When flipping through our Holiday Catalog, I fell in LOVE with the Thanksgiving card on page 44.
It’s the top left card- using the Merry Merlot card stock.
I think it’s so much fun to COLOR and that;s just what I did!
Using our Watercolor Pencils, it was fun –just like being back in kindergarten!
Then I gently used my Aqua Painter and with soft, one directional strokes, covered over the colored layers.
First I apologize for the poor image –I was in a hurry to get it posted for my Demonstrators–am a work in progress!
I used Crumb Cake as the card base at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/2
2.Then I took a piece of Pumpkin pIe at 5 x 3 /3/4 and ran it through the Big Shot using the new Tin Tile Embossing Folder.
3.Then I took a Sponge Dauber and used Pumpkin Pie ink to distress the embossed layer.
4.I did use Tear & Tape to adhere it to the base layer. I think with thicker embossing folders, extra adhesive is a great way to insure it sticks properly.
5.Next I took the wagon stamp and message and used Stazon to stamp on a layer of Very Vanilla.
THEN -for me the REAL FUN began! COLORING!
6.I used the WATERCOLOR PENCILS and colored away.
NO fuss, no worry, just easy broadstrokes over the images–kinda like an ombray effect.
7.THEN I took my Aqua Painter and very gently and in one direction only, blended the colors a tad more.
8.I made a tiny bow with the Braided Linen Thread and attached with a Glue Dot.
9.This layer was attached to a piece of Crumb Cake. The edges were distressed using the blade of my Snips–just to give it a bit more dimension. Dimensionals were used to pop it on top of the textured piece.

I think this Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Blizzard card is simply ELEGANT!
I used Coastal Cabana, Pool Party and Whisper White Card stock, plus the gorgeous stamp set and framelts to create this seasonal card.
I first took the base Coastal Cabana layered a piece of Pool Party on top. Then I stamped the white layer with Coastal Cabana and Pool Party –randomly all over the front with a bit of a diagonal angle.
Here’s a view of the snowflakes with the Sparkle Glimmer Paper and a few Rhinestones for a subtle yet elegant addition.
Here’s the inside:

This is a BEAUTIFUL stamp set and Bundle – ” Cake Soiree”
The stamps are so festive and elegant and very easy to use.
This card uses a base of Whisper White card stock cut to the usual 8 1/2′ x 5 1/4′ and scored at 4 1/4′.
Then a layer of Berry Burst cut to 5 1/4′ x 4 and adhered to the base
Next I took a piece of Marina Mist , cut to 5 x 3/3/4″ and ran it through the Big Shot using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.
Next is a piece of white card stock cut to 3 x 4 1/2″.
I stamped the cake image with Black Archival Ink then used Old Olive, Berry Burst, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight Markers with an Aqua Painter. (I love coloring!!!)… and of COURSE some Wink of Stella!
This layer was attached using Dimensionals.
I used SIlver Foil Paper backed with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to cut out the cake pedestal and plate with the corresponding framelits.
It’s very easy using those Adhesive sheets on small ( or not so small) images. No mess at all!
