WELCOME BACK! How’s it going with making all those holiday cards? As usual, I’m way behind, but I’m working my way through my stash of stamps that I never got around to using. Since we live in such a small house, I have to purge belongings – including craft supplies – on a regular basis. So I tend to hold onto holiday stamps because my chances of reusing them is pretty good. Christmas cards really are my favorite to make, but I need to get moving on making holiday cards so that I’ll have enough to send out this year.
COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS DAY 2019
I have another simple card featuring a digital stamp – Christmas Snowman – by Lili of the Valley. If you like simple but cute images, take a look at their Etsy shop. LOTV formerly sold rubber stamps, but they stopped several months ago and have been making their images available in digital format on Etsy. If you don’t know how to use a digital stamp, take a look at this article by my Power Poppy teammate Julie Koerber for guidance.
Hmm . . . perhaps I should have prefaced that with ENABLER ALERT!
No video today since I colored this image before I got into the swing of recording. But the coloring is super simple and you can follow the shading in the illustration below if you need some help. See the supply list below for the Copic colors.
