I made these for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club June Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.
This was a lot of fun to make. It took a little engineering w/ the light string image but I think it accurately represents what has surely happened to us all at one time or another. And if I could have gotten away w/ it, I would have totally left them like this & called it a day. This tangled mess of lights is one reason my tree is now one of those that comes w/ lights already on it, lol. I used a stamp a ma jig to position the light string into the chaotic mess it is then colored it & added the plug on the side. I stamped just a few pine branches & 1 ornament to give the impression of the unlit tree off to the side. The greeting was made up of little die cut letters. A while back, I saw one of those hand drawn joke cards w/ this idea & thought I could create something similar. 

Here are the Copics I used.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS DesignsChristmas Light String, Pine Bough, Ornaments Galore
Paper: Staples 110# white, pine green
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, Lil’ Inker Stitched Rectangles dies, Sizzix celebration words dies, Copic mulitliner pen


And just because I bought this set on clearance over a year ago & have never used it…I made a second card. Very easy since the stamps & matching dies pretty much do all the work. Stamped the whole image on the sand card stock, then again several more times on white, colored them, die cut them & popped the layers up on the original. 

Supplies:

Stamps: Sizzix Tree Blueprint (stamp/die combo)
Paper: Staples 110# white, sand
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, MFT diagonal stitched rectangle dies

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Blue Dragonfly DTGD09  3011 final

The Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni have been working really hard to put together 3 days of fantastic challenges. My friend and “roomie” on the Dirty Dozen, Jami (sgtstamper) asked me to make a sample for her challenge on Saturday, July 25.

These are a couple of views of my card, Blue Dragonfly. You’ll need to visit the DTGD09 challenge for details on the challenge, and you’ll need to be a Fan Club member to view it and join in. These great challenges are just one of the wonderful perks you receive for joining the Fan Club.

The dragonflies were stamped and colored w/ Twinkling H2o’s and cut out. I did a second one that I used to attach on top w/ foam tape for a little dimension. The layer they’re on was cut w/ a Spellbinders Labels 3 set. I left the die on top after cutting/embossing and sponged on some lt blue ink. The layer under it was a leftover piece from another project that I painted some H2O’s over the top.

The first blue layer was bugged w/ the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment was cut out and attached to another piece of the painted bg c/s which was cut w/ the smallest Nestie ovals, just a little off center.

Rhinestones were added to the branch, ribbon across the bottom and the dragonfly charm was attached w/ a rhinestone brad.
Hope to see you in the DTGD challenges! Thanks for stopping by!

It’s been a long road with many twists, turns and delays but I’m finally here. I’ve been out of town for a while so I don’t have any new cards to post yet. So, I’ll just start off with a tutorial on Watercolor Resist that I put together before I left.

Since I don’t have a new card to post just yet, I thought I’d start with the card in my header. The background of this card was made using the same watercolor technique as the Ombre Watercolor Resist technique, minus the resist part. Write the Other Way was made a few years ago and it was published in The Stamper’s Sampler in an issue that called for quotes or sayings. The stamps used were from Blockheads, Stampers Anonymous and Penny Black; the quote was computer generated onto vellum.
