bring happiness & joy

One of my new favorite stamp sets is Candy Cane Christmas (I used it yesterday and will be using it again today)...and I haven't even busted out the matching dies or inked up the actual candy cane from the set yet...that's how much I love useful in creating so many fun projects. When I saw this card from Maile Belles, I knew I wanted to try to recreate it...and it was so easy. You can check out her post of this card on her blog here.

I just needed to be a bit creative because she used the Green Thumb stamp set for the ornament strings/hooks, and I do not have that one. Instead, I use the School Time set. I found that the ledger stamp set had a perfect line that I could use to recreate the look, all I needed to do was carefully ink up one line from the ledger stamp. It was perfect if I do say so myself, and a became a new use for an stamp set I already know, stretching my supplies!!

I went for a non-traditional card this time around with the color scheme. I am loving aqua, pink, and light green for Christmas cards this year...and this one would be so easy to recreate. Oh and I can't forget to mention my fondness of the new Stylish Sentiments: Holiday stamp set either. I had such a hard time picking which sentiment to use on this card. I can't want to ink up another stamp from this set. I can already tell I am going to have quite a fun time making my holiday cards this year!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
