Stamp-Off Wreath

I got this idea from Dawn's blog and the THREE versions of the technique (Thanksgiving version with two-tone ink, a lovely less 'busy' version, and yet another version with a holiday theme. I love how you can take a basic, non-seasonal stamp and really make it pop!


I Used red cs with white core, and hit the edges with a nail file, edged my white cs with the same green ink, a leaf stamp from Studio G and the sentiment from SU!. The berries on the wreath were made by flipping over the nib on my two way (wedge tip) adhesive pen and using the circle to dot on the adhesive. I sprinkled on some glittery red ep and heat set.

In a matter of moments, with few supplies... lovely card! Thanks Dawn for the inspiration!

Quick Fire Card

This card is one more that can be done in moments!


I love pre cut/folded cards with the envies, and when I ran into one of my local big box I found a bunch for A BUCK! They are Studio G and have 8 cards/8 envies in each pack.

So, I decided I wanted to work with the window in this card and use it to 'hang' an ornament. I looped a ribbon through the window and up over the top edge of the card, tied a cute bow around both sides and tucked the tails beneath my ornament.

The ornament itself is actaully from Basic Gray, but was originally a journaling shape out of chipboard. I covered it with my Versamark pad and coated it in the red glittery EP from Adirondak, heat set and tada! Then I decided it needed a bit of something to separate it from the ribbon, so I added the black stickles.

The sentiment is from SU!
