Oh Joy – Watercolour Christmas

Why hello there! Thanks for popping by today. I’ve been a little absent from blogging as I took some time out from crafting and Stampin’ Up!… a little hiatus if you will BUT… I’m back and refreshed and excited to share some recent projects with you over the coming weeks. Part of my hiatus was getting organised with a plan that will allow me to regularly and consistently blog… so hopefully you’ll stop by again. I’m hoping to post on a Monday night and  a Wednesday afternoon… and then if there is more than that then BONUS!

To celebrate feeling refreshed and excited, I’m sharing a card today that celebrates joy to reiterate how I’m feeling after a break. The gorgeous sentiment on this card is from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set. You can see another of the gorgeous sentiments from the set in a card I made for the ESAD Blog Hop.

I combined my sentiment with the Sheet Music background stamp and stamped this on Very Vanilla cardstock to give it a softer feel than white. To give it a bit of a vintage look, I sponged the edges of the vanilla cardstock in Crumb Cake ink using a sponge dauber (best thing ever!). I snuck a little of some retired twine in because I thought it suited this card perfectly.

The last detail was a few gold sequins and we’re done! This will definitely be one of those cards that is saved and sent to someone special this Christmas. Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

See you Wednesday (hopefully!!!!)

Happy Crafting,
