Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

A snowy Sent with Love

Hello!  Today I am excited to give you a sneak peek of Ian Hallows' new "Christmas in Mulberry Wood" stamp line from Crafter's Companion. I chose this image of a little critter in an envelope to use - isn't he just adorable?

I stamped the image onto white card stock, and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. I cut out the upper outline, because I wanted to layer him on a Swiss dot embossed background, reminiscent of snow.  Before I did that, I added lots of Tulip Snow and ultra-fine glitter.

Then he was layered on to the white background with pop dots, and then onto a rose layer, to pull out the soft colors of the poinsettias.  This then was adhered to a folded white card base.

The greeting was oval-punched and layered onto a red scallop punch, to bring out the brighter red in his hat, and adhered with pop dots.

Hope you enjoyed this frosty scene in what has really been a sweltering summer.


  1. This is so pretty. The image is adorable.

  2. Marge! This turned out great - so cute! Love the glitter! Isn't it fun making winter cards after all this heat in the Midwest?! :o)

    Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
