Tis the Season all Stamping card

Happy November all! It’s a bit hard to believe that 2021 is almost over. What will 2022 bring for us? Will it be better like we hope or the same as the last two years? Only time will tell. Until then we carry on with our lives, making the most of our time, day by day, season by season. Sorry for being maudlin today. I hope you don’t find my card maudlin.

If you follow my posts regularly you know I like to use layers and die cuts and other things to give my cards textures and pop. This card is a bit of a departure from that style but I like it so so much. Everything element is stamped, no die cutting at all. I’ve also used some unexpected colors from the red and green family.

Christmas Season Stamp set 156293

Christmas Season stamp set, new in the Jul-Dec mini catalog is a ‘no-sentiment’ stamp set. Just beautiful images to mix together for lovely projects. Once I had my stamp set in mind I went to my color wall to pick out the ink to use.

Soft suede is pretty predictable and so is Soft Sea Foam, but when I pulled out Flirty Flamingo I even surprised myself. But how pretty they look all together!.

Christmas To Remember 156300

I still needed a sentiment and Christmas to Remember has bunches. I really like sentiments like the Tis the season where the ink is all around the words. These are perfect for a little snipping and you have a sentiment with a layered background all in one.

  2. Basic white 4 x 5-1/4, 3/4 x 5-1/4, and a piece large enough for the sentiment
