STAMPlorations December...

... theme and sketch...

Here is the actual sketch and graphic from STAMPlorations:

Supplies and notes:

  • The flowers (by STAMPlorations) stamped in Ranger Archival on an old dictionary page then Colorbursted
  • Fussy cut the flowers and pasted them onto black scrap paper with matte Mod Podge, then pasted over them to seal them
  • When dry, I ripped the paper and pasted it onto the card
  • "Thinking of you" written with Faber-Castell Pitts
When I made this, I had just finished my hand-deliver holiday cards... I needed non-xmas!  Is that bad?  Don't worry... I still have the holiday spirit.  I just need to drink some eggnog to recharge it!


  1. wooow so contrast Mimi
    love the black and the flowers color
    great fussy cut you did my friend
    and great using the sketch too
    Adorable and Merry Christmas once more dear Mimi

  2. The black background to your Colorburst flowers is so striking.
    Thanks for linking up at STAMPlorations. :)

  3. LOVE the mixed media feel to your blooms:)) Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations Theme and Sketch challenge.

  4. The black panel makes the bold colors of the flowers stand out beautifully and I think there's something exotic about this design.

  5. What a great CAS card!Love those colorful flowers! Who da thunk you could combine mixed media with CAS--Mimi can! Hugs!
