Hi Blog Friends!
Well, do YOU have your Christmas Cards done?
Not me.
I don't know what is wrong with me lately, but I just can't seem to put together what I want.
SOOOO, I saw what Dina was doing on her blog & over at SCS......
Have you seen this?
Check here:
So, I set to work today to try my hand.....
Here's what I came up with:
I wanted to do my card in blues.....sigh!
I used SU- Ornaments Keepsakes Stamps along with the coordinating dies.
 I also used SU- Water Color Crayons.
I used my McGuill Stylus' to create dimension for the balls & even added Dimensional's behind them so they wouldn't flatten in the mail.
I wanted the ornaments to have that glistening sheer look that old vintage ornaments have, so I added some Yasutomo Shimmer Water Colors also, along with a Silver Glitter Pen
& Faber Castells' Pitt Artist Pen 251***.
This is the inside where I used SU- Ornament Keepsakes stamp set,
 & for the sentiment- SU- Bells & Boughs.
For my own little touch, I added snowflakes with
SSS- Falling Snow Stencil & Dick Blick's Modeling Paste.
So, are you smitten with this too?
*********UPDATE: This card was chosen as a FAVORITE for this week over at SCS!*********
This is exactly what I needed Dina!
Supplies not mentioned above:
 DCWV- Primrose Stack
Paper Studio
Strathmore 140 lb. Water Color Paper
Zig Millenium Pen


  1. Oh, Becky, this is absolutely GORGEOUS, and you've really done a fabulous job on your first try after seeing Dina's amazing tutorial. She is so talented! I just love the vibrant colors you've used, and it really is a stunning card with the shimmery coloring you've done - taking it to the next level! Hugs, sweet friend!
