‘Tis The Season: A plethora of ideas…

Tis season grp WEB

One of my favoritest–truly–stampy things to do is take a set and develop a bunch of different ideas with it. These have all been rolling around in my head for ‘Tis The Season and  it was really fun to make ‘em real!  And, I tried to film ‘em in the process.  Well, you know what they say about the road to Hades being paved with good intentions… I won’t tell you about my week, but suffice it to say that there were numerous interruptions to the mojo that ultimately led to me not realizing I hadn’t turned the camera back ON, after each interruption.   Yeaaaaaahhhhh.  In the grand scheme of life, this is nothing, really, but it does make a girl cranky… #cursewords  Keepin’ it real, folks… Just keepin’ it real…



Thanks for giving the video a thumbs’ up on YouTube!   


Tis he knows WEB1

(Not in the video).  This is a speedy quick 4 bar size card (3.5 x 5″); stamp the two sentiments inside a kraft note card, wrap it with twine and Bob’s yer uncle!

Tis he knows WEB2

Perfect for those who are more the “no fuss, no muss” type. ‘Nuff said.

Tis car WEB

I love that little car…. The camera was off on this one…. *sigh*  Stamp with bleed-proof ink, watercolor it, die cut it, white emboss a greeting, and slap it onto a woodgrain card with a messy thread nest and sequins. Swipe some Stickles on there, and call it a day.

Tis lights WEB1

Again, camera was off. But, I love.  LOVE!!!

Tis lights WEB2

The tangle lights were clear embossed over black pigment ink, colored quickly and die cut. Masked off a section on the top panel and sponged ink, allowing it to fade as I moved towards the top. I seem to do a better blending job on Bristol than Neenah Solar White. Hard to tell in the pic, but I brushed a little Wink of Stella over the tops of the bulbs for some subtle sparkle.   Did I say I love this card?


Tis sweater WEB

Camera was on for this one. *insert rolling eyeballs* I love making my own tags with the WRMK Angle Corner Chomper; no limits to size, and the thing can punch through multiple layers of card stock at the same time! *fist pump*  Wish I were skinny enough to fit into that sweater… *sigh*

Tis Santa WEB

In the video. I forced myself to use some Lawn Fawn patterned paper I’ve been hoarding….

Tis ginger WEB1

Yay! Ginger made the video! I think the glittery stripes helped set the whole thing off…

Hope these inspire!
