Can’t Tie a Straight Bow

Like many other stampers, I look to other paper-crafters for design inspiration. Oftentimes, I don’t completely copy the card. Sometimes, I don’t have all the same stamps, papers, embellishments, or proper tools. Other times I don’t copy the card because I can’t tie straight bow worth a damn. People have tried to show me, but it just doesn’t stick. This is the case with the two cards below.


I just love this little penguin and the Christmas sweater light bulbs from the Making Every Day Bright set. The card that inspired me to make this one had a lovely red bow on the front. I used sparkly white washi tape to give it some flare instead.

Here is another card inspired by a fellow stamper’s creation. I didn’t have most of the supplies for this one, so my card looks quite different from the original. Again, the card is bow-free.


Stamps: Making Christmas Bright, Making Every Day Bright

Paper: Gray Granite, Mellow Moss, Festive Farmhouse DSP, Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper, Very Vanilla


Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape
