Sharing some Holiday fun with Sarah and Grace

Hello Friends-  This is Chris Dickinson from the COLD state of Wisconsin! I am so blessed to have daughters who LOVE to stamp with me...

This first card was made by my 6 year old daughter. This Hair Dryer Trio stamp makes me smile, and would make a perfect card for a friend! Sarah stamped this, and then with my supervision I allowed her to use my Copic Markers. When she was done coloring, she went over the image with a 2 way glue pen and showered my office and her card with glitter.

The second card I am sharing is one my talented 9 year old daughter created. She too loves to stamp with me and gets quite crafty. She used one of my favorite sets...the Fall and Winter Collage set. Grace colored the image with water based markers, and used the two way glue pen and glitter as well. She topped her project with some pretty pink organdy ribbon.

The next two projects I am sharing with you were created by me...

I used the I Brake For Stamps Christmas Collage stamp set. I stamped it with Brown Staz and painted it with Creative Inspirations - wheat, Rustic Red, Burgundy, Chocolate, Evergreen using an Aqua painter. I used the Nestibilities die to cut out the image and a  1/2 inch Circle Punch to cut out the letters. Once the letters were attached, I put a thin layer of Crystal Effects/ Glassy Glaze over it and allowed it to dry.

On my final project, I used my Copic markers and had so much fun coloring this!

I used the stamp set, I Brake For Stamps Autumn Bounty and thought of a "country blue" scene. To create the border above I used the Viva Pearl Gold Paint and allowed it to dry for about 30 minutes.

I hope you enjoyed each of these creations and that they inspired you! Have fun stamping and enjoy your day!
