Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas for Sunday Stamps

I used the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas stamp set to create my card for the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge this week.

Here is the sketch for Sunday Stamps SSC166.  Be sure to stop by the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the other design team members created and to play along too!

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Old Olive card stock with SNAIL, then wrapped a strand of Old Olive Baker’s Twine around it and tied a bow.  I adhered the layered panel to a Cherry Cobbler card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the little trees from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I scribbled over them with the light and dark Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers and then cut them out with the small square from the Stitched  Shapes Framelits Dies.  I adhered the die cut squares to 1-3/8″ squares cut from Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive card stocks and then to the card front with SNAIL.

I stamped the sentiment from the Season to Sparkle stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut the sentiment out with a banner die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.  I added a Rhinestone to each tree to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment and tree from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green inks on a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.
