Prickly "Pair"

Good morning! Today I am showing one of my favorite cards from ths release that I shared at our party, showcasing Theresa Momber's Peace and Joy and my Fabulous Frame (back in stock, but not for long!) and new Fabulous Holiday Fillers set.  I stamped the pine cone image into the Fabulous Frame and then added some of the new Fabulous Holiday Fillers. I thought the points in the pinking borders (stamped in Dark Chocolate) went really well with the petals of the cone and needles.  Doesn't that look *so sharp* across the top and bottom?!  I love this new border!  Love! I filled in the belly bands with these new ones from the Holiday Fillers set stamped in Grass Green and added the smaller plaid circle inside, again in Dark Chocolate.  I prefer the smaller circles in this belly band to give you that little ring in between the colors.  Just love how masculine all these pieces are, work for so many designs, but then also can go completely flirty and feminine with different color or focal points.  Base is GKD Pure Luxury Prickly Pear. This golden cardstock is so gorgeous for the fall and winter holidays! I colored the borders with Spectrum Noir EB3 and DG3, and stamped the sentiments from Fabulous Holiday Fillers above, thinking this card was perfect for my dad and stepmom.

I want to point out I made a little boo boo in my stamping here, can you spot it?  On the left above the oval, I was off a bit stamping the border.  The fix was to pick up just a little ink with a blender pen from the Dark Chocolate pad I'd stamped the border in and filled in underneath. In real life you wouldn't notice it at all unless I were to point it out!  (Which I wouldn't.  This is just between you and me.) To prevent getting off though with the borders,  you can lay our border down on your already stamped frame and then press your block to it, and then ink it and stamp, this way your border will be really lined up well with the frame you are about to stamp into. :)

Have a terrific day! 

PS   Pssst.  Fabulous Frame Fillers stock is very low, too, after yesterday's video.  Don't miss it!

Maybe I'm just not understanding, but when you say "To prevent getting off though with the borders, you can lay our border down on your already stamped frame and then press your block to it, and then ink it and stamp, this way your border will be really lined up well with the frame you are about to stamp into." when you pick the stamp up to ink it, how do you get it back down in the same place? Sorry to be so dense, but I have all 3 sets and love them, I just can't get them to line up.

Gorgeous! Love these sets so much!
Boo-boo's or not, it is all good. I fix stuff all the time. I think that is the fun part, being able to rescue a card. OR, if totally too big of a mishap, I can fussy cut and save some bits, for another card. Right?
You are so amazingly talented, and I love all your sharing.
You ROCK!!!
