Merry & Bright


New Penny Black is in da house!

Woo to the Hoo!!!!

Absolutely fell in love with this brushstrokes stamp and had to have it!

How can something so simple be so lovely?!?

I paired the stamp with a bit of sheet music and a little stitching down the side.

A one layer card...not usually my thing but I love the results!!!

I love this stamp. At first, I thought, who needs another candle?? but when I saw the incredible work the designers did (and you), I had to buy it.
Can you add a bit more details on what colors you used for the candle? And I assume you stamped the candle after the music?
Thanks a bunch. Keep up the awesome work.

Penny, I just thought of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol when I saw this beautiful, vintage inspired card! The translucency of the candle gives against the sheet music gives the entire card a dreamlike quality. Love the way the stitched edge makes it feel like a bound music score too. Beautifully done! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!
