Autum Days Christmas

Hello Stamping Friends:

How is everyone today. Hope you are keeping warm if you are in Canada and cool if you are in the States.

I have been busy in my stamp room, coming up with some new Christmas Cards.
The one that I have for you today is from the stamp set called Autumn Days. I just love these pine cones. I colored the stamp with SU markers. These markers are great for using multiple colors on a stamp. You just could not get the same coverage with stamp pads no matter how small. I used Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip to color the image.

The white card base is 4 1/4 square. I layered a 2" piece of Always Artichoke with a strip of Real Red that had been punched with out scallop border punch. I also added some paper piercing to the Always Artichoke piece.

I used my Nestabilities to make the scalloped circles in Chocolate Chip, Real Red and the white that I stamp the image on.

I used my stamp ma jig to make the greeting into two lines versus the one line that is on the stamp originally. I find I am using my stamp ma jig more and more to create these kind of images. If you don't have one you might want to put it on your wish list.

Thanks for looking and keep warm. LOL
