Special Season Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge – Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Baked Brown Sugar.  When I saw these colors I immediately thought Christmas!  I know it’s a bit early to think about this holiday but I was so excited to use my new stamp set Special Season.  I was also inspired by a Christmas card created with this stamp set in the holiday catalog.

This Christmas Tree card was very easy to make.  I embossed the Baked Brown Sugar card base with the Northern Flurry embossing folder then added Dazzling Details to add sparkle.  I also added rhinestones for more bling.  I cut the Whisper White layer as a banner, stamped the Christmas tree image and sentiment.  To dress up the  Whisper White layer I made a bow with the Raspberry Ripple satin stitched ribbon and added a Frosted Finishes snowflake embellishment.  I colored the rhinestones for the tree with a Sharpie very similar to the Raspberry Ripple.  I’ve included a close-up photo of the Whisper White layer.  Super easy card!

Hand Stamped Sentiments From Simple to Wow Challenge #43

Sorry for the late post but this week as for many of you is a busy one.  With family staying with us and trying to be a good hostess sometimes some things fall a bit behind.  So on with this post.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we were to take a simple card from our gallery and Wow it up!  I selected a card I created last Christmas with the Snow Swirled stamp set.  Now that my card-making skills have improved I knew I could wow up this card.

The card on the left is my simple card from last year.  The second card is my wow card.  I added the Real Red layer then stamped the red Swirl Tree and on the Very Vanilla layer and ran it through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry Embossing folder, stamped a couple of red snowflakes, added the Dazzling Diamonds to the embossed snowflakes. Punched the corners with the ticket punch and embellished the tree with pearls.  I adhered the ribbon to the Very Vanilla layer before adhering it to the Real Red layer.  The sentiment is from the Short & Sweet stamp set.  I punched the Very Vanilla oval with the large punch and punched Real Red cardstock with the Scallop punch and adhered with glue dots to the Real Red grosgrain ribbon.
