Yeah, I got in some play time and what better way right now then with some Christmas cards.
I have had this embossing folder for a while and found this to be a great time to pull it out. I used The Play Date Cafe color combination on it.
The sentiment is from a stamp set by WOW! I embossed it with silver embossing powder.Here is The Play Date Cafe combo.
Next up, I wanted to use the color combination at Colour Q. I used the card sketch at Clean & Simple for my inspiration. I made sure to say "for my inspiration" because it might not really look like the sketch to you, but it really was my starting off place.
When I saw this snowflake stamp set, I knew I needed it ASAP. It is from The Craft's Meow. Are the colors just yummy!!!Here is the Colour Q combo.
This is the Clean & Simple sketch.
I also put together this little tag the other day. I had recently watched Tim Holtz doing some demo's at a stamp convention and I came home to try a few of the technques he showed. I picked up the Seedless Preserves Distress Stain and needed to use that. The ornament is from Hero Arts. I didn't have any branch stamps so I used the antlers to one of the little reindeer stamps! This does fit in with the Simon Stays Stamp and Show challenge.
For a couple fun photos...
We had rain the other day (and we even have some this weekend too). This is just unusual for us so we had to go out and find some puddles. I used my Hipstamatic camera and the lens I used turned out this bizarre photo of duplicate pics of my grandson as he was running.
This guy loves puddles!
