Papertrey's Favorite Things



Hi everyone!

The Paper Players challenge this week is a sketch from Joanne:



I used one of my favorite stamps this Christmas from Papertrey called Favorite Things. I embossed it in white on some crumb paper and added some splatters with a toothbrush. I LOVE doing that!

Then I cut out an oval and a tree with some scraps of plaid paper, and added a snowflake and holly. I tied on my string and added an enamel dot in the center of the snowflake.




The second card was also made with some plaid scraps and crumb paper. I cut out 2 trees from Concord and 9th and embossed the sentiment from My Favorite Things In and Out Christmas in white onto the crumb tree. Then I cut it to fit on top of the plaid tree, and tied on a string.


I just have so much fun making Christmas cards...they are my very fave!

These are fantastic, Laurie! Adore the look of white embossing on Crumb Cake--such a great rustic look that coordinates perfectly with your pretty plaid paper. Fabulous use of the sketch too!

Where did you get the red enamel dots? I have the hardest time finding really red ones. And, I love both these cards. A great way to use up some pretty scrap paper. Thanks.

There's something about plaid that really says Christmas to me! These cards are lovely. They've got a warm and homey feel to them. And I love that you add splatters with a toothbrush! Great idea!

Laurie, I love the layering with the holly leaves behind the snowflake on the tree in the first card and your white paint splatters, and the colors of your paper are perfect! Such pretty cards!

Laurie I absolutely love both of your plaid and kraft creations! Love the white ink splatters, too. I've not tried your technique of using a toothbrush. Did you use craft ink? Would love to hear more...
