Joy & Noel

Hello there!  Are you needing some crafting inspiration today?  We have a fun and easy sketch over at the Pals Paper Arts to jump start your creativity.  Check it out, create something fun and link it up for your chance to be a PALS pick!

Have you subscribed to My Paper Pumpkin yet?  I have, and I love getting my monthly kit in the mail.  The November kit has these great holiday stamps.  I thought they would be perfect "out of the box" for this week's card.  I simply stamped, trimmed and layered on real red and cucumber crush.

The & stamp was part of the stamp set that came with the My Paper Pumpkin, I simply inked the & up with my black stampin' write marker and die cut it with the smallest circle from the circle framelits.  I have to add some gold, so out came my gold foil paper.  The smallest scallop circle punched the perfect layer.

I thought some whisper white satin ribbon would dress up my card, a quick and simple bow sits on top like a bow on a package.

Do you like the black DSP?  It is from the Happy Haunting DSP.  Why not use up what you can?  I love how crisp black looks with christmas colors, it is a great neutral.

I hope you are inspired to jump start your Christmas card stash using this fun and versatile sketch.  This card came together in no time using this sketch, we would love to see your take on it, so please play along!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired today, enjoy!

So cute! I love the polka dot background for those cute sentiments. That beautiful bow is the perfect touch to "tie" it all together!

Very striking card Sandie! I love that you featured a bold black DSP. I have been all about non-traditional colors this year on Christmas cards. Love the PP images and the lovely bow. I may just need to CASE this card :)
