My apologies for such an extended blog break! You know how the holidays are! But I finally got some cards made this weekend, so I have lots to show you over the next few days. First up:
I started with Eat Cake Graphic's A Scarf for Ferguson. I took some SU Pumpkin Pie paper and crumpled it until it was soft enough to pull apart into two layers. I then rolled this felted paper through the cuttlebug with just an embossing mat and cardboard shims to flatten out some of the "extra-felted" portions. I stamped Ferguson on two sheets, and cut out his ear so it would fold up on one. I layered the second one underneath so you wouldn't see polka dotted paper, and used a small piece of dimensional tape to prop the ear a little. The scarf I stamped and cut out from some Echo Park paper-I also stamped and cut it out twice so I could have the pattern going opposite ways for a more realistic look. I fringed the ends and also popped them up on small dimensionals.
The window is from Waltzingmouse's Twas the Night Before Christmas, embossed and cut out from SU Chocolate Chip. The shutters and sentiment are stamped onto Close to Cocoa and Santa is stamped onto Not Quite Navy, with some stars added with a stardust pen.
The background paper is also Echo Park. It's a big card--8 1/2 by 5 1/2--but I think Fergie deserves a nice big card, don't you agree?
I hope all your holiday plans are going well...I just sent off gift packages and cards today so all I have left to do is wrap DH's gifts! It's nice to have almost a whole week to enjoy the tree and lights without present-buying-and-wrapping stress, and hopefully that means some more stamping time, too! Stay tuned!
