Yes... this is another Christmas card. I wasn't completely satisfied with my first creation for the Moxie Fab Stretch Your Holiday Style: Stamping Challenge, so here is my second try...For this card I used very traditional colors, but... the stamps used (except for the sentiment) were not your usual Christmas stamps. The leaves and flower are from the PTI Beautiful Bloom set and the polka dot flower center is from PTI Polka Dot Basics II. The leaves were randomly stamped with Versamark. The flower (or my version of a Poinsettia) was stamped twice then cut out and layered with dimensional adhesive. To give the flower some extra dimension, I curled the bottom flower leaves (with a pencil) down and the top layer up. Then added a touch of red glitter.
I'm sure you all are ready for the Labor Day weekend, got any big plans? We are looking to get more painting done, this time on the outside of our house. Well, what ever you have planned, I hope you have a great time this weekend.
One last thing (I'm sure you all are aware) but I just wanted to give you a link to an exciting and innovative new venture that Ashley Cannon Newell, her husband McArthur, Sarah Martina Parker and Charlene Austin are jumping into. It's called Embellish Magazine and it's an eco-friedly, challenge-based online publication for you to get involved in and potentially get published in! So stop by and check it out!
Thanks for stopping by today!
