Joyful Tidings with a Little Gorgeous Grunge

I got to spend a little time in my craft room today (yay!).  The card design that was running around in my head yesterday didn’t want to transfer onto paper last night but after giving my creative mind a long rest, I finally got the elements to come together as I had envisioned.

Here’s a list of the products I used in the design of this card:

Pool Party Card Stock
Basic Gray Card Stock
Whisper White Card Stock
Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad
Versa Mark Pad
Christmas Messages Stamp Set (clear-mount) (wood-mount)
Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (clear-mount) (wood-mount)
Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack
1/8″ Silver Ribbon
Frosted Finishes Embellishments
Season of Style Designer Washi Tape
Stampin’ Trimmer
Snail Adhesive
Stampin’ Dimensionals

{HINT:  I “stamped off” once before stamping the “Joyful Tidings” greeting on the Whisper White Card Stock to get a lighter shade of gray.}

If you ever struggle getting the design in your head to transfer to paper, just take a break and try again.  It took me three tries to get the grunge look I was going for (it’s a good thing that paper has TWO sides 🙂 ).

I’m sad to see the long weekend come to an end.  I hope to spend some time each evening this week in my craft room so I should have a few new projects to share with you.  If not, I still have some favorite swaps from Convention yet to share with you.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Until next time, stamp on my friends,
Linda
