Here’s a fun way to personalize your morning cup of coffee. Alex sent this in and I just love it. There are lots of coffee tumblers out there and I know there are a few that can be personalized. The one that Alex made lets you unscrew part of the mug, create a picture, slip it in and screw everything back together.

She’s used just one stamp – actually a holiday stamp, but stamped it all around the insert and colored it in springy colors. Isn’t it just grand! For added strength she’s laminated the entire piece. So many possibilities!

Lynne Jardine - Barking on the front porch

Here’s an adorable card from Lynne. Usually when the Porch with light stamp gets used, the edges are off the card. But here she’s “floated” it which I think looks great. Lynne said she stamped the images and colored them in with her watercolor pencils. She then popped Webster and the bottom step/plant up on dimensional to add a little interest. The sky she chalked in background (a hint of clouds) and then added clear gloss to the light. I just love all the little embellishments – her sketchy lines, the little arrow that seems to hold it all in place and then bit of bling. Oh so cute.

Lynne Jardine - Have a purrfect day

A purrfectly wonderful card from Lynne. I love the softness of this card – the sweet orange kitty and the patterned paper. She added some fun stars and finished things off with a bit of sparkle.

Here’s hoping you all have a purrrrfect day. :)

Lynne Jardine - Thanks - Mailbox bears

Here’s a sweet little Thanks card from Lynne. I just love the spot of red in the mailbox and that she added a few enamel dots. She said she colored everything in with watercolor pencils and added a bit of clear gloss to the little mailbox flag. The background was created with chalks – I just love the little hint of clouds and grass.

She did say that she tried to add a shadow to the “Thanks” but says, “I stamped it off a bit too much so it just looks like a smudge here. LOL.” I think it looks just fine. :)

I wanted to create a soft winter scene, so I stamped the Winter trees in a light color and then used my watercolors to create the background. I stamped the penguins and Milo on a separate piece, watercolored them in and cut them out. I used a little foam tape to create some dimension. I then thought the little penguin should be holding a flag so I cut one out, wrote the words, glued it on a toothpick and then cut it to fit. The penguins arm fit around it just perfectly. Of course I had to use some glitter to finish things off.

Happy Christmas!
Holly

Here’s another Christmas card from Lynne. I love the color combination!! Always fabulous Lynne!

She says:
Here’s a quickie using my favourite Eat Cake Graphics elf! My unusual colour theme was decided by this pretty DP – not colours I would traditionally put together for a Christmas card, but I like how it turned out! I coloured my elf with watercolour pencils and popped him up on dimensionals. There’s LOADS of sparkle on this … I covered his hat and gloves with my clear glitter pen; clear gloss and glitter to the ‘furry’ bits on his hat; and then more glitter dropped into my enamel dots. Corner die is an oldie from Memory Box and sentiment die from Simon Says.

Lynne Jardine Penguin Fun

Here’s a sweet Christmas card from Lynne. She said she couldn’t decide which of the penguins she wanted to use, so she used them all! Adorable!!!

Here’s what else Lynne wrote:
The two in the corner look like they’ve got cold feet, the dude in the middle is having a blast sliding down the hill, and the guy to the right definitely looks like the Health and Safety Officer LOL
Coloured with watercolour pencils, and clear gloss added to their beaks and feet.  I finished my card with a Simon Says Stamp Christmas die, Paper Smooches snowflake die, a little silver star and some clear bling.

Here’s a wonderful Christmas card from Lynne. I just love the cheery colors and of course all of her shading. Thank you Lynne for choosing this as your family Christmas card!

Here’s what she wrote:
I loved these little carol singers so much I decided to use it as my card to my family and friends, so there’s been a bit of a production line on my table!  I’ve coloured my little family with watercolour pencils and added glitter to their baubles, trim of Dad’s Santa hat, and Mum’s ear muffs.  Clear gloss added to the lantern glass, and I covered the boy’s hat, Dad’s scarf and the little girl’s skirt in my clear sparkle pen.  I also added some Frosted Lace stickles to the ground for my fallen snow, so there’s LOTS of sparkle on this card!

Here’s a wintery card sent to me by Lori. It was actually something she made earlier, I just didn’t get a chance to post it. I’m loving the white embossed lines instead of the usual dark stamped lines – really adds a lovely wintery touch.

Lori said that she stamped and embossed on watercolor cardstock and colored with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Just look at all that shimmer!!home-for-christmas-closeup-lori-barnettx

A fabulous card from Lori I’m sure you’ll love as much as I do.

Here’s what Lori said:
Now that Fall is officially here, I’ve got the itch to do all things Halloween. I used some of my favorite spooky stamps to create this fun Happy Halloweenie card. Hazel the witch is getting her boogie on, but I wonder what she is out collecting in that pumpkin? Hopefully some yummy candy! LOL All the images are colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The grass is stamped by coloring Spectrum Aqua Watercolor markers colored directly on the stamp. Then I did a quick watercolor wash to blend it out. Hazels dress has tiny dots all over it, which I added with a black micron pen. To give her glasses some dimension, I colored over with a Versamark marker and heat embossed clear. I cut out a few of tombstones and popped up for a bit for dimension. Then I stamped the full Graveyard image a few times on the card base for a tone-on-tone look. The sentiment is heat embossed.hazel-witch-happy-halloweenie-closeup-lori-barnet-watermarked
