I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Merry Christmas

Hi all,

I hope you've had a nice and relaxing weekend. I've been doing some crafty things, but not with paper, stamps and ink. This weekend, I made some mug rugs for birthday gifts. I drew my own coffee mug pattern, traced it onto some fabric and appliqu├ęd it to some canvas background fabric. I'll post some pictures at the end of my blog post, because, while I didn't do any stamping this weekend, I did do some on Friday to made a few challenge cards.

This one uses the current Freshly Made Sketch layout. I have to say, I love Jen's sketch this week! Here's what I came up with.



I took a little creative license and changed the small focal element from rectangle to circle because I wanted to use this star circle frame by Avery Elle, and because I think it works best with the little bear image, also Avery Elle. The patterned papers are Holiday papers from SU from last year.  After cutting out the circle star frame and the larger star in the upper corner, I covered the stars with a generous amount of Wink of Stella clear glitter. It looks great IRL. The bear is colored with Copics and cut with the corresponding set die.

Here is the inside. The bird is from the same Avery Elle set, but the sentiment is a very old Christmas stamp that I've had forever, and also one of my very favorite Christmas card greetings.



Here are the mug rugs that I made this weekend. They were super fun to craft!






Thanks for stopping by this afternoon. Have a wonderful week!
