SIP78 Winter Holiday

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge....this week's it's a "winter holiday" challenge!  It doesn't have to be Christmas, although that's what I chose!!

I loved the photo for the RetroRubber challenge, as well as the CAS(E) This Sketch sketch:


I recently got these Prancing Deer dies (Memory Box) and thought they would look lovely against some Carta Bella Christmas Delivery paper:

I mounted the panel on a piece of Real Red cardstock cut with a deckle edge die (Spellbinders) which I then liberally coated with glue and sprinkled on some Martha Stewart glitter:

The sentiment is from Artistic Outpost, probably at least five years old, called Midwinter!  I stamped it in Always Artichoke, as well as the inside sentiment, which is from Papertrey (O Holy Night), which I believe is from 2015:

I love the colors of this as well as the pretty layout!  I hope you'll play along with our challenge as we  begin to wind down 2016!  Be sure to stop by the SIP blog and share your creation with us as well!

 Cassidy found some Snoopy and friends clings in her Advent box, so she put them on her bedroom window:


Enjoy your day!

LeAnne, this is beautiful! Love the mirrored deer - confession time: I've never used glitter! But the Peanuts gang are near the top of my favorites list! xx

A beautiful Christmas card, LeAnne! Love the adorable prancing deer and your panel they are on with the glitter! Quick & easy is my type of card! Love it!
Such a cute picture today of Cassidy and her Snoopy cling ons! She's always happy! TFS and have a great day! :)

Aw, LeAnne, this is CAS perfection!! I absolutely love those cute deer dies and the use of glitter makes everything more special, in my opinion. I really need to use it more. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again next year. Happy Holidays, my friend!

Oh LeAnne, I love this beautiful and totally CAS card, the deer die cuts look perfect with that frame, love the red glittery edge and how the stamped sentiment matches the colors of that paper.
Ok, I adore Cassidy's smiling, beautiful face, I think little kids look amazing when they have missing teeth, it's very endearing.
Love her Snoopy cling images, super cute.
Thank you for sharing with us at RETRO RUBBER, I'm sending best wishes for a Beautiful Holiday Season and a Healthy, Joyful and Prosperous 2017.
Big Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.

I adore those prancing deer, LeAnne!! They contrast so prettily against the Carta Bella paper! It's been awhile since I "deckled" my edges... will have to check my stash of tools... always found the edge interesting! The sentiments round out this card to perfection. Thanks so much for playing along with us this color inspiration challenge. We always love seeing your lovely work in our gallery. Hope your Christmas is blessed with lots of joy!
