Peace & Love


I had several days off this week, so I got some extra stamping time. Not as much as I wanted, though!
I used Joyous Holiday, Get In Line, and Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles (all from Whimsy) for this Christmas card.
Thanks for stopping by!

My card for today shows Grunge Snowflakes.
 
 
I stamped a kraft card base with the cheesecloth block from Distressed Backgrounds.  On the main panel, I white-embossed the Christmas tree, then watercolored some light blue over it.  When it was dry, I lightly stamped some text background over it.  I layered it on a dark purple panel, and then embossed the sentiment on the same purple paper and adhered them on the main panel.  I added some silver twine at the end.

Today I am showing you Key To Love with Cardbuilder Hearts of Love:
 
 
I started by cutting out the large panel of the new Cardbuilder die set.  I then layered on some text background (Basic Backgrounds and Borders 1) in light gray ink.  I then used several stamps from Key to Love in two colors of pink to attempt to make a collage.  I sponged the edges of the panel with the same light gray ink, and adhered it on a card base.  I added some gold sequins last.
 
Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow for the last day of the November Whimsy Release.
