Hello, my friends. Are you glad that the busyness of Christmas is over? We still don't have any snow. Not that I'm complaining, but I don't think I can remember a year when we haven't had some snow before the end of the year, even if it melted. Seriously, we've seen maybe a half inch on the ground, and that was gone before the end of the day. We were getting some flurries earlier, but now that it's dark out, I can't really tell if anything is sticking or not. Anyway, I'm sure we'll get some before too long. This is Wisconsin after all.
Today, I made some stamping time and created a card for a StampTV challenge of making your own designer paper, as well as a challenge for Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium to use hearts.
The stamp set I used is called Nana's Needlework from Gina K Designs. The background is stamped with various colors of distress inks. I stamped the image with tuxedo black memento ink and colored with copic markers. Then I cut out the image. The doily hanging on the shelf was done as a separate piece.
For embellishment, I tried something a little different. I did a double spirelli corner, basically just two spirelli corners that are offset. I'm not sure if I like it or not, but it was fun to try. I also added some pearls in the corners.
The sentiment is from SU.
Thank you for stopping by.
