Christmas Cheetah

Hi again... here is my second entry into the Less is More week 34.  I'm not sure it quite counts 'cause even though they are in opposite corners, there's not much distance between them.  Anyway this is my Christmas Cheetah stamped in black and i used a red colored pencil to color in the hat.  Merry Christmas is stamped in red.  Hope you like my silly Christmas card.  If not i hope it at least made you smile.  Have a great day!  Here is where you can check out the Less is More site to see more.http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/

Black and White with a hint of color

Hello... here is my entry to the http://stampotiquedesignerschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/09/sdc38-black-white-and-hint-of-color.html  I used the Harvest Moon stamp in black ink, masked the moon and then sponged with a hint of stormy sky ink.  I layerd this onto black cardstock, and pop-dotted onto the swirl panel. The embossed swirl panel is a cuttle bug embossing folder.  I made sure to stamp Winter before embossing.  DTP with black ink on edges of swirl panel. layered onto white card.  You can't tell but I used glitter for snow on the small panel. Thanks for looking.

Stamps i used:
Harvest Moon - Memory Box     
Winter - Hero Arts

Prom Queen

Hello... Today i have a neat card i made using Stampotique stamps.  I can't get enough of them.  I made this card for a friend of mine. (She likes Stampotique too!)  The girl is called Prom Queen.  The star is from Craft-Stamper Magazine and designed by Jo Capper-Sandon.  I used copics to color the girl.  Walnut distress ink was used on the edges.  The red pearls, ribbon and button are from my stash.  I had fun making this card. Now i have to start thinking of a card for "Less is more".  That's always a fun challenge.  Hopefully i'll have something up within the next day or two.  Thanks for looking... Have a great day.

Well i said i would have something different for today.  So here it is!  It's Marci (i love her) from stampotique.  Words, bike and strip of distress writing is from Tim Holtz. The background is mustard seed distress stain and then two different stamps from cover-a-card.  The flowers are a couple of dies i used with yellow mini brads in the center.  To me Marci is like a rag doll.  Sometimes i feel like a rag doll myself.  This page is to remind me that even if i'm having a down, rag doll kind of day, i still need to remember to try to enjoy the journey.  There are good things out there too.  I just have to look for them.  Are there others of you out there who have the same feelings...  What do you do to keep your spirits up?  My visual journal has helped me alot... Easier than trying to think of what to say.  And i must say, i do enjoy going back over all the pages i have done.  Well there you go, something different and a part of me, shared.  Until next time, i hope you all have a wonderful day.
