Another VERY early morning for me. As always I sit at the computer and stamp too. I finished this Edwiwn yesterday, another Christmas card. If I'm to send these out for Christmas I need to scale things down a bit. Make them smaller, otherwise it is going to cost me a fortune. I'm also looking for a handmade by stamp with my address on it. Anyone know where I can get one of those??
Well on to the card...I started with a White base, stitched on some DP, then stitched on some real red from Stampin Up, colored Edwin with Copic Markers, colored in a poinsettia from Penny Black. Both images were popped up with dimensionals. I added diamond stickles to the fur trim on Edwin for a little added bling. All of the stitching was done by hand (no room yet for my sewing machine, that is going to change though). I added some gems to three corners. Very simple but I like it!!
I am in the process of cleaning out my stamp area so that I can put my sewing machine on the table full time. :) I love to stitch on my cards and this hand stitching is getting old real fast!! My daughter also has a project she needs to do with the sewing machine so this is just the push I needed to get it cleaned up and sorted through.
I received more Copics in the mail from Rusty over at Oozak. I just love that place. They are not only for Copics either. They have a ton of stamping/scrapping stuff. Check it out. I almost have the complete set of Ciao Markers. Awesome!! I think I have 10 more markers to purchase to complete the Ciao set. Storage is a problem for me. I need something that is able to be taken from place to place with me, yet be good at home too. Any suggestions?? Hope you all have a great day!! Keep Safe, Keep Warm, Keep Smiling!!
