I sooo wish I didn't have to finish with Holiday cards soon... just like last year, I already have more than enough to send to my family and friends, but those gorgeous designs just keep popping in my hands! I can't seem to stop...
This morning I had a fun time, designing some simple cards that will be great for mailing - flat and light. I sure do like piling up stuff, but they're a nightmare to send... :)
Here we go!
For the first card below, I knew I wanted to use the negative die cutting for he ornaments. I used the designs from The Craft's Meow's Vintage Ornaments, and the sentiment from Vintage Snowflakes. LOVE these sets :)
I wanted to add some simple silhouette holly leaves, at the end of the "cords", but I didn't have anything suitable. Gasp! You would think that in a reasonable stash of stamps, one would be able to dig out some "hollies"... I ended up using these fun little sprigs from TSG's new Holly Jolly set, and coloured the berries with a red Copic.
Supplies: cardstock: Canson (pink, white), stamps: The Craft's Meow (Vintage Snowflakes, Vintage Ornaments), There She Goes (Holly Jolly); ink: Versa Magic (Turquoise Gem), Memento (Bamboo Leaves), Fresh Ink (Provincial Gray); Nestabilities Circles; red Copic marker
My inspiration comes from this fabulous Tuesday Trigger: Deck The Halls
Another card, this time inspired by the Get Inspired by Fashion Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (inspiration below the card). I took the colours from the photo, and because I don't have the suitable houndstooth stamp, I once again reached for my beloved Nordic Winter set from Waltzingmouse Stamps... can you tell I'm positively CRAZY about it??
The branch is from another favvie of mine, Festive Foliage, and the sentiment comes from Say It Loud - Winter Holiday.
Supplies: cardstock: white, PTI (Spring Moss), Canson (grey); stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps (Nordic Winter, Festive Foliage, Say It Loud - Winter Holiday); ink: Fresh Ink (Pear, Provincial Gray), ColorBox (Hunter Green), Versafine (Onyx Black); black pen; corner rounder: EK Success
Here's the Moxie Fab inspiration :)
I'll pop in later today, with my La La Land card, and hopefully once more, with a new TSG challenge... until then, thanks for looking! xo
