I have a quick card and a quick post today! Here's my first shaped card that I've ever made. Well, I've made a circle one, but it doesn't count, lol! The current challenge at Peachy Keen is to make a shaped card. I love their challenges--they make me think outside the box (or rectangle, if you will, tee-hee)! You can find the PKS challenge here.
I love the seasonal Cricut cartridge "Gingerbread." It's so simple, but fun to decorate! I welded two stocking shapes with my Gypsy and used Ranger's Clear Rock Candy Stickles on the white icing. Then I stamped my sentiment from my new PK-859 "Christmas Greeting Words" stamp set.
Here's a close up of that sentiment. It stamped so well, the first time I used it! (I didn't have to "prime it" or whatever--no having to rub an eraser on it like some stamp companies have you do!) Then I embellished with a little Offray ribbon, a stick pin (from bulk at my LSS), and a Paper Studio button with some We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy floss! It's pretty simple for me, but I like it. I may have to do a few more!
You only have until midnight tonight, but go check out the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #45: Just Cards: Shape it Up.
And have a jolly day!
