A CASE of Jill Foster

Hidey ho....

Well, I just couldn't stand it.!!!

I saw the card below designed by Jill Foster on the Penny Black Facebook page and absolutely fell in love with the color combo (I call her the Queen of Color)....so I had to make something like it.

I have heard that imitating someone is a form of flattery...thanks Miss Jill for the inspiration!
(Sure hope I flattered her)  :)

Not your typical Holiday colors.. yet it makes a gorgeous card!

  • Main panel of card front is stamped using Festive Florals, then inked with Memento Peanut Brittle and Toffee Crunch with a bit of gesso added.
  • The panel with the unusual Poinsettias was inked with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers. Flicked plain water to achieve watercolor looking spots. The rest of this panel was inked with Memento Sweet Plum and Grape Jelly.
  • Poinsettia was stamped with Grape Jelly. A few flicks from a paintbrush with Aqua paint. Wrapped twine and tied bow. Adhere to card front with foam adhesive.
  • Stamped and inked a scrap of card stock for the Aqua panel at the bottom using the snowflakes from the Holiday Snippets set and a thin strip of Dark Purple card stock.
  • Tiny tag was inked then heat embossed the sentiment.

The colors in this one are amazing. Today would be a good day for a visit if you are weary of heat .. it is in the 40's this morning!! Big hugs!
