Sweet Stamping Pixies – Monochrome…

Second Monday of the month and time for a NEW Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge!

The challenge….monochrome!  So glad Jay Jay picked this.  I love it but forget to do it, so it’s a great challenge! I hope you can join us… click over to see the fabulous monochrome color choices the rest of the design team used.

I stamped on PTI card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the E40 series Copic Sketch Markers.   E40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47 and 49.

The ‘love’ word is from a pack of chipboard type sticker words by GCD Studios called Soul Food Word Stickers.

I love, love, LOVE this sentiment I used on the inside from Stampendous.  The true meaning of Christmas.

Meet Caroling Daisy… a new clear stamp from the Don and Daisy line by Marianne Design.  She is stamped on Hammermill 80# Color copy paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  The pattern paper is from the NEW Fancy Pants Christmas 6×6 pad.

I used the new Book die from Marianne Design and stamped a stamp from Embossing Arts on the book page.  I had to use a negative mask (I made it by stamping and cutting out what I wanted to stamp)  to stamp the image.

Martha Stewart holly branch punch and holly border punch. ok – the holly branch punch is hard to find, some places say discontinued… I found it at Blue Moon, link below… if you want it… grab it while you can!  The JOY sentiment is from Printworks Collection.

I wish I’d thought to stickle up the candle beams… there is always something I think of after the fact… this is already version 2! lol

CAS Merry Christmas…

Our stamp club has a card swap each month at our meeting… the second Friday of the month at 1 p.m. if you ever want to come!   Links below to the products I used.  This is the card I made to swap. Papertrey Ink Poinsettia year of the flower and die.  I used the small one out of the set, inked it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped on PTI white select card-stock and colored it with Copic Sketch markers.  The sentiment is from the same set…inked with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Happy Day… this card made the CAS Favorites over at Splitcoast Stampers today… always an honor.  SCS is a great place to play!  Click on the logo to see the thread and other favorite CAS creations.  Thank you SCS!

I love the look of the Cuttlebug Herringbone Embossing folder…have you noticed how often the folders are being used again?!  Love that… I own so many and rarely use them… always need inspiration to use the stash!

I used my Perfect Paper Layers tools to mat the sentiment strip… they work so slick… can’t make a card without them anymore!  I use an omnigrid ruler for placement on the fold, then I can use the layers tools to cut the other three sides.  Would that be a good video for me to make???

Juliene had the program this month and here’s a photo of the card she had us make…Stampin Up stamps and supplies.

and here’s a photo Juliene took… this is the window in the room we use at the Public Library here… so glad she snapped it and shared! Friday was a lovely day!

I’m almost done! hohoho
