Not Just 4 Christmas

Ann needed a nice card for my favorite guy to give someone at work.  This is the card I helped her design.


It uses the Vintage Ornaments #1 Stencil (#117580) from the Stampin' Up! Definitely Decorative Mini Catalog (that you can see here).  She applied the ink with a sponge dauber.  A tweak with a Clear Rhinestone Brad just sets it off, don't you think?  (That was MY idea!)

The one above was done with the Texturz plate #11542, but when I went outside to guard the house for awhile, I came back & Ann had made these other 3 cards using the Gratuitous Graffiti background stamp #111636.  


She just may have done well with her independent design change.  What do YOU think?  Just remember to pounce up & down when you use your sponge dauber.  Then let us know what Stampin' Up! card idea YOU come up with!

Remember to leave the milk, cookies & reindeer biscuits out tonight!  Late tonight, we'll be drawing the winner for the blog candy from those who left a comment on this post.  Come back tomorrow after you've opened your presents to find out if it was you!

  1. Happy Christmas Eve Stamper & Ann!!!! Love this card, it is so simple yet elegant! Wow Stamper, you have an eye for the “bling!!” I like both ways, I think either way gives the card the right touch!!

    PS: Rascal is so busy running through the yard, I tried to get him to come and look at your posts, but he refused!!! Well he is only 6 months old, I guess he has to explore EVERYWHERE and EVERYTHING! Fritz just looks at him, then turns around and waddles away. I’m hoping Fritz comes around soon, I did see them touch noses the other day!!!! Unfortunately, Rascal’s human Murray has a sore throat, so I think I will have to do walking duty today!

  2. Beautiful cards, Ann! Stamper’s idea for the bling was fabulous!

    Merry Christmas to all of you!
    Big hugs from FL!
