Season of Joy
Hi All!! I've been busy with some card orders, but I wanted to post a card I did 2 weeks ago and forgot to post. I hope you're all having a good weekend. I LOVE weekends! DH doesn't work & I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn with him! YAY!! LOL I digress...back to stampin...
This time I dug out the Stampin Up! stamp set, Season of Joy. This was a very, very simple card. I think you'll like it, it can be done relatively quickly. All products are by Stampin Up! I started with a card base of Old Olive cardstock, followed with a layer of Chocolate Chip c/s. My next layer is a left over green printed paper from the Cast a Spell Designer Series Paper. (I love that they are double sided and so versatile!) I cut a strip of chocolate chip c/s and place it horizontily across the middle of the card. I used my White Gel Pen to add white lines on it. Next, I added a piece of last year's beautiful chocolate chip satin ribbon. I just loved that ribbon and was delighted that I had a little left!!
I added a square of whisper white c/s that I pierced along the outside edge of it.
Next I added a square of chocolate chip c/s. Lastly I stamped the focal point of the card on whisper white. The inks and markers I used were red, chocolate chip and old olive. On the close up I think you can see that I cut out and pop-dotted the three poinsettia's, the snowflake and the "and" sign. You can't see it, but I added glitter, Irridescent Ice, to the tree, snowflake and the centers of the flowers.
Thank you so much for coming to my BLOG and I do hope I've inspired you. Please take a few minutes and leave a comment if you like, I love hearing from you all.
And just to make you smile, I've added a couple pictures of my sweet Abbi girl taking a snooze. It was quite cool in the afternoon and she was shivering, so I put her sweater on her. Half an hour later here she is....just a snoozin and toasty warm!!! Enjoy!
I hope the rest of your weekend is good and I hope you have some time to yourself and that you get to stamp. Take care!!
