Well I have decided to give you a few ideas for Christmas and then I want you to know that I am taking a break till after the 1st of the year. After the first I am also not going to promise you that I will post as often…. I have no excuse except that I find the older I get the more it seems that TIME REALLY DOES FLY….I just don’t have enough hours in the day. In any case just wanted you to know that posting is going to be sporadic…some of it will depend on how much I just have to share…and how much time I have to share it…lol. I have said before and I want you to understand that I don’t know who is subscribed and who isn’t and I am not tech savvy enough to tell you that I could find out… so the reason I am suggesting you subscribe is that way you will know when I do post as it sends to your e mail address. Ok… now the card
I love watercolor and I love the look of it so this was very fun looking and the idea of using the spatter brush to make the snow by just spattering the resist medium and then letting it dry to creating the background.
I also thought the technique of spritzing and then gently using a the water brush or a brush dipped in water to pull the shadow effect down. I also liked the fact that she was able to use the same tree and changed the size of it by how much of it was actually stamped on the page and how much was put on the masking paper.
A few others that I have already shared but which you may have forgotten DAWN’S PUNCH BOARD GIFT CARD HOLDER
I DO LOVE THIS GIFT CARD holder and think you will find it useful for holiday gift giving. If you are like me most of my gifts are gift cards rather than actual gifts..so having a cool folder to insert the card makes it the perfect gift.
Another great gift card folder was this one…DAWN’S TRI FOLD GIFT CARD HOLDER.
I LIKE THE BELLY BAND ON THIS ONE… and it also has lots of room inside for you to write a personal note to the person receiving the card…that’s always a good thing.
This last one is also very nice…now its listed as a DAWN’S CONGRATULATIONS GIFT CARD HOLDER which means it could be anything…birthday, anniversary, graduation or in this case CHRISTMAS… I like the idea of still saying CONGRATULATIONS on the outside and in side saying “APPARENTLY YOU’VE BEEN NICE not NAUGHTY..lol and then slip in the gift card for money or a movie or STARBUCKS etc…
Ok that’s just a few of the ones that I came up with so check them out but don’t just stop with these there are several more cards in including this the most recent post the DAWN’S POP OUT SWING CARD
This one is also very cute and while Dawn has lots of layers…you can eliminate some of them and the card will still be quite impressive..
Ok so this is most likely my last post before the new year…just too much to do and not enough hours in the day… so check out the possibilities at both SCS AND DAWN’S STAMPING THOUGHTS.
ENJOY AND WISHING ALL OF YOU THE BEST OF HOLIDAYS AND VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR…
AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPING BY……wire headed cyber toad….aka kath
