It was a crafty-ness packed, fun filled weekend and I totally had the best time. I hung with my gals and we just played until we couldn't hold our eyes open anymore. Then we'd go to bed and sleep. Get up in the morning and start all over again. Thanks to Deb Segler for she was the genius behind it all. Thanks to my gal pals; Ann, Lorna, Nancy and Tamara for all the laughs and creativity and love! Can't wait till we can all get together and do it again!
Special Thanks to Rita Barnhardt at Priceless Memories in Wylie, TX for her hospitality and her delicious cooking.
For my card I used the Vintage Santa stamp from Stampabilities. The sentiment is a die from Peachy Cheap. To add some color to my stamped image I used Distress Oxide inks on a cotton swab.
The stamped background is En Francais from Stampin' Up!
This card was created using a varied array of supplies.
I started with SU! Whisper White cs. Using a dauber I applied TSUKINEKO pigment inks -- Toffee, Imperial Purple, Deep Lagoon and Spanish Moss. Then placing a few different stencils in the bottom right hand corner I applied Imperial Purple and Blue Lagoon. Then with Staz-On Black I stamped Textures Water Droplets (CM-T3) from Designs by Ryn. I added white gel pen to highlight the droplets. I used a stencil from Layers of Color Natural Flourish and daubed on Spanish Moss.
Then on another piece of cs I stamped the little seahorse from Pink Paislee's Nantucket stamp set. With my daubers I rubbed on the TSUKINEKO inks. Then I took my Stickles and added some glitz. Lastly I added some rhinestones and call it done. Hope you like my little trip to the ocean. It's been mighty chilly here in North Central Texas for the past week. I was just envisioning some warmer temps.
Designs by Ryn has a challenge going on right now. So if you…
