Good Morning! So much to do today in preparation for Convention tomorrow! I am so excited! Tomorrow I will have that new catalog in my hands! But today I wanted to share one of my convention swaps with you. It is a Christmas Card made with the CUTEST new Hostess Set, Deer Friends.
Of course I had to use Rudolph, since my daughter has an obsession with him! It is Christmas at my house all the time! The Build A Bear Rudolph (who happens to be sitting at my stamp desk right now, wearing my SU! apron!) is a favorite, as well as the Rudolph movie, soundtrack, color book, you name it! It could be worse, could be BARBIES!!!!!!!!!
I also used the new Bella Rose paper, it is so fun and versatile! You will have to get some! It uses the new In Colors, Red Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss, they are so growing on me!
The Ric Rac was made with the new Scallop Punch, I know all of my customers will be adding this to their punch collections! It rocks! So, I took a 1' strip of card stock, in this case Close to Cocoa and punched a row of scallops, then flipped it and off set the scallops and punched an entire new row of scallops on the other side, creating Ric Rac! It does take a little practice, at least it did for me, so use up some of those scraps!
The saying at the bottom is from a new stamp set, Heard from the Heart. I stamped it in White Craft in and embossed it, in this one I used Winter White powder, but in the rest of my swaps I got a little crazy! I mixed the winter white with some Iridescent Ice powder to give it some sparkle! Love how that turned out, got the idea from my dear friend Britiney! (Hey B!)
The nose is a Red Rhinestone. My friend Lisa gave me like 1 million of these that she had left over from Christmas cards a few years ago and I used them on my Christmas card last year and still have 1 million left! So, they went perfect for Rudolph's nose! (Thanks Lisa!)
Well, I really need to get down to business, so much to do before we leave at first light tomorrow! The checkbook, prep for the kind hearts helping with my sweet Samantha, Dr. apt., swim lessons, cut paper for my shoe box swap that is tomorrow night...... I figure what gets done, gets done and the world will not stop if something does not!
