Stampin’ up a Storm

What have you been up to this weekend?  I have been stampin’ like a crazy gal.  It has put a great big smile on my face – which I needed, because my bookclub book was so sad this month.  Ugh!!  But stamping always cheers me up.

For my project today, I am sharing a holiday card that I made for my sweet friend, Kimberly.

I had so much fun making it — not only because it was a break from my downer book, but because I used a card sketch!  The sketch is PCCCS174 (click here for details on the Paper Craft Crew).  Here was what the sketch looks like:

PCCCS-162-205-004

Tip: I flipped the sketch upside down.  Feel free to change up sketches to make them work for YOUR card.  Also, to give the bird color depth, I stamped him first in Crumb Cake and then Soft Suede.

Supplies Used:

Stamp:  Joyful Season (139770)
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobber
Paper: Season of Cheer DSP, Pool Party, Whisper White

Have a fantastic week,
Rina

  2. I love how you flipped the sketch, Rina. Stamping the shadow behind the popped up cardinal is perfect – it gives the card such depth! Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew! ~Deborah
