Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.
I pulled out a set I hadn’t really used yet – the Peaceful Noel stamp set and bundled Sprig Punch and set those against some beautiful Joyous Noel Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
I decided – since this is most definitely a Christmas card! – to play along again at TGIF Challenge.
I started by adhering a panel of gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty DSP on a Tranquil Tide mat for the card front. Isn’t it wonderful how well Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide play with each other?!?
Next up is a Whisper White panel for the art piece. I used Tranquil Tide, Sahara Sand and Merry Merlot to stamp images from the Joyous Noel stamp set in a cluster near the bottom of the panel. I stamped some of the images twice without re-inking to create a little depth. I matted it on Tranquil Tide and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I punched a couple of Tranquil Tide leaves from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper using the Sprig Punch. Then I adhered them with Liquid Glue.
The sentiment, from Joyous Noel, is heat embossed in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Whisper White, then cut with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.
I put a few Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment oval and used them to wind some loops of Linen Thread, then adhered the whole thing to the card front.
I tied a Linen Thread Double Loop Billie bow, stuck it onto the card with a squished up Glue Dot and that was it for the card front.
On the inside, I added a few more Joyous Noel images in Sahara Sand, Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot in the corner of a Whisper White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Merry Merlot card front, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more pine boughs, leaves and berries from Joyous Noel on the front…
…and I graced the envelope flap with more of the beautiful Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.
Et Voila! Pine Boughs. Leaves. Berries. Wonderful sentiments. Peaceful Noel has it all! Did I mention PINE boughs?!? And when you add the other beautiful goodies in the Joyous Noel Suite…well. Hope you like!
