warmest wishes

Last weekend, I got a chance to play a lot with some stamps that had not seen ink yet. Where the time goes, I don't know. So many cute stamps and so little time. lol This is Carol Singing Charlotte. I think she is adorable.

This was a quick and easy card to make. I stamped the image, cut it out with a rectangle nestability die, and colored it with copic markers. Then, I cut all the layers and wrapped the ribbon around the patterned paper. I assembled everything and added my sentiment tag and poinsettia. I found these poinsettias at a local craft store. They are floral arrangement pieces. I just snipped off one of the flowers to use on my card.


I don't think you can see it well in the photo, but I added liquid applique to Charlotte's hat, sprinkled it with glitter and then heated to make it nice and puffy. Isn't Charlotte adorable?! I just love the Charlotte and Charlie stamps. Whiff of Joy has another release coming up, too, so be sure to check them out on Katharina's blog and her design team blogs. Cute stuff!

Have a great weekend!
