Good grief! Three cards in one week from me (AND I have another one ready to post tomorrow), I must be feeling better lol. Not quite …. but all the tests are done and now I am just waiting for a call back from the cardiologist. Things are creeping along very slowly.
I’m off work this week and next and was whiling away the hours on Pinterest and kinda got inspired to play yesterday. This is what I came up with using the sublime new Christmas Chalkboards 1 sentiment stamps designed by Simonne Clay. Shoo, that girl is ace at sentiments.
I used some Wild Orchid Crafts goodies to embellish. See, even though (for me) this is a trendy card I still managed to frou-frou it up HA! I seperated the poinsettia and misted with pearl spray, allowed to dry and then reassembled and finished it off with one of these delish flatback pearls in a diamond circle. I love that the charcoal grey pops off the white flower and also ties in with the chalkboard sentiment. I heat embossed a wooden reindeer, added a couple of bells and a small metal corner and job done. I think this set will be getting heaps of use this year.
These stamps make for really quick and easy cards, that’s for sure. I stamped the sentiment onto black card using Versamark ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder and layered it up. The Papermania papers are from last year, or was it the year before? All I know is a bought quite a few packs ….. I love red and white for Christmas.
