Winter ATC trade

Here is my swap for the December ATC group I have been trading with.
This months theme was Winter. Since I'm trading with people from all over the United States I thought it would be fun to do something a little different. I wanted to make a card with a California Winter scene.
I love the Beach so I grabbed my Nautical stamp set and made a night beach scene. I sponged the sand with Oatmeal Cookie, Hazelnut Blend and Dark Roast. The night sky I used Beach Breeze, Beach Ball, Catalina Splash, and Denim Days. I stamped the seagul in Dark Roast and added a couple of our blue sequins with some of our Journey Twine to finish it off. Any of these things can be purchased at my Fun Stampers Journey store. You will find the link on my blog home page.

Festive Patterns Wreath

I can't believe how fast time is passing by.  Today I wanted to share with you a Christmas Wreath I made last month at the Carson Rubber Stamp Show.  With our special still going on you can get the supplies to make this beautiful wreath as well.  For every $50.00 you spend currently you can receive a package of our Festive Patterns paper. 

I really like the patterns in this pack.  It comes with 6 double sided pattern designs so you get 4 sheets of each design for a total of 24 sheets. Here are what the patterns look like.

With this package of paper you can make 2 wreaths.  Now keep in mind this is a Christmas wreath but you can make it with any of our pattern packs for what ever theme you need at the time.  Along with the pattern pack of paper I used some tulle and our Green Olive and Buttercream cardstock, Gold Silks, and stamped the image with our Merry Swirl ATS in Green Olive Ink. To finish it off I used my journey glaze with water in a spray bottle and sprinkled with Sparkle Dust.  If you are interested in making one please let me know and I would love to show you.

I hope you are having a fun time creating great gifts and cards for all your friends and family. Enjoy
