Online Card Classes, Holiday Style, Home for the Holidays

Today was Day 9 of the Online Card Class and the cards by the instructors were oh so beautiful!!

I was feeling somewhat lacking in talent in the watercoloring department!  Haha!!  But I took my inspiration from Dawn Wolesagle and her oh so beautiful wreath!  I was really helped by her tip to use very little water on the brush.

The wreath is from a stamp set by Inkadinkadoo that I picked up on clearance at Michael's for $2.99 (HAD to buy it at that price!)  I used all Distress inks in one form or another for the coloring of the stamp.  I used the markers, re-inkers, and smooshed some ink from the pads onto my craft sheet.   I also blended gold Perfect Pearls with Ground Espresso to use on the frame and pine cones.

I also stamped the sentiment (old stamp set purchased a long time ago) in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to continue the rustic look I was hoping to achieve.

I really love making cards for Christmas!  This class has been perfect for inspiring different ideas!

Thank you so much for taking a look!  I also thank you for any comments--hugs to you!


  1. You have a great deal of detail, and still managed to have a very soft look. Absolutely lovely!

  2. Wow, just wow that is beautiful!
