Stamp Ink Paper 75 Holiday Cheer

Hello again, everyone!  If you're looking for my Try Stampin on Tuesday post, it's here.  

It's week three as a Stamp Ink Paper guest designer, and I am having a blast!  I love their challenges! Look at this gorgeous color combo:

One thing about being a demo for many years is that trends that faded away sometimes have a way of returning!  I still have copper embossing powder and Brushed Copper cardstock from way back when, so I pulled them out for this little number:

I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps as well as the inspiration photo from Inspired by All the Little Things:


and kept everything pretty simple so those pretty colors could shine through!  I used a bottle brush tree image from Papertrey (Joyful Christmas), stamped in Copper Encore and Pool Party inks on a square of white cardstock diecut with SU's Stitched Shapes dies:

I heat embossed the base of the tree as well as a star, which was popped up on a dimensional.  I also added some punched "ornaments" from a scrap of the Brushed Copper cardstock.  The sentiment (Verve's Joyous Noel) was also heat embossed and diecut with the same SU die set:

The vertical panel is a piece of Brushed Copper cardstock that was diecut on the edges with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders die.  And my sweet friend Jane from See Jane Stamp always uses her Papertrey Linen plate, which reminded me that I had one too....SOMEWHERE.  I found it by accident, so I used it to give my Pool Party base a little texture.  The plate has two sides, so I am not sure if this is the linen side or the canvas side...maybe someone can help me out (I think it's the canvas side!).  Finally, I heat embossed a sentiment from the same Verve set on the inside:

I hope you'll play along this week with our awesome color palette and be sure to stop by the Stamp Ink Paper blog to see the fabulous creations the DT made!!

Some more antics from Cassidy....doesn't everyone play the harmonica while lying on the kitchen floor as your grammy is trying to make dinner?

And she dressed herself today----picked out this outfit on her own----I choose my battles!  If she wants to wear florals and stripes, no big deal! At least she's color coordinated!  Enjoy your day!

Reminds me totally of Kelsey when she was that age! Well at 23 now she still lays on the kitchen floor when i'm trying to cook supper or put dishes away! Let's hope Cassidy outgrows that laying on the floor thing because my Kelsey has NOT! Hahaha! TFS and and have a wonderful day! :)
