Whimsy Stamps 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2


Hi friends, it's day 2 of Whimsy Stamps Twelve Days of Christmas, and I'm up!  I wanted to do something a little modern for my card today, and this is what I came up with:

I started by stamping black stripes (Basic Backgrounds and Borders) on a white base.  I set it aside while I die cut the large word Merry die from green cardstock twice, stacked them up, and stamped the words from Christmas Backgrounds on it.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment (Christmas Greetings) on a white panel, and glued on the "Merry".  I stamped a tree (Oh, Christmas Tree ) on scrap paper, cut it out, popped it up on my main panel, and added some red enamel dots.  I tied silver cording on it before adhering my main panel and a black cardstock strip on my striped base.
Make sure you stop by the Whimsy Blog for all the details and to see how you can enter the giveaway!  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Christmas


For my Whimsy Stamps card this week, I started by stamping snowflakes from Christmas Backgrounds on a blue base.  I took a white panel, stamped off different colored circles (Circles Circles Circles) and stamped full-strength snowflakes on them (Sparkle & Shine). I added two little card stock strips and a white twine bow to finish it.

Christmas Greenery

I started by stamping the snowfall strip from Christmas Backgrounds on a kraft base.  I then cut a white panel, angled it, and stamped the pinecones, branches, and sentiment (all from Christmas Greetings) on it.  I tied some gold cord around it, adhered it to the base, and added a thin dark brown strip. 
Christmas is only 20 days away! Thanks for stopping by.

I used the gorgeous new Happy Hanukkah set for this card.  I had to go find some inspiration to make sure I was using the set correctly.  I found lots of blues with gold, so I used that as my color scheme here. I stamped the candlelabra in gold with yellow flames, then stamped it again in blue on scrap paper.  I then cut out the candles and adhered them in their proper places.  A yellow strip stamped with the stripes from Basic Backgrounds and Borders and a little twine finish it off.

Sparkly Christmas

I pulled out some glitter card stock and gold card to make this week's Whimsy Stamps card.

I stamped Christmas Backgrounds on my main panel, then stamped some purple snowflakes (Sparkle & Shine) on it. I cut two circles and layered the sentiments on it (merry word die, Christmas Greetings). The merry was cut from purple glitter card stock, and it's so pretty! I attempted to layer the gold cording artistically under the words :)
