Holy Family

As I said in my previous post, today is play time. When you are trying to get ready for workshops, card classes, etc., sometimes stampin becomes a job. You have to spend some time playing and doing what you like most. So that is what I have been doing today. I love this stamp set, but had only found a couple of cards I really liked when complete. Today, I looked at Stamping 411 and just fell in love with their sketch and knew this stamp set would work. The one to the right is the second one I did with the sketch, because the one below, I did not cut the last two sizes. After I was finished I noticed it was not quite the sketch, but I liked it also. Both look good and may be the cards I use for my Christmas Cards this year.

I also spritzed them with the shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol. It really is great and the card actually shimmers. I just love the shimmer paint. I just love stampin! lol You can't really see the affect in the picture, but the card actually shimmers.

Other items used were card stock, soft suede and rich razzleberry - classic Ink - Old Olive, soft suede, rich razzleberry, so saffron. I used the ink pressed on the inside of the cover and colored the picture with a blender pen. 3/4" and 1" punch. Soft Suede polka dot ribbon. The other stamp set used besides Holy Family was Four the Holidays and the Star with Merry Christmas was from Delightful Decorations.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.
