Whipper Snapper and Penny Black Holiday Cards

Hi Friends, Happy Halloween. I am back with some more Holiday cards that I made for Barb's Whipper Snapper and Penny Black holiday card swap on SCS.

The first card uses Whipper Snapper Snowman on Sleigh stamp set. This image itself was so big that there was not much room to decorate. I used the ribbon as a sentiment and added some glittery snowflakes. Another thing is that I stamped this image on kraft card stock and then colored it with copics. I kind of like this look.
 This second card uses Penny Black Welcome Home stamp. I colored this image with Copics and then used a combination of American crafts Paper for this card. I could not get a good photo of this card for some reason.

Thanks for stopping by,

Bicycle Birthday Wishes

Hi Friends, October is almost ending and we are stepping into winter with the arrival of November. It has been a while since I posted to the blog- things have been a bit hectic at home front and plus I had been mainly doing some scrapbooking and catching up with my Project Life. But I am back with a few posts now.

The card I wanted to share today is a birthday card that I did for KJ's swap on SCS. I used the new Hero Arts + Sizzix  - On the Go Bike stamp and Die combination for this card. I love this new combination of Hero Arts stamp and the open thin framelit die from sizzix combination. It is so easy to stamp and cut.

I used PTI Chartreuse and White CS along with Recollections (From Michaels) Patterned Paper from this card. Some Gingham ribbon from Offray and some PTI Vintage buttons complete the card.
