Welcome to the November Control Freak Stampers Blog Tour! You may have arrived from Kelly Acheson, her projects are always fantastic! This month the theme is “Happy Holidays” so we’re all creating Stampin’ Up! projects with a holiday theme.
I borrowed a little inspiration from the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog for this card. I kept some of the features from the card that they showcased in the catalog with the Holly Jolly Layers host exclusive stamp set but I switched the orientation as well as some of the layers, colors and embellishments.
Stamps: Holly Jolly Layers stamp set
Tools: Layering Circles Framelits Dies, 1-3/8″ Circle Punch, Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies, Big Shot
Ink: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobbler card stock, Basic Black card stock, Very Vanilla card stock, Gold Foil Sheets
Embellishments: Metallic Enamel Shapes, Gold Metallic Thread, Gold 1/4″ Natural Trim, Stampin’ Dimensionals, SNAIL, Glue Dots
For my second project I used the Greetings from Santa stamp set and Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies Bundle along with the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies to create a quick Santa card.
Stamps: Greetings from Santa bundle
Tools: Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies, Heat Tool, Big Shot
Paper: Cherry Cobbler card stock, Garden Green card stock, Very Vanilla card stock
