Gorgeous Grunge meets Festival of Trees

Here is another card that we made at club.  It was totally a fan favorite because at this point I am pretty sure that I've convinced most of my gals that the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set is mandatory ... so they love it when I use it and combine it with other sets to provide lots of new ideas!   Who would have thought that it'd be perfect for a Christmas card?
I did see an initial idea on pinterest but I cannot read the font on the picture to thank them for the inspiration but once I started stamping I changed things up and used different colors, images and added in another stamp set all together too! One of the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set!  Have you checked it out yet?

Stamping Supplies:
Real Red ink
Crumb Cake ink
Old Olive ink and cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Gorgeous Grunge stamp set
Festival of Trees stamp set
& coordinating Tree Punch
Holiday Cheer Project Life stamp set
Good Greetings Hostess Set

Happy Stamping!

NEW Weekly Deals!


I'm back to share the NEW Weekly Deals that are available this week!  Check it out, see if there are any of your favorites on sale!  Did you know that I can create a "Hostess Code" for you, and it's valid for 30 days and it allows you to place smaller orders and take advantage of the Weekly Deals and any other promotions and it combines all smaller (<$150) orders together by association using the same hostess code and provides Hostess Benefits once you reach $150 or more!  Let me know if you would like to have me set one up for you, in order for it work, I have to set it up (free, easy, no obligation) before the 1st order is placed!  You can also use it with friends, anyone that places an order using the code is tallied towards the total.  It's actually VERY EASY!

I love the Deco Labels Framelits and the Clear Oval Accent die - not only do they coordinate with  stamp set images but they are both perfect for tag toppers on cello bags, or on any of our kraft paper sacks (chevron stripes, polka dots, etc).

To place an order, SHOP HERE 

Thanks, have a great day!

Blending Away

Hello there,
Here's hoping you are having a great start to your weekend!  I had a fun time Friday planning around in the studio with our new BLENDABILITIES Alcohol Markers. They were introduced earlier in the year and I just honestly hadn't made time to really sit and play ... so I dug them out to make a cute lil tag for a small gift for Marlene.  I actually went with gal pal Lynda to take class at Marlene's house, such a fun night of stamping, giggling, laughing and more!

I used the Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive colors along with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and whisper white card stock.  The markers are all the same main color, but come as a light, medium, and dark so that you can put down layers of depth of color very easily.  So there's no wondering which to grab that will work well with each other, which is one reason I never got into alcohol markers before - too overwhelming and confusing.

This is still one of my first attempts playing so I am happy but I think the more I play and practice the better I will get at knowing where I want my darker shadows and overall blending.  Have you tried them yet?

I don't think my photos are great because it was late but here they are!  A small bottle of wine in one of our Tag a Box kits ... Perfect size for a little thank you!

The colors looks a little off (on my iPad anyhow) ... So I may have to edit the post later depending on how they look on the computer.

Hope you enjoy it!
