My Creative Time Design Team Call
Emma at My Creative Time announced her first ever design team call on Sunday, October 23, 2011. Found Here. I was excited to hear this, as I've been a fan of her stamps since the first day I stumbled across her blog. Her requirements were to create a brand new project just for this call. After lots of thought about whether to create a card, a scrapbook layout, or an altered item, I decided on a card using Emma's All Around Christmas stamps.
It is a swing card, made using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares. Here it is partially open.
The stamp is Heartfelt Creations Holly Leaves Precut set from the Christmas collection. I stamped on Bazzil using Memento Ink in black, then embossed with clear embossing powder. The leaves are cut using the matching Spellbinders dies, and stamped with the matching Heartfelt Creations stamp with Versamark. They are also embossed with clear embossing powder. I'm usually not a fan of glitter - bling yes - but glitter, not so much. However, the holly berries were screaming for something, so I dug through my stash and found some glitter I had been given (thank goodness I had red). I used my Helmar 450 Quick Dry glue to fill in the stamped areas, sprinkled with glitter - and voilá, pretty holly berries!
Here it is fully open.
I left the inside mostly blank to write a Christmas greeting to the recipient. The Merry Christmas on the lower right corner is from Emma's All Around Christmas stamp set. The green cardstock is Bazzil. The patterned paper, ribbon and white cardstock base are all from my Michael's and part of my stash.
