Joy

The Christmas season is upon us,
which is why I was so excited to see that Sarah G. selected
the code word JOY for Challenge # 78 at Addicted To CAS.
 
You can check out the design team cards and join in the challenge HERE.
 
 
 
I fell in love with this Joy Stamp & Cut set from Hero Arts when I first saw it, however
every place I tried to order it said it was out of stock...so frustrating.
While I was still moaning and groaning about not being able to get it,
my darling daughter Jennifer found it at scrapbook.com and had it sent to me as
a early Christmas gift.  YEA!
Since this is a pretty simple design, I wanted to add some interest by adding dimension,
so I cut the word out of a foam sheet and one out of white sparkle paper.
maybe this will show better what I mean:
 
 
That's a lot easier than cutting four or five layers.
The little green holly leaves were cut the same way
using an Impression Obsession die (DIE023-X).
Then I colored the edges of the white foam with a green marker.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
'till next time,
Doni

  2. LOVE this design Doni! And your layering adds so much depth ... I have not used foam for that before and it does sound a lot easier than die-cutting several and gluing them together. Thanks! I'm off to try to find that beautiful stamp and die-set! :) xx
