Hey everyone! Did I mention I'm currently obsessed with Wplus9 stamps and dies lately??? If you happened to watch my haul video, you already know what's coming...I wanted to jump up and down when I saw the Wplus9 holiday release of the Drummer Boy stamp set! I totally embarrassed myself going a bit crazy over a stamp set, lol. I had wanted a stamp set like this for so long, I thought I would have to draw it myself. Ok, in my defense...I have only been making cards for a little over two years. But, I do think it is so adorable, and I'm telling all of my crafty friends it's a must have! My first card I cut out an oval window, so the night sky would show through. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I used the companion dies to cut the images out and adhered them to the desert landscape. I popped some of the images up with foam tape.
I had so much fun with this set, I had to keep playing! So, for my second card I combined Drummer Boy with Wishing You. I used Distress Inks to create this simple card, and just did a bit of masking. I masked off a section to highlight where the star would shine down on the town of Bethlehem. Then I made the sky sparkle with some embossed stars and Perfect Pearls. I'm so happy I picked up this Drummer Boy set before it sold out. All I need to be happy now is a star of Bethlehem Star Die! If anyone has I seen one, please let me know.
