holiday inspiration with Crafter's Companion

i have been a MAD card making woman this weekend.  between last night and today, i managed to whip up a SLEW of new cards for the two craft fairs i have coming up next weekend.  these two are among the 15 or 20 cards i made!

this first one uses the new Falling Snowflake E-Z mount stamp set from Stamp-It Australia's Twinkle line, and it's so simple but SO wonderfully customizable.  I. LOVE. THAT.

i opted for a bright and modern look, picking up on the glitter from the papers in the buttons and using silver ink.  i stamped my image on Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, and used my Spectrum Noir markers PL2 and HB3, with GB2 and GB7, and StazOn Metallic Silver ink on the sentiment. 


simple, right?  and just a smidge of colour.

next up!  i decided i needed some elegance without being overly specific.
these birds are also from the Stamp-It Australia Twinkle - Falling Snowflake set:

stamped on the Ultra Smooth Premium White using Memento Espresso Truffle ink, i went over the whole image with my Spectrum Noir BG1 to age it up a bit, then accented the blue with BGR3 - love the dull watercoloury look it added.  fussy-cut and popped it up and added my accents.
