Welcome! I just got home from South Carolina last night. My dad has been pretty ill but is now out of the hospital. It was good to spend time with my parents, though I wish it had been under different circumstances. I have several projects to catch up on, but after that, things should start getting back to normal on my blog until CHA time in early January.
This Winter Trees CG471 stamp set by Hero Arts is a lovely one--it makes a classic, simple card--perfect for mass production for sure! For the sentiments I used HA's Holiday Sayings CL343. To ink the stamp, I mixed a couple of chalk inks: Colorbox Fluid Chalk French Blue ink and Versamagic Aegean Blue Chalk ink. When I mix inks on a stamp, I always ink the stamp with the lighter of the two colors, then ink it again with the darker of the two colors so that I don't darken a lighter ink pad. So far it doesn't seem to have hurt my darker pads either. Card base and white image layer are Shimmery White cardstock, and the blue mat layers is PTI's Blueberry Sky. I wanted a frosty bell, so I used a glue pen to coat the bell with glue, then sprinkled it with a fine glitter.
That's it for today--thanks for visiting!
