Well the new house is coming together, and room by room it's getting better. I 've taken "before" pics so I'll take some "after" pics before our housewarming this weekend.

I've got bits and pieces of my scrap area coming together and I am so inspired to create in my new space! I've made a couple of cards and gift-type things especially since I just had two thanksgiving celebrations...

I've been continuing my quest to make non-Christmas stamps into Christmas stamps... Easier said than done! But I may have cheated a little with this Amuse stamp called Embellish Tree, beacuse technically it's designed to be embellished however you want, so I made it into a Christmas tree! I cut the image panel with a nestie and then airbrushed the background with Copic markers and airbrush system.
Supplies: Paper: Papertreyink (white), American Crafts, DCWV; Stamps: Amuse(embellish tree, sentiment, and tiny ornament); Ink: Ranger (Nick Bantock Lamp Black); Copic Markers and Airbrush system.

This second card took a little longer to execute on account of the white glue clogging up the little metal tip used to draw fine lines and accents. This glue is interesting because it goes on white but also stays white, which is great for snow!! You might remember when I used this branch on previous cards, but it was never used for Christmas cards, so it was exciting to make this new discovery! I hope you like this card, and I hope I have inspired you to look at your stamps with a fresh eye!!

Supplies: Paper: Prism (white), Papersalon (red); Stamps: Hero Arts(branch, bird), Amuse(sentiment, snowflake); Ink: Ranger (Lamp Black), Versamark; Glitter (Warm Highlight, Glitter Ritz), White Glue, Copic Markers.
