This time it is a sketch! Go to the DRS Designs blog and check it out! I used on of the easy backgrounds (the small flowers) to make the "patterned paper" and I colored the flowers with copic markers and dotted the center of each with a silver gel pen.(I love that I can make any color patterned paper with the easy backgrounds from DRS. Be sure to check them out!) I stamped this sentiment, one of my favorites, and then mounted it on the green paper. I added the primas as a fun embellishment and held them together with a flower brad in matching colors. To tie all of my dots together... I added the green dotted ribbon at the bottom.
I hope that you will check out the DRS Design blog and play along with the challenge. There is no time limit and you can use any stamps you have! Be sure to leave a link to your card on the blog, or here and please upload to splitcoaststampers.com using the keyword DRSC7. Thanks for looking and playing along! Have a Happy Monday!

I stamped 3 little stockings and water colored them in. Then I used liquid applique for the cuff and used the heat tool to puff them up! They look so fluffy and they are ready to be filled with Christmas treats. I cut them out as well and used a pop dot to adhere them to the fireplace, with care of course, and then i added a little tiny gem to make it look like a nail.
I stamped the sentiment from DRS as well and mounted it underneath the fireplace. It is on there straight in real life, but the photo makes it look a little wonky. I hope you will take a look at the easy backgrounds from DRS as the are FOOL PROOF! That is a lifesaver for me! (lol)Thanks for looking and stay tuned for all of my Christmas cards from DRS...

That title sounds so technical... but it could aslo be called a Shrinky Dink Hangy Downy card,also... but since not everyone speaks "Dawn-ese"... I went for the technical! I stamped the snowman (number H858) from DRS Designs on white polyshrink plastic with Stazon Ink. That is the best ink that I know of for this type of plastic because it resists smudging and well... it STAYS ON... and right where you put it! Then I colored them in with copic markers, cut them out and punched a hole so that I could hang this little guy up. I used the new easy snowflake background from DRS Designs (number H015) onto the blue cardstock for some zip and added the sponging for depth around the edges.
I layered the card stock, punched the holes, hung up my snowmen and layered MORE cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment from DRS Designs ( Number H858) with versamark and embossed it with frosty glittery EP. I added some glittery dots around the edges and in the corners and here it is! I started out with a WHOLE DIFFERENT idea for today's post using this stamp... and this is what evolved... and I LOVE it! I hope you will too! Check out the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.com and see what you can come up with. Thanks for looking and keep in mind, there are no mistakes... only HAPPY ACCIDENTS!!!

I made this little treat bag from 2 4 x 4 coasters and a small bag. This is SOOO easy to do and they are quick so you can make alot of them...
I took 2 4 x 4 coasters and put a 4 x 4 square of black card stock on the front. Then I matted the front with yellow and orange paper to match my design and my treat also! I stamped the image from DRS Designs and colored it with copics and glitter pens. I cut the bottom edge with the SU scallop edge punch and stamped the candy corn from DRS Designs aslo. I added the dots with embossing gel pens and a white gel pen.
I cut the brown bag down to 4 x 4 and adhered the coasters to the front and back of the bag. Next I got my handy dandy crop-a-dile, punched the holes and added eyelets and ribbon for the handles. I added some stickles and punched out 2 pumpkins with the Martha Stewart punch and added them
to the bag as well. This was made for a Challenge over at
Mothers and Daughters Creations. I hope you play along... this
was fun to do and I am sure it will come in handy for the upcoming holidays!

I think they came out pretty good. The stamps on the top card are from INKADINKADO. I love the look on the frogs face... and if we all just BELIEVE... well, ya never know...
The image on the bottom card is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps. There was a grab bag on Ebay for like $12... how could I say no... I got a HUGE variety of ALL types of stamps and this chick was in there. I love all kinds of stamps and that is totally what I got. If you need a certain stamp and think you will never find it... go there... I am willing to bet they will have it. Some of the stamps are not for the faint of heart... let's just say they have something for everyone! I hope you enjoyed my cards for wacky wino Thursday! Have a great night and a glass or 2 of vino...then go and stamp... don't forget the embellishments!!!
