Our fearless leader Mary says she never gets to send her Christmas cards before Christmas, so she has us do a challenge now to get ideas. I went with a super simple card again:
I used Serendipity Stamps: Holly from the Christmas Whimsey set (411M) and Simple Merry Christmas Small (1036B). Some how I had managed to miss the whimsey set before but I just love it... right up my alley. First I randomly stamped the holly on white cardstock, then I colored in the holly with Copic markers. I then mounted it all on a red cardstock base. I put diamond glaze on the berries, and stamped Merry Christmas on a small slip of red cardstock. I added white brads to the ends and adhered it with pop dots.
Simple and quick to get done at the last minute. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

This months challenge was Tea Time. We selected stamps with a tea theme and ran with it. I chose the Japanese Teapot with the side handle (636D). I stamped it multiple times on kraft cardstock, and matted it on black cardstock. I wrapped the card with black twine. Finally I stamped the teapot one more time and colored it red, and finished it off with liquid glass. When I attached it to the card I bent it a little so it cracked and gave it an older look.
Here is a close up of the teapot. I love how it turned out, and I see myself using this stamp a lot more.
