I love Christmas(really? No kidding) and I love actually stamping the image and I love colouring. I bought this new tool where you can place the white card on the platform and hold it in place with these magnets. You place the stamp where you want it to go and the see-through platform, that you made sure is open(like a book) you fold onto that card to stamp the image. It picks up the stamp, which you can ink up, and then fold it back onto the card. It places the image right onto the card but here is the great thing, if you missed an area and the colour is weak there, you just open it up, re-ink the stamp and fold it back onto the white card. It will make another image exactly on top! You can also take a smaller stamp and create a wreath like I did here...I love this new tool. Once I inked everything the way I wanted, I took my tombow markers and coloured in the image...I always find colouring relaxing. I mounted this on brown cardstock and added the sticker garland which I also coloured the leaves and red berries. To add some sparkle, since you know I do this, I took some red Stickles and placed them wherever the berries were. I added the bow to finish it off.
I sent Shady a card because, I just wanted to and he was, thankfully, over the moon with it which made my day! Well, he sent me a note of thanks along with washcloths and an Easter egg that his wife, Kathy made and I am deeply humbled that they went to that effort. I had to show what she created and it made me feel so good because my mom in law used to make these washcloths and i loved them. It brought back fond memories so, again, thank you!!
Have a great week ahead!
