I have done a wee bit of zooming around the stamp companies blogs, and looking at their designers' cards. SOOO inspiring. Couldn't I ever give the Mastercard a thrashing.............BUT.............I am restraining myself big time. So many fabulous new stamp and die sets, soooooo many. I see Papertrey Ink has a gorgeous new set on the horizon, maybe a splurge here.
So, to the challenge. I have been reacquainting myself with my stamps and dies......and don't laugh, ..........remembering how to use them. I decided on an angel for my card so chose Papertrey Ink's 'Love Lives Here Holiday' set (die and stamp). It has so many wonderful pieces to it, an angel, a mitten, a stocking, two Christmas trees, greenery, and lots of wonderful sentiments and biddy bits.
This is what I ended up with. It did go through a few changes before it got to this stage. I tried for something cleaner but I can't resist the urge to layer.
I am so enjoying the new position of my little craft room. Nothing flash, but it does look out to the garden and the bird bath. I just love watching the birds have their daily splash.
I am also enjoying stamping again, gosh I had forgotten how therapeutic it is......is that just me?
Unfortunately, I can't spend too much time in here, work to do.
Until next time. Happy creating.
