MUSE: Christmas Visions #8


The Wonderful Muse for this week 
is Lydia Fiedler (and she made a video, too!)

MUSE : Christmas Visions is your chance for some
weekly inspiration to help you along
your way to making your Christmas Cards happen this year!









I used Tim Holtz distress inks and sponged
 them directly onto the stamp.
Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Citron.
The stamp images mimic the stripes and I also added the
same backing of glitter paper and embossed stripes.
The added green punched up my colors some.

I sure hope that you can join in!
Grab the Badge, and play along!
Check out the Card Club Sight!

The Challenge #40 - { June 22 } - THEME


Now I have REALLY cooked up 
some NAUTICAL
goodness for you ALL!

I love anything beachy, and ADORE
NAUTICAL.... Always dreamed of having a boat...
scratch that..a YACHT..LOL..

Well where was I?
Oh. I made 2 Cards for inspiration!

I used one Paper Pad, and some additional
gold glitter striped blank notecards, 
Solid Navy, and some Anchor Paper.
For the whale, I sketched and cut out
a whale on
white cardstock and on the reverse I
adhered cut strips to mimic the image on the 
DCWV Pad.
There is an image of a whale with strips..
I loved it so I CASE'd it.









Supplies:
 1 DCWV Seaside Yacht Stack (12x12)
1 Gold Glitter Striped Blank Note Card or Paper
1 4x5 Navy Cardstock
1 4x5 Anchor Paper
1 Embossed 4x5
Pop up mount squares
Glue Runner


Target Blank Notes..

Though there are glitter papers out there, and with masking
you can also venture to make your own.
