Starlight meets Swirly Scribbles

This card combines Swirly Scribbles Thinlits with the 
Starlight Thinlits, both found on page 216.   They are
layered on the Bundle of Love Specialty Paper on page 189, 
to take advantage of all of that wonderful golden bling.

Color Me Happy with Lift Me Up

Here's one more Color Me Happy card.  I colored the
image with Stampin' Blends and added the sentiment
from Lift Me Up on page 58.  This layer was place on
a piece of Color Theory DSP (page 187).

Hope that you have a happy Monday!

Watercolor Christmas with Snowflakes

I love the Watercolor Christmas set on page 34 of the
Holiday catalog.  It coordinates with a Project Kit, but
I often look at these coordinating products as separate
components, because they can work well separately, too.

This is all Copper, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  I'm pretty
partial to Copper and snowflakes.  These snowflakes, made out
of Copper Foil Sheets (p 194), come from the 
Seasonal Layers Thinlits on page 216.  I like the fact that
these Thinlits offer 3 different sizes of snowflakes, 
so that you have options for any Christmas card.

Lift Me Up Cookie Cutter Santa

First off, don't ask me how I came up with this card.
I was shuffling through my sets and for some reason,
the Lift Me Up set (p 58) paired itself with Cookie Cutter
Christmas (p 116).   Like if the reindeer go on strike, 
Santa can parachute into town.  At least that's the story
and I'm sticking to it.

Santa was colored with the new Stampin' Blends (LOVE) and
layered on to some Only Olive Color Theory DSP (p 187).
The Seasonal Layers Thinlits (p 216) snowflakes were
made with Silver Foil (p 194).  The candy dots were
colored with a silver Sharpie to coordinate with the snowflakes

Painted Harvest Christmas Wreath

I am overjoyed because Painted Harvest, on page 49 of the Holiday catalog will carry over to the upcoming 2018-19 annual
catalog. This is such a versatile set, that is easy to use.

In this example, the sunflower component is used to
create a Christmas wreath.   The sentiment comes from
Christmas Pines on page 120.  I love layering the wreath
on a piece of Wood Textures DSP stack, because it
resembles a wooden door.   This is a really quick and easy
Christmas card for friend or family!

Santa's Sleigh Stamp Off Sketch Challenge

Hey stamping friends.  Welcome to our Stamp Off
Challenge, hosted by Buffy, Susan and me!

This week, we are doing a sketch challenge, provided by Susan.
I feel that sketch challenges are kind of like paint by number
 kits; they guide you on the creative process.

I "sort of" followed the sketch, which works for our 
challenges.  I stamped the deer from Santa's Sleigh (p 119),
and colored it with the Stampin' Blends.  The sentiment comes
from the Star of Light set on page 122.  The rest of this
card was picking colors and layering.  The Rhinestones
are colored with the Stampin' Blends, which is a 
wonderful means to coordinate card elements.

Now make sure that you check out what Susan and Buffy
have created for this sketch challenge!
