Hello Everyone! I am suffering from too much fun this weekend syndrome! lol We had our monthly Game Night at our house with 18 people over for dinner and games, then Sunday I had my Stamp Class I teach each month at my house. It was LOTS of fun, however, I am finding I don't bounce back as quickly now that I am in my 40's! 

Before I tell you about this card, I want to tell you about this new FABULOUS CLEANER I found over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! It is called BEST CLEANER EVER. I want you to know after using it myself, it really is!!! Check out this video here about all that it does!

Here is my testimony - I had SEVERAL blocks with caked and layered on Staz On Ink. I misted a small amount on my blocks and took a rag and it wiped away the Staz On. The one block with A LOT of Staz On, on it, took a little elbow grease and another napkin to clean only because the other one had too much ink on it from cleaning it off. I had the Stampabilities Acrylic Blocks with the guide lines on it and the BEST CLEANER EVER wiped those lines off!

I have a stain on my sweat shirt from Staz On ink from awhile ago. I think I will try that on this as well and take pictures!!! 

Todays card uses the Technique Junkie Newsletter technique from the February/ March 2012 issue called the Nested Nesties. I started by using the Fleur De Lis Spellbinder Die and the Nestabilities Classic Large Circles Die embedded in the center. The background paper is from Basic Grey and is the Wassail line from 2 years ago. Susana has a FABULOUS selection of great papers in her store - you can check them out HERE.

I stamped this cute FANCY image from the Odds and Ends Sampler by Elisabeth Bell available only at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design in Memento Black Ink and White Card stock. I colored  FANCY with Copic Markers - Skin E00, E11, R20, E000, Clothes/ Hat - E43, E44, E47, R85, YG67 Hair - E08, YR000, YR14, E31

I added some Rose ribbon to the panel  along the bottom and adhered Dew Drops to draw attention to the frame.

The card stock I used was Regal Rose (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") and Vanilla (4" x 5 1/4"). I used the Martha Stewart punch along the bottom portion of the Wassail paper.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!Chrissy D

Hi Chris~

You have the BEST stamps! I love this one! I love the way you colored her! Her outfit is adorable! Check out those bell bottoms! And, that giant die cut with the pink pearls on it are fabulous!

Speaking of your fabulous stamps...will you please check and see where the heart shaped stamp is that has beautiful flowers on it? I really want to get one! I love this one, also. She looks like she is so fun to color her. Great card, Chris.

He IS Able!
