September 2011 Christmas Card Challenge + 2

I started out to get a jump on my September cards for the SCS Christmas Card Challenge, and ended up doing 2 other challenges with it.  The layout is the current SCS Sketch Challenge 346, and it also is used for the SCS Stamp 2 Spend Challenge #3.  I picked out the stamp first and then went looking for a layout and thought the 346 would be perfect.  I love Whiff of Joy stamps and hadn't used this one yet.
The stamp is Whiff of Joy - Uru and Candycane; sentiment is also WOJ - Season's Greetings.  I also purchased the matching die that I used to cut out the tag - really cool.

The card base, mat, and sentiment are SU Cherry Cobbler; dp is Basic Gray, Figgy Pudding collection - Red Ryder (love it).  I stamped on GF white using Memento Tuxedo Black.  I stamped the sentiment with SU Craft White. Not sure where I got the ribbon, but it says it's Robert Stanley Collection.  The flowers are from Prima's Holiday Poinsettia collection when a dot of gold bling in the center.  I love bling.  The sentiment is popped up using dimentionals.

Of course I colored it with my Copics - E0000, E01, E02; E35, E37, E39, R39, R32, R35, R37, G09, W0.

I dug out a bottle of White Smooch which is pearlized ink and used that on the candycane which gives it a little glimmer.

  1. This is a really cute card Margaret! I love the colors, that sketch you used & the adorable stamp....excellent work Hun & TFS!!!

  2. How fun is that little elf?? the shimmer on the candycane is just the right touch. You've inspired me to dig out my Christmas stamps and get some ideas flowing.

  3. Hi Margaret! Your card is adorable. I love the colors and the red flower gives a wonderful texture.
