Santa Paws Stamp Set

Santa Paws Towering Tree

For this card, I chose a base of Tranquil Tide highlighted by the panel of Lemon Lime Twist embossed with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The tree image was stamped using Stazon ink and colored with the Many Marvelous Markers.  The sentiment was stamped in Tranquil Tide ink and fussy cut with paper snips. To top off the towering tree of pets, I chose a felt bow in the Tranquil Tide color from the 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows.

Christmas Card Throwdown

The background of this card uses the emboss resist technique with the Sheet Music background stamp.  The image is stamped using Versamark ink and gold embossing powder.  Using sponges, various ink colors were daubed in a diagonal pattern across the cardstock.

Swirly Snowman CASE

"CASE"ing, is taking an idea and adding your own flair to it. The snowman body is cut out on the Big Shot using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and the precision base plate. His carrot nose is created with a scrap of Pumpkin Pie paper and the larger wing shape from the same thinlit set. So many of the versions that I saw on Pinterest had no arms or face. I couldn't help but put the Santa hat on his head with the Jolly Hat punch!

Fab Friday 97

These happy Holly Berries have a vintage feel to them. A color palette with a vintage feel seemed appropriate. They are featured in Fab Friday's blog challenge for this week. A few of the new products in the Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP are also featured on this card. The background paper is from the Candy Cane Lane DSP pack. It also has an embossed background done in Real Red using the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing folder.
