Jolly Friends

merrychristmasThis is Jolly Friends meets Hang Your Stocking.  And this one is another ‘reject’ card.  I had actually made this for the SUO challenge earlier this month and decided that it was not elegant enough for the challenge but I did really like it and wanted to share it with all of you!

I really LOVE the look of the Merry Christmas from the Hang Your Stocking set and I wanted to also use the Stitched Shapes framelits – LOVE these!  So this is really a nice easy card!  Oh…it’s hard to see from the photo but the hat is all gold embossed pieces!

Here’s the details…

  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out stitched oval, stamp greeting using Cherry Cobbler, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp hat, trim and pompom using Versamark, gold emboss and punch out, layer and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp holly using Garden Green and Holly using Cherry Cobbler, cut out with matching framelits, layer and add to hat to finish off
 Set(s): Jolly Friends, Hang Your Stocking
Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Gold glimmer
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Versamark
Other: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Christmas Stocking Framelits, Jolly Hat Builder Punch, Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Gold Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Oh What Fun

jollyI’ve been wanting to use a card with using just the Santa Hat from Jolly Friends as my image and had a couple ideas to try out.  This is one of the two cards I made using that idea!

I didn’t want a standard ‘Merry Christmas’ as my greeting and though JOLLY from the Oh What Fun set was perfect.  I also loved the little jingle bells and thought that they would be a perfect accent to the Santa Hat.  So all in all a quick and traditional Christmas card!

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Holly Berry Print – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 1 x 4 1/4, stamp greeting using Real Red
  • Gold Glimmer – 3/8 x 3 3/4, add behind the Whisper White piece then add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp hat using Real Red then the trim and pom pom using Memento Black, punch everything out, layer and add to card front using dimesnionas
  • Stamp jingle bell image once using Emerald Envy, cut out, then a second time using Versamark and gold emboss, cut out just the gold embossed jingle bell and layer onto the Emerald Envy piece, add to hat to finish off.

Isn’t that nice and easy!

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Presents & Pinecones dsp, Gold Glimmer
