Welcome to the third post of my November Artisan Design Team projects for Stampin' Up! Today I have two cards to share with you. The first one has a lot of sparkle and dimension in real life. I love the Silver Glimmer Paper. It almost looks like diamonds in real life! I diecut a small strip of this paper, and used it along the edge of my patterned paper. I stamped 3 red ornaments, folded each one in half, and then adhered them all back to back. For the green ornament, I stamped two, punched the center out of one and then used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the center. I also used markers to get a multi-color greeting.
Here is a close-up of the ornament and greeting.
Here is a hybrid card that I made using MDS for some of the elements, the peppermint jar specifically. I used the digital Sweets for the Sweet stamp set to make a layered section of peppermints in both Real Red and Primrose Petals that would fit inside the jar. I printed them out, and then die cut them with the jar shape from the Cannery Set Framelits Dies. I stamped the jar in white Stazon onto a Medium Window Sheet, and then die cut it with the jar shape. I also adhered the red Candlelight Christmas Designer Fabric to a Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, and then die cut the jar lid.
I stamped and die cut the candy cane from Scentsational Christmas in White Stazon onto the Medium Window Sheet, and adhered it over a die cut Real Red candy cane shape. Then, I layered the candy cane, jar lid and jar together, and tied it with some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. A stamped greeting folded into a banner shape, and a piece of white cardstock cut to look like a table cloth.
I love this monochromatic card, but then I love red! It is one of my favorite colors. You'll be able to tell that also after seeing my Facebook project for this month. Don't forget to check out the other Stampin' Up 2012 Artisan Design Team blogs for their projects for October. You can find the full list of their blogs in the sidebar to the right. And, at the end of the month, Stampin' Up will feature 10 additional projects (one from each of us) on their Facebook page! Thanks for stopping by!
