Getting ready for Christmas Fair Markets!

Just thought I'd quickly share this card design which I will have for sale at the coming Christmas markets:
October 28 Biloela
November 17/18 Emerald

I knew I had to have this set as soon as I saw it.
It's called "Half full"  and has lots of sentiments suitable for all year around, but the Christmas sentiment is perfect. I have a striking Christmas apron with the same words which I've had for many years. So the set was a no brainer for me.

I purchased an extra bottle of the fine tip glue pen and coloured some glue with a few drops of So Saffron. The image is stamped in Basic Gray and then coloured with the glue. You just need to let it dry overnight. It adds just the right amount of dimension.
And again I prefer to stamp the sentiment onto a scrap and punch it out to avoid stamping crooked images on the "good copy". In this case the 1" and 11/4" were perfect.

I used markers to get the 2 different inks onto the final stamps, and mounted both stamps on the one clear block so they stayed in just the right spot.. The precut and scored Note cards and Envelopes are great value and they mean that you can whip up lots of these cards quite quickly

This is an earlier design using Crumb Cake card bases and glasses stamped on Vanilla cardstock.

I might even need a glass or 2 very soon!!!!

Have a creative week! 

Thanks for looking, and remember
