As the days to Christmas dwindle, I find myself behind on my Christmas cards. Yes I played along with tons of challenges over the year but still, still I am behind. So today I just wanted to do something relaxing and on the simpler side. What I came up with is the card you see above. Although the Delightful Decorations stamp is beautiful in and of itself, I had to add some BLING. The dsp and silver twine are both scraps from my stash. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Merry & Type stamp set.
The glitter paper is also Stampin' Up!
For my card I used the Vintage Santa stamp from Stampabilities. The sentiment is a die from Peachy Cheap. To add some color to my stamped image I used Distress Oxide inks on a cotton swab.
The stamped background is En Francais from Stampin' Up!
This card was created using a varied array of supplies.
I started with SU! Whisper White cs. Using a dauber I applied TSUKINEKO pigment inks -- Toffee, Imperial Purple, Deep Lagoon and Spanish Moss. Then placing a few different stencils in the bottom right hand corner I applied Imperial Purple and Blue Lagoon. Then with Staz-On Black I stamped Textures Water Droplets (CM-T3) from Designs by Ryn. I added white gel pen to highlight the droplets. I used a stencil from Layers of Color Natural Flourish and daubed on Spanish Moss.
Then on another piece of cs I stamped the little seahorse from Pink Paislee's Nantucket stamp set. With my daubers I rubbed on the TSUKINEKO inks. Then I took my Stickles and added some glitz. Lastly I added some rhinestones and call it done. Hope you like my little trip to the ocean. It's been mighty chilly here in North Central Texas for the past week. I was just envisioning some warmer temps.
Designs by Ryn has a challenge going on right now. So if you…
