More fun...

Sorry for anyone waiting on details for these cards... my morning got away from me! The above card uses the Playful Christmas set from Kitchen Sink Stamps. I was "talking" with Maria and some other Crew Members yesterday about these dew drops that I have at the store and how I bought some for myself but hadn't used them yet because they weren't "Christmas-y!" Well, Maria said something to the effect of "you can make it work" so I just had to try! I think this is rather cute, and kinda' retro! The card base is Bazzill cardstock, the white is generic, and the orchid is Stampin' Up Orchid Opulence. I stamped the first layer of the tree in Versamagic Spring Pansy, and then the second layer is stamped with Versamagic Pretty Petunia. I adhered the dew drops with glue dots. The star was stamped with Versamark, then embossed with silver EP. I cut it out and mounted it to the tree top with a dimensional. I sponged some Spring Pansy ink around the edges. The sentiment is from Kitchen Sink Stamps Never a Loss 4 Words, and is stamped in Pretty Petunia then embossed with clear EP. Adhered a few more dew drops, tied on a bow and finished! This card measures 3"x3".


This card was created using more wonderful images sent to my by Cammie! The penguin and "Winter Wishes" sentiment are from 2 different Gina K Designs sets, and the Happy Holidays is from a retired Stampin' Up hostess set called Riveting. My designer paper is from a free package I got at Archiver's designed especially for them by ki memories. I colored the penguin with Tombow markers, and used a Sakura glaze pen on his hat brim and pom-pom. The edges of the penguin piece are done with a Daisy D's rub-on tape zig-zag stitch! It's the coolest thing... rub-on tape that comes in a dispenser, just like a mono-adhesive tape runner! Lots of fun! I added a Making Memories snowflake brad to the bottom left corner, and silver brads to the sentiment. Cardstock is Bazzill Basics (the red) and Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy.

Thanks for looking! Stamp happy!
