Noel


Hi Blogging buddies!

Quick post today, I've got all sorts of work gathering and I can't concentrate on what I want to do, for the work I need to do!!!

Today's card was made to a sketch set by the lovely girls over at PCP,The Copics Buzz Challenge no 22.

I've used my set from Annabelle Stamps, Holly Branch.

Stamped the holly 3 times with the aid of the stamp-a-ma-jig from SU onto plain white card then coloured with Copics. I used a red zig pen to doodle the lines above and below the images.
This was matted to a piece of red card from American Craft Cards after I'd punched the bottom with my Fiskars punch (I think it's called 'end bracket' not too sure though!!!).
Plain white card is the base card with a layer of dp from My Memories and I rounded the bottom corners of both.
The green is from SU and it has been embossed with Swiss dots through the Cuttlebug and also had the bottom corners rounded.
I stamped Noel by studio g clear stamps in black ink onto white card then using a SU horizontal slot punch punched either end and threaded the red gross grain ribbon. This was tied around the embossed green card and tied in a bow to finish off.

I love the clean and simple look I get with this little stamp set, what do you think? Do you like this one?

Till next time...........

This is so cute - I love that little stamp.

Sorry about not getting back to you sooner about the craft market - I sell my cards through an art gallery in Newcastle that my mum is involved in. Once a year there is a Christmas Craft market held in Laman St which they participate in so I try to get extra cards together for that.
