OMGosh! This release is so much fun!! My first card tonight literally came to me after I got into bed one night and I KNEW if I didn’t get up and sketch it out I’d have forgotten it by the morning, LOL! So, I got up, went into my craft room and drew it out with notes. To begin, I stamped Sheet Music Background on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with Black Licorice hybrid ink. Then I cut my card front from Ranger Watercolor Paper with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics and the center with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX.

Next I stamped the little holly spray from Hand Lettered Holiday with Black Licorice hybrid ink and the berries with Wild Cherry dye ink, and colored them with a Zig Clean Color Brush Marker. Using this, I marked where my sentiment was going to go on the card front, stamped the sentiment from Handwritten Holiday with Versamark and heat embossed with Rouge Zing! Opaque Embossing Powder. I cut a Black Licorice card stock layer with A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics, matted the holly layer, and popped them both up on the base with foam tape to finish.

For my second card, I revisited those light bulbs again, pairing them with Merry Christmas Circle Frame Die-namics.

This one took a little less actually plotting, although I roughly planned my lines before starting. First, I drew them lightly with pencil, using a Thickers Alignment Guide, then again with a black Copic Multiliner pen. I started with five lines, total, and was moving along just fine when I got a red Copic smear on my paper. I tried to remove it with a blender marker but you could still see it. My DH happened to walk in when I was SO DONE with that and tossed it in the trash. He pulled it out and suggested I add another line of “cord”. I resisted at first but didn’t want to start again so I tried that. OK, so far, so good. And then, I got TWO MORE smears!!! Arrrrgggghhhhh! So, I added yet another cord, LOL! One smear was not going to work with the second new line so I covered it with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen pretty successfully. Goes to show, most times mistakes are salvageable.

After I got all the coloring done, I cut my shaker opening with LLD Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, filled my Circle Shaker Pouch, closed up the back, and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I cut Merry Christmas Circle Frame Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock and adhered it in place for the finish. If you look really closely, you might see some little colored Christmas lights *inside* the shaker element :)

And that’s it! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR new September goodies in some fun ways. Thanks so much for stopping by…and happy shopping!! And don’t forget that
