Stamp Ink Paper 79

Happy Tuesday again, peeps!  If you're looking for my TSOT post, it's here.  Today is my last challenge for the Stamp Ink Paper team, and Justin has a great one for us....forced me out of my Christmas card-making endless loop:

No automatic alt text available.

I just got some SAB goodies...yes, it's coming up to that time of the year!  In fact, I have a whole box of goodies that I haven't even delved into yet...too much Christmas going on!  But I did pull out Delicate Details and So Very Much, because I needed a thank-you card for a new customer.  Here we go:

Sweet Sugarplum is such a pretty shade, so I decided to create my card using it as my card base. I stamped the sentiment in white craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder, then added some details from Awesomely Artistic, stamping right over top of the embossing:

and Delicate Details (LOVE this new set!):

And finally, I stamped a bird from Best Birds on thick white cardstock, diecut it out and added some very loose, light watercoloring with Sweet Sugarplum and Smoky Slate inks and an aquapainter:

I just love this little guy!  I hope you'll play with our challenge this week...I know it's a crazy time of the year but maybe you can squeeze in one more challenge!  Hope to see you at SIP!

We FINALLY got our tree up, although if this tree lasts until December 25, it will be a Christmas miracle.  It drops its needles if you just LOOK at it.  The dustbuster is a permanent fixture, plugged in and ready to use each & every day!  I am almost convinced to go artificial next year!

Of course, I had a helper!

Always clownin' around!

Enjoy your day!

Pretty card! And I have one of those boxes unopened in my craft room! My plan is to open it December 27th! (The 26th is always a day of total rest!)

I am in love with your card today, LeAnne! Such a cute bird that goes beautifully with those stamps and the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock! I bet it felt good to make some other than a Christmas card, too! That Cassidy is such a sweet, funny little girl. She brings a smile to everyone's face each day with your pictures! TFS and have a wonderful day! :)

This is such a lovely feminine card!! That new border stamp is wonderful, looks like lace trim! I'll bet Cassidy is even more excited now that the tree is up!!
