You hear so many times... "no need to reinvent the wheel..." Yeah. But we do it over and over and over again, huh?
Well I decided that I was going to NOT reinvent the wheel just one time. Usually I marry three or four (and sometimes MORE) ideas into one card. Any Toy Story/Buzz Lightyear fans out there? All I can say is "NOT TODAY ZURG!" :)
So, I went to the StampingAndBlogging.com blog. Using the Saturday Sketch Challenge #8 sketch here, I came up with this:
I do have to tell you - WAY prettier IRL (in real life)! The white shadow behind the ornament punch - just looks so nice on the card. Where did I get the idea, you may ask? Well, look at my blog header! Notice the shadow behind the ornaments on my blog header? You got it!
And did you notice the berries on this poinsettia? YUP! It is the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details - LOVE them!
Using markers, you can spotlight just one part of an image. That's exactly what I did on the poinsettia from the Christmas Blessings stamp set. I did the mistletoe image first - didn't really like that one as well. It was still nice, just thought the poinsettia image was a little bit better fit for the ornament punch!
Hope you enjoy!
