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.
These are the products I used to make it:

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.
