Our theme this month is Christmas! I whipped up a quick card using the new Vintage Ornaments stamp set released this month. The patterned paper is by Crate Paper on a Kraft cardstock base. I stamped the background panel with a wee star from the Compliments of the Season stamp set in Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink. I used the same ink to sponge around the edge of the "pink" panel (cut with a Spellbinders Labels Eight die) and ornament die cut, and to stamp the word "Joy."
For the ornament, I used my Juniper Adirondack Acrylic Paint dabber to apply paint to the stamp...brushing it across the stamp to give it texture...before cutting it out with the coordinating Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments die. A bit of twine for the bow, and voila!
The sketch is FTL116 from Clean and Simple Stamping.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Now on you go to enjoy the rest of the waltz!
