WMSC #125 | Christmas Greetings

It has been ages ago since I played along with a challenge. Last night I had plans to clean my scrap room, but instead I made a card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 125. My Waltzingmouse stamps were collecting dust, so it was time to get them out and ink them up. Since Christmas is coming up I decided to create a Christmas card based on the sketch.

I stamped the music notes in vintage cream ink on the ripe avocado cardstock.


SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Sawdust), Papertrey Ink (Ripe Avocado) | Patterned papers: Papertrey Ink (Distressed Dots) | Clear stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps (Compliments of the Season, Very Vintage labels No. 10, Musical Backgrounds), Papertrey Ink (Holly Jolly) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch: Tea Dye Duo, Ripe Avocado, Vintage Cream), Versafine (Vintage Sepia) | Twine: Cards & Wishes | Ribbon: Cards & Wishes | Button: Papertrey Ink (Ripe Avocado) | Adhesive dots: Zva Creative | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Boxy Banners Die Collection, Photo Finish Strips Die Collection), Spellbinders (Labels 10), sewing machine | Other: sheet music

Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday

I had plans to post this birthday card a lot earlier, but since the recipient didn't receive it in time for her birthday I had to wait a little longer. I made this card for Melissa Bickford, one of Papertrey Ink's stamp designers. I love many of her stamp designs and have quite some of her mini stamp sets as well as some other sets. I knew the card would probably not arrive in time since I sent it five or six days in advance, but I didn't expect it to take two weeks either. Anyway, the card arrived last weekend so now I can share it here.

The flower stamps I used are from Melissa's Flower Fusion #3 mini stamp set, and the papers are from October Afternoon.

I've been busy working on new Christmas/Winter kits. Here's a sneak peek of the new Christmas kit Noel.
This kit as well as two other kits will be available in my shop Cards & Wishes later this week.

Have a wonderful day.
