Holiday Wishes

After the big PTI release party tonight, I was inspired to pull out my new Tree Trimming Trio stamp set. I was happy to also use some new SU patterned paper and the yummy Alpine ribbon.

Notice the sentiment? It's part of a larger one. Because the stamps are acrylic, you can bend them before putting them on the stamp block. So I curved the sentiment, inked up the first word, and stamped it (I had to use my Blender Pen to wipe off the ink on the neighbouring letters first). I did the same with the second word. I wish I could say that I measured it to fit perfectly in the wide oval punch, but that was pure chance. I was aiming for a circle punch, but I actually like it better with the oval!

Stamps: Tree Trimming Trio (PTI)
Paper: Read Red, Very Vanilla cardstock, Merry Moments DSP (SU), brown textured cardstock (Bazzil)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU), Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado (Palette)
Accessories: 1/2" circle punch, Wide Oval punch, Blender Pen, Alpine ribbon (SU), sewing machine (Janome)
