Christmas Wreath

How are you doing with your Christmas Lists?  Mine keeps growing and nothing seems to get scratched off. I have to start concentrating on one task at a time and then get it finished.

Writing lists, though, is a good way to keep on track.  Often my lists are in self-defense so that I don't have to pack that information around in my mind.  Sometimes our minds get packed so full of information, that we end up forgetting something.  And it could be a big something that we forget.

So get writing those lists today and you will find that your mind gets more restful until another thing pops into it.

Here is a Christmas card that was easily and quickly put together.  It's about trying to use our stamps for something else than what they were intended.

Christmas Wreath - Day Dream Medallions

Stamps: Daydream Medallions (c – 126467, w – 126465 p. 117 2012-2013 AC), Greetings of the Season (c - 128033 w- 128030 p.6 2012 Holiday Catalogue)
Paper: Natural White, Whisper White, Real Red, Red Glimmer Paper, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Ink: Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Owl Punch, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon (retired)

 I turned the Daydream Medallion stamp into a wreath by using the medium size and the small size stamps.  The medium sized stamp was used first and then off-set and stamped again.  (Don' reink before stamping the 2nd time)  The small sized stamp was inked and stamped inside of the first image, and again off-set and stamped again.  (Again, don't reink the stamp)

The rest of the card is pretty straight forward.

Have fun coming up with ways to use your stamps and other products.

Leave and comments and let me know what you dream up. 

Is your paper crafting wish list bigger than your bank account?

Do you live in an area where you don't have access to a stamping club?
