Holiday Sparkle card

Hello Creative friends!
Today I wanted to share a card I created for my Wednesday cards group.  I used the Holiday Sparkle Bundle for the focal point.  The Holiday Sparkle set is the same set I used last week for the Holly watercolor card.  This set also has a super cutie patootie Candy Cane that I plan on using for my Christmas Cards this year.  If you  love this set as much as I do, make sure you order it before the end of September, because after that, it is gone.

Don't you just love all the bling in it?  FSJ's Brushed Silver cardstock is to die for!  and don't get me started on our sequin trim... Love it, want it, got to have it! 

Here is a video of how I made it.

I have listed all of the products below so you can recreate this card for your family and friends!
Have an Amazing Day,

Lace Background Stamp , Holiday Sparkle Bundle, Holiday Script Bundle, Bloom Cluster Die, Brushed Silver Cardstock, Silver Silk, Denim Days Sparkle Ribbon, Denim Days Cardstock, Denim Days Ink Pad, Journey Days Stapler, Clear Pigment Ink, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Scalloped oval punch, and Journey Sequins

Peace Holly Watercolor Card

Hello Creative Friends,
Today I am sharing a video of how I created this beautiful watercolor card.

Don't you just love the vintage feel of this card?!!!  and how the Journey Brush Gold cardstock just sparkles?  Check out the Gold Elements that I used behind my watercolored holly sprig,  I have some ideas to use these in a 3-D project!

Without further ado, here is the video!

Ghostly Treats

Hello Creative Friends.  Today I am sharing a card I created for my Wednesday class.  If you are in the Southern Maryland Area and wish to attend, leave me a comment so I can pm you and get your email!

Don't you just love this little Pumpkin guy from the Ghostly Treats Bundle ?  You  can make him as scary or sweet as you like.  Today, I chose to make him sweet!  I colored him using FSJ Journey Color Burst pencils.  These are the colors I used:  03,13,14,16,21,22,28,35,40,41,43, and48.

I had planned to make my card a telescoping card, but silly me put it together wrong... oops!  So instead I used my Brayer (it's on sale this month)to add some Pumpkin Bread ink to my card base.  After I added the color, I die cut the Spider Web die and glued it in the center of my base.  Can you see the sparkle?!!!  You know I have to add Journey glaze and Sparkle Dust to everything!

Thanks for stopping by, and have an Amazing Day,

Candy Monster

  Hello Creative Friends!  I am back from a long summer of working on our house and taking our youngest, Austin, to college.  Austin  is now a proud member of the Texas A&M Corp of Cadets.  Here he is with his roommate enjoying a much need evening away from his upperclass men.  Austin is on the right.

Now, that I have shared the proud mamma picture, I will take you onto the good stuff...  A Halloween card!

This cute little guy is from the fun Holiday Trends Mini.  You are able to order from this Mini Trends catalog until September 30, then these items are gone.

I stamped the "Candy Monster" BD-0161 in Whip Cream CS and used my "Color Burst" pencils  JM -0077 to color him.  Don't you just live the striped paper- it is from the "Spooky Prints pack" PP-0035 also available in the Holiday Trends mini, make sure you grab it before it's gone!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!
