Just For Fun-Noel Christmas Card

Today I have a Christmas card using stamped images from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps to share with you. To create this card I used four stamps including the French Horn F2761, Pine Bough E2355, Holly Swag D2762 and Noel E2657. To start I made a label die cut using Labels Eight S5-019 die template along with the Wizard from Spellbinders. I stamped the French Horn image onto the die cut with gold pigment ink, added gold embossing powder and heat set. Then I made a mask of the French Horn. If you have never made a mask you simply stamp the image onto a light weight paper (printer paper or post-it notes work great) and then you cut it out. I like to cut a little smaller than the actual image. I use a 2-way glue pen on the backside of the mask and wait for the glue to dry were it is just slightly sticky, place it on top of the image you have stamped and then you can stamp over top of the image and add other images. I stamped the Pine Boughs using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink from Tsukineko a couple of times and then removed the mask. I colored inside the French Horn using a Gold Spica Glitter Pen from Copic and I used Sketch Markers from Copic to color in the Pine. I also wanted to kind of soften up the die cut so I lightly applied Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo Distress Inks from Ranger. Then I stamped the Holly Swag using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink from Tsukineko a couple of times on a separate piece of cardstock, colored with Copic markers (listed below) and cut out the images. I layered the holly using foam tape to add some dimension. I also used Spica Glitter Pens, Sky Blue for the bow and Red for the berries on the Holly Swag.I stamped the sentiment Noel at the bottom of the card using gold pigment ink, gold embossing powder and then heat set. I also added some gold rhinestones to the bottom of the card and up on the top of the label die cut using Gem-Tac from Beacon Adhesives.Supplies~

On a more personal note I wanted to let all of you know last Friday my MIL was transferred to another hospital. She was doing so much better so they did some lab work and cultures over the weekend and had said that if all went well she would have surgery on Monday. I am happy to say she had the surgery yesterday and everything went wonderfully!! She had a pacemaker put back in. And if that wasn't good enough news she called this afternoon and she is on her way HOME!!!! OMGosh it is almost hard to believe the turn around she has made!!! It's the power of Prayer!!! Thank you again all so much for your continued prayers!!!
