Stamping 411 Challenge


Hey there! Happy Saturday to you all! Remember I said it was rainy earlier this week? Well, today it's back up to the high 80's! Crazy weather here. The sun is up, the sky is a beautiful blue with some billowy clouds, and the ocean looks awesome, AND I got to stamp, so I really can't complain! For today's card share, I eeked in some stamping time this morning to create a card for the Stamping 411 challenge. It's my first time to participate, so I was excited to give it a whirl. Here's the sketch - SSC121: This is another great layout with clean lines. I also love that the sketch itself was created in MDS - how fun is that! While I should be making more Halloween and Thanksgiving cards, I was inspired to create a Christmas card. Here's what I came up with: I've been using the Ornament punch and Delightful Decorations so much, that I had kind of forgotten about this fun set of cute ornaments from the Tree Trimming stamp set. Aren't these 2 ornaments cute? I dressed them up a little with the half pearls from the Pretties kit. I also used the Christmas Punch hostess set for my sentiment. Do you like the glittered tag I created? It's from the sizzlits called Lots of Tags. Fun, huh? Here's the complete recipe.

Hi Rose! I,too, am guilty of ignoring all of my Xmas sets since I received my Delightful Decorations set. I, too, found myself needing to get creative with some other sets! I love how you used the Tree Trimmings on this card. The glitter is perfect touch!
