Hello Winter with Amy Kolling

Hello!  Amy Kolling here with a little piece of winter that arrived here in Kansas last weekend!  We literally had 60 degree weather on Saturday and then a BLIZZARD on Sunday.  It was crazy! Any way, I thought it would translate well into this card using the newest stand alone dies……Frosty Flakes.  To create my background, I started with a light blue cardstock panel.  To this panel, I ink blended Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks.  Over the top of this panel, I spritzed generously Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray: Sparkle from Imagine Crafts.  If...

Merry Little Christmas with Amy Kolling

Hello!  Amy K. here with a holiday card using Christmas is Coming from the new October release.  This set is so unique with these adorable images that are so unlike any I’ve seen! To create my card, I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth carstock and white heat embossed the Falling Snow Background.  Using Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink, the ink was blended in ombre fashion upward on my panel.  Using a paper towel, the snow was buffed to wipe away any left over ink to really make the snow stand out.   While I had my Cracked Pistachio Distress...

After Copic coloring the adorable bunny wearing a witches hat, I added some white accents...

Just Bee-cause with Amy

Hello everyone!  Amy here today to start the week off with new projects using the July release!  My favorite set from this release is Bee Happy with all those adorable bee images! I created my own honeycomb pattern in the background left justified using dye inks and the hexagon stamps included in this set.  Images were all Copic colored and die cut with the coordinating Bee Happy dies. The images were added, some with foam adhesive to the stamped panel after the “trail” and sentiment were stamped.  This panel was trimmed as it was adhered to a white notecard...

Puddle Play with Amy Kolling

Hello!  Happy Monday!  Amy here with a card using some adorable critters from Puddle Play.  Seriously, all the little extra images in this set make creating a scene fun!! I started my card by ink blending Broken China Distress Oxide ink over a panel of white cardstock from darker to lighter.  Using a stitched half circle die, the shape was die cut and spritzed with water droplets.  The water puddles and droplets were done in both a gray and black ink slightly offset for a fun effect. My images were Copic colored, die cut using the coordinating Puddle Play...
