Merry Monday 105:


Welcome to another week at Merry Monday, where we all get a head start on our Christmas cards.

This week, Sue has chosen the theme of decorating each letter/word on your card.




I started with some pink sparkly cheetah print chipboard from my stash.  I switched the "Q" to an "O" but cutting it down and filing it smooth:



 I then used a Copic marker to get a nice Christmasy colour base:



Then came the glue that I smeared on with a paintbrush:



 And the fun part:  glitter!!!!!!!



Put it all together, and here is the end result.  I am so happy I didn't throw away those chipboard alphas as they received a fancy new face-lift.

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Stampendous!
Inks: Memento Rhubarb Stalk
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Bits/Bobs:  Martha Stewart Garnet sparkles, Recollections gems, Lipstick Copic, DCWV chipboard alphas

Our Easter plans have been delayed as a big Spring storm has moved in.  It started with freezing rain and now the snow is going across the sky horizontal :S

So it seemed like a good idea to get into the craftroom!

I would like to say that I threw this card together rather quickly, but this is actually my secound attempt of it.  The first one had no personality and was just plain *bla* ...  Into the garbage it went.

I made this card for my boss who celebrates his Name Day on Tuesday.  Yes I said "his" - I know he won't mind a smidge bit of pink ;)

I inked up my feather stamp (because I love it so!) and used acetate to keep in the sequins (more of my favourites!!)

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  Inkadinkado Feather
Inks:  Memento Bamboo Leaves, Gray Flannel, ColorBox Razzberry
Papers:  MME Dilly Dally, LilyBee
Cardstock:  DCWV, Bazzill
Bits/Bobs: Lawn Fawn sequins, Studio Calico sequins, American Crafts jute, LilyBee sentiment sticker, Celebrate It button, acetate
Tools: Oval Nestie


I created this card for the following challenges:
Seize the Sketch
Color Throwdown
 Curtain Call






Happy Easter to all!  Stay safe out there.

Merry Monday #103:


Merry Monday all!!  What a gorgeous weekend it was, Spring has finally come for a visit (and will hopefully stay awhile).  I was able to open my craftroom window a smidge to let in some fresh air - yummy!


Even my lil helper, Pixie Girl, found a patch of sunshine in the craftroom:



Welcome to another week at Merry Monday, where we all get a head start on our Christmas cards.
This week, Kathie has has chosen the theme of using a snowman on your card:



I decided to go vintage again as this lil snowman was calling my name.  Look at those little chubby cheeks :)
I had to carefully place my Christmas tag, as this vintage image comes with a New Year's sentiment.  I figure the recipient won't be standing on their head so *shouldn't* won't be seen ;)


Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Old Design Shop snowman, KaiserCraft Christmas Card rub-on sentiment, KaiserCraft Believe (background)
Inks:  Tim Holtz Old Paper
Papers:  Authentique Joyous, Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas
Cardstock: Recollections
Bits/Bobs:  Gelly Roll white pen, Recollections gems, Wild Orchid flowers
Tools:  Oval and Labels 18 Nesties, Making Memories edge distresser
