As one of three girls, I was immediately drawn to Stamping Bella’s Three Amigas stamp featuring three fashionistas celebrating the holidays.
I’m always on the look-out for stamps, cards and other items featuring three of anything – cats, dogs, babies – to give my mother. When we were little kids, she used to recite the “three little kittens” rhyme to us all the time. Now it’s a running joke to see what “three little kitten” item I will give her each year.
Of course, I had to create three versions of the same card, one for my mom and one each for my two sisters. I stamped them on watercolor paper and used Distress Markers to color them. Then I paper-pieced the outfits and switched them out for each version. One version uses Stampendous’ embossing powder in a sparkly blue around the edges and for the snow while another uses the pink version. The third one uses a clear sparkly embossing powder, so I lightly watercolored the background in blue to make it stand out.
I think they’re really cute, and I’m hopeful my family will love them.
