...another Christmas Card from me
The colours are Old Olive, Real Red and Very Vanilla. The stamp set is...that is such a good question, I will have to go look that up...back again, Holiday Spirit (it is not like I haven't used this set about 15 times this season, you'd think I'd know what it was called).
The Christmas trees are stamped on Water Colour Paper in black Stazon and Water coloured using an Aquapainter and Water Colour Wonder Crayons (Old Olive, Garden Green and Real Red). I've punched them out using the Tag Punch, and mounted them on dimensionals. There is also Gold Cord (which I am almost out of...approx. 60 m later [not 60 m on this card though ;-]).
Last, but not least, are the red blingy things that I have stuck on the Christmas trees. They are Renoir Embellishments (from my LSS). If you know how to glue these little guys onto a card without getting glue all over yourself, your desk and your project...I sure would like to hear from you. I tried the tweezers from the Stampin' Up! Toolkit. They didn't do the job...in fact, they acted more like a supercharged slingshot...and I had these little things - all glued up and flying about the room. NOT FUN!!!
BTW: Yes, I DO have a Stamp-a-ma-Jig. I just felt like free-handing those 'Happy Christmases' in. Remember, there are no mistakes in cardmaking, just FEATURES and different ways of doing things. This is a FEATURE...it is called 'wobbling words' :-).
