Hello readers and happy Friday! TGIF! I am so excited it's the weekend because for the first time in a little while I have zero on my calendar. No planned events or obligations and I look forward to just chillaxing! I'm hoping to do a lot of alcohol ink coloring while catching up on the all the newest Hallmark Christmas movies! Will you be watching them too?!
Today I am sharing a card with you that we'll be creating at my Make It Merry holiday cardmaking extravaganza on Saturday, November 17th. Not signed up yet? Send me an email or text today and RSVP! Can't make it to this class? No worries, there are plenty more scheduled events HERE.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I die cut a frame from Basic Black cardstock using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies and the Stitched Rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs. On a 5 1/4" x 4" sheet of watercolor cardstock, I use 5 markers in a rainbow pattern to ink up a Christmas tree stamp. I gently spritzed the entire stamp with a mist of water and stamped the image on the watercolor paper. I repeated this process three times. I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella when the ink dried to add sparkle to the trees. Using the Simon Says Stamp Believe dies, I cut the sentiment first out of Basic Black cardstock paper (thicker piece) and silver foil paper for the thinner text. I adhered the sentiment to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height. Lastly I added a couple randomly placed rhinestone basic jewels.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a great weekend!
Hello friends and happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed a nice weekend. It's that time of year when I'm kind of torn between not-yet-ready-to-give-up-summer-but-hello-everything-pumpkin! Seriously, last Monday I was all about Jaws, but now I'm thinking who's ready for Halloween?! Christmas? Too soon? Never. Mwahahahaha! So, prepare yourselves for a whole lotta mish-mosh of every season/holiday under the sun over the coming weeks.
Well. . . Maybe everything except Valentine's Day, that's just crazy talk.
Today, I settled on a safe and happy medium. Fall.

The base of this A2 sized card is made from Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I die cut the first matted layer out of Crumb Cake cardstock using the largest rectangle from the Nesting Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Dies by Gina Marie Designs. On a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the splatter in Cherry Cobbler ink, Pumpkin Pie ink, Crushed Curry ink and Old Olive ink. I then stamped the tree in one of each of those same colors and adhere the trees to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I cut a piece of burlap jute ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the trees. Using the leaf punch, I punched out two leaves from Gold Glimmer paper. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on a small strip of Whisper White cardstock.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!

Hello crafty people and TGIF!! Today is my last day in Maine at the Appalachian Trail Conference and I can't wait to go home! In honor of it being Friday, and my excitement to sleep in my own bed and cuddle with a trio of furbabies (oh yes and you too, Mr. Super Stamp Girl!) I'm sharing this fun rainbow of dragonflies card.
Enjoy your weekend!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. I created the first matted layer from Crumb Cake cardstock using a Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die. I ran a sheet of Whisper White cardstock through a Stitched Rectangle die. I stamped a portion of the sentiment in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and the "rainbow" words were markered in with all the colors of the rainbow before being stamped.
I ran Real Red cardstock, Pumpkin Pie cardstock, Daffodil Delight cardstock,Garden Green cardstock, Pacific Point cardstock and Perfect Plum cardstock through the Detailed Dragonfly and cut them apart with my Paper Snips. I then reattached the dragonflies together in rainbow order and adhered them to the Whisper White cardstock using fine tip glue. Lastly, I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels randomly over the card for added sparkle.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
