Stampin' Joy

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be getting this week done! And so is my son. He has finals this week. And I am just looking forward to Christmas break! Lots of fun stuff going on at school this week. So I really need to get my gifty items ready to take to school. Hmmm... I should have done that this weekend and totally got sidetracked. Yikes! Time to get focused and get them done! 

My title for this post came from the inspiration I got from a Stampin' Weekly Update. Stampin' Up! sends out a weekly (or bi weekly) update with a sample. The last one I got had a sample that had this same basic layout. I wanted to try it out using Christmas stamps. Super simple!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • On another piece of Whisper White, stamp the dots and stars image from Holly Jolly Greetings using Smoky Slate ink
  • Stamp the "wishing you" using Cherry Cobbler ink
  • Create a banner from a piece of Merry Moments designer paper and sponge the edges using Smoky Slate ink then adhere to panel
  • Adhere a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock
  • Adhere panel to card base using dimensionals
  • Stamp the "joy" onto a piece of Whisper White and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Add rhinestones to card
