Well, this is just depressing.
What better way to ease me out of my funk, then by making a funky Christmas card?
It's a brand new month - and that means a brand new challenge up at STAMPlorations theme & sketch.
Here's the deets - You can play with the sketch OR the theme OR both! You can use >>ANY<< kind of stamps that you want (I know - easy peasy, right?).
As for me, I snatched onto that theme so hard and I just ran with it. And ran, and ran, and ran.
My dear bloggy friend, Betty Keefe, kindly contributed to my
As tempting as the woodman was... I found this fun green cover and decided to die cut some trees using CUTplorations Trendy Christmas Tree matching die set. If you haven't noticed lately - I'm a little obsessed with this die set.
Next, I took on the current challenge over at Shopping our Stash, which has a new-to-me technique on display called the Borgello Technique. My other dear bloggy friend, Lauren Bergold also contributed to my collection (ok, ok, it definitely is a hoarding situation) by sending me a bunch of random bits and vintage bobs - including some weird book pages and sheet music and a cool fabric patch.
If you haven't heard of the Borgello Technique - you're in good company. It goes a little something like this:
I started stamped a layer of ho ho ho!s (or oh! oh! oh!s depending on which way you're reading from) around the edges using Warm Hands, Warm Hearts stamp set and then layered on my layers. I also cut two layers of wording using CUTplorations Jingle All the Way Phrase Die Cut.
This card is also going to hang out with:
