A few cards The Girlio made:


Love how she wrote just a few letters of her sentiment in each speech bubble.  Super cute.  🙂

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Here is one last Christmas card:


Supplies: Paper: Basic Grey; Tag and Snowflakes: Pink Paislee; Stamp: Teresa Collins; Tape: Tim Holtz

Here’s another muted paper collection from Pink Paislee that I just loved this Christmas-very unlike my usual style, but I love how the card turned out!  I didn’t quite get the patterned paper up to the top of the card-oops!  To cover this up, I added some tissue tape.  Then, I decided to add some more tape to the tag.  I folded the tape in half, and then threaded it through the tag-love the look!  The Merry Christmas was stamped onto the tag, but I don’t think you can hardly tell that it didn’t just come that way.  My daughter informed me it needed a little something more, so I added the three little glitter dots from the snowflake pack, and there you have it-a really fun card!  This card is perfect for a music lover-in my case, this card went to my parents!

Anyway, hope you enjoyed all my Christmas cards this season!  Wishing you and yours the very Merriest of Christmases this year!  🙂

Happy Christmas Eve!!!!

Here’s yet another Christmas card for your viewing enjoyment!  🙂


Supplies: Stickers: Basic Grey, Studio Calico (letters); Stamp: Impression Obsession; Ink: Tim Holtz

For this card, I covered the paper with Peeled Paint Distress Stain.  Then, I sprayed water on my pine needle stamp, and pressed the paper onto the stamp.  It gave a really cool muted stamped background that really looks like a tree-love this technique!  I sped up the dry time with my heat gun. Then, I just dusted the back of my sticker with powder (to get rid of the stick) and adhered it to the card with dimensional adhesive.  Then, I added the sentiment.  A super easy card, but I love the result!  This is an especially good way to use up giant stickers too-sometimes those are hard to find uses for!

Hope you are having a great Christmas Eve!  🙂
