Basic Grey Christmas!


It seems to me that the Christmas craziness has begun early this year - the week's seem to be racing ahead and there's sooo much to do!! I saw my DD off to schoolies today, have a weekend of stamping away coming up - and relatives arriving for Christmas in less than 2 weeks - aaagh!!! I think the one sanity in my life is my crafting!!! And since it's Wednesday today I get to play over at The Stamp Spot Blog - LOL.

Have you noticed - NO COLOURING!! And virtually NO STAMPING either!!! But with these gorgeous Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers it would be silly NOT to make them the feature event! I love these papers sooo much I picked up the whole paper pad from The Stamp Spot Online Store early on! This little village scene is soo cute, and combine it with the cuttlebug ornaments embossing folder it makes a fairly quick and easy card - which still has a bit of a wow factor! So remember to look at your DPs as main images and not just for backgrounds - and with all the fabulous papers Marcia has instore at The Stamp Spot I'm sure there's something for everyone!! The snowflake is a Spellbinders die - I'm just LOVING this die!!

Beautiful card Debbie. Love the DSP...is it a new BG DSP, or is it an older one (ie can you still buy it)?

Also love the CB folder...looks strangely familiar ;-)....guess we both have good taste eh?

Okay, now I'm starting to panic! According to the ticker on your sidebar, there are only 30 days until Christmas. Holy mackerel, how the heck did that happen???

Gorgeous card, dear friend. Yes, using the DP as the focal is a great idea... as is your use of the CB folder. I LOVE IT! And I love the way you created the snow banks with torn paper. You are too clever!

I sure wish I could go on the stamp retreat with you. Have a pile of fun!

Lots of love and hugs,
Lisa

Simply stunning! The white embossing looks fantastic against those beautiful papers. I know what you mean about feeling like time is going too quickly, never enough time........

Jean McKenzie said...

Beautiful card Debbie. Clever how you have made the snow scene. I too love those papers and you were smart to have bought the whole collection early on. They seem to only be available as single sheets now and some have sold out!!
