New Year and Snowmen

Hello friends. I am so happy to be back posting here at the Aviary. I have missed all of you. I am hoping each of you have a fantastic 2017.

Today I have a card for you I made using the Snowman Love stamp set. You know snowman are just not for Christmas.

I stamped the image of the snowman 3 times across a piece of white cardstock I trimmed down. I then used my Copic marker BG10 to give it a little highlight here and there to make it look a white.

I added YR07 to their noses and W3 and W1 for the ground. I of course wanted to have the focus on the snowmen so I didn't want to add any bright pattern paper. I took a embossing folder I had a embossed snowflakes on a piece of colored cardstock to use for the background. It gave it just enough. To finish off the card front I tied a piece of blue and white twine around the bottom.

Supplies Used:
Paper Wings Productions Snowman Love stamp set
Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink
Copic Markers
Pool Party Cardstock from Stampin Up
Sizzix Embossing folder Snowflakes
Blue and White Twine
White Card Base

I hope you enjoyed my post today. I will be back with more cards next week.
Have a gorgeous day.

Letter Journal "Art" Cover

Hi all Erin here.  Here is my complete letter journal for the swap.  Here I created the front and back covers with lots of stamps, mists, paints, and texture!!

I had fun with this cover and played with the color yellow and a splatter and paint drip technique with straws.  It is fun to get messy with paints!!  Here is my video on how I created the front cover and back covers, plus how I finished off the binding.

Here are some up close pictures of the book.  For all that background texture I used the Writing Backgrounds stamps.  Love those!!!

I just love how the paints drip down from the word "ART".

Now I just need to wait for my book to make the rounds to the other 4 ladies before coming back to me!!  Stay tuned for more!!

Ink - Brutus Monroe
Mists & Paints - Tattered Angels
Background Stamps - Paper Wings Productions

Christmas Card Swap

Hi all Erin here with some fun and easy card for a Christmas card swap I am doing this year.  Check it out!

All the cards have the same items on them except for the brad, that changed color and shape as the Eyelet Outlet pack was a variety pack of 12, so I still have 2 left!!  Working with a variety of 12x12 sheets of paper and cutting them up for layers is an easy way to use up what you have instead of having to go out and buy a ton of one paper pattern.  Here is my video tutorial on how to make these fun cards.

The Holiday Script Stamp set is perfect for this card where I just wanted an easy sentiment.

Here is the card with a gold ornament brad instead of the green one.

Time to start getting your cards ready, Christmas is just around the corner!!

Supplies Used
Brads - Eyelet Outlet
Enamel Dots - Eyelet Outlet
Flowers - Eyelet Outlet
