Blast From the Past

I am a fairly new user of stamps from Taylored Expressions but just love their creativity, signed up for the newsletter and saw there was a blog hop! Who doesn't love a good hop, right?!? Anyway, when I saw that the hop for October was a "blast from the past" with a Christmas/holiday theme, I thought it was the perfect excuse to get a new stamp set and participate! If you just happened by my blog, look to the bottom of the post to start from the beginning!

I remember seeing some projects last year around blog land that used the Christmas Blessings set and I've loved it ever since I first laid eyes on it. The images and the sentiments ring so true for me and are a great reminder of what Christmas is all about! "Wise men still seek Him" is one of my favorite expressions I had to use it! I embossed the manger image in gold over beautiful Webster's Pages papers. If you look closely at the burgundy paper, you can see where it says "a child a child, sleeping in the night...He will bring us goodness and light." Very cool! I finished the card with a lovely crinkle ribbon tied with a wee jingle bell.




Supplies: Stamps - Christmas Blessings (TE), DP - Waiting for Santa (Webster's Pages), Ink - Versamark, Basic Black (SU!), Embossing Powder (SU!), Bell (Michaels), Crinkle Ribbon (Etsy)
