Today I have a card with some very old Cornish Heritage Farms stamps….
these are from back before they went offline and then came back. So pardon the lack of a link….these aren’t made anymore NEWSFLASH! Kim Hughes just released the set in her Paper Smooches Store!! WOOHOO! I used some October Afternoon paper, and layered some May Arts ribbon (red velvet with green satin..mmmm!)…I had toyed with just a big bow, but really wanted to use the sentiment, so I diecut the stamped words with Labels 18, and hand-trimmed the red layer to make it pop. (Too much white was goin’ on!) That allowed me to punch a hole in one side of the sentiment, thread an extra piece of the green ribbon through, and add a holiday brad to squeeze the tail into a more interesting shape.
Oh what fun to color simple shapes! Kinda reminds me of coloring books I loved so much as a kid. For the trees, I used G07 and G18, and a little R29 for the hearts. And Glossy Accents, of course, so they’d shine! The snowman has just a teeny bit of B0000 under his tummy and nose, and a little B00 around the trees. The snow’s made with teeny dots of puffy paint.
And now….for something REALLY exciting!
