Snow immediately came to mind of course. I also, as I do every year, have pledged to use my stash more.
I've had this reindeer die for a bazillion years and it mostly collects dust. Out it came.
I love gel bead medium, but it's stashed in a drawer so it also rarely gets used. Out it came.
A tray of acrylic inks is sitting on a shelf, but it's away from my working area and often gets overlooked. Out came the blue ink.
Strolling through the aisles of JoAnn's last month I found myself standing in front of paper packs ON SALE. There was a pack of cork paper - cool! Not sure what I was going to do with it, I landed a pad in my basket.
I love how this has a bunch of texture on it. I stamped over the cork reindeer with one of my fave Stampotique stamps and as I looked at it, it occurred to me that the swirls looked a bit like targets. Oops! Not what I had intended, but fortunately I had stamped with Distress inks so I just dabbed them a bit with a water brush. A few gel pen highlights later and we were good to go.
The cards sat on my desk for a few days because something was bothering me about them; they felt unfinished. This morning I realized it was the blank space in the corner and a little fir branch was just the thing. Now they're packaged up and ready to be mailed. Yay!
Wishing you a fab weekend!
