Watercooler Wednesday #125 – Kath’s Christmas Challenge

We have a fun new challenge today over at Watercooler Wednesday!

See. Christmas in June (almost July)!

After rummaging through my current items, I realized that this intricate santa carried over! So, here we go –

libbystamps, stampin up, Detailed Santa Thinlits, Holly Berry Happiness, Christmas, WWCPretty non-traditional I’d say!

Ssssshhhhh. Simple too!

I literally cut the focal image out and adhered it to the Blushing Bride card base.

Stamped a sentiment and finished it off with some baker’s twine. A stack of these could be created in no time, really.

So. You feeling the non-traditional Christmas spirit? If so, join up with our challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! Challenges are so much fun to play along with!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Holly Berry Happiness
  • Framelits – Detailed Santa
  • Card Stock – Blushing Bride, Basic Black
  • Ink – Memento Black
  • Other – Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine
Happy Stampin’

Stunning Silver Santa

I’ve got a wonderful card share for you today. It was designed for Create with Connie and Mary.

Here is our color challenge for the week –

Some real pretty, pretty colors!

I wanted to make a card that really showcased these colors. And, this is what I thought was fitting –

An elegant Santa card!

If only the pictures would just show how pretty this card is!

I decided to go with a 5 x 5 card, a little bigger than the Santa Thinlit. The dimensionals between each layer add some ‘pop’ to the card.

I used some silver and white twine from a previous Paper Pumpkin. It was just the last detail the card needed!

So, what do you think? Isn’t it lovely? I’d love to read what you think!

You can always head over to Create with Connie and Mary and see what the other designers have created. Perhaps we will inspire you to join us this week!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – none
  • Card Stock – Whisper White, Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum

I created this nice holiday decor item –

libbystamps, stampin up, Red Foil, Detailed Santa Thinlits, Christmas frame

…..a sweet holiday frame using the Santa Thinlits and a Paper Pumpkin frame from a few years back.

I went a little non-Christmas with this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Silver Foil, Large Numbers Framelits, Frosted Medallion, Candy Cane Lane DSP, date book, Bermuda Bay 1/8 Stitched Ribbon It’s a journal/memory keeper for the new upcoming year!

See it open –

On the one side, the pages are preprinted to write in the date. On the inside cover I stamped a sentiment to remember and cherish special days.

The added page marker is a nice touch too! I just adhered the ribbon with Tear & Tape to inside back cover.
