Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 5 + Mama Elephant Stampede

Happy Wednesday, all!

Today’s Holiday Card Series video and card also double as part of a Mama Elephant Stampede (aka blog hop). Mama Elephant has some awesome new stamps and dies for you all!

I played with the new Artic Penguins and Season’s Greetings stamp sets (also available at Simon HERE)…

The penguin scene was masked and stamped, and then colored with Copic Markers. I’m totally loving creating night skies with Distress Inks recently. Remember last Friday’s card? :)

Anyhow, here’s today’s video. (Be sure to check out the Stampede info below the supplies).

JetPens Haul – Fudebiyori Metallic Brush Markers, Correction Tape, & Label Stickers

You all know I love pens, paper, and office supplies in general, right? I’ve had a love affair with pens since I was a little girl. So finding JetPens a few years ago was awesome! I order from JetPens nearly once a month. :)

The awesome people at JetPens contacted me after my last haul video and wanted to see what other products I would pick out. They gifted me with a couple gift cards for a shopping spree. Sweet! Here are the finds that I picked up at JetPens recently.

NOTE: I’ve had the Fudebiyori brush pen set for a while, but it was out of stock (no wonder! They’re amazing). So I waited until they were back in stock. But you can always buy them individually, too. I’ve listed my three favorite colors individually below. :)

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 4

Happy Monday, all! Today is Day 4 of the Holiday Card Series 2014. :)

For today’s card, I wanted to use a stamp set that I originally bought to use for last year’s Holiday Card Series, but never had a chance to use. It’s the All Yule Need stamp set from Paper Smooches. The stamp set has a bunch of outline images that would be perfect for coloring. Instead of coloring all the images, I embossed them with white embossing powder and then traced them with a VersaMarker to add a bit of shading. Super simple and easy–just how I like it.

The pretty blue cardstock is Audrey Blue cardstock from Simon, and I used the matching Audrey Blue ink for the greeting.
