that looks like Auntie Laura's.

Last thank you

Here's the last thank you card for Charlotte's preschool teacher. I brayered the background with desert sun Kalediscope ink pad. I learned that using the brayer on a foam stamping pad improves the look of the ink a lot!

Another thank you card

This is a cute set from the Stampin Up! mini catalogue called Scene in a garden. Again, I used watercolor pencils to color the scene. The flowers are both cream colored but I painted the red one with Shimmerz paint.

Teacher thank you cards

I bought this stamp at the Carousel this week, I thought it would be perfect for teacher thank you cards. I used watercolor pencils, SU! blender pen and some stickles for extra sparkle!

A flower for all Seasons

This little frog by SU! is so cute. I think it just makes the card feel cheery. I used watercolor pencils to color this time, Robin's Dew Drops in the corners. The rest is SU paper-this is the 3rd card I did in my class last week.

Steve's birthday card

I made this for Steve's 39th birthday last Tuesday, but it also served as one of the cards we made for the class I did on Thursday! How's that for dual purpose? Anyhow, stamps and paper are all Stampin Up! I love this tree, it's so beautiful, lots of glitter on the leaves in real life.

Russian Doll

This is a simple card I made last night for Carousel Rubber Stamps. I used the new Quickutz embossing folder and the little Russian Doll reminds me of one that my Aunt Lucy had. I used to play with it when I visited her house, and was amazed at how little the wooden dolls became, but still painted with so much detail!
