This is another card we made at this month's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. We used the Under the Tree designer paper — I cut out stars using the Stars Collection Thinlits and popped them up on dimensionals. The card base is Cherry Cobbler with a layer of Garden Green. The Be Merry is from the Holiday Invitation stamp set.
Have you seen the Santa Stache stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. The first time I saw this set it kind of "creeped" me out. I'm not fond of nutcrackers — I have a nephew who collects them — but I find them a little scary. I didn't order this stamp set right away but I kept looking at it. I saw a few samples and the Santa is kind of cute so I ordered it. I started using the nutcracker image and am finding I like it. I love cutting out the mustache with the mustache framelit and popping it up on dimensionals for a 3-D look.
This card was made at this month's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class. The class featured the Under the Tree designer paper. This piece gave me my base color– Early Espresso. I colored the nutcracker with Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities so I added small layers of each cardstock to blend it all together. I am very happy with the way this card turned out. I hope you enjoy it too.
We requested a religious Christmas Stamp set and Stampin' Up! listened!
A new Photopolymer stamp set is available. It's called Gentle Peace and it's perfect for coloring and shading with our Blendabilities for a stained glass effect. It's also the perfect set for a soft and simple heat embossed card.
My set is on the way to me. I can't wait to get it and make a few very special Christmas cards. Of course with all of the coloring not everyone will get this card but I can think of a few that would really appreciate this card. It would also make a beautiful framed art piece to display for the holiday season — oh, oh now I really can't wait for it to arrive. Time to look for a special frame.
You can get your own Gentle Peace stamp set too — just go to my online store or email me now and I am happy to place the order for you.
