Santa Stache for CCMC334

It's hard to believe we are just a week away from Christmas...are you ready??  I'm not!!  I still have lots of decorating to do, not mention shopping.  The one thing I do have done is Christmas cards.  But just because I have them completed doesn't mean they are in the mail!! I am always late on cards, just seems to be my way.  Today I have a fun Santa Stache card to share with you that I made for the color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  The colors they chose are perfect for Christmas!


Santa Stache was the first stamp set that came to mind when I saw these colors.  I wanted to keep the card clean and simple with Santa being the main focus.


The card started out with a Cherry Cobbler base embossed with stars.  A banner from the Party Pennants die came next with the sentiment stamped along the bottom.

Santa was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Cherry Cobbler and Flesh Tones Blendabilities.

Last little touch was a few Silver Glimmer stars cut with the smallest Star Framelit and the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Well, I hope today's card has inspired you to create a card of your own and join the challenge with us.  You can find all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team at Create with Connie and Mary.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Happy Stamping!

Holiday Home for TST

I have holiday card to share today for the sketch challenge from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  Here's a quick look at the sketch for this week.

 
I am still in holiday card mode so I pulled out Holiday Home and my heat gun to make this fun sparkly card.

I just LOVE the houses from this set!!  And they worked out perfectly with this weeks sketch, a smaller house in between two taller.  I added in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for snow and stars in the sky.  The houses are all heat embossed in white and die cut so the card came together quickly.

So...now it's your turn!  If you are still needing to make holiday cards like me, why not make one using this week's sketch!  You can find all the details plus more great samples at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Happy Stamping!

Wondrous Wreath for TSSC345

Welcome!  It's Monday and time for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge from Technostamper.  Here's a look at the fun sketch Mary Jo has for us this week.

I love this sketch, but I wanted to do something a little different.  I flipped the sketch and used a standard size card base in place of this longer one.
Isn't this bright and cheerful?  I love using non-traditional colors for Christmas cards, it makes me smile....especially when pink is involved!

I started out with a Pink Pirouette card base stamped with the Hardwood background in the same color.  A banner of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper comes next to add a some sparkle.

The wreath is my favorite part of the whole card.  The leaves are stamped with Bermuda Bay and Pool Party then topped with Strawberry Slush berries.  A Silver Foil bow adorns the top with a small circle of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper in the center.

The wreath is popped up with dimensionals on a piece of Strawberry Slush that has the sentiment from November's Paper Pumpkin stamped at the bottom.

So, that's it!!  A very merry PINK Christmas!!  I hope you are feeling inspired and join me in the challenge.  You can go to Technostamper for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.
