Wandering Santa Card

This is another sample of sponge daubing a sky scene on glossy cardstock, click here to view a video on this technique.

Again, I used the ‘Scenic Season’ stamp set #115354, sponge daubers, Barely Banana and Bashful Blue inks on glossy cardstock.  Santa’s sleigh is ‘Wandering Words’ (#116507) one of the Holiday Mini Catalog sets that you can buy until January 3rd.

I don’t know if you can tell, but I tore a piece of paper to mask a ‘mountain’ line after stamping the trees in black Staz On.

The subtleness of this card isn’t easy to see from this photo… you can click on it to see a larger sample.

Nature’s Silhouettes Father’s Day Card

Nature Silhouettes Okay, who still hasn’t made their Father’s Day card yet?  Well, this goes out to all you slackers… this is a quick one!

The tree and deer silhouettes are separate stamps and were stamped in black and the sky was sponged (using a sponge dauber) with a *tiny* bit of the following colors (from the top down):  Bashful Blue, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom & Mellow Moss.  How easy is that?!

The designer series paper is ‘Prestwick’ (from the Fall/Winter 2008 catalog) is the exact same patterns (different colors) as the current (and retiring next week) Manchester DSP.  Love those plaids!

Quick card template I have included my ‘quick card’ template for making a super-fast card with Designer Series Papers.

The dimentions are as follows:   standard sized card turned ‘landscape’ , the bottom layer is 4×4, the next layer is 4 x 3 1/2, the top (focal stamped image) is 3 x 3 1/4.

Okay, so what are you waiting for?  You know this won’t be Tony’s card (he’d say ‘another roadkill card’ remember?)
