Well I think I have enough cards done for this year but have a couple extras just incase I forgot someone. So why not get a head start on next year :)
I am sharing today's card with the Time out challenge blog they have a photo for inspiration, I loved the white vase with berries in it. I also liked the headboard with lights, I first stamped the stars across the top and stamped two berry branches directly on the background. I then embossed the whole background with my embossing folder. I did not have a pitcher, my hubby came in my craft room right when I was starting to try and draw one, he said do you want me to draw one for you, I said sure. I cut out the one he drew on scrap paper then took my light box and copied it onto some white cardstock, when cutting the handle I cut a little close in places but thought it looked ok. I took a marker and gave it a little color around the edges, it just blended into my background too much. I also stamped and fussy cut 3 of the berry branches to give it a touch of dimension, as well as the using foam tape on the pitcher.
Here is the inspiration photo
I am also sharing with Retro Rubber Challenge
Merry Christmas, I used the berries and Merry! My stamps are over 2 years old, I purchased them on HSN.
- Vase drawn by my hubby, I fussy cut and colored with marker
- Cuttlebug - Swiss Dot embossing folder
- Diamond press stamps - Christmas collection (stars, berries and partial sentiment)
- Delicata - Golden glitz ink for the starts
I wanted the Merry on the Pitcher instead of the cup, like in the photo and all my Merry's had Christmas with them so I took a Spectrum Aqua pen and inked my stamp with that and stamped it onto the vase.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
