Christmas Style

I am very glad that I am being productive today (in a crafty sense-not housework!) and I am also happy to feel my mojo coming back.  I really liked the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week, so gave it a go with another new stamp, Quint-Essential Flower.  This is such a versatile stamp!  This stamp can be colored and used for just about any occasion, including Christmas.

Here is my interpretation of this sketch-
-Freshly Made Sketches Winning Card-

 To make this card I used-
Stamps-Quint-Essential Flower, Elements of Style, Tiny Tags
Paper-Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Whisper White
Ink-Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Gray
Other-stripes ef, Polka Dot ef, large and small Scallop Circle punches, 1/2" circle punch, 1" circle punch, White Organza Ribbon Dimensionals

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by; Have a fantastic weekend!

I am still crafting and going strong.  It is a peaceful Friday with nothing pressing going on.  Don't you just love those kinds of days?  Bella, my dog, is doing better.  I had to take her to the vet yesterday as she had stopped eating or drinking for a couple of days.  She seems to be on the mend now so I have all of this free time.  What better thing to do than papercraft!  I am enjoying all of the new goodies Stampin' Up has in the new catalog.  This card uses the new Apothecary Framelits and the wonderful paper piercing TEMPLATES!  I love paper piercing and now it is fool proof!

To make this card I used:
Stamps-Thoughts and Prayers
Paper-Whisper White, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Midnight Muse, Patio Party dsp
Ink-Soft Suede and Midnight Muse
Other-Apothecary Framelits, Paper Piercing Templates, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack

This went together very quickly and easily; perfect for the type of card that sadly, is needed so frequently.  

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of blogland!  Have a fantastic weekend!
