Happy MLK Jr. Day! Like many in the US, I have today off for the holiday and found some time this morning to make a few more Christmas cards for 2015's stash. Woo Hoo - I'm now officially 2 months ahead of my planned schedule (4/month) by making three more cards.
First a duo using a fab design block stamp from Hero Arts called Winter Sparkle:
I just love all the fun words in this background stamp! I used a tree from an older clear set Tree-mendous to overstamp on the backgrounds. I also stamped the card on the left with a subtle Envelope Liner Background to give some texture. The card base on the right was stamped with Notebook Paper, a fun cling stamp also from Hero Arts. Papers are from Basic Grey's Evergreen line - love, love, love it!!
I'm building a collection of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies too. Just love so many of their winter and Christmas stamps and picked up a darling one this month - Winter Bunny, along with the matching die. Also used their Stitched Hillside Borders on this card - adore this set of 4 borders!! The tree and the sentiment are from Hero Arts - the Winter Fun comes from a build your own snowman clear set that I bought a few years ago. The tree is from a clear set called Happy Holidays.
Through a mention on a card in the Hero Arts Flickr group, I found a blog hosting weekly challenges for making Christmas cards: Merry Monday. What a great idea! I plan to visit them often to keep on track with my Christmas card goal. This week, the team challenges us to make a card with a house on it. So, you'll probably see me back later in the week with a house card. Until then, happy crafting and thanks for stopping!!
