Hi Crafters! Julia A. here today with a super easy and fun card showing you that you don't always need expensive markers and stellar blending skills to achieve a great colouring effect.

Check out the video below or on The Alley Way Stamps' Youtube channel to see how I created this card in about 10 minutes, using Waddle Pals and Blast Off. Cheers!

Hi Friends!  Meredith here with a creation I made using a recently released set called Big Time.  I stamped my sentiment in Pale Tomato ink from Hero Arts onto the center of the postage stamp die from MFT.  I then added the You and if you look closely you'll see the background is full of the XO stamp.  I used a very light blue dye ink for the background to give it visual interest but not to distract from the main sentiment.  I added lots of fun papers from Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper 'Style Board' pack that I recently purchased.  I added some fun sticker embellishments and some glitter hearts cut using an Impression Obsession die.

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with a little cutie of a card featuring the new Waddle Pals set and one of my all-time favorites, Winter's Butterflies. :)

Hello Sweet Thing

Hi! Lisa here to share a layout I've created using new and old stamp sets including: Sweet Thing, Line Upon Line, and Cake Day.  I loved the mixing and matching of fonts and sizes for my title, and I used Line Upon Line as matting for my photo.  The heart banner from Cake Day was the perfect embellishment, hope you like it!

Hi Archana here!! Today I would like to show you this Christmas card using Mistletoe kisses stamp set. I started stamping the holly berry image from this set. I heat embossed and colored it using distress inks. Then I created the wreath using twine and pasted these stamped images on it. Added ribbon, rhinestones and some mist in the background. Sentiments are also from the same stamp set.

Hi there! It's Yuki here with a cute holiday card featuring the new "Waddle Pals" set and the new mini-set, "Chilly". If you're anything like me, you love using dimension on your card. However, I usually have to include extra postage and sometimes I even have to use bubble mailers as well. So for today's card, I decided to make a cute mail-friendly card.

With a little bit of pre-planning and masking, it's easy to create the illusion of dimension. I started off by stamping the penguins and masking them off with masking paper. Once the penguins were masked off, I stamped the large iceberg and masked it as well. When you're masking a scene, the key is working front to back. Meaning any images you want in the foreground will need to be stamped and masked off first. Once all of my stamped images were masked off, I took a piece of painters tape and masked off the horizon. I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire for the sky and applied a light layer of Tumbled glass for the bottom half. I then colored all of my stamped images wth Copic Markers. I initially stamped the sentiment directly onto my panel in black ink but felt there wasn't enough contrast, so I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock and glued it right over the original sentiment and no one would ever know! I glued my panel directly onto a black cardbase. And to finish my card, I added some white dots to the sky using my white gel pen and some clear Wink of Stella to the iceberg.

I just love how this card turned out and am obsessed with these adorable little penguins. They're so fun to color and I know I'll be incorporating them in a lot of my holiday cards this year. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to swing by my blog for a full list of supplies!

Hi everyone it's Holly here with a fun take on a Christmas card.. I used some Mirror stamping to create a Mirror Image of the coffee cup. I used the cups from the Breakfast Club set and the newest set Mistletoe Kisses.

Hello!! Dana here, my card features the new Mistletoe Kisses stamp set! I created a little banner with a few of the images and used a stencil for the background!

Hello, Emily here.  My card for today was made with Mistletoe Kisses stamp set.  I stamped, colored the trees with Copic markers and adhered on my snowy background using foam tape.

A Happy Monday Hello!!

Happy Monday!!  Meredith here with a water colored creation using Peguins on Parade and Words to Live By.  I watercolored the adorable music listening penguin with my Kurtake paints.  I then stamped my sentiment using Hero Arts black ink and I used Hero Arts cornflower ink for the stamped image below.  I used a plethora of scrap papers that I had in my stash, a chalkboard sticker, some music washi tape, a wood veneer banner flag, some faceted self-adhesive embellishments and some beautiful grosgrain ribbon to finish everything off with a nice tidy bow!  I slightly distressed the edges of my layers to give it a very subtle vintage feel.

Hi there!  Lisa here with you today and I'm sharing an icy little card that I've made using two new sets called: Mistletoe Kisses and this month's freebie with $40 purchase Chilly.  To create this card I started by stamping my little snowman first, masked him and stamped the ice next, so it would look just like he was sitting in the middle of it.  I then used my Copics and fussy cut lots and lots.  Now the background dots are from an older set called: Wreathed in Love.

Hi it's N@ Ali. Today I used Mistletoe Kisses for this quick card. I also used the cut out part to make a second card.

Hi everyone! Marina here! Today I would like to show you this fun and colourful card. I started out by stamping the socks from the Mistletoe Kisses. I decided to create a rainbow scene as always. Alternating the type of socks gives it a bit of a "random" look. I coloured the stamps with copic markers. Nothing fancy with the colouring except that I always choose one light and one darker ink. This is because it adds a bit of dimension to the image. 

I wanted to add some character to socks. I used my white gel pen to add some details to the socks. You can do this to any image you have. For example, details on cakes or clothing stamp. 

As usual, I finished the card with some gold stickles because I feel like it gives a nice shimmer look to the card.
