Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Well it’s not quite Christmas yet, but don’t blink to hard – it might just sneak up on you!
On this card I’ve cut out the sentiment using the X-large Oval punch and layered it on a sizzlit frame from the Lots of Tags sizzlit collection. 


A sketch challenge with the Christmas theme was on the cards at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week. I used the Boho Blossoms punch to create some flower windows in the plain panel to reveal the designer paper underneath.

It gave me a chance to use some new Stampin Up colours called Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit. It’s also given me a chance to use some new papers too – this one is from the Comfort Cafe series. These will all be available in a few days time when the new 2012-2013 Annual Catalogue goes live on September 1st.


I even had a few left-overs to decorate the inside of this card – using the Gumball Green cardstock and some Summer Starfruit coloured Boho Blossom punch flowers. Thanks for stopping by – I hope you like my little preview of some of the new items from Stampin’ Up which are available after September 1st.

Great take on the challenge Vicki. I really love how you used the punch to showcase that beautiful DSP & then to use the punched flowers inside - fantastic! Thanks for joining us this week at Sunny Challenges & Creations

I love the punched windows to show the gorgeous DSP underneath. It is fun playing with new things and the new in-colours are beautiful. Thanks for playing along at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.
