I has so much fun with the Christmas Punch set and the color challenge from Tuesday that I played with a few scraps and put them into a card for you today! Here's the status ~ the home improvements are still going on - picture three crews here today - the good news is that they are wrapping things up!
Now picture me very early in the morning at my craft table in my PJ's, dabbing away with my stipple brush. If ever I needed some stamping therapy, this is it, LOL! Truly, I felt like a kid playing! Enough rambling, here's today's card.
A bit more info~I LOVE the way this image can be punched with the square punch and then matted perfectly with the scallop punch to look just like a postage stamp! This set is the Best!
- I stippled the Bravo Burgundy card stock in Bravo Burgundy ink to add a texture that's almost similar to felt, I love it!
- I randomly stamped the snowflake image from the Christmas Punch set on top of the stippling. This made it so easy to create my own background pattern like designer paper.
- The Santa image was sponged lightly with Close to Cocoa ink. I prefer to keep my cards focused on the real meaning of Christmas, but couldn't resist playing with this cute stamp.
- Tool of the day? The needle for threading the taffeta ribbon through the button. I tied linen thread through the small button, and wrapped an extra strand behind. Didn't want to throw that bit away!
I hear there is BIG news from Stampin' Up! and I'm off to check it out! I'll be back later today with a special announcement of my own. Happy creating with your stamps, paper, and ink!
