IB149 Holly Jolly Wishes

Hello peeps!  Happy's time for a new Inspired By challenge!  Check out the fun photo for this week, along with the optional sketch:

Aren't they fun?  I didn't really have any dies that said "merry & bright", but I did have some that said "holly jolly", along with a woodcut stamp, so here we go:

The woodcut was stamped in Crumb Cake, and the sentiment in Real Red and Call Me Clover cardstocks.  I diecut some holly leaves from Shaded Spruce, and added a couple of banner sentiments from the retired Endless Wishes:

The background was embossed with the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder, and I added some Holiday Rhinestones as berries!  I didn't use the IB sketch this week, but used the Try Stampin on Tuesday sketch:

I hope you'll play along with our fun challenge this week...check out all the designs at the IB blog!  See you there!

And how about a wee bit of Halloween mayhem:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Wonderfully rustic! Love the message on the piece of wood and that plaid paper! There are so delightful boys again, always adding a smile!

It's not the Christmas season until I hear Burl Ives singing Have a Holly Jolly Christmas! This is wonderful and those too scamps are adorable!

LeAnne - great holiday card! Your interpretation of our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch is full of holiday spirt - from it's sentiment, colors, and textures, to it's greenery! Thank you for sharing your talents with us at TSOT!!! -Donna

Love this - can't beat a good diecut! A neat way to use the wood slice stamp too - I always wonder what I can use that for. Off to CASE!

What a great festive card! I love the woodcut background for the "holly jolly". The embossed background is inspired - texture while maintaining the white background. Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
