Hello Crafty Friends,
I am taking another quick break from Halloween cards to jump into Christmas! If you have looked at the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog then surely you have seen how many unbelievably adorable Christmas stamp set there are, right? I think the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set is one of them! Even though I love Halloween I am also a big fan of Christmas. Check out this new card I made that mixes new stuff with an old favorite from last Christmas.
I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut out lots of branches with the super pretty Glimmer Paper. I added in some green using the new Sprig punch. It is really nice to have a punch that can make sprigs for all the different projects we make! The sentiment is from the new Farmhouse Christmas stamp set. I will have more to show on that set sometime soon because it is the cutest thing ever! That tiny little wreath you see in the sentiment was added in and the bow was colored using the Cherry Cobbler Dark Blends marker. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I then loosely wrapped Silver Metallic Thread around the leaves and added in some Clear Epoxy Droplets here and there. The paper I used is part of the All is Bright Designer Series Paper pack and has lots of versatility. One side is photo-real scenes and the other is basic simple designs. Stampin’ Up! always seems to make sure we have options!! The card stock and ink color used is Shaded Spruce. I believe it is one of my most favorite greens because it is so very rich.
Have you started thinking about your Christmas cards yet? I will be sure to give you more ideas so hopefully you can find some inspiration here! ♥
