Home for Christmas

Home_for_christmas_2 Good morning!

I love simple cards & I bought the Home for Christmas stamp set because I knew I could add a little color & be done.

Here’s how I made the card….I inked my stamp with Creamy Caramel ink, then I took my Old Olive Marker and brushed some ink over the greenery and the tree.  I used the Real Red Marker (next time I’ll use Really Rust) and brushed it over the sled and the bow on the wreath.  Next I brushed the Close to Cocoa marker over the skis and the light fixture (is that what it’s called?).  Then I stamped it on my Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Seriously, it was super fast!!  I added just a bit of glitter to the greenery to give it some sparkle and added the greeting to the inside.

Have a great day!!

    That is a really pretty card especially on the white cardstock. NICE!!

  2. Love your card Angie. I never thought to use the markers directly on the rubber image first. I was thinking of colouring in areas after I stamped the image. I like your way better; it seems faster neater.

  3. Yummy! Oh I wish we had that stamp set in New Zealand. That is going to make your Christmas card making so quick and easy.

  4. Angie, this is beautiful! So clean and crisp!

    Wow, this card is gorgeous! See, I would have seen this image and thought it was difficult and I wouldn’t want it plain but wouldn’t want to take the time to color everything in. I love what you did with just a couple of colors.

  8. Wow, i love it! Might I suggest some dazzling diamonds to be the snow flakes on the greenery? i love a little bling! :)
