The drought is sort of over ...

Nothing too exciting, but got to use the hostess set Country Morning.

Blue Christmas

The only stamping that will be happening soon will be quick stamping.  This card is a case of a couple that I've seen online.  Very easy!  Punch a "moon" out of a large post-it and leave the moon piece on the card while you sponge over it with various blue inks.  Then swap the moon piece out, and put down the big post-it piece with the missing "moon" and sponge the moon in a light yellow.  Stamp your trees and Santa scene, add some layered mats, and you're done!

Wandering Words stamp set, a 1-1/4" circle punch and post-it, Lovely as a Tree stamps, sponges and a post-it note mask.

Christmas Cardinal - SAS card #3

Here is Stamp-a-Stack card offering #3.  The cardinal is colored in with markers after being stamped in black Stazon ink on shimmery white cardstock.  I wouldn't normally have put black on a Christmas card, but it seemed like the best way to tie in the black on the bird, and in the end, I liked how it turned out!

Stamp the Old Olive layer using the branch silhouette stamp, add a little ribbon for some more festive cheer, and you're done!  To give the branches more dimension, just follow the hatching/shading lines that the stamp's artist already included, coloring them in with a darker shade of green than the rest of the branches/leaves.  The only other thing I might add is some Crystal Effects to the berries - since everything papercrafted can benefit from Crystal Effects!  :)

Punch happy - SAS card two

This is the quickie card mentioned yesterday.  This card uses the set Christmas Punch.
It's so easy that there's not much to say about this card. :) A stamped background, and a main image stamped and punched, some ribbon and matting and it's done!

Thanks for stopping in!

Updated 10/28/09 with another look at this card in blue
