Warm and Cozy Christmas 1

Hello again,
I'm back! well we did it 6 out of 7 of us talking all at once! add to that a couple of husbands saying hi and it was a fantastic start to the day!! More about this later.
What do you think of this little card?
  • Stamps: GKD Warm and Cozy Christmas, Sentiment SU
  • Card: Red craft card. Kaisercraft dp - Cheer, Basic Grey - Wassail and Figgy Pudding Forest.
  • Copic Markers
This is my card for Shannon's sketch challenge over at Stamp TV this week. I loved the strips and as she had used some stitches on her card I thought I'd do the same playing with a stitch I hadn't used on paper before. I love how it turned out and know I'll use it again.

I attached the three strips to my background paper and used the (very expensive) embroidery machine to add the stitch detail . (I must remember to change this needle if I do any fabric sewing lol!).
The image was stamped and clear embossed then coloured with my Copics (not very well really I need to take the time to practice!).
I decided to cut a frame with two sizes from my Spellbinders square dies then ran it through the Cuttlebug using Swiss dots. I fixed this onto the image then using foam tape attached it to the card.
The sentiment from SU was added to the bottom to finish off the card.
Strips must be all the go at the moment, Stamps and Smiles sketch for the week is similar!!

Back to the chat fest this morning......... at 10am we got on line and I pulled the plug about an hour later. Betty is going to run the chat next Sunday so we don't all talk over each other ROFL!! We have to send her an email with what we want to talk about and then we'll work through the list - sounds good ah I wonder if it works! Christina from Sunshine's Paper Obsession was there too with Rob (briefly) so really want to talk about what she has coming up with her Digital images - must write that on my list. Did you know you can have up to 24 people on a conference call??? and Skype is a free download from the Internet with free Skype to Skype calls....... just imagine.
OK better get on with another card and post this over at Stamp TV.
Till next time...........
