Simon Says... We Love Stamps

Since I needed to make a v-day card, I headed over to the Monday Challenge at the Simon Says Stamp blog. A nice and easy challenge this week, to use a favourite stamp to make a project.
I had the joy of inking up a stamp that I received recently for the first time, which is always awesome.

Simon Says... Get Krafty

Super quick mini 3x3 gift topper card for the Wednesday challenge over at Simon's blog.
The challenge was to use kraft paper, and it was a challenge for me... it was the first time I've ever tried to colour with copics on a darker card stock, interesting results.
Also, since I wanted a particular sentiment & my card stock is too thick to go through my printer, I tried hand writing it... yeeesh, not going to do that again!

I just received my new web cam in the mail, so I figured I would try figuring out how to use the thing by filming the card making process. I broke the video in to 2 seperate parts.

Cute Christmas Kitty


This card is 2 challenges in 1, The layout is from the weekly sketch challenge over at MFT and the colour combo is from Wednesdays colour challege over at SplitCoast Stampers . This weeks colour combo (#cc453) always baked cherries, was a lot of fun, though I didnt have any artichoke colour ribbon, so I went with a deeper green shade.
