Then I was excited to finish the card below which I started last night. I used stamps just received from Hero Arts' new Holiday and Stamp Your Story catalog. So many great stamps but I restricted myself to just a few (after all ScrapFest is only 2 weeks away so I need to save my shopping $$). Couldn't resist the Canvas Background CG621 and Joy Burst K5852 along with some clear sets I haven't opened yet. Oh, and a fall leaf too... did I say I was trying to save $$??
Some non-traditional colors for Christmas but I was playing around with some Copic markers, coloring a few quilt images that Heather Maria sent me. (Sorry, Heather - didn't finish that card yet...). Those colors found their way onto the JOY image and I pulled them into the card base (Hero Arts) and patterned paper (Doodlebug) too. I covered the JOY word with Rock Candy Distress Stickles - what a nice crystally shine they give! With that shine, I left off any other bling. Was excited to get this small start on my Christmas cards - how about you, do you have any done yet?
Happy crafting and thanks for visiting!!
