CCM Saturday Blog Hop - On the Ground

 Good Morning, Stampers!


The Create with Connie and Mary design team is wrapping up
July with this week's blog hop - on the ground.


I'm mixing a little current in with a sneak peek from the upcoming
mini catalog for my card today. The trees from the Evergreen Elegance
stamp set are so gorgeous -  love the details in the branches!
 I added the new Merry Melody embossing
folder for the background. I embossed  the card front first, then I gently wiped 
my Whisper White ink pad on top to add ink to the raised ares, 
Finally, I cut the doily from brushed gold metallic paper using
the Encircled in Beauty dies and added the sentiment
stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. **TIP** Use the Shimmer White
cardstock for extra pretty holiday cards!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Evergreen Elegance
Ink: Whisper White, Shaded Spruce, Smoky Slate
Paper: Crumb Cake, Shimmer White, Brushed Gold Metallic
Accessories: Encircled in Beauty dies, Merry Melody embossing folder, Layering Circle dies

rubberFUNatics Card Challenge #146

 Good Morning, Stampers!


It's FRIDAY! Time for a new rubberFUNatics Card 
Challenge! This week, we are creating a card using letters.
It's a great way to personalize, add a little interest or create
a word or phrase to any project.


What do you think of this background stamp Festive Foliage?
It was so much fun to color! So relaxing and fun to do!

I started with a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
I laid all the letters on top and ran it thru the Big Shot.
Then, I removed the letters and stamped the image using 
Tuxedo Black ink and colored using Stampin' Blends.

I then adhered the panel to the Real Red card base using Stampin'
Dimensionals and added the "Christmas: die cut from Gold
Metallic paper. To finish it off, I added a few Real Red rhinestone "berries".


SU!pplies:
Stamps: Festive Foliage
Ink: Tuxedo Black
Paper: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Gold Metallic
Accessories: Playful Alphabet dies, Word Wishes dies, Real Red Rhinestones
Stampin' Blends: Real Red, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Crumb Cake, Old Olive
