Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

Masking for Christmas

My bow has slipped! I didn't notice that until now, but hey! you get the idea!
Punch a 1 3/8" circle in the centre of a post-it-note and place in the centre of a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Using Pretty in Pink, sponge inside the circle, then use the floursh stamp from Season of Joy stamp set, randomly with same ink. Pretty in Pink cardstock base was stamp with Versamark using the same flourish stamp. Merry Christmas is from the same stamp set.

There have been a few versions of this technique but I decided to use the Fir Cones stamp from Autumn Days stamp set. I punched a 1 3/4" circle from a post-it-note and placed the circle in the centre of the square card. Using Stampin Write markers in Old Olive and Creamy Caramel, I stamped around the edge of the circle in a fairly uniform fashion, thinking of clock times = 12 o'clock, 6 o'clock, 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. Then filled in the gaps! The red sprigs were made using only the end part of the Autumn Days berries stamp.
Finished off using the Scallop Oval and Large Oval punches with the Merry Christmas greeting from Season of Joy.
Thanks for looking.
