Santa I Can Explain! - Sassy Holiday Card

Hi Dreamers!
Happy Monday!  I think Monday is a good day for a sassy Holiday card.  Check out Marilyn Monroe!  This stamp is from The Stampsmith's Marilyn Monroe full sheet.  Oh dear, I think she has a lot of explaining to do!!

Stamp the image on white glossy CS with black dye ink.  Add a layer of red CS.  Make a card base from red CS and layer with DP (My Mind's Eye)  Die cut the diamonds (diamonds are a girl's best friend you konw) from DP.

Wrap the tulle around the card.  Wad up a strip of tulle and glue to card.  Punch the flowers and add to card.  Add pearl.

Stamp the sentiment (from Printworks) and add to card.  Punch another flower and glue to sentiment.

A Few Fun challenges for Marilyn:
Love to Create: Holiday cheer
Dream Valley: non traditional Christmas
the Artistic Stamper: Home for Christmas
Cards Galore: Christmas
Cup Cake Craft Room: anything goes for Christmas
Oozak Challenge: anything goes + red

Another cute card for my basket.  Now, I have to start sending them out!  I really must get busy.   I just need about 4 extra hours in a day and I can get everything done.   Hope you are having a super day!   Let's see what I have scheduled for tomorrow.  I am checking my schedule and it says that tomorrow is Paper Artsy day.  Ohh, you will like this...a decorated box and a card.  See you later alligator.   Love ya.


  1. Just been admiring this over at the Stampsmith - she's definitely been a bad girl - not sure Santa will be bringing her anything this year! Fabulous card... and looking forward to PaperArtsy tomorrow!!

  3. Hi again, Karen. WOW, you sure are a busy little crafter, and what gorgeous creations - your blog is just filled with beautiful things. I know that when I stopped by earlier, I invited you to come by Word Art Wednesday ( and play along with us. But, I also noticed that we are not yet following one another. So, I just became your follower, and I really hope that you will pop back over to my blog and follow me as well. I LOVE having new followers, and I'm sure you do too. I get SO inspired by other people's art - and like I said, you have SO many beautiful things here. Thanks for sharing! So, here's me being redundant - I hope you will play along at WAW, and stop by to follow my personal blog. I look forward to seeing you at both, and to being inspired by you more!
