Forest Friends - Part One

Here are two cards using the tree from the Stampin' Up! set called "Forest Friends." The other three stamps are cute little animals, and you will see them in the coming days.

I colored the stamp with markers and stamped on off-white cardstock. I inked up the sentiment with the same brown marker and added it beside the tree. The sentiment is from a Gina K set. I mounted the entire image panel on foam squares. The card base is also off-white.
This card uses the second stamping of the tree. I spritzed it with water after stamping the first image and stamped it on a small piece of off-white cardstock. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I matted the image with dark brown and mounted the image panel on foam squares, again. The patterned paper is from Die Cuts With a View.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

For You - Part Two

Here is the other card I made using the last two stamps of the Stampin' Up! set called "For You."

I stamped the image on scrap cardstock, colored the pocket/vase? with Copics, and cut it out. I stamped the image again on a larger piece and added the sentiment underneath it. I colored the image with Copics. I mounted the pocket on foam squares and added it to the second image. I matted with pink cardstock. I embossed the background with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I sponged the edges before adhering to the card base and then added the image panel.

For You - Part One

This isn't one of my favorite sets, but the cards turned out OK. You get one today and another one tomorrow.

I used two of the four stamps from the Stampin' Up! set called "For You." I colored the images with Copic markers and matted with green and mounted on foam squares. (I'm going to need to get more of them soon!) The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I added a small button on the vase/basket.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

A Flower For All Seasons - Four Cards

 Just an FYI for anyone who hasn't been here for a while. I'm on a mission to use all of my retired Stampin' Up! sets. I have them arranged by size and then alphabetically. I'm starting with the small sets, hence lots of small stamps! :)

Today's set is called "A Flower For All Seasons." I have made four similar - but different - cards. For all of them, I stamped the image with Memento ink and used Copic markers. I also cut them all with Nestabilities and mounted the frames on foam squares. I embossed all of the backgrounds and the sentiment stamps are all from Technique Tuesday. This first one uses the poinsettia stamp. The embossing folder is from Darice. 
 Next the frog and daisy stamp and the embossing folder is from Sizzix.
 The sunflower stamp and the embossing folder from Darice.
The tulip and bird stamp and the embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Festive Friends - Tags

I had a rather productive day in my stamping room yesterday while Wyatt was napping and last night while Jim was golfing, so I have posting material for a few days now. Yahoo!

The next set of Stampin' Up! stamps I'm sharing with you today is called "Festive Friends." It, like most of the others I've used so far, consists of four stamps. I decided to make Christmas tags using this set, since it has a "To/From" stamp. I simply stamped these with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers. Then I matted them. I used some Stickles on the angel wings and the snow under the snowman.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
