Cafe -- an All Dressed Up Stamps New Release

 Hey, hey, crafty friends! It's new release day at All Dressed Up Stamps!  There are 3 new releases.  I was fortunate enough to be able to play with Cafe. It's the perfect image for Fall & Winter (or dog lovers). 

Here's what I created with Cafe

I colored Cafe with Copic markers.  I realized I had sized her to perfectly fit on a mini slimline card, so that's what I created.  There's a bit of ink blending on the card base, then a piece of snowflake paper from AMB Illustrations.  I used a couple stitched mini slimline dies from Queen & Company.  The sentiment is a stamp from Hero Arts.  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added some drip drops from Taylored Expressions to finish off the card.

Check out the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook group, and the All Dressed Up Stamps Challenge blog for more great New Release inspiration!

Christmas Deer -- for All Dressed Up Stamps

 Hello friends, and welcome to November!   My blog has been very quiet for several months.  I fractured my knee in July, and for 3 months I couldn't negotiate the stairs to make it to my craft room.  But, I can walk again, and it is wonderful!  

Nov. 1, and it's time for a new challenge in the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook group. The theme this month is Season's Greetings.  You have the entire month of November to get a project made and placed in the folder in the ADU Facebook Group. Wendy -- artist and owner of ADU -- has many wonderful Christmas images in the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy Shop.  Treat yourself to an image, create something with it, and join us! 

I absolutely love the Christmas Deer digital image, so I chose to create with it. I think it's those soulful eyes!  Here is the card I made:

I colored Christmas Deer with Copic markers.  The background paper is from Crafter's Companion.  The sentiment is from Gina K Designs, and the foliage die cuts are from Spellbinders.  I finished the card with some sticky backed pearls from Close To My Heart. 

'Tis the season to finish our Christmas cards!  Get something created and join us in the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook challenge! I'd love to see what you create!
