Thoroughly Modern Cheep Talk

I really liked the Mojo Monday sketch from a few weeks ago so I decided to do another card with it.  I used the set Cheep Talk and Thoroughly Modern DSP.  I seem to be more into stamping than coloring lately.  Cheep Talk is one of my favorites if I just want to stamp.  The circles on this sketch can be a little tricky!

Still Stampin those Snowflakes

I just can't seem to get enough of the the set Serene Snowflakes.  I'm finding I like it more and more every time I pull it out!  This card was a little tricky with all those matted circles.  Sometimes my circle cutter can be a real pain!!  In the end it was worth the effort.  I found this layout on the Sketch Saturday blog - Sketch 77

Snow Globe

I borrowed this set from my Mom for the winter and I'm having a lot of fun with it.  I really wish Stampin Up! would add a new snow globe set to the next catalog!  I colored this with my aquapainter and added a couple felt snowflakes to finish it off.  I used some Dazzling Diamonds on the snowlakes but it's hard to see in the photo.

My Favorite Gnome

I think this gnome might be my favorite one in the Knobbly Gnomes set!  This guy was so much fun to color.  I used reinkers and an aquapainter.  There's so much detail in the stamp itself that coloring is super easy!  I also used some new DSP.  I bought the Pawsitively Prints paper from the Holiday mini and just hadn't gotten around to using it.  There are some really great stripes and plaids in there!

Cocoa Christmas

Here's a card I put together using one of my favorite color combos - Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink and Rose Red.  I used the SU set Snow Swirled and the Movers and Shapers die to cut the Modern Label window.  Simple but pretty.

2 Sketches 4 You - Sketch 41

I had yesterday off from work so I did some searching for other sketch blogs and I found another good one.  Here's my card for 2 Sketches 4 You - Sketch 41.  I used up some more retired DSP and my new snowflake die.  Not much stamping on this one.....just the sentiment.

Friday Sketchers 81

I found another great blog with some fun sketches to try out.  For this card I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers.  I used the stamp set Bloomin Beautiful and some retired Parisian Breeze DSP from Stampin Up!  I love how these blues and browns look together!  I colored this using reinkers and an aquapainter.

Mojo Monday Sketch 116

Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge - MOJO116.  I figured this was a good sketch to use up some DSP scraps so I pulled out my favorite DSP - Razzleberry Lemonade.  I really love these bright colors.  The stamp is from The Angel Company and I colored it with my Copic makers.  Great sketch this week!

Taking a Break from Christmas Cards!

I decided I needed a break from all my Christmas stamps!  I really enjoy making Christams cards but after awhile I need a change of pace.  I decided to do something kind of summery.  This stamp is from The Greeting Farm and I colored it with Copic markers.  I think the DSP is from Basic Grey.  Sometimes it's nice to take a little break and do something different!

Mojo Monday Sketch - MOJO115

Here's a quick card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch.  I got some new snowflake dies that I wanted to try out.  I think this came out pretty good.  I wasn't too sure about my color choices but they came together ok in the end.  I also used the SU set Serene Snowflakes to stamp the background.   I really like those snowflakes.  I think this set might stay in my personal stash for quite awhile!

Smiling Snowmen

Here's another cute snowman card.  I got this image from my Mom so I'm not even sure who makes this stamp but the snowmen sure are cute!  I colored these with my Copic markers and all the paper is Stampin Up!  Sometimes it's nice to do a card that's a different size.  This one came out pretty good!
