A Little Bit Festive and Stamp Giveaway!!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to another Friday's post with Steph. Every time, I look at the Crafter's Companion blog, I'm just amazed at how different every one's style is and how the same stamp can be used in so many different looks. It's just inspirational to me. Today, I'm sharing another clean and white card - clean and simple has always been my style but I'm so into white lately I keep churning these out without even thinking.

This image that I used is Sheena's latest release from A Little Bit Festive Line - perfect for Christmas. I stamped the image on the card base itself, colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers, added glossy accents on the leaves and Stickles on the berries. The card sides were notched with my eyelet punches just below the image and embellished with twine, knotted at various intervals. Sentiment was also from the same Sheena Douglass line.  I die cut it out and mounted it just below the colored image with my 3D foam tape.

I hope you find some time to craft now that the kids are back at school!  If you want a little inspiration go over to our Challenge blog and check out this month's challenge.  If you join in you might be the  lucky winner of the grand prize of a $30 gift certificate to the Crafter's Companion online store!!
