Christmas is right around the corner with Graphic 45


It may not seem like it, but now is the season to start those Christmas cards and projects.  Graphic 45 makes that super easy with their latest collection release " Twas the Night Before Christmas".  Of course it brings that vintage flair that G45 is known for to all of your projects. 
Today is a card I created for Graphic 45 and it full of lots of layers.  I fussy cut out the holly leaves and then layered them back up with foam tape for a lot of dimension. 

I always like to sew with a sewing machine around my cards...I think it just gives that extra touch of detail and another layer of interest. 

Don't forget to include decoration on the interior of your cards.  It's just as important for the receiver to be thrilled when they open the card as when they open the envelope. 

Be sure to hop over to Graphic 45's Blog today and see more beautiful projects created by the design team using "Twas the Night Before Christmas"  and I'll see you on Friday.

Keep Calm and Wine On with Hampton Art

I love all the Keep Calm slogans and this one is super cute from Hampton Art.  I paired it up with a background stamp of wine and liquor bottles that was stamped in a burgundy ink. 

I really like the wine glasses that create charms on the ribbon...and of course I had to highlight with ink so it looks like the wine is still sitting in the glass.
