Watermelon Wonder Christmas at Stamp Ink Paper

Christmas Stamp Ink Paper

What’s so watermelon about a Merry & Bright Christmas card? Absolutely nothing, but one of the colors for this week Stamp Ink Paper Color Challenge.  It’s the first time I have used this entire stamp set and I must say, “Darlin’ I’m lovin’ it!”


Many of you took advantage of the awesome designer series paper flash sale.  If you blinked you missed it.  However, there are still many more items and that start at 50% off.  I urge you to take a peek at what they still have here.


  • Fire Burning.  The brick, logs, and fire were all watercolored.  I used Real Red, Tangerine Tango, and Daffodil Delight.  I used a very tiny thin paint brush and soaked it in water before dipping it in another itty bitty drop of each ink.  I love how it came out so real lookin’.  I did the same to the brick and logs!  Perfect!

Card Recipe:

Christmas Messages with Joyful Tidings


One of just a few clean & simple Christmas cards for some very lucky people.  I designed this card more than a month ago and I only made 20 of them.  All my Christmas will be quick and easy for you to recreate. 

As a matter of fact, they were all cut and stamped while I was deployed.  They were all ready to go and I carried them in my backpack because I thought I would stamp on my way home… on the plane.

Then a week before my homecoming, I hurt my lower back and was hardly able to move, much less enjoy some stamping while flying the friendly skies.

After reintegrating with family, friends, work, and starting my recovery with physical therapy… I put all 20 cards together.  They are now ready to be written in and put in the mail.


There is so much going on in preparation for the new year… take a look at what already here now and get ready ahead of time…. click here now!

My questions to you today is… have you finished making your Christmas cards?  I can't wait to read your comments.

Polka Dot Birthday


I love my little masculine birthday card and the Cherry Cobbler added a perfect accent to the Very Vanilla with the Birthday Basics designer series paper and the Label Love clear mount stamp set (on Sale Right Now!)

You have got to admit that the Artisan Label punch (on Sale Right Now!) has a very masculine look to it too!  C'mon admit it… it's a must have!  LOL.  Although, using basic gray ink simply seems to add a more bold flavor to the stamp, don't you think?


Yes, this card was pre-made before sending my supplies home about a month ago and now that I'm home reconnecting with family is the very best thing in the world.  So much so that it's just a little bit overwhelming.

Yet the emotions are sweet with a morsel sense of peace and quiet.  Not sure if it makes sense to you and it's a tiny bit difficult to explain, but trying to re-adjust to a 13-hour time difference is not easy.

In the meantime, there is a box of Stampin' Up! goodies waiting for me in my craft room… my mind often wonders and I find myself daydreaming of the cute gifts I'm making my co-workers for Christmas… LOL.
