Hey, y’all! Welcome to Tuesday and another fun challenge from Stamp Ink Paper!
Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #129 this week is a color challenge…
I pulled out the fun Host set called Season of Whimsy from the 2017 Holiday Catalog for this one and added some pine boughs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits. Take a look-see:
This card also played along quite nicely with the FabFriday challenge this week.
I started this one with a piece of gold plaid paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP matted on Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front. Then I cut a piece of Wood Textures DSP, matted it on Cherry Cobbler and Fast Fuse’d it to the card front.
I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add the sentiment from the Season of Whimsy set in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.
On a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock, I stamped the three Season of Whimsy ornaments in Versamark and heat embossed them in Gold. Then I colored each of them with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker and fussy cut them.
I cut a bunch of Pretty Pines Thinlits pine boughs in Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green, and a couple of Cherry Cobbler berries, too!
I built my little “scene” by adhering the pine boughs with Liquid Glue and interspersing the Season of Whimsy ornaments amongst them. I used a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the final largest ornament.
I tied a small bow from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot. To finish things off, I added a few gold Metallic Enamel Shapes!
On the inside, I left the liner blank, simply repeating the layers on the front of the card. I matted a piece of Year of Cheer Specialty DSP on Cherry Cobbler and, over that, Fast Fuse’d a Cherry Cobbler matted piece of Whisper White.
I Fast Fuse’d the layered panels into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Gold embossed ornament from Season of Whimsy on the front – colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker…
…and a little more of the Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap!
Et Voila! A couple of greens and some Cherry Cobbler to make a wonderful Pretty Pine-filled display of Christmas ornaments courtesy of the Season of Whimsy stamp set! I hope you like!
Season of Whimsy is on the retiring list – so, if you love it (and why wouldn’t you??) – now’s the time to get it. Holler at me and ask me how! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix
So – one of the fun things that happened to the Man this past weekend was meeting Lucky.
Lucky lives there in North Carolina.
Lucky and Finn hit it off immediately! Of course, Lucky may have wished Finn had a smidge less energy – he was a bit worn out by the time the play date ended.
Hard to imagine….
…airs above the ground…
This kind of play takes a toll, people. Even on a youngster Aussie!
He said a fond adieu to Lucky and I think they made tentative plans for a re-match in the near future! And then he climbed in the truck to recuperate!
