Annual Christmas Card 2008

First, have you checked out Gina K's new venture!! Gina K Designs PRESENTS Stamp TV. Gina has created a whole site devoted to stamping. Through her quality broadcast videos, she demonstrates how to perform stamping techniques...so you can see it AS you create. The videos are very well done, and I have to say, even though I have been paper crafting for many, many years, I learned something new! There are new challenges everyday and a chance to win a free stamp set.

So this scrapbook page is my first challenge. One of my goals this year is to scrapbook! I have become so hooked on making card that I have been ignoring my scrapbooking. My second goal is to use the stamps that have to scrapbook rather than buy more embellishments! So this is the perfect challenge.

I used my Gina K Magic of Christmas stamp set. I colored the reindeer with my copics. I used the four snowflakes from the set and sprinkled them with glitter and I used a variety of SU circle punches to punch them out. Some of the snowflakes are popped up on dimensionals! Then I added rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes. The border edge punch is Martha Stewart's snowflakes and I sponged some of the edges with SU Riding Hood Red ink.

Thanks for stopping by,

Melody

  1. This is gorgeous! Totally relate to not scrapbooking. Mine keep staring me in the face whenever I walk by the dining room table. Ugh!
