Hi Stampers, I was absent from the blog hop last week. We met up with our 11 month old grandson and family for a little vacation. I came home late last night and got up running with my card classes are in full swing too. Today I am using the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set and matching punch. I love punches so this set was perfect for me!
Here was the sketch for the week:
Stampin Up “Holly Berry Happiness”:
Here is the card recipe:
Card Base: Real Red 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4
Mat: Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 Th sentiment was inked in Real Red and then embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder
Strip Mat: Garden Green 1-5/8 x 5-1/4
DSP Strip: Candy Cane Lane 1-1/2 x 5-1/4 I wrapped some Real Red and Garden Green Bakers Twine around this before it was adhered to the white mat.
The Art Piece:
I cut a real red scalloped circle from the circle framlits and then cut a coordinating whisper white piece to go on the top.
Using Garden Green and Old Olive ink I stamped the holly berry cluster onto the white circle and stamped the images in with the coordinating stamps.
After that was complete I also stamped some individual leaves using the same inks and punched them out with the Holly Berry punch. The little holly leaves were adhered with come glue dots. After the art piece was done I adhered the circle with dimensionals.
The Finishing Details:
I added some Real Red Enamel dots and Rhinestones to the cluster of holly leaves and topped it off with a Real Red and Garden Green bakers twine bow.
More close ups:
I added the coordinating sentiment in Real Red ink and added the Garden Green and Old Olive Bow!
