Today’s card is one I made for a swap with some of my Stampin’ Up! fellow demonstrators. We couldn’t do a weekend together due to covid, so did a swap to at least have a bit of sharing.
The stamp set is the Don’t Stop Believin’ set. I adore all of the stamps in this set. It also has the large Santa stamp that I have used previously. I think we all can relate to the tangled lights and tinsel!!
For the background I wanted to use the Tis The Season Designer Series Paper. It went best with the colors I invisioned for the elf. The downside is that it is 6X6 paper. I love 6X6 paper, but it limits your usage when doing multiples. To solve this problem, I cut strips from some of the ones I felt best went together and layered them on some Whisper White. Then all I had to do was flip it over and cut off the excess. I love this technique of paper piecing. It’s by far the easiest one for me.
I stamped the elf with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with a variety of Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment is stamped in the Memento Ink as well. I just realized that I took this photo before I decided it needed a bit more bling! To achieve that bit of bling, I added a green from the Holiday Rhinestones just to the left of the sentiment. I only added the one and it was perfect.
Thank you for stopping by today. I greatly appreciate you checking my cards and I love to read your comments. I found on Friday that anyone reaching out to me from my blog using the Contact Me button, was going to spam! If you were one of those people, I am SO SORRY!!!! It is fixed now, and hopefully will never be repeated!
