a jolly little set

For awhile, I was doing so well! I had this plan: four Christmas cards a day. Sounds simple, right? Then why am I so far behind? Dang it, I guess I just have other stuff to do!  Oh well. Here's one of the sets of four I did manage to make -- and I really like it!

I stamped the background as one full sheet, using this awesome stamp from Purple Onion Designs (it's in the second row -- and Purple Onion is having their annual 25% off everything sale, so be sure to check their home page too!). The colors were inspired by the scraps of Basic Grey's Jovial collection sitting on my desk.

All the sentiments are from 7 Gypsies' Christmas set, and the masking tape is from them as well.

Thank goodness for dies and punches -- makes quick cards even quicker!

Little twiney buttons add a bit of dimension to each.

The background sheet is also sprayed with some khaki glimmer mist which, of course, shows up ever so much better in person!

Well, we'll see about getting back into the Christmas card groove! In the meantime, maybe a little scrapping is in order? The Scrap the Moments challenge runs through the 6th if you want in!

I'm off in search of more coffee. Have a great Friday!

Oohhh, Ang, that background kicks ass! I love it, almost too much. LOL The tag and tape layers are fabulous, too. Off to check out that sale!

What a great quartet of cards! I love that bg you created, and gives me an idea for one of my stamps. Not that buying more stamps is a bad thing... a sale you say? :P

Dear Ang,

Please get out of my head. I've been wanting this stamp for ages, but I never pictured it as an awesome background! Now I MUST HAVE IT.

I love your color fresh and fun!! That blue is fantastic!

These are so eye catching! That BG is fab and the little bits for the sentiment are perfect.
