So here is what I made today:


Cardstock by BazzillBasics Paper®
VersaColor™ Bamboo Ink by Tsukineko®
Chameleon™ Markers (Crimson Red, Warm Sunset, Grass Green, Spring Meadow, Bisque, Cool Gray, Summer Sun, Aqua Marine, Bubble Gum)
Sharp Scissors
Paper Trimmer
Zig 2-Way Glue Pen by Kuretake®
5" Machine and Adhesive by Xyron®
Scotch® 1/2" Adhesive Tape by 3M® 


  1. Cut the card base to 5 1/4" by 9 1/4" and fold on top.
  2. Cut the teal card stock to 5 1/4" by 4 5/8" and adhere to the front of the card base.
  3. Stamp your choice of words from the Joyful Phrases on the Mixed Media Paper.  I placed a couple of phrases on the stamping block at a time, and randomly stamped them across the paper, not concerned with overlapping and running off the page.  Use the Bamboo VersaMagic for this.
  4. Trim the stamped image to the size you want.
  5. Use the Bamboo VersaMagic to distress the edges of the card stock
  6. Create a slightly larger rectangle from burgundy card stock and adhere the Joyful Phrase image to it.
  7. Adhere the burgundy rectangle to the teal card stock on the base.
  8. Stamp the Joyful Noise Image with Memento Tuxedo Black on the Mixed Media Paper.
  9. Color the Joyful Noise image with the Chameleon Markers.
  10. Trim closely around the Joyful Noise image.
  11. Run the Joyful Noise image through the Xyron Machine and attach to the Joyful Phrases layer.  Overlap a little of the holly on the mats.
  12. Use the glue pen to attach clear glitter over the coloring on the mouse wings and gold micro glitter to his halo.
Here are the links to all of the rest of the designers today.  Don't forget to leave comments on all of them!
