Sunday Stamping - Christmas Memories

Good Morning!
 It's Lisa here to share a Project Life card that I created using Brush Grunge Alpha and the Cherish Simple Sentiments sets. One of the great things about Honey Bee Stamps is that you can mix and match the sentiments to create your own titles!


For this card I used the Spellbinders "Build a Wreath" die set. I ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot three separate times to get the "Layers" of the wreath.
I used regular Kelly green cardstock from Michaels. Once I had all of the pieces cut for the wreath, I used Memento Cottage Ivy Ink and Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters to add shading to the cardstock.


I added red Stickles to look like berries & tied a bow for the bottom of the wreath. I then used the Brush Grunge Alpha to stamp Christmas.


I inked up the stamps & stamped once on scratch paper, then stamped on my cardstock. This gave it a little more distressed appearance. I did the same process with the word moments from the Cherish Simple Sentiments set.
Using an old paint brush, I inked it up with the same memento ink that I used for the stamping to add color to the white cardstock. I think it added a bit more dimension.


I hope you were inspired to get Christmas started! I am already working on things for my December Daily.
Happy Sunday!
