Addicted to Stamps-Anything Goes
Color Q- Use Black, basic Grey, Cool Caribbean, White
I have had this stamp for 3 years and this is the first time I used it! I must be barking mad not to have used this before (Nyuck, Nyuck). I stamped the wolves, let's call them, Larry, Moe, Curly...and Bob, onto glossy white cardstock. I used a watercolour effect with my tombow markers (take the marker and scribble the colour on a marjarine lid then take your brush, dip it in water and place it into the scribbled colour) to colour a light grey onto a couple of the wolves and made one black...that's Bob. I cut out grey, the Caribbean blue and black and tiered it. I finished it off with some corner stickers that I coloured black. I had a howl making this card.

Christmas Cards All Year Long-Summer Colours
On Facebook, I play with silly "tests" I found out, according to Facebook (HA! yup like that's the Bible...note the sarcasm), I am 100% Hippie (Sorry Debbie) and that got me a thinking (did you notice any smoke up in the sky? That was my brain on overload) into making a Christmas cards with groovy colours. The background was using the Tim Holtz dies. You just take 3 pads of colours of your choice and stamp that colour on some surface that you can wipe up nicely. You spritz the colours with water and then place the white card onto the colours and watch it work. I took my colorburst, which is this powder that you just gently tap onto the white card and spritz with water, onto another white cardstock. I took my tree die cut and taking the new colorburst paper, I ran it through my sizzex machine. I did this 4 times. I added a pink ribbon, adhered the trees with some popup dots to mimic a forest that only Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds would see, added some snowflakes, stars and dot stickers and Voila!

Happy Little Stampers, Christmas-Snowflakes
WinterWonderland-Use Gold/Silver and/ or embossed background
I had cut out these snowflakes from this white glitter background a while ago and created a card but I liked what was left so I took foil type paper in a dark blue and lighter blue and covered it from behind so you see the snowflakes as the coloured version. I took a mirrored silver cardstock and, using my cuddlebug, embossed it with a snowflake design. I used my clear versamark pad, stamped snowflakes on the edge and placed a dark blue powder on top so one sees this shimmer of snowflakes. I punched out Trump..oops sorry daydreaming, I punched out snowflakes in silver and blue and glued that at the bottom with a blue crystal.
It has been hot, sticky, steamy and I am not talking about my sex life...oops too much information?? :) I wish this heat would end. I am Canadian and proud which means we always bitch about the weather.
