Mystery Swap Round 37

I am a little behind the game on this image.  I did get all my cards sent to Melina but forgot to post it on my blog.  Melina chose this image called "Yuletide Greetings" from Close To My Heart.  I found an image that I thought would go perfect with it.  Unfortunately the stamp set was in a clear envelope and I have no idea who is it by.

I colored the image with my copic markers and then tried to find a design that would work. The circle dash day is one of the new ones from Stampin Up.  I think I will be using those often. 
Thanks Melina for a great challenge.

Two Paper Divas

I hope you are all taking advantage of the 40% off sale at Two Paper Divas.  They still have alot of my favorite stamps left.  Be sure and check them out.  Today I decided to share a Christmas card I made by going out of my comfort zone.  It goes to show you can take any stamp and make it a Christmas card. 
For this card I used the Sweet Notions stamp set and used 4 snowflakes instead of buttons.  I then took the sentiment from Warm Winter Wishes.  I really like the way this card turned out and I plan on making several more because I love the look.  I might even try green ink in place of the black ink. 

So check out the sale items.  Get your stamps now while they are still in stock.

Freshly Made Sketches

I can't believe I am doing 2 posts in one day but I have had some creative time and playing with some of my favorite stamp sets from Two Paper Divas.  I went to Freshly Made Sketches for my card today for inspiration.
This is the sketch I decided to use for my card.
I decided to turn the sketch around and use "Warm Winter Wishes" stamp set for my card.  I love this stamp set because their are so many different elements to the stamp set.  An extra bonus is that everything in the store is 30% off.  We all love sales so take a look around Two Paper Divas store and grab those stamps that are calling out to you.

Thanks to Freshly Made Sketches for a fun sketch to use.

CAS(E) this Sketch!

I wanted to show a few more stamps sets that are available at Two Paper Divas.  They are having a fantastic sale with 30% off all their stamps in stock.  You should take advantage of the sale.  We all love sales.  I went to CASE(E) this Sketch! for some inspiration in my design.  This week their sketch challenge is #197. 

I thought this would be a fun sketch for my card.

For this card I used Bloom Wildly.  It has this cute flower pot and flowers on the set.  Another fun set they have works perfectly with the flower pot is the Bloom Wildly Sentiments.  There are several sentiments on their perfect for different occasions.

Thanks again to CAS(E) this sketch! for some inspiration.

Two Paper Divas

Do you have a friend or loved one who likes to sew?  I made this card for a good friend of mine who loves to sew. 

I used this stamp set from Two Paper Divas called "Sew Much Fun".   It has so much cute little sewing stamps on it.  I just love it.  I first laid out all my stamps with my misti to get it just like I want and then I used versamark.  A little tip that I have recently seen is you can stamp double when you are using your misti and versamark.  It gives you a very nice embossing when you are done.  I used white embossing powder and then colored in my stamped images with copic markers.  I love how this made a clean and simple card.

Now is your time to go over to the Two Paper Divas store and get that stamp set that you are wanting to purchase.  Everything in the store will be discounted once you check out. I know they have limited sets in stock but you can purchase this sewing stamp set if you act quickly.
