Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 11 / Holiday Mash-Up!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Woot Woot … It’s finally Friday and I have a pretty little card to share with you today. I did a mash-up of a some of my favorite items in the Holiday Mini Catalog … the Boughs of Holly Designer Paper, Holly Berry Dies and the Perched in a Tree Bundle.

My card base is Shaded Spruce and I used Cherry Cobbler to mat the beautiful Boughs of Holly Designer Series paper. I used the Holly Banner from the Holly Berry Dies to highlight my greeting (Old Olive was used behind the leaves to coordinate with the leaves on the designer paper).

I stamped the bird on Basic White using Momento Ink and then colored it with the Stampin’ Blends, making it easy to create multiple cards. I perched my bird on the “Textural Elements” which are also colored with my Blends!

You can see in this close-up that I added a touch of Wink of Stella on the leaves and the wooden element … who doesn’t like a little sparkle on a Christmas Card.

Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 5 / Boughs of Holly

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am really excited to share today’s card with you as it comes from one of the first suites I had to get my hands on when this Mini Catalog game out, and now it’s on the retiring list 😦

The Boughs of Holly Designer Series paper is simply stunning and is the backdrop for my card. I layered the poinsettia pattern with the Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler which creates such a beautifully rich look.

To add a holiday touch, I die cut the frame from the Gold Metallic Specialty paper and it seems to make the centers of the poinsettia really pop out. I also die cut a piece of the designer paper with several green shaded to put behind the leaves.

To keep the deep rich them of my card going … I heat embossed a piece of Cherry Cobbler with Clear Embossing powder and die cut the cherries. I also cut the detailed part of the cherry in the Gold Metallic paper. To bring in the deep green from the designer paper, I cut 3 sprigs from the Evening Evergreen cardstock.

A simple piece of white Bakers Twine behind the leaves complimented the white used for the greeting. Then I added a few of the Gold Holly Leaves to balance out the entire assembly. To complete my card, I added a piece of the designer paper onto the Basic White and then layered a piece of Evening Evergreen behind the Basic White.

If you take a good look at my card, then flip to page 24 on the Mini Catalog you will see where I got my inspiration from!! I think our catalogs are a great place for inspiration, and if you have shopped with me in the past year … You are on my mailing list and will be receiving the upcoming Jan – June Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs!!
