Mama Elephant-Meowy Woofmas

Hello again! I’m back with Mama Elephant highlighting the adorable Meowy Woofmas stamp set.Mama Elephant-Meowy WoofmasI can’t even handle the cuteness here! First of all, the coordinating dies make the door open. How fun is that? The cute little critters are so sweet. I colored all the images with Copics. The background was blended with Wild Honey & splattered with water. I added a few “ornaments” to the trees with Ranger enamel accents in Cherry, Lemon Twist & Lily Pad.

Believe in the Season release

believe-in-the-season-638x300-600x282Hi there! Just popping in to share a quick little project created using one of the gorgeous new sets from the new Believe in the Season release by Simon Says Stamp. My card features the Magical Christmas stamp set & coordinating dies.
SSS-Magical ChristmasThis is a great set with classic, timeless images. I used one of the Stitched Oval dies to frame my deer head image. I added some sprigs around the oval opening, coloring the berries with Copics and added glossy accents for some shine.
