Okay, not really, but it is Christmas in my stamp room. I recently joined a challenge at Stampin’ Addicts to complete some of my Christmas cards each month. I’m really enjoying getting these done. It’s so nice to be working on them when I’m not under pressure to get them done.
First up, May’s cards. . .
Stamps: Christmas Classics (retiring in June!)
Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Kraft
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso, Real Red
Accessories: 1 1/4 old olive striped grosgrain ribbon, tulips embossing folder, square lattice embossing folder.
And here’s June’s cards. . .
Stamps: Holiday Lineup
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Whisper White
Ink: Watercolor pencils. pastels, chocolate chip
Accessories: 1/4 Rose Red Grosgrain.
Both of these cards were made using paper I had previously cut and put aside for Christmas cards, but somehow never completed. I hope I’m not the only one that gets all excited planning a project and then puts it aside unfinished. Time to complete this project: 2 years. However, I’m sure they can be completed in 1 sitting – you can feel free to omit the “aging” process.
