Ahhhh, to get away from it all....

>> Wednesday, January 9, 2013


  As we all slowly get back to normal, I was able to take an evening and forget about cleaning and putting away the Christmas decorations and just relax and stamp.  A well deserved break too!  Sadly, the work was waiting for me when I was finished stamping :(  How nice would it be to escape to someplace like this....

  The first card I made on my break was this quick and easy - yet colorful card.  I stamped our new Silhouette Majestic Pines on white card stock using black pigment ink and heat embossed it using clear powder.  After I trimmed it fairly close I made a mask for the bottom so I could separate my reds and greens.  I sponged on yellow, orange and red dye inks (I did finish coloring the sun using a marker) on the top section and then used the top portion of the mask to add the greens on the bottom.

For the Possibility of a Miracle sentiment, I stamped it in 2 portions using clear ink and embossed using white embossing powder.  The middle was looking a little empty, so I cut down 2 pieces of black card stock and after distressing the edges, I gently tapped the edges on a white stamp pad.

This was one of those nice cards that came together just like I though it would :)  It was nice that my first card of the new year went easy - do you think it could be an omen???  May the stamping gods be good to me this year!

I hope you all pop back in tomorrow to see the winner of our current challenge - torn paper (you still have time to enter!!)  and see what we have in store for you in the new challenge!

Happy Stamping!
