S.I.P. #79 – anything but Christmas

I am getting a head start on doing more card challenges in 2017 with the latest Stamp Ink Paper challenge #79 – ANYTHING BUT CHRISTMAS!


I admit it was fun to get away from the seasonal cards. I haven’t really been creating since I finished making for that craft fair at the beginning of December and I needed to get back in to the swing of things.


I used a Sakura clear sparkle Gelly Roll to get iridescent wings:


On the inside: “Don’t worry, bee happy!” and “Bugs and kisses” tee hee

The card is for a birthday in a couple of weeks. I didn’t want to leave it until last minute because it has to be mailed.

One challenge down, two more to go for this week I hope ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Happy New Year!!! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I forgot to mention in the post that the sentiment stamps are from a Jillibean Soup set. I might try to break them out for Valentine’s cards too ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I agree. Christmas cards always look so beautiful and elaborate to me that the non Christmas ones are almost like opening the window for some fresh air ๐Ÿ™‚

        Time to crack open that window and start breaking out the spring flowers now! (even though spring is still a very, very long way off xD)


      2. I joked about opening the window today. It was sunny but below freezing with snow still on the ground, so I decided not to. Winter says, “No…”
