I am really enjoying the new Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft colors,Subtle Tones, so I decided to create a very light and neutral card, something a little "out of the box" for me. 
I have a photo tutorial on the creation of this card on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog HERE.

Loving Fall!

I've been sharing a few fall cards lately as I can't express enough how much I've been LOVING being back in South Dakota to enjoy this time of year.  Today, my hubby and I went for a drive through Spearfish Canyon in the Black Hills.  It was the perfect morning-- chilly, bright, and fresh!  Here are a few of my photos... I hope you enjoy! :)

Trick or Treat

Hi, my friends! Quick share today as I've been sick with the stomach flu the last few days and finally now seem to be catching up with life! :)
The fashion girl was colored with Copic markers and the backgrounds were inked with Distress Ink. All stamps by Penny Black and die by Spellbinders. 
Have a great day!

New Penny Black Release...

Just popping in to share that Penny Black is sharing peeks at their upcoming release, Winter Wonder, on the PB blog this week.  I can't wait until I can share a few cards I've made with these beautiful stamps!  Check it out the peeks HERE

And before I go, here's a card I created using Penny Black's 4267K Sparkling Christmas:

This card features the emboss resist technique with nontraditional Christmas colors (Distress Ink: Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick, and Seedless Preserves).  I also used Penny Black background clings 40-164 Christmas Story and 40-170 Harmony.  The sentiment is from the clear Penny Black set 30-134 Winter Magic.

Thanks for visiting!

Christmas Tags

Penny Black is hosting a fun weekend challenge- holiday tags. Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing...
This next set was sooo fun to make. I stamped several images onto small tags and colored them with Copics. Then I added Distress Ink after they were colored. I find I reach for my markers more if I have items prestamped and ready to go. (Especially during NFL football season- I love to color while also keeping my hubby company while he watches the games!)
Click HERE to visit the Penny Black blog for more tag inspiration and details on the challenge.
Have a great weekend!

And here's a peek at those new colors- perfect for layering brighter colors on top of and also nice for subtle color, like adding shading around stamped images for depth.

PB&J Video Tutorial

PB&J is back! I have been so inspired by the amazing work and videos of Christy Tomlinson that I decided try something new. (You can see Christy's particular video and project that inspired mine by clicking HERE.) Today I have a video tutorial on creating this 8 x 10 Christmas canvas using Penny Black Madison Designer Paper.  For a full list of the stamps used on this project, visit the Penny Black blog HERE.
And here are the videos.  This project took a little longer than normal, so there are two videos.  I hope you are inspired to try something new. :)
