Stamps: Merry Patterns
Ink: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Paper: Cherry Cobbler (base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4, another piece on top (4 X 5 1/4), Merry Little Christmas DSP (2 X 5 1/4), scraps of Whisper White & Old Olive
Accessories: Sparkle Embossing Folder, Layering Ovals Framelits, 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon- Old Olive, Wink of Stella for candle flames
Tips: I stamped off one of the candle stamps, but they’re all actually cherry cobbler. Except that one of them didn’t stamp well, so I stamped it in Old Olive then fussy cut the candle out! I used the “masking technique” to cover the candles before stamping the greenery.
I haven’t even tried the deer stamp yet. I just remembered, I did try this set another time using the sentiment, “Tis the Season”. It looks like I did something really fancy, but the pink design in the middle is just a stamp!!
Here’s a fun Sketch Challenge from the SSINK Team! I love these challenges because they force me to come up with my own ideas. Give it a try!!
To make this card, I basically started with some stamp sets I’d been wanting to play with: Merry Patterns & Christmas Sweaters! The Merry Patterns Set can only be earned by placing a $300 order through the end of October!! Let me know if you have a big Wish List or would like to host a party! I chose the colors by looking at the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 DSP. That’s a simple way to choose a color combo guaranteed to look great!
I don’t get a lot of use out of my sweaters here on Maui. But my daughter, Malia, is spending her first winter in Syracuse, NY, where I hear it gets mighty cold! She’s already made a request for sweater money.
Here’s a close up of that cute sweater…
