All Is Calm for Sunday Stamps

Happy November!  Can you believe it? Where has the fall gone??  If you are one of those people who can't start thinking about Christmas until after Halloween, the time has come! Time to get going on those Christmas projects! Today I have some inspiration for you from this week's new challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  It is a colour challenge this week...here is the inspiration photo:



Here is my project for the Design Team:


Holiday card featuring the Wonderland stamp set and Home for Christmas DSP
This card was SO much fun to make! It has been a very long time since I have been able to just sit and play with ink, paper and rubber. I began by sponging a piece of the sheet music patterned DSP from the Home for Christmas pack. I used Island Indigo and Night of Navy inks for the sponging. Then I stamped the trees from the Wonderland stamp set in Soft Suede and white Staz On ink. I then spritzed the entire thing with Stampin' Mist. I played some more, adding hints of Versamark ink around the edges and sprinkling with gold embossing powder.

The stamped panel is matted on a piece of Soft Suede card stock and then mounted on a Kraft card base. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold on a strip of vellum. I added some gold metallic thread, a wooden Snowflake Element and a single rhinestone.

On the inside I stamped the pine branch in Soft Suede ink, stamping off once. The sentiment, which is from the Six Sayings host set, is heat embossed in gold.

I am sooo happy with the way this one turned out.  Amazing things can happen when you just let yourself play.  Give it a go and see what this colour challenge inspires you to create, then share it with us over at Sunday Stamps. :)

Here are all of the products I used to create this card. Clicking any one of them will take you directly to my online store for easy ordering.

  3. What a stunning card! Love the gold around the edges, and misting the beautiful sheet music paper has given it a lovely rustic feel. You've inspired me to go play around a bit! :-)

    1. Thank you Shannon. It has been a very, very long time since I was last able to sit and play. I just pulled out the colours in our challenge and started layering colour. I felt so good to allow myself to do this...wish I had the time to do it more often!
