Today’s Handmade Card Idea

We’re doing a little Christmas preview with Blendabilities Markers today.  It’s something great for those of you who like to water color or who would like to water color.

It uses that cool Christmas Bauble stamp featured on page 19 of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Seasonal Catalog.

Christmas Card

Honestly?  The Whisper White & Soft Suede piece was already attached together and sitting on our stamp table unused and lonely.  I must’ve barked and distracted her because she stamped it off center!

That’s what inspired us to add the greeting from Merry Everything.  We put that up in the huge blank spot she left in the upper right corner.

Water coloring with the alcohol based Blendabilities Markers is easy and fun, but it may not be for mass producing hundreds of cards.  That is unless you have a lot of time on your hands.  But it was perfect for the pre-layered card stock that we had.

Here’s what we used on this card.  Perhaps we should show you later how we made that Cherry Cobbler Layer.  Now THAT was a bit of easy engineering!

We’d love to help you get your supplies.  Just click on any picture to get started.  NOTE:  You’ll save 15% when you purchase the Merry Everything stamp set together with the coordinating punch.

We would love to help you stock your paper crafting supplies.  Use the code PMEWEGKT when you shop here & we’ll include a small gift with the handmade card we send to thank you for shopping with us.
