Christmas Whimsy with Paper Artsy Stamps

Hello Dreamers!

Back after a few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Had a nice  dinner and quality time with my family.  Back and ready to rock in the Christmas season with this fun, whimsical card made with Lynne Perrella Paper Artsy stamps available in the USA from Blockheads Paper Arts.

 Size: 4 1/2 x 7 1/2"

Materials need to make the background and the card:
Stamps: Babushka Balloon Paper Artsy from Blockheads Paper Arts
Jet Black Stazon
Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss Distress Ink Re-inkers
Black Soot Distress Ink Pad
Stains: Antique Bronze Distress Stain
White Glossy, Black, and Green
Green Ribbon, Black Lace, Gold Rick Rack, Green Rhinestones
Craft Sheet

To make the Background Paper, see my Tutorial here.

After the background paper is dry:
  • Stamp the Believe Balloon with Stazon ink.
  • Layer onto black CS and a Green card base.

  • Cut a length of the Green ribbon in half lengthwise and glue to the right side of the card leaving an open space between the ribbon halves.
  • Add a scrap of black lace over the ribbon covering the open space.  I split the ribbon because I felt the original width was too narrow for the card design.
  • Glue a piece of gold rick rack over the lace.
  • Add the rhinestones
  • Tie the green ribbon into a bow and glue to the top of the balloon.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and have lots of time to be creative and make some fun projects.  Love  ya.
