Season's Greeting

It is amazing what being with your crafty friends can do to your mojo.  I haven't seen or craft with my crafty friends since spring, and being with them for just a couple of hours really revved up my excitement toward paper crafting again.  I have been struggling for so long, and not really in the mood but after being with my friends, I couldn't wait to do something in my craft room despite it being late in the night.  Gotta love your crafty friends!  I have been wanting to use this Holly Berries stamp set from Simon Says Stamp by Clearly Besotted Stamps when I got it but life got in the way.  My crafty friends actually got to use it before me.  I know, I know.  Something I normally don't do but they saw it and I have a hard time saying no.  Anyway, I kept this card simple and love the way it came out.

I die cut a rectangle with Lil'Inker stitched rectangle die and stamped the branch with Distress inks.  I used water to draw out the colors and then stamped the pine cones.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black before adding it to the cardbase that I layered with red cardstock.  I finished the card with some glue and glitter on the branch and pine cone.  I loved the thickness of the glue to make it look like snow on the branch and pine cone.  Usually I avoid glitter, but I couldn't resist it in this case.

    1. Hi Monika! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such awesome comments. The Distress Ink pens are great for adding just a little color or darker color after watercoloring it out. Next to the Distress markers is a Wink of Stella brush and it is really great for adding some shimmer to your projects. It's beautiful under glossy accent.


Thanks for visiting. I love to hear from you!
