Life is Good!

Hello! I'm so excited , my daughter Theresa Momber has ask the very talented fabulous Jenny Charboneau ( Miss Boo) and I to be her guest designer for the month, showcasing her wonderful new set "Life is Good" from Gina K. Designs
Theresa is featuring me on her blog tonight and Miss Boo has created something wonderful for you to see. Be sure to check it out!

One of the things I like best about this new set is that it's versatility with all the details in the stamp it self, so very little coloring is needed to make your card look like a work of art! It also is fantastic without any coloring.
Here is my first project, a Christmas card box. Gina has a challenge over at Stamp TV to make a seasonal box.
I used copic's to color the image and nestabilities. I sponged around it using SU Creamy Carmel. Card stock is All Spruced Up by Gina k. and DP is from Me and my big ideas. The ribbon from my stash. The box holds about twelve 41/4 by 51/2 size cards.

Here, I made some masculine bookmarks. Using the elk from "Life is Good"

This is how the inside looks and the back.

I designed the bookmarks after a bookmark I've had around for a long time and I really like but it was a little small. I made this 2 3/4 x 4 1/2, rounded the corners , stamped the Elk in memento black. I added magnets and covered it with some DP I have had around. The card stock is from Gina K. " Tan Leather".

Theresa has my other card featured on her blog. I'm heading over to Miss Boo's blog to see what she has created for us, won't you join me.

Thanks for stopping by.
