Another In(k)spire Me Card!


Hi peeps!  Happy Friday!  I was so inspired by the sketch at Inkspire Me (do you know that if you try to put a parentheses around a “k”, you get this:  Red lips???  So weird!  Cute, but weird!) that I decided to use it again for a Christmas card.  Here ya go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Holly Jolly Greetings Christmas Stampin Up

And in case you forgot what the sketch looked like, here it is:

This go-round, I used Merry Moments DSP along with Home for Christmas (music) and diecut a big circle of Very Vanilla on which to stamp that pretty snowflake from Holly Jolly Greetings in Soft Sky ink.  I added the sentiment in Lost Lagoon and Basic Black, then diecut the sleigh and horse using the Sleigh Ride edgelits, from another circle of Lost Lagoon:


Added some glitter and bling, or “bedazzle”, as my friend Anna calls it, and stamped the inside like this:


My trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig really comes in handy with this set!  My final touch was a bit of shabby Soft Sky seam binding, tied with silver ribbon, and adhered with a glue dot!  Thanks for visiting today!

AJ hadn’t had a bath in a while, so we needed to take care of that….”I’m a good mommy, aren’t I, Grammy?”  Oh yes!


Enjoy the day!


  1. What a beautiful card LeAnne, love the colors!! Looks like AJ is getting a good scrubbing!!

  2. Oh wow, what a gorgeous card. I was going to say how much I love the glittery snow, then I saw that you had actually done a close up shot of looks beautiful. The strip of musical notes DP is great here and I love seeing your scrunchy ribbon/bow making an appearance;)
    Cassidy sure is a good mommy.

  3. what a sweet Christmas card LeAnne ~ love that sleigh in your circled punch ~ CASing this my friend ~ LOVE LOVE LOVE...and Cassidy is very meticulous in her bathing technique :-) ~ have a lovely weekend ((hugs))

  4. Love your card! Always enjoy the adventures of Cassidy too.

  5. I love this, LeAnne. The sheet music and that big bow and then the center circle with the snowflake stamped behind your scene…you thought of everything on this one! :)

  6. Oh LeAnne this is absolutely gorgeous! I love every little thing about it, where to begin? I think this is the most beautiful use of those edgelits I've seen, especially with the bit of glitter, and the music notes and scrunchy bow are perfect. A real stunner!!!

  7. What a lovely, detail-rich card! I didn't know about the parentheses leading to a kiss. ;-) But I am using Wordpress and maybe it is different there? Thank you so much for joining us at Inkspire me. Marion
