Those of you who follow my blog know about my recent heartache - my youngest son's family are in the process of moving 3000 miles away, to Maryland. They left today. And I already miss my two grandsons (fortunately I still have one more in California, but he lives 400 miles away in San Diego).
Here are two photos from today's journey:
But I digress...
I planned some Christmas Card classes over the past 2 months. The intent was to show the versatility of one stamp set with one or two packs of Designer Series Paper. Last month I had planned to use Your Presents with my favoritest (is that a word?) vellum of all time--Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum along with the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack. So I worked at a feverish pace to create four beautiful cards, ordered the supplies and then...life got in the way. I ended up cancelling the class and was left with (in my humble opinion) four very pretty cards that no one will see.
I decided it was time to get over my pain of squashed creativity and feature my work on my blog. So here is the first of 4 that I'll show over the next few days.
Using the stamp set, I stamped "joy" in Cherry Cobbler Ink and two rows of the Christmas trees in Mossy Meadow (stamped off once). This was punched using my 2-1/2" Circle Punch and then I cut a slightly larger circle with my Circle Framelits. I hand cut the little bobbly thing that holds the ornaments (what IS this thing called, anyway?) and then I added a bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.
I used the Banner Triple Punch to make a DSP and a Mossy Meadow banner, and the top layer is some really sparkly 3/8" Glitter Ribbon. (This is MUCH prettier in real life--just couldn't quite get a good photo).
I finished with two Home for Christmas Enamel Dots.
Come back tomorrow to see how I used this stamp set in a completely different way
