A Holly Jolly Christmas

Recently, my DH has become helpful with embellishing my cards. At first, it was cute. Well.... it's not so cute sometimes.

CAS fans... close your eyes for a moment.

DH is not a CAS lover. He LOVES embellies! This card was to be a CAS card. As you see, it's not! LOL!

Unity Stamps:
Bright & Merry Winter Wishes
Paper: whisper white, bashful blue, kraft dsp, bashful blue dsp, Thoroughly Modern dsp, Summer Picnic dsp
Ink: bashful blue, rose red, sahara sand, SU bashful blue marker
Accessories: taffeta ribbon, brads, Martha Stewart snowflake & edge punches, rhinestone stickers, dimensionals

Winter Wonderland

Unity Hip Hop Color Challenge: green, red, blue

I combined Bright & Merry Winter Wishes with the candy from the July KOTM. I'm unsure of the corner image. If I had to do this over, I'd stamp some swirls at side ends... maybe to reach the next corner?

Unity Stamps: July KOTM, Bright & Merry Winter Wishes
Paper: real red, brocade blue, white
Ink: black, SU brocade blue marker, Copic markers: B23 Phthalo blue, R29 lipstick red, YG25 celadon green, YG11 Mignonette
Accessories: ribbon, white gel pen, SU circle punch, Marvy scallop circle punch, CM custom cutting system

This card measures 4.5 square. (That happened by accident.)


SCS Sketch Challenge #242

I made the vase by punching the chocolate CS with SU's designer label punch. I then cut the punched shape in 1/2.

Stamps: Unity July KOM
Paper: white, real red, summer sun, chocolate chip, unknown dp
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU summer sun marker, Copic markers (Y08 Acid yellow, YR04 chrome orange, R29 lipstick red, V12 pale lilac, YG23 new leaf, and no shadow color... I forgot! Yikes!)
Accessories: Martha Stewart edge punch, SU designer label punch (for the vase), ribbon, brad, CB Swiss Dots (Wish RAK), dimensionals
