TSSC292Happy Monday everyone!  And welcome to another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  I don’t know how Mary Jo does it but she has another GREAT sketch for us!

Since I’m in Christmas mode here, I thought I’d use the sketch for another Christmas card!

Here’s the details

  • Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • 3 pieces of Season of Style dsp – 2 1/8 x 3 1/2 I used multi-colored chevron for 2 of them and one Old Olive/White large polka dot for the other.  Add to card front.
  • Cut out oval using Oval framelits from Whisper White, stamp Noel (Greetings of the Season) in Early Espresso ad to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp ornaments in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive, punch with the Christmas Ornament punch add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Tie knots in pieces of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon and add to top of ornaments
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

TSSC292I love cards that have panels that aren’t all lined up…they are just fun to play with!  Hope you can join the fun!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

SUO85It’s time once again for another SUO challenge.  This time our challenge was to do non-traditional Christmas.  I decided to go with some non-traditional colors so no red and green for me!

I thought it would be fun to go with some ‘modern’ colors so went with Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and silver!  It’s Christmas…you need some sparkle!

Here’s the details…

  • Bermuda Bay:  4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White 3 7/8 x 3 7/8
  • Bermuda Bay print 3 3/4 x 1 1/4 add to Whisper White
  • Melon Mambo print 3 3/4 x 1 3/4 add to Whisper White
  • Silver Glimmer 3 3/4 x 1 1/8 add to Whisper White then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Versamark on 2 1/2 whisper White circle and silver emboss, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Two ornaments, one Melon Mambo, one Bermuda Bay, punch with Christmas Ornament punch, add using dimensionals.

Well today TWO (not 1 but 2) of our fabulous design team are offering BLOG CANDY today.  Who might that be???  Well check out Create with Connie and Mary to find out!

Now for a little about my card today.  The base of the card is Crumb Cake.  I stamped the greeting using Cherry Cobbler.  I cut a piece of the plaid dsp into a banner and added it to the card front.  I took a piece of the dotted dsp, added a strip of Old Olive along the top and an Old Olive Scallop Edge along the bottom.  The I added two piece of Silver 1/8 ribbon and added this panel to the card front using dimensionals.  One ornament was done in Cherry Cobbler and the other in Old Olive, punched with the Christmas Ornament Punch then added to the card front to finish it off.
