Recently I got to spend a weekend in my favorite fashion. In my jammies, making cards. Usually I start with some sort of a notion as to what I want the card(s) to look like. Not this time. I just got out some favorite supplies and started playing (and making a mess--not a little pile of scraps and some punches sort of mess---I'm talking a big, old, can't find your phone in it, honkin' mess---ha! it was great!).
This was the first batch. A bit of paper, part of a doily, die cut Christmas icons (covered liberally with Stickles---cuz all Christmas cards a better with something sparkly, right?) and some twine, ... and this is what happened. I made about a dozen of these.
On the next batch of cards, I wanted to use the cut-a-parts from a pad of Pink Paislee holiday paper and see if they could help me put together some quick and easy cards.... and they did! All I really had to do to spruce them up a bit was layer the cut-a-part on a coordinating paper and add a dimensional embellishment (or two). And since there were two sheets of the cut-a-parts in the pad I got multiples of this set done too.
And last I took out one of my favorite Christmas stamps, picked out some coordinating Distress inks and added a die cut greeting, some punched stars (and yeah, I still managed to get a little glitter glue going on too).
Ahhh, jammies, paper and punches and glitter glue (and a whole lot of coffee). It was a great weekend (I'm pretty sure even the dogs were kind of sparkly by Sunday evening.)
It was such an awesome mess...
get your merry mojo on,
