Merry Season for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I know I've been MIA in blogland the past week...and I do apologize to my faithful followers. I'm currently in Niagara Falls holding my Fall Fling Stamp 'n' Scrap Retreat. The days leading up to this event as well as this weekend have been a little bit crazy! I'm looking forward to some downtime and getting back to my regular schedule.

That said, the retreat has been a BLAST so far! I am having so much fun stamping and sharing with my friends...what a great weekend away it has been!

Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Check it out...

Here is my card for the challenge, using the Merry Patterns stamp set...

I began with a piece of Real Red card stock which I embossed using the Holly TIEF. I added a strip of Merry Little Christmas DSP, a gold glimmer banner and some Real Red, Basic Black and gold baker's twine and then adhered it to a Basic Black card stock base.

The sentiment is stamped first in Basic Black and then the letters are filled in with Real Red. I offset the letters slightly for a 3-D effect. I added some pine branches along the bottom edge in Old Olive ink and layered the stamped panel on a slightly-larger piece of Basic Black. I added a few black rhinestones to the flourish and voila...quick and easy Christmas card!

On the insde I added a Whisper White card stock panel on which I stamped the sentiment is Real Red and more pine boughs in Old Olive.

This sketch is many more ideas swimming around in my head...I just need more hours in the day to bring them to life. Give this one a try and be sure to share with us at Sunday Stamps.

Have a fabulous Sunday!
