If there was one item in the catalog that made me jump up and down like a jumping bean, it was this…the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and Framelits Dies! As soon as you open the Holiday Mini Catalog, you see it, so that was it for me. Once I laid my eyes on this gorgeousness, I could have stopped there.
But, phew! Thank goodness I didn’t because there are so many other wonderful things in the mini.
Today’s card came about because Jeanie, a StampNation member, asked me about brayering. I haven’t done a ton of brayering. I actually have found it a bit intimidating.
But part of the point of StampNation is to take your paper crafting to the next level…so I decided to go for it! I spent hours on Sunday and Monday teaching myself and experimenting. I’m still playing and learning, and I hope I will inspire you to do the same!
The video for this card will be the 222nd video on StampNation, and it’s part of the Virtual Holiday Open House. This video also shows my creative process, because I went through several different "ornament options" before I got the look I wanted!
