PP75 Non-Traditional Christmas Card
Wow, it seems like it has been forever since I have had a chance to stamp! This week has been very busy at work and a lot of overtime hours but just in the nick of time, I was able to participate in the Paper Players PP75 Holiday Hoopla Challenge (if you have time to visit their site, check out all of the samples- they are absolutely fabulous!)
The non-traditional stamp set used is Day of Gratitude (can you see it as the ornament tops) and the colors are somewhat non-traditional (depending on the fashion trend when you were young).
I decided to use silver, pink and turquoise- those colors remind me of a silver tinsel tree that we had as our family Christmas tree for years (my mother loved all of the silver!:-)).Oh no, I am aging myself- do you remember those tinsel trees? :-)
With Versamark™ ink stamp the medallion image from Day of Gratitude onto Whisper White cardstock and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder. Once the embossing powder cools, use a Sponge Dauber with Pink Pirouette ink to color the white cardstock and carefully cut around the image.
Use the Ornament Punch to punch out the caps for the ornaments and also punch out the ornament shapes from a piece of Tempting Turquoise (embossed with the Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).
Use the Big Shot™ with the Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pretty in Pink and Basic Gray. Layer the cardstock, ribbon, ornaments and sentiment.
