I’m excited about today! CAS(E) This Sketch is launching one of my sketches for this week’s challenge. When we were asked to submit sketches for the team, I sketched some simple ideas in a notebook and texted pictures from my iPhone. It’s fun to see that sketch come to life – and I can’t wait to see what the other designers and participants this week come up with. Here’s my card:
- A Reason to Celebrate. Painted Glass isn’t the first thing you think about when sitting down to make a Christmas card, but the “A Reason to Celebrate” sentiment is quite appropriate, don’t you think? The Old English Gothic calligraphy lent the level of sophistication I wanted for my card. Here’s a closer look at this sentiment that I cropped with a Layering Ovals Framelits Die:While I only used the Painted Glass stamp set, the set also comes with a coordinating set of Framelits. Here’s a look at the Painted Glass Bundle: If you’d like to see ALL of the items in this amazing suite, click on this image:
- Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. How gorgeous are the papers in the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper? Let me answer that for you – they are amazingly gorgeous. The Real Red panel on my card is from the Regals 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper, and the beautiful panel of holly and Real Red jingle bells on the top is from Under the Mistletoe. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper: Good news! The Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, featured on this card, is one of ten packs of Designer Series Papers in Stampin’ Up!’s “Buy 3, Get 1 FREE” promotion in July. There’s no better time to stock up! Click on the picture below to check out the sale in my online store:
- Christmas Colors. The colors for this card are pulled right from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series paper. Old Olive, Real Red and Early Espresso are a gorgeous combination of colors that share both the warmth and joy of the holiday. If you like this combination of colors as much as I do, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Painted Glass Papers: Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, Regals 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (Real Red), Early Espresso, Old Olive, Thick Whisper White Inks: Basic Black Accessories: Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
