Clean and Simple Merry Medley for PP322

Hi!  Today I have a clean and simple card for this week's Paper Players Challenge.  Here is my card for the challenge:

And here is the banner for the challenge:

My card is basically a one layer card with a fancy embellishment.  My Emerald Envy card base is embossed with Emerald Envy ink to make the text more noticeable.  I used the Merry Medley Stamp 
to stamp my background.

The embellishment consists of pine boughs cut from gold paper using the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies, a bow cut from Emerald Envy Cardstock using the same thinlets, and an ornament which has been die cut and sewn using the Festive Stitching Thinlets Dies.  I used gold twine from the Baker's Twine Trio Pack and Real Red Twine from the Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine Pack.

Happy stampin',

Ornate Ornaments for GDP062

Hello again,  I felt so energized after the first card that I made that I made a second one!  This one is inspired by the Global Design Project Sketch for this week.  Here's my card:

And here's the sketch that got my fingers itching to create:

Christmas Trees for FMS263

Hello,  It's been almost a month since I've last blogged.  I've been recovering from a difficult surgery.  I felt pretty good today so I decided to play along with this week's FMS sketch.  Here's my card:

And here's the sketch that inspired me:

Here are the details:

  • The trees are cut from the Presents and Pine Cones DSP 
  • It's hard to see, but I used the swirl from the Star of Light Stamp Set on the upper half of my card.
  • The sentiment is from the Stitched With Cheer stamp set.  I love the way it looks embossed with Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder!
  • The Emerald Envy Ribbon is a preview from the new Occasion's Catalog!  You can order it beginning January 4th.
