Have you tried washi tape yet?

When I saw this Penny Black stamp at Hobby Lobby, I had to have it. I even got Michelle one for her birthday too.

On the 2nd card, I used something called Washi tape. OMG - I am in love!! Its like a paper masking tape and A Muse Studio sells it in different colors. I love it!!!

Jingle Bells stamp is by A Muse Studio.

How long have you been stamping?

I have been stamping for 10 years. Alot has changed in 10 years. I have changed my style quite a bit I think over the years. I prefer more simple cards now and I very rarely use patterned paper on my cards anymore. What happened? I used to make every single card with patterned paper of some kind. I love making my own backgrounds now. That's one thing I used to never do. I love learning new techiques. I can't get enough of you tube videos.

Christmas cards are officially done :).

My Christmas cards are done for the season. I only made 30 this year. I love how this card came out. I found the stamp at Hobby Lobby on sale for 40% off. I used red beads for his hat and I used glaze for his glasses.

Time for another wonderful A Muse Studio blog hop ...

You should've come here from Rita's blog.

This time we could pick either Christmas, Kwanzaa or Hanukkah. I have chosen a Christmas ornament that I made out of a switch plate cover. I got the idea from a Hero Arts tutorial and you can watch it here ... All supplies besides the switch plate covers and transparencies are from A Muse Studio. I got the switch plate covers at Home Depot, a box of 10 for ONLY $5.55 and the transparencies I got from Hobby Lobby. Cute huh?

Stamps used: Chill of Winter, Cool Yule

The next blog hop is Pamela
