In Stamping Mode

Make Merry!

I typically try and do a Stampin' Up! only card...as a challenge to myself, and boy was I rusty! It's been a loooong time since I've done one, so I made it a goal this week to accomplish. I'm tellin' you people...it was rough! I've had sets from the new mini as well as the new Ornament Punch AND Christmas dsp just yearning to be used, LOL! Ok, bear with me....here it is!


Inspiration for the sketch came straight from the latest Splitcoast Sketch Challenge. I've got to admit though...I get BIG TIME inspiration from Melissa Phillip's blog and this is the card that I got the bow treatment on the ornaments from HERE. Fabulousness, huh?? I meant her card, not mine. :)

Anywho...are you looking at the ornament and thinking, "ummm, Melissa, that's not an ornament from the set." Girl! It is! This is the "To and From" ornament from the set. See that diagonal striped dsp in the background of the card? Well, what I did was stamp the ornament on the UNDERside of the dsp and then cut out the To and From parts, flipped it over and adhered it to the top of the ornament. Clever, yes?! I also added some Dazzling Diamonds to the vanilla stripes for sparkle. Hope you SUO fans out there like it!

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for getting, "in stamping mode."
