Hi all and welcome to another challenge ! Christmas will be here is a few short days so our lovely teamie JOY has created this gorgeous Photomontage for us to use for our inspitration, you can choose any of the elements and get creative !
Isn't this GORGEOUS !!! :-)
Its a good idea to keep a check on the All New Just In Pages , there is invariably some new goodies listed and it is a handy way to keep up to date with all things new and crafty !!
We have the pleasure to welcome LIN into the December Spotlight this week :-) Lin has a FABULOUS blog filled with beautiful eye candy so please pop over and have a look !! :-)
For my card I used the little wheelbarrow with a snowy tree in it for my inspiration and luckily I had THE perfect stamp to do it !!!
I used a fabulous Hero Arts cling stamp called Snowy Night. I inked the image with Colourbox Frost White pigment ink ( this was recommended by Jennifer McGuire and it is a fab ink pad !) , stamped onto plain green SU cardstock and then embossed with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I used some Basic Grey paper from a Jovial pack and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. and layered with green and brown cardstock. The sentiment is also by Hero Arts, this was from a Very Merry Christmas sentiment set and I finished with some twine from American Tag.
I feel as though I cheated this week !! this was so quick and easy to do and I must say I do LOVE this one and will keep this in mind if I need any quick last minute cards making !! Very economical to make and will fit easily into an envelope !! PERFECT !!
Thanks for the photomontage Joy, I LOVE it :-) xx
