Sandy wrote: Your holiday cards are beautiful with the beautiful ribbon and bling. I usually make 40 to 60 cards, using several different designs and stamp sets. I’m way behind this year as I spent about 9 weeks earlier this summer in the hospital, but will do my best to make as many as I can! Happy card-making!
Congratulations Sandy! I’ll be sending you an email shortly to get your address and I’ll get your stamp set packed up and ready to ship out ASAP.
I used the Snow Day and More Merry Messages stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create a holiday card for the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #133.
I started by stamping the snowflake image from the Snow Day stamp set in Soft Sky ink on a Whisper White panel. Then I adhered the panel to a Soft Sky card base with SNAIL. Next, I stamped the snowman images (using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement) in Soft Sky, StazOn Jet Black, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored the hat image with Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on the panel (using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement also). I adhered the stamped snowman image to a Soft Sky panel with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Then I stamped the two sentiments in Soft Sky ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered the Happy Christmas sentiment to a Soft Sky strip with SNAIL, punched the end with the Hexagon Punch, then adhered it to the card front with SNAIL. I trimmed the warm wishes sentiment out with my Paper Snips, sponged the edges with Soft Sky ink and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL in the center and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the two ends. I finished the card front by by tying a piece of Natural Linen Thread through a Soft Sky button then adhering it to the card front with a Glue Dot.
I finished the inside of the card by stamping the sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set and the snowflake image in Soft Sky ink on a Whisper White panel.
