"Winter Scenes"



Welcome to MFP a Heinrich Co's last day at the hop!!!!!  Today's release is awesome with soooooo many ways to use this stamp set.  My first project is a set of note cards. I am not sure if this set is going to be a gift or if I am going to use them myself for notes! 

I was able to cut three cards size 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 from an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of MFP Premium white CS.  The music panels were cut 1 3/4 wide. I added some pretty lacey borders with a Martha Stewart border punch and  embellished!

In case I decide to keep them as notes for my use, I embellished each card to correspond with the date I will need to send a note to my daughter's chorus teacher.  

 December's embellishment is a snowman ornament.  I folded back the cord on the snowman so it can be popped off and used.  Fun find: I picked these up at Hobby Lobby in the "mini Christmas Tree" section.  They are sold 6 to a pack and  at half off they only cost me about 16 cents each!


January has a snowflake....where we live...snow?  Probably not...but a fun embellishment anyway.


February has .....hearts of course!!!!


My last card is a Christmas card for my husband!  I found this cute wooden banjo while we were in TN this October.  I stamped the holly using the small holly stamp from"Holly Jolly Greetings".
I ran out of time so I couldn't work on the inside of the card but I am going to put a black silhouette of a cat on the inside.  Our little Storm runs upstairs and plunks herself down to listen when my husband plays his banjo!!!! 


I just wanted to give you another view of this terrific stamp.   This is the stamped panel before adding the rest of the items to the card.  What I love about it is that I no longer have to search for just the right music sheet to match my project, I can make my own!   I can't wait to try a die cut from one of my own stamped music sheets!  

Thanks so much for choosing to spend some of  your time with me this week!   If you pop back tomorrow I will have inspiration for this week's Speedy Fox & Friends challenge! 

Just a Note
I am entering the collection of Note cards in Simon Says Stamp blog challenge - Anything Goes showcasing Martha Stewart (I used MS snowflake punch and MS border punch)

  21. This is really funny. My husband plays the banjo too and our big hound dog loves it. Infact if he thinks my husband should be practicing he lets him know it. Very pretty cards. The lacy sides are really nice looking with the music panels.
