Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
I FINALLY sat down in my creative room
and made myself work!
I really wanted to do the 'Twofer Challenge'
this time around which is 'wreaths'.
The stamps I used for this challenge are from 2015
and I purchased them at a stamp store that recently opened up
in downtown Shipshewanna Indiana, an Amish community.
The stamps are from Rubber Stamp Tapestry
Cardinal In Holly.
I haven't had this kind of stamp before and found it very intriguing!
There was an entire rack of them to choose from,
so I need to make the trip again and get a few more
before the roads get too icy (about an hour from where I live in Michigan).
For the first card, I used a stylus to trace around a circle
so I had some kind of an idea of where to stamp
(I need lots more practice at this)
I stamped with Dew Drop inks,
first with New Spout, then Bamboo Leaves,
then came back in with Love Letter.
I think next time I would make the wreath a bit fuller.
The second card I just stamped in two corners,
added a die cut SW tree, a few sequins.
The sentiments on both cards are from
Kaisercraft Xmas Quotes.
It's a start for me to get back into creating,
so hard to do after the loss of my Mom as we were extremely close
and I feel a little (a LOT) lost at times (most times).
Thanks for visiting with me today
and have a happy and blessed thanksgiving here in the states!!
