Season's Tweetings


Hey all!
Keeping this one super short and sweet today. Why?
I have the day off, hubby's at school, the kids are at school,
and you know the old saying about when the cat's away, don'tcha?
But in my case, the mommy will play --with her cardmaking supplies!
I hope to bang out a couple more Christmas cards
 before the gang returns.

Quick note:
Notice how the last three cards have all used the same
 sheet of background paper -- just different parts of the design?
Also I used the same stamp on this card as the one before,
but I only borrowed the little birdie this time.
I'm trying to do more of that. Use up what's already out
while the inspiration still lingers. In fact, I want to get a
box/tray for the corner of my desk for paper scraps that
need to get more use before I file the rest away.
This comes from both a severe lack of storage space
and a desire to be more economical with my supplies.
Do you guys ever craft that way?

Well, without further ado:
today's card.


Supplies:
cardstock: Bazzill kraft
paper: My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter collection
stamp: Hampton Arts
ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
copics: R24, R27, R59
embellishments: Martha Stewart baker's twine, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpha stickers, diamond stickles, white gel pen
noteworthy tool: Ranger paper edge distresser

  3. Oh yeah, I sent you an email this morning with an ink/stamping question. Don't know if you had a chance to take a look at your email yet though.... I know you don't have much time to check it!

  4. Hope you had a fun creative day! :) Love this cute card! I am also loving your idea to "use up" those paper scraps. I think when the inspiration is there it is an awesome idea to get the most out of your supplies. You made three beautiful cards, all completely different, with the same sheet of paper...that is fabulous! :)
