O Christmas Tree
I've been in the mood to color lately, and this Impression Obsession Christmas tree from the Tree & Poinsettias Clear Stamp Set was calling my name. I cut my Top Note white piece first, then stamped the image and used my Prismacolor pencils, a little Gamsol, and blending stumps to color it. The snowflake centers are topped with Kaiser Craft rhinestones. The patterned papers are from K&Co mat pads (the red is from Christmas Cheer and the blue is from Peppermint Twist). The sentiment is also from the Tree & Poinsettias set. I'm really liking this sweet, simple card. No distressing, no sponging, no stitching, no ribbon ... and I'm feeling just fine :)
I'm keeping this post sweet and simple today, too. I was already up to my eyeballs in tomatoes and green beans even before I picked up a bushel of apples at the market yesterday. I'll be the happy little homemaker the rest of the week canning the green beans and tomatoes (maybe some salsa, too) and making sauce from all the apples. Can't wait for that first fresh, steaming hot spoonful - YUM!
So glad you stopped by!
