{SMITTEN...}

...with mittens! :)


How cute is this little snowman?  He's one of the many stamps in the Paper Smooches {FREEZY FELLAS} set, which also comes with the mittens and heart stamps.  I stamped the mittens and heart with clear VersaMark ink onto turquoise cardstock to get the watermark effect.  I heat embossed the snowman image with white embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches {GOOD GAB} stamp set.

I followed this week's Designer Draft sketch from the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog:

{ENJOY}

Hello!  I've got another quick card share today, this time featuring {Wild Sprouts - CHELSEA}, an older, retired stamp from The Greeting Farm.  I made it for the current TGF {FARM FRESH FRIDAY} challenge "Tag, You're It!"


I'm still getting the hang of the no-line coloring technique, but I think she turned out pretty cute. :)  I stamped her onto watercolor paper with a light peach ink and colored her with Distress Ink markers, water, and a paintbrush.

The rest of the card supplies can be found at the end of this post.
She's totally rockin' it!

{I'LL HOLD YOU IN MY HEART}

I'm having so much fun water coloring with my Distress Ink markers and this MFT "Precious Little Lamb - Fill My Heart With Joy" stamp was crying out for me to color her up:


*squeee*

She's adorable!  And she could easily be turned into a he, just by changing the outfit details.  I love versatile stamps like this.  I stamped her onto watercolor paper and colored her with Distress Ink markers, a paintbrush, and water.  I added a few highlights with a white ink gel pen to finish her off.


This fantastic sketch is from the current MFT Sketch Challenge. I'll be using if often, I'm sure. I really love how it turned out!

P.S. Since I'm back to a regular cardmaking schedule, I finally renewed my InLinkz subscription so I'll be able to list all of my card supplies again. Yay!

{WARM THOUGHTS}

I've got a quick clean + simple card to share with you today:


I used one of the cute snowmen from Paper Smooches' {FREEZY FELLAS} stamp set for this tag.  I stamped him onto watercolor paper and heat embossed him with white embossing ink.  I then used my Distress Ink markers, water, and a paintbrush to lightly color him in.

That stamp set has a bunch of small extras as well, which is where I got the teeny, tiny Christmas light bulb... so cute!  I stamped it multiple times to look like a long string of lights and water colored them to look as if they were glowing. :)   The sentiment is from the {FIRST AID KIT} set, also by Paper Smooches.  It's been heat embossed as well.


I'm adding this card to the following challenges:

{PAPERTAKE WEEKLY} - Favorite/Anything Goes
{SIMON SAYS STAMP} - Anything Goes
{PAPER SMOOCHES SPARKS} - Anything Goes

Hope everyone has a great week!  Thanks for visiting.
