Muse Christmas Vision #49

Hi Everyone,

I am back to stimulate you to pull out your Christmas supplies and play with us at the Muse Christmas Vision!

I made a real simple card using paint chips (courtesy of Home Depot...... ;)

Used a triangle die to cut the paint chips. Added the funny face and arm - stamps by YNS (Your Next Stamp). Punched the speech bubble and added the tiny sentiment (Papertrey). I strung some gold thread with sequins and wrapped it around the front tree - needed some ornaments - after all its a Christmas Tree! I mounted it on a wood colored PP with foam tape. Dry embossed the  back panel (Papertrey)

Hope to see you at MCV!

Could you get any more clever?...I think not! What a darling concept...and with paint chips. Good way to recycle and save $$$ at the same time. The card is completely charming. I LOVE IT!!!

Was für eine geniale Idee für den Einsatz von Farbmusterstreifen! Und dein Weihnachtsbaum ist so was von niedlich. So einen hätte ich dieses Jahr auch gerne im Wohnzimmer stehen.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
