Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

A Purr'fect Christmas

Today I have another of Ian Hallow's "Mulberry Wood" images to share with you.  This one is called "Purr'fect Christmas" and it would be great for the cat lover on your card list.
I was loving doing the snowy scene in the middle of this 100 degree Midwest heat wave.  Plus it was an excuse to use glitter again, LOL ;-) Finally the weatherman predicts the heat will break tomorrow. 

I stamped the image and greeting onto white card stock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  When I stamped the greeting, I was sure to leave enough room to add a ribbon.  I used red glitter on the garland, and liberally applied Tulip snow and ultrafine glitter on the ground and dots for snowflakes.

I corner punched the top edges, and used a scallop punch on the bottom.  I had folded the white card base as a top fold, specifically so that I could do a scalloped bottom edge.  The white layer was then layered onto green, which I also scalloped, and then on to the white card base, again scalloped.


  1. WOW!!! Love it so much I'm purring!!!
