This card is a spin off of the Sketch Challenge 195 (SC195) over at SCS. I used Holy Triptych for the image, Playful Christmas for the background stars, and Mona Lisa Moments for the sentiment. I colored the three wise men with Copics and then cut them out. I thought it matched well with the specialty paper, which is slightly embossed. Thanks for looking!

I just had to try a card with this sweet little bear. It’s another one of the 3-Step stamps from Kitchen Sink and it’s the same ingenious method as the other 3-Step stamps. I used Kraft card stock as my background paper and stamped a few flowers and stems, sewed the border, and distressed the edges. The bear was stamped using Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa & Chocolate Chip (SU ink). I colored the bandages in with a Copic marker, Cool Gray 1 (C1) to make them stand out a little. I had no one in mind when I made this, so if some poor soul should come along and need it, I’m ready!

I love these stamps by Kodomo! I haven’t tried their stamps before and while I’m sure the rubber stamps are good, the clear ones are poor quality. I knew I was taking a chance with these, but they were so pretty I just had to give them a try. Also, not all clear stamps are the same…there are high quality clear stamps (quality photopolymer), like PaperTrey, Kitchen Sink Stamps, Verve, and the list goes on. These, however, are cheap and don’t ink well. That being said, they do emboss okay and so that’s what I did with this card. If you click the second photo it shows the gold iridescent sparkle it has. It’s really pretty in person.
I needed a get well card for my mother who just had minor surgery. Problem is she healed so quickly that I didn’t even mail it to her! How you like those beans? I used some thick mulberry paper, the kind you use for tear bears and then paper pierced the outline of it. The background lanterns are from Far East (Lizzie Anne Designs) and the sentiment is Get Well Teddy (Kitchen Sink Stamps). I will probably give it to her anyway since I doubt I would need another Asian themed get well card! LOL!
