Merry Little Christmas

Hope you all had a Haunting Halloween. We don't get any trick or treaters where I live, but I still buy candy, just in case. Now, I can't seem to keep my hands out of the candy basket! I guess I need to get busy stamping to keep my hands busy and my mind off of the chocolate.

Here is another card from my Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack. For this one I used the Builder Wheels, Little Cardinals & Little Christmas. The Builder Wheels are so much fun because you can design your own wheel. Using the Jumbo Handle and 2 or 3 of the Builder Wheels you can create just the look you want. You can also customize your colors by using the Jumbo Uninked Cartridge, or for more color you can use the Uninked Triple Cell Cartridge. These are designed so you can use 3 different colors at one time. I used a Jumbo Cartridge and my Garden Green Classic Ink Refill to ink it up. I wheeled the image on a whole sheet of Whisper White Cardstock, and then cut it into strips the size I needed.

The snowflake printed paper is one of the cute designs from the Candy Cane Christmas DSP. The background is Baja Breeze, run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder. The embossing folders are an easy way to add dimension to any project. I added a strip of Always Artichoke Seam Binding, punched out one of the cardinals with the 1" Circle Punch and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I wanted to add just a touch of color, so I used my Blender Pen with Poppy Parade, Real Red & Garden Green Classic Ink to color the little cardinal.

My next class is coming up in a couple of weeks, November 14. We will be decorating the Mini Lunch Sacks from the Holiday Mini Catalog. We'll be making a Scarecrow, Turkey, Santa & a Snowman. Are you hosting a Holiday Event, or just want to take a Thank You to your hostess? Then you won't want to miss this class. Contact me to sign up today!

Thanks for checking in!
