Christmas Card Mash Up

Mash Up the Past!

Today’s Christmas card is a “Mash Up” from 3 past Christmas cards. I didn’t even realize how similar it was to each until after I was finished! I guess when you like something, you keep going back to it – even if it is subconsciously! LOL

Merry-Bright-Ornaments by Kitchen Sink Stamps

I stamped the pine cone and branches directly onto the designer paper and was a pleasantly surprise with how soft and muted the colors became once they dried. I am glad I had waited for the branches to dry before I added the sentiment. Stamping the sentiment 3x’s helped for it to stand out.

Thanks for stopping by and have a inky day!

A Beary St. Patrick one minute …

… now a Beary St. Nick!    He’s a bear for many holidays!

Please don’t let the theme of this card imply that I have my seasons mixed up. I am attempting to get a jump start on my Christmas card making. I figure if I start now, I might be ready and have enough come late November … instead of my usual mailing my holiday cards AFTER Christmas! LOL!

That is 1 Christmas card down … ??? to go!  – LOL!
