A Cute Little Christmas {Take 2 Thursday and Paper Smooches}


Happy Thursday!  Lindsay Amrhein and I are back today with another Take 2 Thursday.

This week we are using the darling Holly Jolly stamp set from Paper Smooches.  Holly Jolly was the Thanks A Million set that Paper Smooches offered for free(!) with a $60.00 purchase in September.  Of course, it is also available to purchase in the store in case you would still like to add it to your collection.  :) The set features tons of builder images for trimming the tree and decking the halls and here's my take: 

So this is a bit more rustic than I have been creating of late, but there is just something about a rustic holiday scene that makes me feel all cozy... like flannel jammies curled up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa cozy.  I started with a panel of rustic cream card stock and stamped the pine branches in Hero Arts Field Greens ink.  Next I stamped clusters of berries using WPlus9's Cranberry Crush ink and the sentiment in Hero Arts Cup of Joe ink. 

I inked the edges of the cream panel, and attached the card to a kraft card base.  However, I still felt like the card was missing a little something-something, so I pulled out a supply I haven't used in a LLLLLOOOONNNNGGGG time...  

That's right friends... JT is bringing sexy back, Meghan Trainor is bringing booty back, and I am bringing twine back (except, I'm not sure that it left to begin with...).  I even left the twine tails long and twirly for good measure. 

So now you need to go see what my talented friend Lindsay created with this same set.  I know you are in for a real treat. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have an awesome day!
