I took a little time this morning to play along with this week's featured stamper challenge on SCS. The featured stamper this week is annascreations, and you can see her awesome gallery HERE . I had not been to her gallery before, and she truly does have some fabulous creations there!
You can see her card that I chose to case HERE . I used the same stamp and layout, but changed everything else.
The main image is from Inkadinkado's Birds Galore clear stamp set. This is the very first time I've used these stamps. When they were all the craze I couldn't get a set because they sold out so quickly!
I inked the bird with Ranger Fired Brick Distress Ink, and the leaves were inked with Peeled Paint Distress ink. I stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock, then used my rectangle Nestabilities to cut and emboss. I sponged a little Tea Dye ink around the edges.
The designer paper is two different patterns from Fancy Pants Happy Holidays . The Burgundy Woven Velvet ribbon is May Arts, and the cardstock is Blush Red Prismatics and Herbal Green Prismatics dark.
The Merry Christmas sentiment on the front is from the Hero Arts Holiday Messages clear stamp set. They are the perfect size stamps for small spaces! The red berries are pearls from Kaiser Craft .
The sentiment on the inside is Northwoods All Nature Whispers . I thought it was very appropriate for the bird on the front. Sorry for the crooked picture. I was in a hurry to finish so I can TRY to make myself get in the attic to start getting out the Christmas decorations! And I really need to get my tree up today too! Geez...where IS my Christmas spirit? LOL!
Thanks for stopping by. And I hope you all have a fantastic Sunday!
It's a Red, White, and Blue Weekend
