Even though I am stuck in bed day and night and am on 7 different perscriptions including narcotics, I am still sneaking to my chair (right beside my bed sits my awesome stamping center!), I still have time to create. Just as long as I don't doze off while in the middle of a project and spill glue or ink on it!
I can't remember if I told you that when I saw the new In Colors for the first time I hated them. But I ordered an asst. pack of them just to try the colors out. Well I LOVE THEM! Especially Ridinghood Red! It is a gorgeous Christmas color.
I used the q-tips and reinker (tutorial here) technique to color in the tree and stamped it on white. Then I sponged the edge with cocoa.
Then I matted on chocolate, retired DSP and baja bllue. I added the photo corners with brads attached and sponged the edges with matching color. I added the ribbon to the card base and then matted above layers onto card base.
I did something really stupid, but come on, I am on narcotics and mild sedatives here! I girl can screw ip once can't she? I decided stamped the sentiment along the bottom in chocolate in a line would be cool. Well apparently with my narcotic state I screwed up so I stamped a bunch of the sentiments all over the bottom. ugh
Lastly I added some stickles to the tree to give it a bit of seasonal twinkle.
Stamps: I think it is Glorious Garlands (lost the sticker on the stamp box!)
Paper: Ridinghood Red, Baja Blue, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, retired DSP
Ink: Ridinghood Red and Kiwi Kiss reinkers, old olive brads, chocolate chip marker, white tafetta ribbon, baja breeze, close to cocoa, yellow-limegreen and stardust stickles.
My mom got me a new desktop for stamping yesterday and I am getting my hubby to set it up. It is part of the white cubicle line at Michaels. It came with a desk top and a shelf, on sale for $23.99. As of yet I have been using a small student cheapy desk with barely any room for me to stamp. So as my bedrest continues I will be stress free creating on a wider, better surface! Yay me!
Have a good Sunday all. I know I will...laying in bed as my muscles start to seize from lack of movement! lol
