Merry Rustic Christmas


Had a little bit of time to play!

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Simon Says Monday, Let's Get Ready For Christmas!
Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

This was a fun card to make.  I wanted it to look like a sign was hanging out by 
the curb and the barn beyond.  Kind of rustic and country, ya know?

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; 
A Year Of Flowers 2, Perfect Pallets and Rustic Autumn.
Stamped in Amalgam Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.
On my wood grained die cut I used Dove Grey and Timber Brown inks, 
die cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals and backed with Fun Foam for dimension.
Barn was stamped and fussy cut out.

The 'tree line' was created using the 'feathers' from the Perfect Pallets stamp set, 
they are for creating an arrow image.
WOS and Stickles for a glistening background.
 Distress ink also for the background.
Perfect Pearls for Poinsettia center.
Red and White Gingham Ribbon.

Merry Merry!

Just A Note

Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered into a few Challenges hosted by Simon Says Stamp:

Simon Says Monday, Stitch It.
Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes.

I made my own stamps ala Jen McGuire, 
using these dies from Paper Smooches, Foliage 1 and Fun Foam. 
Of course, I had to be a bit different and reverse the image ;)  

Stamped many leaves in a collage style in Distress Oxide inks in;
Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade.
I then cut many pieces in yellow, green and orange card stock 
and laid them over the stamped images.
It looks like a hot mess from here, 
but in real life it looks pretty cool and has a depth to it.

Covered with a sheet of Vellum to soften the look,  which I added the Paper Smooches Stitched die to along each side.
Sentiment is from their Sentiment Sampler set, stamped with Amalgam Black ink and then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
Thin Natural Twine.
Adhesive Rhinestones.

Thanks for popping by!

I adore this sentiment!

I patted Stickles all over the inked background, to make it really sparkle.
