This card was inspired by Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers #4 Sketch, and I decided to use Clearly Besotted Bah Hum-Pug stamp. I have a lot of scrap paper from making cards for Bromero’s card drive, so I decided to use up the leftover scraps to make a Christmas card.
Simple and fast card because I have been busy shopping during Black Friday. I hope everyone got to buy something nice for themselves.

Thank you for stopping by and have a good weekend.
Since I’ve been coloring for 11 days straight, I decided to make a card that doesn’t require any coloring. First, I used my Cricut to cut out a stag outline and a circle, and then I used some scrap paper to cut out some hills for masking.
I started by putting the hill on the bottom, and used GKD Lovely Lavender to ink blend. Then I move it higher to do the second and third hill. Next, I placed the circle, stag, and hill in the center to mask the white space. I started ink blending with GKD Lovely Lavender, Distress Ink Seedless Preserves, and lastly GKD Plum Punch. I needed the Distress Ink to blend between the light and dark purple. Once the ink blending was done, I used some white paint to splashed it on the background to make it look like snow. I removed the masking scraps, and put the stag outline in the middle of the moon, and used GKD Soft Stone to stamp in the stag.
This one is actually my first attempt, but I didn’t mask the moon properly when I was stamping in the stag outline. I accidentally got some grey on the top and left side of the moon. I tried fixing it with some white paint and grey trees. It didn’t really seem to work, so I just made another one. 😝
Thank you for stopping by. I’m always happy to hear from you, so leave a comment.
First, I stamped the dolphins with GKD Amalgam ink onto watercolor paper using MISTI, and then colored with Artistrove watercolor. I fussy cut out the dolphins, and die cut out the frame with Whimsy Stamps Slimline Card Builder Die. Next, I started to ink blend the frame with GKD Dusty Rose, Lovely Lavender, and Sea Glass. I added some adhesive on the frame and adhered it to clear acetate sheets. I cut out another white cardstock that is the same size as the frame and inked Distress Ink Salty Ocean over an wave stencil.
I attached the dolphins onto the frames + acetate sheet, and stamped sentiments on the frame.
Once I was done with all the colors and inks, it was time to assemble the shaker card. I added foam tape around the windows on the back of the acetate, and poured in my sequins and glitter. Make sure the foam tape is completely sealed around the windows, so that no glitter can come out. Next, I put my wave stenciled white cardstock over the foam tape and attached everything to the card.
It’s Day 10 out of 11 of the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge! I decided to use the Word of Hope Stamp by Graciellie Design from Unity Stamp Co. I stamped the orchids with embossing ink onto a dark grey cardstock, and then used Gold Embossing Powder from Ranger. Next, I colored the stamp in with colored pencils.
Since I didn’t have a dark magenta cardstock, I decided to use GKD Plum Punch and ink the edges of a white cardstock. I put that underneath the dark grey cardstock and adhered them over a white card.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! Have a good weekend!
For Day 9 of the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge, I decided to try no-line watercoloring for the first time. First I stamped the Merci Beaucoup flower from Clearly Besotted with GKD White Pigment Ink on to watercolor paper. To see the white ink better, I would hold the paper at an angle, and then I would line over the white ink with purple or green watercolor and blend it out. After coloring the flower, I used Misti to add the sentiment from Stick Together by Unity Stamp Co with GKD Lovely Lavender .
My details for the middle of the rose got lost during coloring. It was really hard to see the white lines, and my brush just wasn’t fine enough for the little details.
Thank you for your visit and time. 😊 Any suggestions on how to improve my no-line watercoloring is appreciated.
For Day 7 of the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge, I decided to color in the Winter Fireplace Set from Limited Runs Stamps that I just won with colored pencils. I die cut a rectangle piece of white card stock and a circle in the middle of the card stock. I wanted the kissing mice that I colored from Day 6 to pop away from the fireplace, so I used foam adhesive squares to adhere the white card stock. Lastly, I added the mistletoe that was also from Kiss Me Quick by Clearly Besotted with foam adhesive square.
Day 6 of Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. Super late post because I haven’t had time to write my blog, although I already posted on my Instagram. I don’t know how people have both a blog and an Instagram. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed doing both.
I water colored these cute little critters from Kiss Me Quick by Clearly Besotted, and used the bunnies to make a CAS card.
To make this blue winter wonderland, I cut out a hill and a circle from scrap cardstock and used them as masking paper. I then ink blended with GKD Sea Glass to give it a winter wonderland feel, and stamped in some tree tops with GKD Soft Stone. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on the write corner. This card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #461.
