Good Morning everyone and TGIF!
I don't know about anyone else but I have been having problems with Blogger all morning! I finally gave up on trying to post this morning and had to abandon my project for a while. Now that I have returned, Blogger appears to be working again! (at least I think it is)
I made this card for Whiff Of Joy's weekly challenges. This weeks sketch challenge was designed by Heather Huggins. I really like this sketch but I had a difficult time finding X-mas themed designer papers that complimented each other. I finally settled on using Papertrey Inks Holiday Vintage Prints for this card. Sometimes picking out design paper is like picking out an outfit! lol
The stamp I used for this card is from Whiff of Joy's Charlotte & Charlie (Christmas 08) Collection, and she is called Angel Charlotte ! I double stamped my image, colored in the main image then I trimmed the image and used dimensionals to mount it. To give the illusion that both images are colored in, I simply color around the lines of the main image. Then I mount my trimmed and fully colored in image on top of it. *tip* When cutting out images, turn the paper as you cut.....not the scissors. At first it is a bit tricky but after you do this a while it comes naturally to you.
The sentiment is a rub-on from SU's Season of Cheer. The card stock is from Papertrey Ink's Stampers Select and Cut Cardstock Compay. The inks I used were Adirondack's Pitch Black and Copic Markers. I used my paper pierce tool for the decorative pin holes and embellished my card with ribbon and pearls. I also used my Nestabilites rectangle dies and paper slot punch from SU!
Thank you for the inspiration Heather!
I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll be back Sunday
