Gingham Holidays- FTL113 & CLCC 15

Happy Monday everybody! I need another day off! Traveling on the weekend makes for a very difficult Monday! LOL!

So, today I made another Christmas card. It's a little bit non traditional I think. It features the yummy gingham DSP from the pack called Build A Bear Workshops Pawsitively Prints 2. Its designed for the clothing on the little Build A Bear dies, but I think its perfect for regular card making because the prints are small. The ornament stamp is from Jolly Bingo Bits.
I did two different techniques as well. I did the rock and roll technique where you stamp onto a lighter color (So Saffron) and then roll the edges around in a darker color (More Mustard.)

I also took some of the Poppy Parade Ribbon and cut off one edge. I pulled it apart so that I had a bunch of thread. I used it like embroidery thread basically and made the little bow. So cute! And it matches perfectly! I love using thread to make tiny bows.


The sketch this week came from Clean and Simple, which I always love. The colors came from Create, Ink , which is a new favorite challenge blog of mine!






So, I've been working on my new class. I havent decided on a date quite yet, but it will feature Gift Card Holders. I don't know about you, but I give a ton of Gift Cards away. So, I need lots of these on hand! Here is a sneak Peak. And, like the previous class, this one will be available as a "to go" class if you live out of town! Stay tuned for details!
