Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge #129 - Oh Christmas Tree

Image
Hi everyone,


Welcome back to our Stamp Ink Paper challenge.  This week we have a colour challenge for you.  The colours are Red, Green & Gold.  Doesn't that just scream Traditional Christmas to you?  It does to me.





I've used cardstock of Real Red, Whisper White, Garden Green, Gold foil and Red Glimmer paper for my card.






The Holly embossing folder has been used on the Gold foil background.  I think the result is stunning.




I've used the Christmas Staircase bundle for my card.






Thank you for joining us this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  We can't wait to see your creation with these colours.

Have a great day,

Paper Craft Crew Challenge 271 - Let it Snow

Image
Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our Sketch challenge this week at the Paper Craft Crew.  Here is our sketch.






I'm playing with some Year of Cheer specialty dsp combined with Merry Little Labels stamps for this card with the matching punch.





The Label punch fits nicely on the Lots of Tags framelits which I used to cut out the Copper foil.





I am loving the look of the Copper Foil combined with the Night of Navy.  I think it looks so elegant especially with that dsp.

Thank you for joining us this week at the Paper Craft Crew.  We look forward to seeing your take on this weeks sketch.

Have a great day,

Stamp Ink Paper #128 - Joy to the World

Image
Hi Everyone,

Welcome to this week's challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper!  Let it Snow



Here's my card for the challenge using Hearts Come Home stamps and matching framelits Hometown Greetings and Seasonal Layers thinlits.  The cardstock is Whisper White and Shimmery White along with some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for the snowflakes & border.






The background was created but sponging with inks of Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Berry Burst onto the Shimmery White card and then spritzed with water.





I love how this turned out for the Let it Snow challenge and the colours were a change from the usual frosty colours I'd normally go for with this theme. 

Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  We can't wait to see what you create for our theme.

Have a great day,

Stamp, Ink Paper #127 - Acetate Envelope Box

Image
Hi everyone,

Welcome to this week's challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper.   Coming up to Christmas is a great time to focus on packaging so thats what we have you for this week's challenge.





I've decided to decorate an Acetate Box which is perfect for adding some handmade cards to for gift giving.  This was actually really simple to decorate with a minimum of products.





The patterned paper is from the Specialty pack Year of Cheer, to which I've added on top a Foil Snowflake and layered a greeting from the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  Gold ribbon finishes it off.






Thank you for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper!  Can't wait to see your own packaging ideas.

Have a great day.

Paper Craft Crew 269 - Color Me Happy Birdies

Image
Hi Everyone,

Thank you for joining us this week at the Paper Craft Crew.  We have a themed challenge this week "Very Vintage" and I have to say my card is probably more on the Fresh Vintage side.  What do you think?  Anyway I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge.






Here's my card using the Color Me Happy stamp set.




I've used the Layered Leaves Embossing folder on the background and sponged it with a little Soft Suede ink.  The Cardstock is Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Whisper White.  I've also used our new Stampin Blends to colour in the birdies.



Here is a closer look



These birdies are so easy to colour






Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you like my card and I hope you enjoy this weeks theme at the Paper Craft Crew.  Have a great day.
