last week . . . .

I was the lucky winner of the cutest set of stamps from Claudine Hellmuth. Included in the set is a gingerbread man, a string of lights, a car with presents stacked on top.   Her retro style is so unique.  I actually took a class from her at CHA a few summers ago.  She is a beautiful gal, inside and out. 

Here is a card I made with some of the stamps in the set:


Isn't that chubby little bird adorable??  The trees, bird and stars were stamped on Basic Grey patterned paper and cut out.  More patterned paper was adhered across the bottom of the dry embossed card.  Stardust Stickles glitter was then added.

Thanks to Claudine for a fun set of stamps!

Winner, winner, you've got shimmer! I love how you used these stamps for this wintery scene, Joy. And, yes, that bird is a heart-stealer! Great job and sweet design.

The paper pieced trees with their festive designs are fabulous against the dry embossed background. Great red glittery strip too!
