Wassail Christmas Mojo


I know it's been a few days since my last post but we're having a few jobs done around the home so it's been all go. I have only just started to play with my new purchases from the Craft Show!!!

OK, so Mojo 101 and I decided to make a Christmas Card with this week's sketch.

Stamp: Art Stamps Australia (sorry no other name).
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and LuminArte Sparkling H2O's.
Card: Green Bazzill, GKD Soft Sand and PL Layering Weight Pure White. SU Riding Hood Red, DP Basic Grey Wassail.

This little stamp was one of seven I picked up at the Art Stamps Australia stall at the show. I thought it would be good for a few quick Christmas Cards. I used another new purchase the sparkling H20's to colour the image before cutting with a Spellbinder's Nestability. A scalloped circle was embossed with the Swiss dots embossing folder and the stamped image matted to this.
The base card is cut from Bazzill card stock, the next layer is Soft Sand. Two pieces of dp were attached to this with the Riding Hood Red cut to shape and added.
The third piece of dp was matted to more Soft Sand and attached to the background with foam tabs. That just left the stamped image, which was also attached using foam tabs to pop it up.

One more Christmas card ready!!!!
It's been a really windy day here is Sydney today. The wind woke me at 4am this morning and at 6am we had to bring in the awning over the balcony, it was so gusty I thought we might have a problem. The garden, after my hard work on Sunday, is covered with branches and leaves but there's no point going out the back until the wind drops. Yuk! days like this an apartment seems like a good idea!!! OK I'll stop moaning...
Till next time.....

Lovely Christmas card Sue, I haven't made one yet!
I know what you mean about the weather it's terrible here today so windy and torrential rain - but like you say everything that was done in the garden at the weekend was a waste of time! I can feel muscles I didn't even know I had - I'm getting to old for too much heavy work these days!! Jo x
