Christmas Gumdrops

Hello there! Lexa here today with a holiday card highlighting the cutest stamp set of all, Jolly Gingerbread stamp and the coordinating dies. I love this one to bits. I can't believe that Christmas is almost here so better get started to make some holiday cards for your special ones.

Pink and green lately become my most favorite color combination, I used them on so many cards without I realized it. So maybe this color combination can be your inspiration beside the classic red and green for this holiday. I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I use the coordinating dies to perfectly cut them all. I also add some detail for the ginger bread friends, the scraf, pearl necklace and also cute hair. I think they are absolutely adorable. The smaller tree biscuit is come from last year holiday stamp set called Christmas Icons, which surprisingly match well with this stamp set, and help me to build the scene even more cuter. I stamped some small images on the pink background with pink dye ink to fill in the blank space and a little bit more balanced the whole card.
I mixed some of the sentiments on the set to create my own sentiment, which I'm not really sure what that's mean...LOL but I hope it makes sense. This super sweet scene will make anyone's day even brighter on Christmas day.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a blissful day!

Playful Polar Bears

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with two cards using a winter theme stamp set, Playful Polar Bears. This stamp set is super sweet for both holiday and everyday cards. As for today, I'm going to show you some inspirations for non holiday ones.

For the first card, we have the lovey dovey couple sitting there in the snow. Don't they look adorable together? The Playful Polar Bears coordinating dies also cut the bears' hands so they could hold something from the set. Brilliant! And my polar bear here is holding a cup of hot cocoa, perfect on snowy days. It's just me and my pink sky (again), for the background I white embossed the falling snow from Frosty Flurries then blend Abandoned Coral and Sugar Spun Distress Inks. Looove it. I also add snowy mountains on the background to complete the scene. I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers.

 The pun stentiment is really my thing, that's another reason why I love this stamp set so much. I white embossed the sentiment on a stripe of pink card stock and create a fish tail on one edge, I adhere it with foam tapes to add dimensions.

My second card's size is smaller than usual. Honestly this is my leftover images after I did some coloring.. so why should I waste them up? These polar bears are just too cute to be abandoned. Hehe. I create a birthday card with monochrome color combo, which is my favorite color, blue. I stamped various sizes of snowflakes from the set on a piece of blue paper of the background. The polar bear is skating in the snow ready to deliver a present for someone special (read: you) After I finished with my little scene, I adhere it on a piece of patterned paper to complete the look.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you like today's cards. I hope everyone have an amazing Friday!

PPP Christmas Angels

Hi everyone! Today I'm going to share a holiday card inspiration starring the brand new Angel Friends Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh. They are super adorable, I can not. I'm also showcasing the limited release PPP collaboration with Simon Says Stamps, Damask Greetings. This is a show keeper...super pretty!

I stamped all my images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring I die cut them all with the coordinating dies. Each of them have different pastel color dress... untraditional Christmas colors can be an alternative choice. I create the background start with silver embossed the pattern from Damask Greetings then randomly blend some Distress Inks in Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass to match the little angels' dresses and finish it by water splatters. The little scene is framed with baby blue Scallop Frame Dies that exclusively sold on PPP's shop. And the Gold Stars Sequins is one of the must have item for your holday cards. Don't forget to put it on your wish list!

Sending Joy For You

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a Christmas card featuring the brand new Petite Poisenttias Stamps mixed with the old Holiday Style Stamps

I start this card with the background, I gold embossed the tree branch and resist blend some Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feather) then splash some water for the cool watercolor effect. I just love it. I stamped the poisenttias with two tone red dye ink and brown for the last layer. I got some help from my stamping tool for building layerd stamps. They look so pretty. You can create a lot of this style for holiday seasons, they are so easy to work out with. I also add some flat gold stars from Pretty Pink Posh for accent.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you like today's card and have an amazing day.

It might be the season, the color scheme, or maybe the festive Halloween Day that you'd love. This super spooktacular set from Pretty Pink Posh will make your Halloween day even more fun.

I create my background with a loose watercolor technique using Distress Inks along with Tic Tac Toe Dies as if they are belong together. I did a little bit custom edges on every line by snipped  them sharp just using scissors. I stamped all the images using Versafine Black and watercolor them with Distress Markers. The dress up kids look so cute, don't you think so? I paired up the brand new Trick or Treat Friends Stamp with the older Halloween Friends Stamp. They make a perfect scene together.

Gleeful Christmas

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a holiday card inspiration by mixing several Sunny Studio stamps in one card. These cute farm animals were visitting their friend, the reindeer, so they must be geared up to face the snow!

I start my card with choosing the right stamp set for my basic idea, the Barnyard Buddies are so ready for Christmas..they are all dressed well with the accessories from Jolly Gingerbread and Playful Polar Bears stamp set. Well, they have to keep themselves warm right? I stamped all my images with versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with all the coloring, I die cut every pieces with the coordinating dies.
I blend Peacock Feather and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks for the snowy sky and stamped some of the snowflakes with turquoise dye ink from Gleeful Reindeer. I also add some white dots using Nuvo Drops for some dimension and it looks so cool! After I finished my scene, I layer it on top of purple polkadot patterned paper.. here's a closer look of my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy today's card. Have a wonderful day!
