Berry Branch


This is a card I made yesterday while I was enjoying my quiet Thanksgiving afternoon.

The stamp is Penny Black's Berry Branch rubber stamp. I colored on the rubber using Tombow (water based) markers, then stamped on Neenah Natural White cardstock. The thing I LOVE about this cardstock, besides it's superior quality, is the color of the natural cardstock. It's that it's not quite white...but not really cream. I guess it's somewhere in between, which is why they call it natural white?

Sorry for the quality of the photos. It's the best I could do since it's been dreary and rainy here ALL DAY. There hasn't been any natural sunlight...and I don't have a photo tent. Maybe that should go in my list for Santa? Ya think?

The sentiment is Northwoods Script Merry Christmas . I think it's such a beautiful font, and just the perfect size! It was stamped with VersaMark Ink then embossed with JudiKins Malachite embossing powder.

The cardstock is Blush Red Prismatics dark.

I hope you're all having a fabulous holiday weekend. Remember that there is a sale on all holiday stamps at Stamper's Dream through Sunday, November 30. All you have to do to receive 15% off all holiday stamps is to enter the coupon code HOLIDAYS on the checkout page.

Well...if you were like me, and a tad nuts, you ventured out to shop a little today. I'm off to try and recover from all the road rage, crowds, long lines, and absolute craziness! Geez...what WAS I thinking?

Thanks so very much for stopping by. I will be back soon with something new. Until then....

Michelle, your card is quite beautiful. I adore the clean lines, and the hint of Asian flare. The corner piercings are the sweetest! And yes your paper is divine.

I just love the gentle flow of this pretty card! It represents a feeling of peace and serenity I like to associate with Christmas. The layering on the card and sentiment panel are fabulous, and that touch of piercing just puts it over the top for me!
