Dutch Dare Card Challenge time!

sim

This week was a hard one for me. No patterned paper! WHAT?!? I literally groaned when I saw the challenge. LOL I know...I'm such a baby!

I tried the whole background stamp thing..wasn't doing it for me. I tried the Cuttlebug background...not working for me! So I went ahead and tried a scene card.

I got these new stamps from All That Scraps so I decided to use those to make a Christmas scene. A very familiar to me Christmas scene. hehe

See this picture? Doesn't it strike a resemblance to the one on the card? hehe! Yes, that picture is of me. Probably Christmas 1975? My mom would know better when it was. When I saw those stamps at All That Scraps, I knew EXACTLY how I would fashion the first pair of footie jammies. Like these!

Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to click over to the Dutch Dare Card Challenges blog to get in on this week's challenge and blog candy!

What I used: C.C. Designs stamps from All That Scraps, SU CS, Memento ink, Copic markers. I paper pieced the outfit because I wanted it to have a bit of texture so I stamped the image on Yo-Yo Yellow, put some Versamark on my Linen Background stamp and stamped over it. I also used one of my Martha Stewart leaf punches (I don't have the cute one that looks like evergreen branches, so I used what I have...heh. I just love her punches....but I still need to find that other leaf one that I don't have), Shimmerz Paints were painted over the leaves to give it a bit of gleam as well as painted over the Christmas tree ornaments, added a few baubles and stuck it all down!
