This card is fairly straight forward. Lots of layers, for me at least, and a bit of coloring with my Tombow markers. I stamped the gal's sled twice so she is bringing extra presents to whoever lives in that house. I added white Liquid Applique to the snow on the house and the fur on the gal's coat and of course Stickles every where else. I have added a close up photo of the house/Liquid Applique I hope you can see it (I can't).
Stamps: House - Hero Arts, Gal and sentiment - A Muse
Coloring: Tombow Markers
Paper: Watercolor, Bazzill and A Muse
Ink: Versafine Onyx and Memories Midnight Blue
Other: Liquid Applique, Diamond Stickles and scallop border Borderabilities by Spellbinder.

I believe I have used this stamp a few years ago on this blog and in fact I sold this stamp at the Crafty Capers garage sale! I was rooting around my scrap bin and found a few of the chickadees leftover from whichever year it was I sent this image out.

My neighbour and Wednesday carpooling buddy retired last week so I figured a 'happy retirement" card was in order.
I rooted through my stamps and found this one by Penny Black that I have had at least a year and I have never stamped yet! I love these guys I figured it had the right sort of feel.
I began by stamping the image on on white smooth cardstock then I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencil crayons. I matted the image as shown and added some green rhinestone flowers I've also had a while. I stamped the first line of the sentiment on a scrap of yellow cardstock and matted it as shown and stamped the rest of the sentiment inside. The full sentiment reads "the joy of retirement is having nothing to do and all day to do it" I love it! I add some interest to the card I added black and white Fun Flock to the cow and sheep. I also added Ranger's Glossy accents to the beads on the pig's necklace and the sheep's eyes. Thanks for looking!

Ink: Ranger Archival black
Coloring: Prismacolor pencil crayons
Paper: Bazzill and My Mind's Eye

I started by finding a scrap of black cardstock in my stash and I stamped the birds image with Cloud Versamagic pigment ink on the black. I LOVE the Versamagic white because it actually shows up on dark cardstock unlike many other white inks.
After the ink was dry I pulled out my watercolor pencil crayons and colored over top of the white ink because the base color is light the pencils show up perfectly on the black cardstock! Amazing! I used my Tombow white gel pen to add the eyes of the birds.
After quite a bit of playing around with the layout I found one I liked but I did not like the solid white Bazzill bling I had chosen as my top layer. I thought the card had an Asian feel so I decided to use my Tombow markers to "draw" some bamboo on the white to jazz it up a bit. It turned out perfect!
I finished off the card by using my Tombow tape runner to lay a line of adhesive down which I used to adhere some gold leafing to the card.
Thanks for looking! Just a reminder, Crafty Capers is having their 8th annual garage sale this Sunday June 6 10:30 - 1:30. Hope to see you there!

I was flipping through the Magenta catalogue a few days ago and saw a card made with this main image. Since I own it I figured I would use it.
I stamped the image with green ink on lime green A Muse cardstock then proceeded to color the image with my Prisma pencil crayons.
I matted everything as shown. I don't know if you can see it or not but I stamped a pattern on the navy cardstock to jazz it up a bit.
Thanks for looking!
