Christmas Wishes with Trim the Tree Whimsy

It feels sooooo good to rubber stamp!!! 🙂

I had a fabulous week with family while celebrating Thanksgiving.  But now the dust has settled and I’m back into my regular routine – ie. I’m in my craft room rubber stamping – and I’m in heaven!

My card today was inspired by the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #229. PPA229I was tickled with the whimsical look of the circles.  And since I adore our Trim the Tree DSP, and love my collection of Stampin’ Up! circle punches, I thought the two design elements would be a perfect marriage for this challenge.

And I ask you … what says “Christmas” better than our Cherry Cobbler Chevron ribbon?  It screams “candy canes” to me.  Makes me happy! And I thought the “twinkle” of the rhinestones completes the magical essence of this special holiday!

It’s amazing how you can create easy and beautiful projects with any of our DSP packs and punches.  With very little stamping needed, and even at short notice, you can create an impressive stack of ready-to-go cards – that will amaze any receiver!

If you feel your project needs a “filler” but you don’t want any additions to overpower the main features, consider tone-on-tone. In this case I punched small Whisper White circles and layered them on the Whisper White background.  Subtle, but lovely.

  1. Fantastic work with this week’s sketch! I love how you used the chevron ribbon – I have difficulties coming up with ways to use it that look nice. I’ll definitely be CASEing your approach! Thanks for playing along with PPA this week!
