Wow, can you believe it is already December? I guess now would be a good time to get serious with the Christmas card making if you haven't already started! My card today features the Stained Glass background stamp. These background stamps are easy to use and really look beautiful. I started by stamping the stained glass on white card stock with Memento Black ink and the main image in black ink, then heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I used my lightest colored Copic markers to color in the stained glass.
The card base is black CS with a layer of white CS that was embossed with the Swiss dots folder after die cutting the window with a nestie die. I used the same die and the next size up to cut the black frame. Some velvety black ribbon and rhinestones finish the look. Hope you like it!
There's still time to join in this week's challenge. You can see details here.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Until next time,

I hope all of you survived the Black Friday madness. Working on the other side of the table has really opened my eyes the this holiday tradition. Oh well on to my card.
I love this happy little snowman. The stamp is Large Happy Snowman Portrait he was colored with Copic markers then fussy cut. The Merry Christmas Stamp was stamped with white ink onto navy card that was cut with a Spellbinder die. The background grounds are embossing folders.
Have a wonderful day,

The fine folks at DRS Designs should have never let me be in charge of Saturday posts, at least during college football season.
I couldn't help myself once I conjured up the idea for this card.
For this week's card, I stamped the DRS Designs image of "Ohio Buckeye" onto X-Press It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored it with Copic markers and cut around it with detailed scissors. I adhered the buckeyes and leaves to scarlet cardstock that was cut with an emerald die set from Spellbinders. It was trimmed with a black marker and framed with silver cardstock.
Then, I stamped DRS Designs "High Tailin' Turkey" with Memento Tuxedo Black onto another sheet of X-Press It cardstock. I colored the turkey with Copic markers, drawing the "M" on his body. I cut around the image with my detailed scissors.
I stamped a portion of the sentiment from "Ohio Buckeye" inking with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker and adding an "s" and an "!". I cut the speech bubble with a die from Spellbinders.
I assembled everything onto a piece of texturized white cardstock, paper pierced and faux stitched, and framed with black and silver cardstock. Two pieces of "Ohio State" ribbon were added to the card as a final touch.
I hope your favorite team wins today. Well, unless your team is M!ch*g@n, LOL.
Final score???!!!! Buckeyes all the way, of course!!!
Thank you for visiting the DRS Designs Blog today.
Saturday Smiles (and Go Buckeyes!),
Edit after The Game: Whew! Michigan played an outstanding game. I'll be the first one to admit that, and I'm so thankful for the Buckeye win.
