Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving....it's important to give thanks for all the blessings in our life. It's not all about shopping and Black Friday deals ya know! ;)
But now I guess we are officially in the Christmas season....my house is all decorated inside and out, so I've been taking a break from cards. But I made one tonight for the Simon says Stamp Monday Challenge and it literally took 10 minutes. I love cards like that! I had the brown triangles as part of a birthday card kit and they were extra pieces. I turned them upside down and saw trees! So I created a card with non traditional colors (well, I used green, but you know what I mean). The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions, they seriously have ADORABLE stamps and dies!
I stamped it with brown Versafine ink and clear embossed, then die cut it with a sizzix shape die.
For the background on the green, I stamped a woodgrain background stamp with Versamark and clear embossed, but the textured nature of the paper really didn't stamp well, but I still went with it.
Then for my 'trees', I cut trunks out of scrap cardstock, then added some red and green gems. And on the side, a strip of gold and white washi tape. Quick and easy.
I also got a new phone this weekend (iphone 6 baby!!), so I'll be able to do videos again. I haven't done one in a while because my iphone 5 was filled up and I didn't have enough memory. I'll work on a video this week!
Have a good night! :)
