Joy in Jesus



Good morning!  We have a new sketch for you at From the Heart Stamps, along with a twist...Use Heat Embossing.  Here's the sketch:


I used one of Faith's cute snowmen and made a Christmas card for my stash.  I've colored the snowman with pencils and accented his hat and pocket with white glitter, along with adding glitter to his body, the stars, and the word "Joy".  Instead of a sentiment panel, I've printed the sentiment on the patterned paper; it's pretty easy to do, just measure carefully!  I put the banner behind the image and embellished with die cut snowflakes and buttons.  (In real life the buttons are a perfect match with the purple paper.  Does anyone know why the color of the buttons is "off" in the photograph?  Ugh...so frustrating!  This happens to me sometimes...not sure why.)
