joyful holiday greetings...

Hello!!!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Stopping in with a card I put together this morning for the current Merry Monday Christmas challenge.  They have a lovely sketch this week.   I have been in a bit of a creative funk, again, so I thought using the sketch would help.  I have lots of fun new stamps and dies, but just can't seem to get anything going... maybe I have too much stuff???!!! Anyway... I thought making something simple might help so I turned to Merry Monday since I need to get started on some Christmas cards.  I have never used my Make It Market Mini Kit:  Holiday Folk and since it comes with a sheet of images you can die cut and use I thought that would make things easy, but it turned out I was wrong, lol!  I still struggled to get something made!   I was going to use some of the patterned papers that come in the kit, but decided that none would work for the top panel so I inked up some PTI Fresh Snow linen cardstock with Broken China distress oxide ink and then flicked on water to create a look of snow falling.  That panel and a piece of the patterned paper from the kit were die cut along with the images.  I laid out where I wanted the die cuts and then stamped the sentiment.  Layered everything up and finally... I had a card made!!!   Here's to hoping I can get something else made, lol!!


Have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PaperTrey Ink; Stamps:  PaperTrey Ink; Dies:  PaperTrey Ink and AJVD; Ink:  VersaFine Onyx Black and Ranger Distress Oxide

Love the folk art look of this sweet cluster of Christmas-sy elements, Rosemary ... seems as though the bear is looking up and admiring that fabulous snowy background ... not surprising really, it's subtle and lovely! Hugs, Anita :)

I think it turned out great Rosemary! This is lovely. I just pulled this set out the other day. I haven't used it either and decided to put it to use this year!
