Well, the screws and wire were removed from my ankle Wednesday morning. True to form, I was totally sick from the anesthesia. So instead of having 2 days of stamping, I only had one, today. So here's what I accomplished.
First I saw that CCEE stampers had a snowman challenge here. Instead of a card, I had saved these cans from Yams I had on Thanksgiving. What made me decide to keep them was they were white on the inside, gold on the outside and a nice size. Since I opened them with a Pampered Chef can opener there was no sharp edges and I could use the lids to reclose if I wanted.
See, you can hardly see the seam.
Now it's time to decorate. I picked my images, both from Whiff of Joy out of Switzerland, a snowman (for the challenge) and Santa because I wanted to. SO send the Challege police after me. LOL
I stamped my images and cut out with Spellbinder labels. Had I known the large one for the Santa would have covered the seam, I wouldn't have had to be so meticulous on matching. The snowman image I layered on the next size label die (Sorry, I don't have my dies labeled as to what number they are).
Next Flourishes WINTER WHITE CHALLENGE. Show off a little pop of color, but make sure the overall feeling is white. Since almost everything outside is white with all this snow it was easy to do this!
I stamped the large evergreen in Ivy Brillance Ink on vellum. That was layered on a piece of Stardream Opal cardstock that I ran through the Cuttlebug dots folder, layered on Forest cardstock on a Stardream base. I added a bow, a few die cut flourishes and some gems to decorate the tree. One more Christmas card done!
