Wow where has the time gone too. Mmmm probably with 4 grandchildren arriving here to live.
Child minding tripled now. Been to the beach, shopping for thongs, swim in the pool, lunch eggs and bacon and then strawberries and ice cream and that’s just today!! I loved every minute of it though. Witnessing their enthusiasm and excitement at new places and anticipation of adventures yet to come is a real boost to the emotions. A very happy day.
Not to say that creating is not my happy place, as it is. Making cards that are enthusiastically replicated by my Crafty Creations ladies is always a delight as well as a challenge to second guess what they would like this time. There are so many ways to use the marvelous products from Stampin’ Up! often it is hard to choose. Like today. Will I make the bottle tags, or shall we use the new masks with the delightful Fruit Stand stamps or perhaps some punch art with the Foxy Friends.?
So here are the replicated cards for last Friday. The original was spotted on Pinterest by Irma who also kindly lent us the stamp set, now retired. We sponged the card in Night of Navy or Dapper Denim then heat embossed the star and the sentiment with White Embossing powder. We did use the Misit to repeatedly stamp the Shepherds to get a solid enough image. Then used the appropriate coloured marker to dot out any remaining white sections. The card front was finished with a diamante on the star.
Off to sort out this weeks card. Cheers Naomi
