You’re the best

Happy Sunday-Funday Evening, cardmakers and crafters!!! Ok……. It’s October, which means, my world becomes crazy until after the first of the year. Anyone else with this last quarter dilemma?? My daughters have November Harvest Horse shows coming up and there are many people who we give gratuities to during this month. It is so much more fun to hand people a fun envelope with some $$ inside. So, here’s my first set of creations. Juicy Christians Studio is responsible for the inspiration for this envelope; the envelopes she creates are AMAZING!!

Here’s the recipe: Start with some watercolor paper. It’s an envelope; please leave the expensive stuff for the card or artwork. I used watercolor paper that remains in my stash from my girls first grade class. LOL!! Cut to 7 7/8 x 7 7/8 inches and make the first score at 2 3/4 inches (We Are Memory Keepers Envelope Score board). Then cover with the burgundy acrylic paint and allow to dry. Next up.. a Tim Holtz Distress Paint technique using Walnut Stain (view the technique at 1hour 38minutes). Once dry, come back with Distressed Oxide Festive Berries and the stencil shown to add more layers of inky goodness. My pracing pony is cut by Cricut. My sentiment is my own using Lawn Fawn’s Claire’s ABCs and stamped with Versafine Clair Medieval Blue. The prize ribbon is a Hero Arts layered stamp, using Versafine Clair Medieval Blue and Nocturn. Stampersanonymous provides the pony express stamp in the upper right hand corner. The inside of the envelope is painted with Distress Paint Prize Ribbon. Everything is then set with a light coverage of Mod Podge spray. -whew-

Enjoy the Ride!
