I am working on some early gifts. The closer it gets to Christmas the more I want to do other things besides working on gifts and decorations. I know this about myself so I try to get everything done before November. Of course I always think of someone I forgot so...
I love PSX. They went out of business before I even started stamping. I have tried to collect this botanical alphabet but still need a few more. This is a card set with a folder to hold the cards and envelopes. I used my nestibilities to cut and emboss the letter and Stampin Up! markers to color the letter. In my first attempt last year I learned that Stampin Up black ink is permanent but the chocolate chip is not so you need to use Stazon brown if you are going to "paint" on the images. The paper here is Anna Griffin and the solid blue is Bazzill. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the pink paper and punched the border on the print paper with the Treading Water punch by Fiskars. I so want a Scor-Pal. It would make the folder much easier.
