Picture Inspiration ~ Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #107

Happy Friday everyone 

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #107 presents you Holiday Hues

Use the picture/colours or both to inspire you to create, 
share and join in with the Paperbabe Stamps challenge.

Here's a simple card creation using those prompts.

Vintage Christmas Wreath Card:

 Using two different sized circles I masked an area of card to give 
me the shape I needed. Spraying distress oxides into the aperture
when dry I stamped the tips of the pine tree stamp from the 
Bottle Brush Tree set all around that open wreath area. 

Taking away the masks extra stamping is added around the 
wreaths edge,  just look how those tips resemble pine needles.

Solid Stars from the Cute Nativity stamp set are used to create 
star cookies with added glitter glue for that sweet frosting detail. 

Vintage photo distress ink gives them a baked tone

with rusty bells and a neatly tied bow my 
Vintage Christmas Wreath Card is complete.

The Design Team would love to see your take on the challenge. 

Pop on over HERE and share your creativity, there's a 
chance to win a Paperbabe Stamps prize every fortnight.  

Wishing you all much Creativity 

HUGS Tracey xx

The wreath you created is so beautiful, the stamping creates very realistic pine needles and those star cookies look great. I love that you offset the wreath too and those rusty bells are the perfect finishing touch.

I hope you have a lovely weekend and find some crafty time. Hugs, Anne xx

I want to thank you for visiting my blog. Nothing is broken, but I’m so sore I can’t sit and type with one hand for any length of time. I am sending this generic message because I want you to know I stopped by, appreciate you, and read your post today. Thanks for understanding.
