Wishing you a Magical & Blissful Holiday!

Hello and Happy Monday! It’s Amy here with a bit of holiday inspiration. I’m starting to gear up for the holiday’s, how about you? This year I really want to get my cards out during Thanksgiving weekend so that I don’t have to stress in December.

Today’s card combines Good Tidings to You and Warm Winter Wishes:

If you’ve been following me, you know that I’ve been really loving the pastel palette. These images were super quick for me to color.

I love how the sets are easy to mix and match. This particular design is super postal friendly even though it has several layers of cardstock.

I hope you have a fabulous week!

Eat, Drink and Be Scary!

Hello! It’s Amy here and I’m sharing a halloween themed slimline project today. I really love making fall themed cards and halloween is generally a favorite. This year I haven’t made as many as I have in the past, but I still have a couple of weeks to remedy that.

Today I’ve combined All Hallow’s Cuteness and It’s BOO-Tastic! These sets are so much fun and two of my favorites! I added a non-traditional color to my halloween designs and love how it turned out.

Every image on this particular card is on foam dimensionals. I love how it adds more interest to the overall design.

I hope you have an amazing week!

Best Times

Happy Monday! It’s Amy here with a card that features Best Friends Fur-ever. I was going to keep the design super clean and simple but ended up layering three different colors of cardstock.

I love the interest it gives the card design while still keeping it postal friendly. Those cute images have been colored with the following copics:

R000

YR000 | YR01

BG10 | BG32

E31

C0 | C1

I hope you have an amazing week!

Thank you

Happy Monday! It’s Amy here with a Thank You card. This combines the images from Life Is Beautiful along with a sentiment from Under The Sea: Narwhal.

I needed to design a thank you card and knew that I wanted to use the plants from the Life is Beautiful set. I kept the same color palette for the plants and changed it up for their containers.

The copics I used are:

YG01 | YG03

V01 | V12

E21 | E53

E42 | E43

YR24 | YR27

W00 | W0 | W1

Sadly, I don’t have much of a green thumb, these are my kind of plants!

I hope you have an amazing week!

Coffee All Day

Happy Monday! It’s Amy here with a card that I designed using some of Evelin T Designs’ digital designs. Did you know that they’ve added several different designs in their shop? My card for today combines their Coffee, Beth? and Dino-Mite Birthday.

I printed the images on my laser printer on 80 lb paper. I was going to send them through my Scan ‘n Cut but decided to just fussy cut, sometime I find that it is faster. I used various copic markers to color the images. That Beth is so cute, isn’t she?! That’s what I look like when I drink my coffee [wink!].

I couldn’t resist, I had to add that bow on her. I also added a small enamel green heart on her dress. It gives the overall design a smidge of texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an amazing week!

Coffee + Kitties

Hello Hello!  It’s Amy here with a couple cards that I’m so excited to share with you today.  First up is a card that combines the Coffee Art + Coffee Loving Critters sets:

I decided to do all my stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa.  I started off with some quick stenciling using Distress Oxide – Antique Linen.   I fussy cut the stacking mugs from Coffee Art and the bunny from Coffee Loving Critters. 

I’ve actually been enjoying fussy cutting these days.  It’s been super relaxing for me.

My copic colors I used:

R20 Y15 | Y19
BG13 | BG15
E0000 | E51

I heat embossed the sentiment from Coffee Art in white on kraft cardstock.   I mounted everything on an Aqua panel.  The middle stack of mugs, the bunny and the sentiment have all be adhered with foam squares.   I went ahead and whipped up an extra card especially for today.  I wanted to use Sneaky Kitties and send my girl [the green thumb] some happy mail:

The image has been stamped with Versafine Onyx on Bristol.  It has been colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ll know that green is my favorite color.  It was so relaxing to color this.  For this I colored zig on zig.  I blend with a lighter zig marker.  Do you see the random pops of Zig English Lavender?

I’m super happy how this turned out and think it will make my girl smile. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Evergreen Foliage and Alpha Blocks

Hello Evelin T Design Fans!  It’s Amy with my first design post.  I’m so excited to show you what I made especially for today!  I’m featuring the Evergreen Foliage and Alpha Blocks sets.

My card front consists of 5 layers.  I love to incorporate layers for added interest without the additional bulk of foam adhesive.  Today’s card also includes cork layers.

I’ve been paying more attention to the interior of my cards.  I added an additional greeting.  Don’t you just love the Alpha Blocks set?  The options are endless!

I’m pretty sure that everyone loves Happy Mail!  I kept my overall color palette the same.     What are some of your favorite color combos?  I’d love to hear from you!
