Hi all, I feel that I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off, getting ready for Christmas. Presents are bought and wrapped, tree and house is trimmed and decorated, candies and cookies made, cards sent out, and finally I can kick back and relax. Sort of!!! At least I didn't have to go near a mall or shopping center for the past couple of days, just the grocery store on my way home from work for last minute fixings, and man was it crazy.
Since Sunday, I have had some fun time creating some cards with some stamps and digital images that I did not have time to play around with earlier. Now, all I want to do is work on Christmas cards. Oh well, maybe I will get a head start on next year.
This first card uses an image by Whiff of Joy called "Wee and Reindeer". The image was stamped on Neenah paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. I used the "cracked glass" technique that I saw over on the Whiff of Joy tutorial blog. I really liked how it turned out. Since these cards were stress reliever cards, I did not keep track of all the details. If you are interested in any information, please contact me.
This second card also uses a Whiff of Joy image called, "Wee and Drum". Again the image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah cardstock, and colored with Copics. The papers I do know came from a collection that I bought right before Christmas last year called Festive and Frost by My Minds Eye. I know that I cased a sketch somewhere, but I do not recall from where.
This final card uses a digital image that I purchased from Mo's Digital Pencil, that I believe is called "Choir". I printed on Neenah cardstock, let set overnite, and colored with my Copics. The DP is from the Basic Grey collection "Figgy Pudding".
I do know that I used both Stampin' Up and Martha Stewart punches on these cards, the sentiments are Amy R. Stamps from CC Designs. A lot of the embellishments have belonged to me for a very looooong time, meaning that I have too much to remember where I purchased them all from.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Stamping New Year!
