PP69 Christmas Wishes

Hi Stampers!   

Well, according to our local weather report, it should be “beginning to look a lot like Christmas” tonight and tomorrow as we are anticipating receiving 4” – 8” of snow here on the East Coast!  What would be better to celebrate than a Christmas card created for The Paper Player’s PP69 Sketch Challenge? 

This week’s sketch was quite a challenge since all of the Design Team samples and other entries seemed to use the sets that I thought of and they were so gorgeous!  As I looked at the sketch, I thought, why not flip it on it's side, so that is what I decided to do..:-))  

To create this card:

Using Stampin’ Write Markers in More Mustard, Old Olive and Cajun Craze, color the bird image and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Cut out the banner shape and distress with the Distressing Tool.  Layer onto Old Olive, cut the banner and distress as well.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White, add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon double layer (for the panel area in the sketch behind the banner).    

Use the same markers to color the floral image from the Gifts of Christmas set as well as the sentiment.  Punch out layers for both and adhere to the card.   Add the pearls and satin bow to finish off the card.  

Stamp Sets:  Gifts of Christmas, Short and Sweet
 Ink: none- Stampin’ Write markers- Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Old Olive
Accessories:  Big Shot™, Petals-A-PlentyTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Distressing Tool, Punches- Word Window, Modern Label, 1” and 1 ¼” Circle, Pearls, 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks for stopping by!  I am looking forward to being snowed in a bit (it will melt fast) and having time to clean house (oh, who am I kidding, stamping comes first!).

 Have fun stamping and God Bless!

Julie, I cannot believe that you guys are going to have so much snow, so early in the season! How wonderful to use it as an excuse to make a Christmas card! I love that you turned the sketch on its side to make it work for you. Fabulous card!
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

What a clever take on my sketch Julie--so glad that you featured another way to use it! Lovely stamping job and I love the double row of ribbon. Beautiful card, my friend! Always a pleasure to see you at The Paper Players!

Wow, Julie. Stay safe in that snow! How crazy that it is already snowing in October. I love your take on this sketch! It works great with your image when flipped like that. I have a friend who just got that stamp set, so I'll have to share your card with her.

This is a perfect Christmas card! Love what you did with the sketch! We got a little snow today, too--but I didn't get to stamp! :(

What a fabulous flip of the sketch! Your focal image works perfectly and the coloring is just gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players!

Julie, you have done it again! What a beautiful and elegant Christmas card! I really like the soft distressing around the banner. Love all of the detail you added by using the markers to ink up the image, too. THanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

I know you got a lot of snow, I hope you didn't lose power like so many people did. The perk to being snowed in is that you will have lots of stamping time, right? Have a great day!
