FFC43 - Merry Christmas




Time for FFC43! This time we have a fun pile of presents for inspiration:




I focused on the lines of the chair seat by stamping an old Impression Obsession background stamp on craft cardstock. I then used my brand new dies from the Papertrey Tinsel and Tags kit to make this red and white scene. I finished it off with a Kaisercraft sentiment stamped in Granite (I meant for it to be Charcoal (ie darker), but I had put the wrong lids on a couple of my stamp pads. Kudos to Stampin Up and Versafine for lids that are attached and keep people like me from doing dumb things like that! lol!

This challenge runs until Wednesday November 4 - hope to see you there!

I love how you made your own background paper (that is what I thought it was, designer paper). I love your circle scene Ardyth. This works for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use Kraft also.

Such a sweet festive scene. The ink you used for the sentiment works (and I thought I was the only one who misplaced ink lids...). Gorgeous!
