Cozy Christmas HSS221

Pin It Now!
The new Christmas goodies have inspired me today, along with Hand Stamped Sentiments' latest sketch, which is AWESOME. I adore the vintage feel of the Home For Christmas collection!  The Designer Series Paper coordinates so well with this old fashioned stamp set. I'll be spending LOTS of time with these!
I used lots of DSP from this pack to embellish my card, and absolutely no ribbon or big shot products!  That is really unusual for me.  I like the layers, the patterns work well together.  Great paper pack!!!

Here's the lovely sketch!  Click below to play along. I'd love to see what you do!  
STAMPS:  Cozy Christmas
INK:  Mossy Meadow, Baked Brown Sugar, Pool Party
PAPER:  Home For Christmas, Silver Glimmer paper
EMBELLISHMENTS:  Basic rhinestones

Get Well Soup HSS220

Pin It Now! Keepin' it simple with a big, easy stamp on a clean background today.  Get Well Soup is an excellent stand-alone stamp!  For the latest color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, I added a strip of black striped paper, sponged with Daffodil Delight, and cut away a small portion of the card front so it shows inside and out.  Used an Aqua Painter to color the teacup, and sponged Tangerine Tango on a heart die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
I fussy cut the teacup and popped it up, as well as the glimmer heart.  My Sahara Sand marker was used to add some shading. Finally, the metallic thread wrap with an antique brad. 
What do you think of this color combo?  Come on over to HSS and play along, I'd love to see what you do!
Have a blessed & creative day! ~ Erika
