So I know I titled this Christmas, but let me just say that this would make a great Valentine or Birthday card too. I kept this card simple yet still elegant so that it could be mass produced for Christmas. The stamps are from Scrolls Work Stamps. I used 2557 Lady Flourish Silhouette #1, 7104 Sheet Music and 25 18 Letter Seals. I used gold detail embossing powder since the music sheet is so fine and the Musical Shape Paper Clip was purchased at Staples.

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a great day. Before I tell you about this card, I would like to thank the gals that showed up at my ustream class last night and put in a plug for the next class which will be held October 5th at 8PM Eastern Standard Time on laughingstamper channel. Okay, now that the shameless plug is over, I can give you some details about this project.
I used the same stamps as I did for the ATC (Artist Trading Card) in the previous post along with the pumpkin set and Happy Fall Phrase. I just brayered the background a little different and at a different angle. If you are looking for any of these stamps, you may find them here at Scrolls Work. The fence was the waste material from a fence that I cut out on my cricut using the Paper Dolls cartridge. I love to use the scraps! If you have any question, go ahead and leave me a comment and I will get back to you!

here. I will show you how I created this background using a brayer. All of the stamps used in this project are from Scrolls Work so you can check that out if you like any of these. The victorian haunted house and the bats are a reminder of my own house before the restoration began! Yikes! I hope to see you Tuesday night!

This is the side with the electricity and the pic was snapped last Sunday a week ago. We have begun to paint so maybe I'll show you a completed side, in the near future. Okay so it probably won't be totally complete this season because the soffit needs repaired and I doubt we will have time to do that along with getting the floor heat installed on the first floor of the main house this season. Whew! Anyway, I have been pulled in many directions lately and some days I don't know which end is up. Enjoy this beautiful fall weather and don't forget to get some scrappy time in too!

Scrolls Work this month. I used scarecrow 7503, old bird 1037. Then I put my brayer, sponge and die cut machine to work. I think it turned out great! I nearly forgot to mention that Michelle Zindorf was the inspiration for this piece. Let me know what are you creating as the air begins to chill and days shorten? It's your turn.

I finally finished this magazine holder that has been sitting on my desk for three weeks. I took a simple cardboard holder and turned it into this. I was going for an antique book sort of thing using Scrolls Work Stamps. Here is a video with a bit of information about the project and the specific stamps that I used and techniques involved in making this project. Enjoy!

I finally took a few minutes and stamped on some beads. You may find these stamps at Scrolls Works. I used a silver and gold paint pen to add a bit of pizazz to the edge of the flat beads. Here are a few pics and a short video. Let me know what you think.
