I got a chance to do Beate's weekend sketch challenge again. I think that's two weeks in a row! I used three different strips of designer paper from the the Ski Slope designer paper pack that is in the holiday mini catalog. You can order from this tomorrow! Whoohoo! I sewed around the panels of dp with my real sewing machine. I don't do this very often but I love the results! The stamp is from the Holiday Trinkets stamp set in the big catalog. I love it because it's just simple stamping and the images are cute. The berries are covered with crystal effects to give them a sheen. The image is punched out with the 1 3/4" circle punch and backed with the bottom of the basket from the Sizzix Stampin' Up! exclusive baskets and blooms die cut. It fits the 1 3/4" circle perfectly!
Stamps: Holiday Trinkets
Ink: Old Olive, Real Red
Paper: Ski Slope designer paper, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Old Olive
Other: Crystal Effects, Sizzix baskets and blooms die, stampin' dimensionals, sewing machine
I went to see my mom yesterday. Sunday was her 77th birthday. I don't visit her often enough. She only lives 1 1/2 hours away from me. She has 10 children, 27 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren. It means so much to her when her family visits her. I vow to do it more often.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
