Peace Love Joy

Peace, Love, Joy  is a stamp set from Hero Arts "Greetings for the Holiday".  The sentiment was stamped on a white that the ends were hand cut and then distressed with Antique Linen.  It is such a nice set and works perfect with the stamped image from Prickley Pear.  The flower was colored with Copic R46 and R59 while the leaves were YG 93, and YG95.  The image was cut with a Spellbinder oval and distressed with Antique Linen.  The base card is Royal Fiber Birch and was dry embossed with a Sizzix snowflake folder.  Both the stamped image and sentiment were popped while the corners were rounded to finish off the card.  Very simple.  Hope you enjoy

tis the Season

A cute little snowman by Hero Arts along with its open Sizzix die  "Snowman pair".  The greeting is also from Hero Arts "Greetings for the Holiday.  The snowman was stamped with Memento Black and colored with Copic markers (YR04, B0000, R46, R20).  The folder is a Sizzix "Dots" that was embossed on paper longer than the folder so it could be trimmed to leave a spot to stamp the greeting.  The snowman is popped, the white mounted on a red  and a simple 4.25 x 5.5 card is made.  Hope you enjoy.
