GRS December Sketch Challenge

Here is the sketch for this month:

 I used the snowflake and swirl from the set Made of Snow. I love how elegant this snowflake and swirl are! I wanted to do a folded card with a belly band as soon as I saw this sketch. I grabbed some paper, I liked and realized it was all snowflake paper, so I decided to go with the theme. 

 Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to see the rest of the DTs creations!!

Gourmet Rubber Stamps November Appetizer Release!

Happy Heart Day

 Peace and Love Flowers
I love the colors for this card! Love em! Super simple card. I grabbed my markers, found three I liked together and went at it! I happened to have a flower sitting on my messy desk that matched, didn't even have to go searching. A little orange gliter and white gem and some turqouise cardstock to put it all on!

It has been a year!

It has been a full year with Gourmet Rubber Stamps and it has been fabulous! I love the people I work with at GRS. I've been wanting to put a post up about this, but have been in a crafting funk plus I have an ear infection. But this afternoon, this card just came together. I used a Heidi Swapp ghost flower and stamped with Staz-On with the snowflake from Made of Snow Appetizer Set. The snow swirl and snowman are also from that set. I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from Holiday Season Sampler.  I added some washi tape and a little distress ink!

Don't forget some glitter too!

Gourmet Rubber Stamps New DT Color Challenge

Gourmet Rubber Stamps has added a fun new challenge for the DT. We are going to be doing a color challenge every 25th of the month! So here is the first one....

I had bought a super cute My Mind's Eye 6x6 pack called Darling Dear that happened to be almost the exact same colors! Easy Peasy for me to throw together this super cute card using the mitten stamp from the Holiday Season Sampler kit and an old Mojo sketch I had laying on my craft desk. I inked up the mittens with Memento London Fog and added in the stripes with a Koh-i-noor colored pencil. The white swirl is a super cool raised sticker by Me & My Big Ideas.

Thanks for stopping by and you can see what the rest of the DT girls made by using the link on my side bar or heading over to the Gourmet Rubber Stamps blog! Have a great day!

Pumpkin Thankful

I inked up some stamps and made this card, but then to actually get it off my camera and on to my computer proved to be the hardest thing! Days we go! This super cute plaid pumpkin is from the October Diner's Kit Season Sampler and so is the sentiment. I kept this clean and simple. I embossed the pumpkins which you can see their shininess and used Antique Linen distress ink all over. I added the sentiment banner and put a little cross stitching on its edge. I purposely put the banner off the edge to be apart of CASual Fridays challenge 75.
