Let's Hygge - Three Room Studio

I'm back with the third stamp set from Three Room Studio's latest release and this set is called Let's Hygge.  What is Hygge you might ask?  Well, I had no clue so I looked it up and this is what Wikipedia says:  
Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.
When you look at the stamp set, it all makes sense and the set is named perfectly because every image and sentiment relates to being cozy, comfy and feeling good!  
I did hardly any colouring on this image.  The chair is paper pieced and after doing a bit of shading, it's pretty much done. 
Be sure to check out the Three Room Studio shop to have a look at the stamp sets, to the Three Room Studio blog, the design team blogs and Instagram
Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Bunting - All Dressed Up Challenge

One last Christmas card, at least I hope so! It's challenge time again at All Dressed Up so I thought it would be a perfect chance to use the Christmas Bunting digi which was among last month's release images. I knew I wanted to do non-traditional holiday colours so when I found this piece of paper in a big Christmas pad, I thought it would work perfectly.
The theme for the challenge is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image. If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or by downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.

Welcome Winter - Three Room Studio

Hi and welcome back to another preview of the Three Room Studio new release stamp sets.  This set is Welcome Winter and is themed just as the title says - it is winter themed images and sentiments.
I used the bear tubing down the slopes and trees for my card.
The sky is Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Broken China distress ink and I cut the snowbanks and added Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder.  Let me tell you, by the time I was done with the tinsel, there were sparkles everywhere!  When I had the background done, I embossed the sky with some Chunky White embossing powder and I seemed to be following a pattern because there was almost as much embossing powder around the room as there was tinsel.  Some days are just like that!
Be sure to check out the Three Room Studio shop to have a look at the stamp sets, to the Three Room Studio blog, the design team blogs and Instagram.  
Thanks for stopping by.

Skate Sleep Repeat - Three Room Studio

Exciting stuff!  Today is my first post as a member of the new Three Room Studio design team and it is also the first day you can purchase this release.  Including this set, there are three brand new stamp sets with one being winter themed with animals and the third with a steaming cup of hot chocolate (or coffee) in the big chair.  
For my card, I used Skate, Sleep, Repeat and it is a fabulous skater themed set of clear stamps which includes images of skates, banners and sentiments.  This gal looks like she's experiencing sheer joy as she's skating along.  I can't skate.  You'd think that with me being from the Canadian prairies that I should be able to but I haven't had skates on in years and I was never very good at it when I did so I really admire those who can.
I stamped the image and used a stencil and Hickory Smoke distress ink to (carefully) surround it and then added some die cut flowers.  After masking the words on the sentiment, I cut the words apart and doodled a border around each one with a Copic Multiliner pen.
Be sure to check out the Three Room Studio shop to have a look at the stamp sets, to the Three Room Studio blog, the design team blogs and Instagram.
