You are the best (Happy Wishes SAB)

This card with the Happy Wishes Stamp Set was such a hoot to make. Re-discovering my Timeless Textures Stamp Set has been the best thing. The two sets work so well together.

This is the sketch this week from My Favorite Things my card was based on.

Ornamental Pines

The Ornamental Pines Stamp Set is today’s 2-4-Tuesday stamp set.

For this first card I tried to push myself away from the traditional Christmas colors using Strawberry Slush Cardstock and Pool Party Cardstock instead as my frames around the Silver Heat-Embossed stamp on the Whisper White Cardstock.

I added a strip of Silver Foil Paper which I punched with Confetti Stars. Over the half-way mark of this punching I’ve adhered with Stampin Dimensionals a sentiment stamped on Pool Party Cardstock in Pool Party Classic Ink from the Merry Everything Stamp Set then punched with the Note Tag Punch.

As tempting as it was to emboss the pine-needles again for this second card I resisted the urge, choosing instead to only Silver Heat-Emboss the pine-cones onto the Always Artichoke Classic Ink stamped needles.

A Silver Glimmer Paper strip edged either side with 1/8″ Real Red Ribbon really popped against the background of Very Vanilla Cardstock. The sentiment was die-cut from the Window Frames Collection Framelits then edged with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

All is Calm when Quick and Easy

For today’s card the dry-embossed Filigree Frame in Coastal Cabana sitting on my desk was my starting point.

I was then determined to use the All is Calm Designer Washi Tape along with the Tree Punch. Silver Foil Stars left over from yesterday’s card along with a sentiment stamped in Coastal Cabana Classic Ink was added. A light sponge of Silver Metallic Ink was the final touch.

Santa Stache

After all the fun I had creating the tree ornaments with the Santa Stache Stamp Set last week, I’ve chosen it for this week’s 2-4-Tuesday cards.

Santa was my first choice and I couldn’t resist using snowflakes from the Under the Tree Specialty DSP (I wish I could buy a dozen sheets of JUST this) as his background, with red snowflakes from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack under those with Old Olive Cardstock as the final border.

Initially I die-cut just the Mustache Framelit from the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper but I couldn’t stop there. I then punched a scallop circle of Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper for Santa’s beard!

For the next card I went with more snowflakes from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack for under the Nutcracker but I also stamped “nutty or nice” over the Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock background. This card also gave me the opportunity to use the All is Calm Snowflake Embellishments as charms!

Bermuda Bay Mojo

Another Monday another Mojo Monday. Here is my card for this week’s challenge.

Mojo363 - Bermuda Bay - JIF

This is the sketch from Mojo Monday.

A pattern from the Confetti Celebration DSP was my starting point with Bermuda Bay Cardstock as the anchor at the bottom which I mistakenly didn’t stamp with Gorgeous Grunge in Bermuda Classic Ink until AFTER I’d adhered it. Yikes!

Silver Foil Paper was used with the Argyle Embossing Folder to give some dimension to it. The Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper SHOULD have been corner punched on all four corner but once again forgot to do this until AFTER I’d adhered it. Double yikes!

Wondering what I could do and use as a sentiment, A Happy Hooray Stamp Set became the perfect choice with the round sentiment which was die-cut then edged in Dazzling Diamond Glitter. Underneath this sentiment is White 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon and 1/8″ Silver Ribbon.
