2017 Holiday Mini Favorite

The Sisters in Stamping are picking their favorite stamp sets from the newly released 2017 Holiday Mini Catalog. Here is my card--

The set I used from the Mini Catalog is called Hug in a Mug, the set comes with 32 images:

It's my favorite from the Holiday Mini because it's so versatile! Just think of all the mugs you could stamp with it.

See you next week! Karla 😉

Manly Pink?

There have been some technical difficulties at the Sisters in Stamping, I think we have figured it out. We are doing Masculine cards this week, here is my card--

I used Watts of Occasions stamp set, it's another new one in the 2017-18 Idea Book & Catalog. I did some sponging on the light bulb to make it look lit up, and then a sponge dauber to color in the heart. I realize pink is not a masculine color but this card has a real guy feel to it.

Manly, I think so. What do you think of the pink?

Happy Stamping, Karla 😉

Fall Treat

This is one of the new stamp sets from the 2017-18 Idea Book & Catalog called Colorful Seasons. There is a option in the catalog to bundle the set with a matching Framelit set called Seasonal Layers (17 dies) for a 10% discount. I used the Baby Wipe Technique (found here) to color my leaves in (reinkers used: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie) and the gold leaf was made with my BigShot and a die from the Framelit set.

Thank-you for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping, Karla 😊

With Sympathy

I used the Thick Very Vanilla card stock (#144237, $7.00), it's new in the catalog this year. It works well for card bases, but it's great for watercoloring too. I used sponges to color my flowers.

Black-eyed Susans

Hello! It's BigShot Day over at the Sisters, here is my card--

I picked the Stitched Framelits as my BigShot favorite....I just can not keep my hands off of those! I used the new set called Orange Blossom to make my Susans giving them their black eyes with a sponge dauber.
