I had fun playing with this Hero Arts stamp


I had many ideas swirling around but knew that I wanted to do this one first:


[Everybody now]

Over the river and through the woods 
To Grandmother's house we go
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh 
Through white and drifted snow

Over the river and through the woods
Oh how the wind does blow
It stings the toes and bites the nose 
As over the ground we go


Ahhhhh...the joys of stamping!

I wanted that image to pop so instead of doing of ton of other stuff...I just die cut and embossed the background.  It's a great way to really make the image be the star of the show AND give your card some extra BAM.

Initially I was going to add the sentiment below but it just took too much of the front panel that I decided to pop it on the inside of the card...


It is from the Hero Arts

Magic of Christmas


I'll be back later on this week with another stampy Hero Arts project!

It is a very nice card. Balance with a great stamp.

It is unfortunate era.

CAT (textured)!
ah, that song is now in my head. Fortunately for you my house is like the mall, we are ready for Christmas. Not 100% ready as I am not allowing outdoor decorations until after Thanksgiving, but there is a Christmas village in the living room and the boys invited the neighbors over to see it - twice, once when first set up and then they had to come again when it was lit :>)

Helen F. said...
