A Mini Card and A Mini Post

I absolutely love the Spellbinders Labels One die!!!  Through the miracle of UPS, one came to my door today.  I’ve invested a bit of time into the other die cuts, but this one has always had my heart – I’ma tellin’ ya, it’s a must have!!  I’m in the middle of a million things right now, namely a party on Saturday morning for which I need 14 handmade gifts.  Screech . . . time out!!  I sat down to test this little baby out and made a small 4 x 4 and a matching envelope.  Quite a satisfying feeling since everything else I’m working on is taking a chunk of time.

I have several cards in the works and a little project I hope to have done soon.  Please enjoy your holiday time — I hope you are fortunate to be spending it with loved ones.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Printworks – Q023 Spirit of Christmas (Joy Sentiment)
Paper:  Penny Black – Bottom Layer; Die Cuts with a View – Center Layer and Top Layer
Ink:  Color Box Pigment Ink – Merlot (embossed with clear embossing powder)
Accessories:  Spellbinders Label One Die, Ribbon, Martha Stewart Branch Punch

    Beautiful, love the vintage feel. I sure would like to know the products used – what stamp sets were used and is the music a BG stamp or paper?ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    Love this “joy” and vintage feel project. Please, please, please tell us where the “joy” stamp came from???!!!

    Joy, Joyeux Noel, Noel & Believe are my favorite words this time of year and I love the lower case joy you used.

    Joyful Blessings and may inspiration always find your heart and home – JeanReplyCancel

    This is an absolute gorgeous card. I love the Labels1 pattern which gives it an independently beautiful style. Your layout is different and gives it an interesting style from all angles. Your skill at coordinating color and stamp design is precise. I truly admire your talent.ReplyCancel
