Holiday Card Workshop Card with updates.




Yesterday my buddies and I traveled to York,  Pa. for the fall Heirloom Convention. We have never been to this particular location. Not sure we will go back, every year the conventions get smaller and smaller, I recognize fewer and fewer folks.

Impression Obsession didn't disappointment though. I waited in line for 25 minutes to check out and it was worth it. I am beginning to see the draw of the big 6x6 background stamps. This particular snowflake background drew my eye and I knew I was going to have to stamp it in red.

I added my new "merry die" from Papertreyink, a few snowflakes and some bling and waa laaa one of my first holiday cards made with all new things.

Over at Just Add Ink the challenge this week is using something new. Well this card is all new so I am submitting it.

Oct. 30, 2012 update. The Holiday card workshop at Online classes with Jennifer Maguire and Kristina Werner is going on right now. You can still sign up and the classes are always excellent with many new techniques to learn and ideas to kick start your creativity. Lisa Spangler used a HA background stamp to create her holiday cards and it reminded me of this card I made a few weeks ago and i wanted to share it with my fellow students.

Take care all and happy creating!
