Hope you are all well. It was back to work today after a lovely bank holiday weekend. This working lark really does get in the way of my crafting time lol.
Only four more days and my gorgeous daughter will be home from university. This year has been a work placement year for her so she has not had a full summer holiday as usual. She finishes her work placement on Friday and then is back home for a couple of weeks before she starts her final year. Looking forward to having her home but not so sure about the mess. She is quite neat and tidy when away from home but I think she gets a bit lazy when she is at home. Obviously knows that Mummy will clear up after her lol. Must get her better trained.
Anyway, I did get a card made tonight when I finished work. When I was at Sir Stampalot yesterday I bought a couple of christmas stamps.
This christmas tree stamp from Woodware really lends itself to paper piecing, which is exactly what I did with it. I stamped the image onto white card then several times onto patterned paper. The pieces were then cut out and stuck onto the white image. I added some glitter to the heart on the base and for the holly berries. I mounted the christmas tree image onto some white card that I embossed with a snowflake folder. This was then matted onto red glitter paper. Some cut out corners and gems finished the card.
I really like the way this turned out and it was really quick to do. In fact I made another one using green glitter paper.
I think this would look good in other colour combinations too. Might try a blue and white one next.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Red and Green
Creative Card Crew - Christmas
Crafty Sentiments - Lets sparkle
Thanks for popping by. Take care.
