April's CCC

I would love to add pictures with my post, but as mentioned before the computer only recognizes my camera when it feels. It didn't feel like it... this week. I used my kids' computer and uploaded some pictures to my webshots account. So, if you would please follow this link to my Webshots account you'll see pictures of my April Christmas Card Challege cards.

I used Stampin' Ups Bold Snowflake wheel on a 12X12 piece of off white paper. Bad idea, because I was using a stamp pad. I wanted the Chocolate chip color and don't have a wheel ink pad with that color. So, half the 12X12 had fainter stamping. Next time I'll roll each piece for each card to ensure a properly stamped image. Live and learn.

Next I sponged a caramel color ink around the edges of the stamped piece and the tag. Next I sponged on Moss Green to mostly the tag to make it stand out.

Then I found fiber and matting that looked good with the card. I taped it all together and really liked the outcome. Although how could I not seeing as I got the idea from Splitcoaststampers. When I saw it I knew I wanted to recreate it as best I could. I loved the nontraditional Christmas colors and I loved it even more that I owned all the ingredients. Didn't have to buy anything. I knew the couple things I didn't have like fiber I could get from my stash.
