Silent Night Bendi Christmas Card

Hello! Peggy here to show you my latest Christmas card using Dreaming Tree SVG files and my eBrush by Craftwell USA. 

Supplies used today are: 
Electronic Cutting Machine
Spectrum Noir Markers
white cardstock
patterned paper

 I cut all my pieces out with my electronic cutting machine.  All of the pieces I wanted to spray I cut out of white paper.  I started with my spectrum noir markers, spraying in blue first and then black to make more of a silhouette image.  I sprayed my trees in the background around the edges to give more depth. 
 This time instead of cutting my sentiment I used a marker in place of the cutting blade and had it write instead of cut. I used a Teresa Collins "design grids" embossing folder with my Cut N Boss Machine.  Now This machine makes things easy with a press of a button instead of cranking like other embossing machines. Fabulousness! 
 I used two brads to hold my sentiment in a "Bendi" hold. The two sides of the card are glued together to make the card bendi they have slits that each side fits into. 
 And that is it! So easy! I used glitter as snow and it's ready to mail out.

The ivy berries, Ode To Joy Sentiment, ribbon on the presents and the star on top of the Christmas tree. 
 I use a spray box to color all my pieces. My eBrush makes it so easy and fast!
 I glued all my pieces down. It was coming together nicely.
 There you have it! all glued and colored. I used some gold stickles to enhance my ribbons and star.
 Dreaming Tree SVG's are so special. So much dimension and they fold flat to mail.

Exploring My Backyard with Susan K Weckesser

 Howdy! Peggy here, to show you my art journal page using Susan K Weckesser stamps and stencil.

Today I used "Journal doodles with a Heart" Stamps and I love them! there are 20 stamps in this package to help you journal. From flowers to leaves and sentiments too!  I also love that they come in a zip lock back for storage. This package has quality red rubber stamps that can be cling mounted.

The supplies used today are:
Susan K Weckesser Stamps Journal Doodles with a Heart
Susan K Weckesser Stencil
Lindy's Stamp Sprays
Spectrum Noir Markers
Gelly Roll Pens
Distress Inks
I used Lindy's sprays for the background and let it dry naturally.
Next I started with a fabulous stencil. I used Black distress inks with the stencil and made a border around my page.  I decided to make my own focal image and since my backyard on the ocean is full of salmon coming to spawn in the creek beside my house. I drew a salmon and doodled to my heart's content. I colored with spectrum noir markers and glued it down with glue.
 I stamped all over my page with "Journal Doodles with a Heart" stamps. I hope you enjoy my results! My doodles around my focal fish says "In my backyard Salmon are a plenty. My backyard where the bears come to eat the salmon and berries." and below reads Where The Rainforest Meets the Sea.

I hope you enjoyed today's journal page. 


Christmas Card with Dreaming Tree and Craftwell USA

Hello and welcome! Peggy here to show you my eBrushed Christmas Card with our November Sponsor Dreaming Tree.  These little svg's are so easy to make and fold flat to send by snail mail. 

Supplies used today are: 
Dreaming Tree SVG file
Electronic Cutting Machine
Spectrum Noir Markers
Designer Paper
White Cardstock
glue/xyron sticker machine
Crystal fine sparkles

I downloaded the svg files from Dreaming Tree and cut them on my electronic cutting machine. I used all white cardstock except for the background patterned paper.
Now it's time to color. 

I broke out my eBrush and my spectrum noir markers and below you can see the background image. I sprayed with TB8. I made the moon edges darker to create a shadow. Then I sprayed the entire thing to make it all darker. I then needed some falling snow. I used watered down gesso on my brush and sprinkled white all over the surface.  The circle for the moon is getting put on a white card base that actually gives the card a translucent moon. If you hold the finished card up to the light you can see what I mean.  I sprayed all of my pieces of white cardstock including my leaves.
Here I used my handy Xyron sticker maker to make the fence, that was also eBrushed, sticky.

I used DR3 Spectrum Noir Marker for the fence and my eBrush. 
Once all my pieces were colored and glued together with the easy directions from Dreaming Tree it was time to put it all together! Below you can see I used crystal fine sparkles as snow.

And that's it! Here is my result!

I hope you enjoyed today's wintery card. Check out Dreaming Tree's website and Craftwell USA for more product information.


Creating With Susan K Weckesser

Hello Folks! Peggy here, today I would like to show you my card design with Susan K Weckesser Paper and Stamps. I loved coloring this little stamp.

I chose background paper from the Susan K Weckesser Color Burst Collection  and the Live, Love, Create Collection
 I fussy cut flowers from the Live in Color Paper Collection
My sweet girl is from the Love Ya Whole Bunches Stamp Set.. Is she not the cutest!.
I stamped her using Memento Black ink so I could color without my image bleeding into the colors. 


I colored my image with Copic Markers  . I just love this card.. and the details in the stamp images make coloring these images a pleasure. 

I placed all my paper pieces on black cardstock.

eBrushed Paper Tiffany Lamp

Hello! today I would like to show you my Tiffany Lamp. 
Supplies used today are: 
Spectrum Noir Markers
SVG File /Cutting machine
Wet/Dry Glue Tape

First I cut out my lamp pieces and vellum pieces so I could color them. I used my lamp pieces as a guide as to where to place my color.  I found I had a vibrant color if I sprayed both sides of the vellum but both options look great. 

 Here are my pieces ready for glueing. As you can see you do not need to be precise. I colored red dots according to the lamp design and smudged it with a yellow spectrum noir marker. Then I sprayed the entire piece with yellow.
 These pieces are a lighter shade of green and yellow lower middles. After each piece was sprayed and colored the way I liked I glued them into place. The larger tabs I used double sided tape and for smaller areas I switched between crystal lacquer and a glue writing pen.
 Next it was time to put the entire top of faux glass together. I used grips to hold them in place.

 Here is my finished product! I hope you like it! .. I just love tiffany lamps.. my fav!

Have a great day Thanks for looking!!
