Mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop. We had a sketch this week (that I took a little liberty with cuz I sorta didn’t look at it too closely when I was building my card!) – and I know there are going to be a lot of great projects for you to see this week, so….be sure to check out all the offerings of the Ladies-Who-Hop!
I kind of glanced at the sketch and saw the triple panel and then I totally missed 1) the banner at the bottom and 2) the landscaped-ness of the sketch. I pulled out the Happy Ornament a la carte stamp and some Presents & Pinecones DSP and just went on my Merry way.
Merry. Get it?
Christmas ornament?? Mary??
Here’s what I came up with – take a look-see:
To begin, I SNAILd a piece of Presents & Pinecones DSP to a Garden Green mat. In retrospect, I might should have gone with Emerald Envy – but I didn’t, so I used Garden Green all the way thru like it was my job! 🙂
The art work is simply the Happy Ornament image heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. Then I sliced it into 3 equal sized panels. I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to a Whisper White panel and then SNAILd that to a Cherry Cobbler Mat.
I popped that panel onto my card front with Stampn’ Dimensionals. The bow is a piece of Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine and a piece of Garden Green Baker’s Twine, adhered to the card with some Liquid Glue. Finally, I added three Garden Green Enamel Shapes. We learned about the “Rule of Three” at the WCMD last week, so I was trying it out!
And that was it for the card front!
For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I pulled out the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and stamped a couple of Garden Green presents and Cherry Cobbler bows on the front…
Et Voila! So quick – so easy – so fun! I love that even broken into three pieces, your brain just automatically adjusts and is able to read the entire sentiment! And this has to be one of the coolest stamps we’ve got! Hope you like!
