Third Day of Christmas Card Idea and a Shout Out
I used papers from two of Basic Grey's collections, Dasher and Fruitcake. I just love the distressed look of the papers. I don't have to do anything to them :) The acrylic frame and poinsettia are from Making Memories. I found some olive green silk ribbon which I attached to a chipboard tag. It was raw chipboard that I painted to match my page. I stamped the word "Christmas" on it with brown Staz-on. The journaling block is a stamp from Making Memories. I stamped on white paper, then distressed with a stippling brush with both blue and brown ink. I added an American Crafts chipboard tag as well. The satin stocking is an ornament from Wal-mart. I like to look in places other than craft and scrapbooking departments for embellishments. The title "Stuffed" is chipboard glitter letters from Target's $1 bin. I always make sure to stop by Target at least once a month to see what's new in the bargain bins. I almost never go away empty handed. The last time I was there, I found lime green metal mesh wastebaskets for $2.50 each. They are perfect for my scraproom. I have two!
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon with more sassy scrapper fun!
