Over the past few weeks I've been extremely lucky to have won a few stamp sets and been able to afford to buy some things for myself. So I've been surrounded my new goodies with no time to play. But........today I had the afternoon free, and while I caught up on American Horror Story episodes, I had a play date with my new stamps.
It was so much fun and I came up with a few ideas and even managed to finish this card. So thought I better post it straight away so you know I'm still making them:
These stamps are part of the new release from Neat and Tangled 'Merry Little Christmas'. I also included a few of the bigger parcels from Neat and Tangled 'Santa's Ride'. I won both of these stamp sets and managed to purchase another. It was such a dreary day today, I wanted to try and make something colourful and fun. So after stamping these all on white CS, I used my Ziggies to colour them in.
It then came to the part where I wish I could have purchased the matching dies because cutting out the Xmas tree was a little fiddly but 'fiddly' and I go back a long way, so just took my time. I went around the edges of all of these with a black marker and then arranged on the card front with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the 'Merry Little Christmas' set too, just love that font!
I'm linking this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Christmas'.
So, how did I feel after finishing this card??? So happy and can feel my Mojo slowly creeping back in. And thank goodness because I'm so far behind with my Xmas card making and need so many to send to all my amazing bloggie friends. Just need to find a little time each day to create. How hard could that be, right????
And thank you so much to Danielle at Neat and Tangled for her generosity. Crafters are the most amazing and generous people ever!!
