Happy Hanukkah!

Hello Bloggers!  Just wanted to wish all of my Jewish friends a Happy Hanukkah and share a couple of cards that I created.  This is a great time of year and only wish the day was longer than 24 hours so that I could get all that I want to do done.  Have a great evening and check back to see some Christmas projects that I've been working on.

This is a Lily, a digital stamp from Pink Cat Studio.  She's colored with my copic markers and I also used my Cuttlebug swirls folder for the background. Snowflakes embossed with clear embossing powder then inked with distress inks, then edged with a Martha Stewart punch.  A little sparkly ribbon and a homemade stickpin finish it up.  I have to admit, that the inspiration for this card came from Suzanne Dean.  I just love her copic coloring techniques and have learned a lot from her. Check out her blog!

This is a very simple card.  The Star of David was cut with my Cricut using the Joys of the Season cartridge.  The middle star was cut using metallic tape and the I applied alcohol inks, the small star is bronze metallic tape.  Both were embossed using the cuttlebug.

Thanksgiving Cards

Well, so much for my posting once a week.  I had good intentions, but I just couldn't quite keep up with the posts.  Anywho, here are some cards I've been working on for the last few days.  They'll be going out in the mail tomorrow.  I typically don't make cards for Thanksgiving, but I bought a Fall-themed stamp set from Joanne's  a couple of months ago and had to use it.  They were fun to make, but now on to Christmas projects.  Will attempt to keep updates coming regulary.  Until then, have a great Monday evening.

The stamp set is Pumpkins & Flourish from Inkadinkado, colored using my copic markers.  The card base is kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink, mat is K&Company, Tim Coffey Fall Mat Pad.  I cut out the image using my new Nestabilities label #4.

The inspiration for this came from CardMaker magazine.  This is a new subscription for me and I LOVE it.  Simple card desgins and instructions to make them.  The turkey is paper-pieced using papers from the Tim Coffey mat stack.

This little guy is my fave.  This is Itty Bitty Bobby from Pink Cat Studio Digi Stamps colored with my copic markers.  Card base is More Mustard from Stamin Up and mat is from the Tim Coffey mat stack.
