Online Extravaganza. And a stack of cards.

Hi all, it's been quiet here but I'm beavering away trying to make as much Christmas cards as possible.

I have  PDF for you in case you want to check out all the products of this Online Extravaganza.


I made a stack of Christmas cards. And they were quick Christmas cards. I include a small tutorial to show you how I made these.

First you gather your supplies. A piece of watercolor paper, a stamp (I used the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree), some Stampin' Write Markers and a Stampin' Spritzer.

You start with colouring your tree with the Stampin' Write markers, I used Old Olive and Early Espresso with my tree.

Spritz your stamp with water and stamp image on you piece of watercolor paper.
When you hold it down for 3 seconds of less you get a watercolor look.

When you hold you stamp on the paper a little bit longer you get a more defined look.
My preference was the watercolor look.

I glued my stamped piece to Crumb Cake cardstock and tied some Cherry Cobbler Bakers's Twine around my card to finish it of.
