O Come All Ye Faithful....

I just got a couple of the new Limited Edition sets and played for a few minutes last night. This stamp is from the Noel Noel set of 9 stamps. Some I cut the "bolder" words from the rest. And this background is a technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter called Faux Painted Paneling. If you'd like to get this newsletter please tell Pat that I sent you!

I stamped the words in Burnt Umber plus used the ink and color dusted around the edges of the stamped label. The label is from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One. I found some brads that coordinated very well!

Here you can see a closeup of the stripes. The paper is by Core'dinations so it's brown on one side and red on the other. Can you guess what I did to create this striped background?

Are you tired of my Christmas cards? I do have plenty now to send even after I gave away 2 dozen of them! And with this new Limited Edition set, well, I probably will make a few more. But I really need to get crackin' on my gifts!

And for those in Green Valley, AZ.... My next class is Dec.1 at the AZ Scrapbooking store from 1 - 3 pm. I'll be teaching the Cuttlebug Christmas class that I had early this month. It's back by popular demand!! Please call the store and reserve your space soon! I do have a limit of 10 "students".

To create the stripes, did you run the paper through a paper shredder?
