Nutty or Nice??

Good Morning, Stampers!

I get asked a lot "How do you pick your colors"?  It's easy when you have fun Holiday papers like the ones from the Trim the Tree paper stack! Pull colors from your favorite DSP's for inspiration!


I colored the image using blender pens - an easy way to add color to any paper craft project!

Mingle the Holiday Way!

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today's card features an old technique - chalkboard. It's fun and one of the most easiest techniques to do! Simply stamp your image onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock using Whisper White ink. Rub your entire image using an embossing buddy and tap off the excess powder. How easy is that?!


I finished off the card by applying the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details as sparkly "berries"

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Mingle all the Way
Ink: Whisper White, Garden Green
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Garden Green
Accessories: Embossing Buddy, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Bird Punch, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, corner rounder, Large Polka Dot embossing folder
