Inky Friends: Inking Up the Season: Wise Men from Afar

Image may contain: text

Welcome! Another round of blog hopping with My Inky Friends! You may have come to me from Cindy showcasing Quilted Christmas or you could have found me through Rhonda displaying Night in Bethlehem. Either way works for me! We are all linked together so you can't get too lost but if you do, you can see the list of the blogs HERE.

I have been MIA lately from crafting and blogging. My daughter's marriage was a big deal and the school year has been interesting so far. (It's kicking my butt at the moment!) I was excited to be "forced" to create something for this hop! It came at the perfect time to get me back to my stamping room.

This first card isn't quite the way I pictured it but it still turned out nice. (I think the tree needs to be stamped on the white a little higher so you can see it more.) The card on the left has a plain background while the one on the right has Burlap stamped on it (as well as a smudge from my finger, UGH!). They both have Wink of Stella on the star and the gifts.

The second set of cards are rather plain in my opinion but I wasn't sure what to do to jazz them up. What would you do with them? Embossing folder? Background stamp? Ribbon? Rhinestones? I do like them otherwise! Fun thing, they were suppose to be the same but I was using scraps of the silver and the silver for the card of the left was just a bit too short to show up under the wisemen, so I lowered the banners. Not sure which way I like it best!

This last set of cards are very simple. I know that I need simple sometimes just to get some thing done! The differences between the Night of Navy cards and the Rich Razzleberry cards are minor. They feature different embossing folders, one set is silver the other gold and one has rhinestones, the other pearls.

That's what I came up with for this set. I know I had others ideas that I just couldn't get on paper in time for this hop. I also really want to make a set of scrapbook pages with this set too. I think the palms would make a great beach set of pages. Maybe I will have time soon!

What are you creating with this set? I would love to see! Now I am sending you off to see what Rhonda did with Night in Bethlehem!
