Pile O Presents

I've been dying to get a chance to play with this stamp from Gina K. It waited patiently in line behind those Christmas cards of mine!

Its such a pretty image, perfect for my new favorite past-time watercoloring! This could be used for a birthday card with a happy birthday sentiment, but this time, I went for a big old pile of Christmas presents! I used watercolor paper with Mellow Moss and Ruby Red ink for this project, and finished off all the bows with my Sakura Stardust pen.

I used to have some Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon around here somewhere, but naptime isn't the time to fool around...its the time to make quick work! So, I subbed in some of the Kraft Taffeta ribbon which worked very nicely as well.

This gorgeous paper is Webster's Pages that I picked up at Verve Visual when Julee did a sale on Thanksgiving weekend. This paper is so rich!

I loved that the piece I selected for this card had a nice little empty space for me to tuck my sentiment into. How CONVENIENT!! I added an antique brad through the little snowflake for a little touch of detail.

I love wrapping the presents and tucking them under the tree, but really I think that is just too much to expect for my little one (2.5 years old) to not dig right in. So while I love watching the present pile grow under the tree, I'd rather not battle with the little guy for the next 15 days about when we can open the presents.
