Is It Over Yet?

Are you feeling it?!  Are you over it?  Well Merry flipping' Christmas!  Ha ha...I just had to do it! This image by Bloobel Stamps, teamed up with some Tonic goodies it worked out perfectly to create this hilarious card.   As soon as I saw the image I had to have it!  This year we are keeping it very simple and it has been such a stress free time.  A little 4.5 ft fake tree decorated with a dozen or so special ornaments and nothing underneath...not even a tree skirt...yet...I'm sure a couple little goodies will show up after Santa crawls through the RV fan opening on the roof.   Putting away the whole Christmas thing will be simple too...YAY!  I love stress free...just like making this card...well almost.

Did you know Tonic Studios has Glimmer Paste, Stencils as well as the loved Nuvo drops?  For this card I used Beautiful Bokeh stencil with the Garnet red Glimmer Paste.  Using a craft knife I spread the Glimmer Paste over the stencil and then gently removed it.  The great thing about this Glimmer Paste is it dries quickly allowing you to continue working on your card... UH OH...dries quickly?    Better get the glimmer paste washed off the stencil and quit my fussy-farting around.  I won't do that again....stencil cleaned well after a little scrubbing though.  WHEW!  After I was done assembling the card I added a little Woodland Green Crystal Drops to the red Bokeh background and accented a few white spaces.  I think its perfect!.  The shimmer is amazing but of course photos don't pick it up well...you will just have to trust me.



If you need some personal spoiling for Christmas how about treating yourself to a few days of coloring, knowledge and fun in Phoenix, Arizona?!

Cute card, Jenn. Thank goodness we have a stress free Christmas time, also. The ornament almost looks metallic. That boy needs a good massage for Christmas.

I so wish I was coming to the Copic classes.[Bunny]
