Happy Holidays! - Wreath Tutorial

This wreath is made entirely from the fern Martha Stewart punch!! I love this idea - it was really pretty easy.

The finished card size is 4x4.

Supplies: Stamps- Hero Arts; Paper- Really Red, Whisper White, Old Olive, Always Artichoke; Ink- Staz-on, Old Olive; Misc-CB Snowflake Embossing Folder, Bling, Stickles, Circle Cutter, Ribbon - SU, Word Window Punch - McGill, Fern Punch - MS, sponges.

See below for Tutorial on making your own! :)

Fern Wreath Tutorial:

Supplies you will need: Circle cutter, Fern Punch - Martha Stewart, 2 colors cardstock (I used Olive and Artichoke), Quick Dry Glue with fine tip - I use Scotch., bling, stickles. Using the two different cardstocks, punch several of the ferns from each paper - I used more of the Olive than I did Artichoke.

First, cut a thin ring using a circle cutter. The end result should look like the next picture.


Glue the 'stick end' of the fern punch down leaving the rest of the branch to 'pop' up.

Continue gluing pieces around your cirle and then embellish with ribbon, bling, and stickles or whatever you like!


My very first Copic Card!!!

Wow, it seems like forever since I have posted (LOL - I just posted another card minutes ago! - But seriously, my pc has a bunch of viruses and I finally dropped it off to be fixed. I broke down and am posting from my dd's laptop!!) :)

Anyhoo, this is my first Copic Card!! YAY - so glad to be taking the plunge! Ok, so I had limited colors when I created this, so the present is actually done with SU markers! Love this Fluffles stamp, but wish there was a sentiment that says, "Shakey-Shakey" - maybe next time I will print it out! :)

Recipe: Stamps - Fluffles - Stampendous, Merry Christmas - Hero Arts; Paper - Riding Hood Red, Artichoke, Whisper White, Basic Grey - Blitzen (totally old-school!); Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics - C3, C5, SU Markers - Ruby Red, Old Olive, Apricot Appeal (nose); Misc - Stickles, Nesties, Snowflake Punch - Martha Stewart, Oval Cutter - CM, Crop-A-Dile, bling, snowflake embossing folder - CB

Christmas Party Invite

I made these invites for a Christmas party we are having in the neighborhood in a few weeks. I dipped into my Basic Grey stash and pulled out a striped pp from the Figgy Pudding line - going retro, again! LOL! I watercolored the house and trees, masked it and sponged the sky. I then used glitter and glue (not stickles for once) for the shimmer! The sentiment is from the internet and I just typed it up and printed.


Stamps- Great Impressions; Paper- Watercolor paper, Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke, Figgy Pudding - BG; Ink - Staz-on, bashful blue, choc chip, artichoke, bordering blue, really red; Misc - Aqua painter, sponges, glitter, nestabilities

TFL! :)
