Warm Winter Wishes

From The Funkie Junkie



I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!! I did for sure! Since most of us have been eating and drinking our way through the holidays, Jenny Gropp, our hostess this week at Our Creative Corner, has challenged us to make a card with a food/drink theme. I flipped through my stamp image binder looking for food and found that I don't have many stamps of food images. I did find this adorable Whiff of Joy stamp that had never seen ink and thought it was a perfect time to use it. I actually had been wanting to use it before the winter season is over. I also had this (digital) round brush from a set called On the Edge, In the Round by Katie Pertiet from Designer Digitals that I had been wanting to use. I am not much on digis, but I really like her designs. The file came in black and I really didn't want black. I spent some time a week or so trying to change a digital stamp from black to another color in Photoshop Elements 7 and finally gave up. But this week, I was fortunate enough to be reading Faith's blog Delightful Inspiration and caught her post with tips on how to change the color of digital stamps. Thanks to Faith I was able to match up the digital image very closely to Sage Shadow. I also lucked out and found a free Verve digi. I changed the color to match up with the brush and printed it inside a smaller (resized) version of the brush. Later I decided to just cut the sentiment with a circle Nestie, but a little of the brush design remained around the outer edge - that is not a part of the Verve digi. The designer paper is retired SU and the snowflakes are Cuttlebug dies. A l ittle zigzag stitching and some tiny chocolate Kaiser pearls and this crad was ready to post.

After the gifts are unwrapped and the goodies gobbled down, I hope you'll take some time to stop by Our Creative Corner and the blogs of the other team members to see what delicious concoctions they have whipped up for your delectation.
