Stamping Inspiration


This card was inspired by a lovely stamp I got with my Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.  What a cute scene! And it even has a cat. What more could you want?

Often when stamping images for a focal, I'll cut a shape with a die and then stamp it.  This allows me to easily mask off areas of the die cut that I might not want to be stamped.  After coloring this in with gel pens and chalks and adding a bit of Stickles and fun flock in places for the snow, I went looking for papers that would go with my focal.  I knew I would find some in the Christmas card kits I had from HOTP.

Not only did I find some papers, but I found some lovely embellishments to use for my greeting!  As you can see, I put the "Merry" oval up on foam tape to add a bit of dimension.  I also cut around some printed letter blocks to form the word Christmas - arranging the letters at different angles to get the look you see here.
