Simple Holiday Card Using Mama Elephant's "Oh Puppy Tree" Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!This week I'm sharing a simple card using Mama Elephant's "Oh Puppy Tree" stamp set! I'm absolutely in love with this set, all of the puppies are adorable and it's easy to mass produce simple cards with, perfect for the holiday season! I started by stamping out my image on white card stock, I used my Misti stamping tool and Gina K's Amalgam Jet Black ink. With larger images it's often difficult to get a clear, crisp image with stamping one time so the Misti comes in handy to keep your card in place while you stamp it again....

Everything Wonderful, Large Floral Design Used To Create, a Sympathy Card and  A Bonus Card

Well Hello Crafty Friends, I have two cards for you today, using the beautiful large floral image from Honey Bee Stamps. I am not usually fond of this kind of design, as i'm more an character artist. But I just kept looking, at this image and I wanted to challenge myself. By stepping out of my comfort zone. So here we go  Unfortunately I  had to make a sympathy card this month, when I read the sentiments to this stamp set this was perfect.

Hey lovelies!I'm taking a break from the Christmas cards this week to share a birthday card using Waffle Flower's "Pawsome" stamp set! We've all forgotten a birthday or sent a card a little afterwards, so it's always handy to have one of these cards in your stash for these occasions!

I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut a polaroid photo frame...
