Alas, this Beauty of the Season is not about me. Sigh. Instead, it’s about a gorgeous new holiday stamp that will be available in the new mini catalog and also for purchase on August 28th. The good news is that it is, in fact, available as an early release to all customers right now, so if you are anxious to get a head start on your holiday cards or even your holiday shopping, now’s a good time.
And don’t forget that July 31 is the last day to get your freebies on! Buy 3 Designer Series Paper Packs and get 1 free! Buy 6 and get 2, and so on.
So here’s my little birdie:
I just wanted to go with a very clean and simple design for this one, so I just stamped the image in black and used a teeny bit of red sparkly stuff on the berries. For a bit of flair I added a few sequins in gold. I also wanted to be a bit more creative with the inside of the card, so I cut and mounted the sentiment and stamped the smaller branch image in a couple of places.
I’m not really very good at random acts of, well, randomness, and I always struggle with how many and where to place the embellishments. Even after all these years of crafting! Some things just come naturally to some people, the rest of us are envious!
Here are the supplies you can get for yourself:
