A Merry Little Tropical Xmas

Sunday, December 14, 2008

Hi all, just a quick card to share with you today. It's the weekend and as its getting closer to Xmas the days get busier & busier. I'm not hating it though :)
On another note, my Quickutz sophisticate set from Scrapbuggy arrived & I picked it up from Esther earlier today & it's *gasp* beautiful! Especially the price tag *snicker snicker* I'll put a project that i did with the sophisticate dies up tomorrow so in the meantime here's a card I made a few days back. Have i mentioned that I'm 'Oh So In Love' with PTI's polka dot basics? I did the back ground with their new vintage cream ink & then adhered some PP & then layered on a smaller piece of really nice Xmas-sy Green Bazzil polkies paper (i'm calling polka dots polkies from now on *grinz*).
I couldn't find the word 'Tropical' anywhere in my stamp stash so i just made one with the Heroarts basic lowercase letters stamps. (a MUST have)
The 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from Rusty Pickle actually comes in one line but i wanted a space in between them so I just simply cut them apart with a pair of sharp scissors. I recommend Tim Holtz's Tonic Non-stick Micro Serrated scissors, i just got them not long ago & they are the BEST!
You also probably can't tell from the photo but I actually punched out the larger snowflake on PTI's vellum cardstock. I think I really might be starting on a 'Must Buy' list today, because again i totally recommend getting their vellum cs. They're of really good weight & works with any punches. Normally I would have to adhere vellum on a piece of scrap paper before even thinking of punching through them. (they tend to jam up my punches, not good). Anyways, i layered a felt snowflake & added a bling button on top of them :)
