Finally feeling a little better today. I gave my massive head cold to my husband, though. He's not too happy right now! We'll be staying in this New Year's Eve. I don't like to be out on the roads anyway. Be safe everyone!
Stamping 411 has a fun sketch this week! Hope you try it out! Here is my version.
I pulled out a set I haven't used in a while called Season of Friendship and used a couple new products that will be available in the Occasions Mini! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Love Impressions Specialty Designer Paper. Great colors of Real Red, Basic Gray and Pink Pirouette! I cut a strip for the background and layered it on Real Red cardstock. Along the top, I used the Eyelet Border Punch. I adhered it to a base card of Basic Gray cardstock.
To pick up the Basic Gray, I stamped the trunk of the Season of Friendship stamp in Basic Gray and stamped on Whisper White. I stamped several leaves in Pear Pizzazz on scrap Whisper White and cut them out and applied to several of the branches. I punched several Small Hearts from the fun Glimmer Paper (I hope they carry this is MANY more colors in the new catalog!), then placed them on the branches, too. Finally, I stamped Love from Fabulous Phrases in Basic Gray and punched with the Small Jewelry Tag and added it to the card with a Real Red Mini Brad.
I LOVE how this turned out! Make sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators did this week and play along with the sketch!
