Do you realise that if we are up to week 4 in my Christmas Blog series that it is actually only 8 weeks until Christmas! Eeek!! Time to start Christmas shopping!!
This week, I am focusing on the Joyful Season stamp set. I loved this set when I first saw it in the catalogue and couldn’t wait to get it.
I’ve been inspired by a Mojo Monday sketch this week. Here is the sketch.
I used the striped vellum from the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack and rounded the corners with the Project Life corner rounder punch. I love rounded corners!!! I then stamped the Cherry Cobbler background piece with the dots from the stamp set which are used for the branch. I used the white glitter ribbon to add some bling.
I stamped the Joyful image onto Whisper White cardstock then cut it out with the Lots of Labels framelits and used the updated Essentials paper piercing kit to pierce around the edge. I cut the same size in silver foil and added to the end of the banner.
For my second card, I wanted to showcase the bird. I used my square framelits and cut out 2 sizes (yes, I know I could have just used my paper trimmer!!) I stamped the bird with the new Archival basic black and then stamped with Real Red for the body of the bird.
I used my favourite Christmas DSP, Home for Christmas, for this card. I added a piece of Very Vanilla satin ribbon which is so luxurious!! I felt it need some bling, so I added a Gold foil word from the Christmas Greetings framelits
I hope you have enjoyed my cards this week. To see the previous weeks’ posts, follow the links.
Happy Christmas Stamping!!
