My SCS Tutorial!!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!

With all the exciting new releases I have been lucky enough to share with you recently, I haven't had a chance to show you all my tutorial for Splitcoaststampers!!!!! You can check out the full tutorial with step by step instructions and a video by Beate (yes...THE Beate!!!) right here!

Earlier this year, I went to a SU! meeting and got to meet Christina Crawford. At the meeting, she showed us all a card purse that she created, and that was the basis for my tutorial!!

For my Card Purse and cards, I used the FABULOUS (and back in stock!) Penguin Love set from There She Goes!!! This set is ADORABLE and I love to use it!!!

The colors for my set all came from this DELISH paper, Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey! For the focal panel on my Card Purse, I started by stamping the penguin, and I then masked him to stamp the igloo. I colored the entire image with Copic Markers and I added Dazzling Diamonds to the ground and the snow on the igloo using a glue pen. I made a sentiment tag with the sentiment, "Happy Holidays", which is also from Penguin Love. I kept the set of cards SUPER simple (which is a style I have been really enjoying lately!). I used the same patterned paper and the same Penguin Love stamp set and stamped the sentiment, "You Warm My Heart", also from Penguin Love, directly onto my Choice Snow White card base.

I hope you take a look at my tutorial and try it for yourself! It's SUPER easy and makes a great hostess or holiday gift!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
