Fingerprint stamping

Today I am sharing my last challenge that I did with my cardmaking group, and this one was stamping using your fingertips.  Have you seen those stamps that use fingertip prints and they have little faces on them, I can't for the life of me remember the name of the company that has them but I am just not that creative, so I went with making a wreath and flowers with my fingerprints :)  I fussy cut around them after stamping.

I think this is the first time since I have been making cards that I have ever had a Christmas card done this early on in the year, YAH for me!!

Distress inks -- Mowed lawn and Fired brick for stamping
Cuttlebug -- D'vine Swirl embossing folder, went over the raised areas with silver ink
Stamps of life -- minis4circles stamp set
Taylored Expression -- Designer mini tags die
DMC -- floss
Gems -- flower centers

It was fun to do these challenges, I usually stay inside my comfort zone.

We are enjoying some great spring time temps and it has been so nice to be able to walk outside again. Our snow is almost all melted, mainly only where it was piled up when shoveling is left.  I am so excited to see flowering trees soon, that always lifts my spirits, all seasons are blessings from God I know, but spring time is bringing all things new and fresh back to life, such a wonderful uplifting Season!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! Have a wonderful week!

Your card is not only beautiful, but the technique you used looks like so much fun! I will have to make some cards with my son as I know he would enjoy doing the fingerpring stamping.

Happy Monday! Hugs!

It is so nice for spring to finally be here, isn't it?! And to think it will be Christmas again before we know it (oops, I shouldn't remind you! This is one time of year I'm *not* dreaming of a white Christmas). Sounds like you're getting ready for it pretty early though!
