Watercolor Winter

Dec Crew 001It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  We actually had a little snow on outside this morning when we woke up.  Today I need to get some running around done.  At least I finally got my Christmas cards finished and mailed yesterday.

Trying to get some of the cards I made ‘early’ posted on my blog before the holiday os over!  This was a card I made for the December Creative Crew on SCS.  The challenge was to incorporate newsprint/book print in your card.  The base of the card is Riding Hood Red,  I took a piece of the First Edition, stamped the outline poinsettia in Basic Black and the more solid image in Riding Hood Red.  I layered this on Basic Black then to the card front.  Next I took a piece of Lucky Limeade, cut into a banner, ran it through the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, added a piece of Champagne Glimmer paper then added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting in Lucky Limeade, punched with the Decorative Label punch and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped an additional flower on the newsprint – I did one in Riding Hood Red and one in Lucky Limeade (for the leaves), cute them out and layered onto the card front using dimensionals.  I finished it off by coloring some Basic Pearls with the Gold Glimmer pen and adding to the center of the poinsettia.

Gee…what will I post once Christmas is over?  Oh…that’s right…NEW STUFF!!!
