Wplus9~Drummer Boy

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.

  2. No wonder an artist like you would be excited over a stamp release. Your art speaks for it self. The cards are beautiful, if they are for sale do let me know.
