Loads of Love at Christmas time

Don't you just love long weekends? Time to sleep in and extra time to craft, what more could a girl ask for?

Well ... perhaps the same thing every week ;-) Greedy aren't I?

I enjoyed a fun pub quiz (virtual) last night over at In Love With Stamping. Thanks to Emma for organising it. I showed my ignorance completely but it was great fun, with fast and furious questions and hitting the refresh button on my computer every few seconds to try to get the next question as quickly as possible. Look out for the next one.

I'm posting now and then I'm off out to take Bess to her socialisation class. Hope the weather is better where you are, I think we're going to get a bit wet today. Should make for an interesting drive back from the class, lol.

For this card I decided to dust off my Loads of Love set while I've got time for a bit of colouring. This set is reduced from £18.95 to £15.16 but there's only a few more days to take advantage of the two-step stamping discount offer. Email me at to order now.

Stamp sets: Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories, Time for a Tree
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, SU Markers, Versamark
DSP: Merry Moments
Other: White EP

An Old Olive side stair step card was backed with Merry Moments DSP for the base. The trees were coloured direct to stamp with markers, stamped out and then "washed over" with an aqua painter. These were cut out and adhered to the back step. Time for a Tree was wheeled onto Whisper White card with Basic Black ink and the truck, people and presents were stamped using the stamp-a-ma-jig for placement. These were all coloured using the markers and blender pens for shading. The truck was cut out and adhered to the middle step and the row of cars was cut out and adhered to the front step. Using Versamark, the sentiment was stamped onto Old Olive card and heat embossed with White EP. This was cut around and popped up on dimensionals on the side panel.

Here's the side view:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
