Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas with Suite Seasons!

Good morning, and Merry Christmas!  Thank you so much for taking a moment out of your busy day to stop by – I’m going to keep it short and sweet!

Finn is getting all ready for his first Christmas!  And maybe a prime rib bone?  Or…three? 🙂

My card today is from the Suite Seasons stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

The card front is simply a Whisper White panel, embossed in the Holly TIEF and then matted on Cherry Cobbler.  Next up is a piece of Presents & Pinecones DSP, matted on Cherry Cobbler and then SNAILd to the card front.

The sentiment is from Suite Seasons – I used the marker-to-rubber technique and inked the words and the berries with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker and the pine bough with the Emerald Envy marker.

I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish it off, I made a bow with Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy and Gold Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Snugged in under the bow is a silver holly sprig from the Christmas Trinkets Embellishments.

On the inside, I stamped just the pine sprig again – I covered the rest of the stamp with a sticky note and colored the sprig with the Markers – I also stamped it off once before I stamped my panel.  Over the top of that, I stamped a second sentiment – this time from the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set – in Cherry Cobbler.

I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler and SNAILd it into my Emerald Envy card base.  The card front is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added the sprig image twice on the front (this time in full-strength ink!)…

…and used a little more Presents & Pinecones DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a great layout – letting you showcase a beautiful embossing folder and pretty paper – and the Suite Season stamp set is really pretty perfect!  Hope you like.

    Beautiful card Mary!! My images never come out as well as yours when I use markers on stamps – any tips? Have a glorious Christmas:-). Finn is just too cute!

    • Merry Christmas and thanks, Elisha! So…when I do this technique, once I’ve colored everything, I “huff” on the stamp. Like…if you were huffing on your eyeglasses to them clean them. Know what I mean? Then almost always make the image come out well. Also, be sure to place the stamp down – without rocking it – and let it set a little before you lift it up. Finally – if needed – you can touch up the image with your Markers! Hope that helps! 🙂 🙂
