I love a clean and simple card. This week’s sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch offers a perfect layout for a simple card. My card features a new stamp set, new Designer Series Paper Stack and a fun, new embellishment from the Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Holiday Catalog (live this Friday!). Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for Donna Mikasa’s challenge that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Watercolor Christmas & Quilted Christmas. Today’s cards features two products I’ve already showcased on my blog – the Watercolor Christmas stamp set and the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack. Yay! I’m absolutely over-the-moon about the Watercolor Christmas stamp set – while the set pairs with a project kit, it stands on its own beautifully. I also love the versatile patterns in the Quilted Christmas Stack. Here’s a look at this fun stamp set:
- Stitched Felt Embellishments. This is the first time I’ve used the Stitched Felt Embellishments – what took me so long? A star, a tree, holly – so cute! They coordinate perfectly with the pages in the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack. I attached this felt star with a tiny strip of Tear & Tape – so easy!
- What’s the Bright Idea? I love that this paper and these embellishments pair Garden Green with Real Red. By habit, I tend to pair Garden Green with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive with Real Red (regals with regals and brights with brights). It’s refreshing to see deep, rich green with rich, bright red.
Stamp Sets: Watercolor Christmas Papers: Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack, Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White, Crumb Cake Inks: Archival Basic Black Accessories: Stitched Felt Embellishments, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
