Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Festive Celebrations

Welcome to the 16th Edition of the
Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects from stampers from around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

This month our theme is Festive Celebrations!!! I chose to work with the Merry Patterns stamp set, which you can't get anymore, but hopefully you earned it for free in September or October...and this will be another idea you can use!  I chose to make a simple card, it reminds me of a pile of presents in plain brown wrapping paper.

The stamping on this card is very simple, the outline images were stamped with an Early Espresso ink pad, and the fill-in images were stamped with a Soft Suede ink pad. The base card is Crumb Cake card stock, and for the upper layer, the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (with the Big Shot) was used on Soft Suede card stock. The reindeer is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock that was cut out with the Lots of Labels Framelits (again, using the Big Shot).

Then, I added some subtle bling using some Basic Pearls that I colored with a Bronze Sharpie before applying to the card. I also added the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape, layering one washi over the other. I really like the muted, but shiny, look of the metallics with these neutral colors.
