Last summer at convention, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators were allowed to purchase a few items from the Holiday Catalog. (One of the lovely perks of being a demo!) I was a good girl and only purchased a handful of things, one of them being this pretty ornament stamp called Christmas Bauble. It's a great one to pull out when you want to do some coloring, but I realized today that it's good with minimal coloring, too. Good for when you haven't had enough coffee and can't control your hands…lol.
Here's the card base with a bit of layering and Gold Baker's twine for fun.
Card Base: Sahara Sand 4-1/4" x 5 1/2" finished card size
Layer 1: Blackberry Bliss 4" x 5-1/4"
Moonlight DSP: 2 pieces measuring 1-3/4" 2-7/8" (side by side), one piece 3-3/4" x 2-7/8" along the bottom
Next, I added a handcut Christmas Bauble over a die cut of our Window Frame. Notice that I did not color in the berries yet since I decided to use a wet embellishment that would require some drying time.
Now… just a few minutes adding color and embellishments and we have:
Different, eh? I really should work on creating some "quick and easy" cards since we're already in to December. But it's more fun to just sit and create. How about you? Do you like to make stacks of cards or just play - one at a time?
