PP528 Holly Jolly

Hi everyone!  It's Sunday and Valentine's Day!  Happy Valentine's to you!  Jaydee is our Paper Players hostess today and she has a lovely color challenge for us all:

So pretty!  The prompt feels heart-felt, but I went in another direction:

The Jingle Belles have a "text" challenge this week, so this paper in Poppy Parade and Blushing Bride came immediately to mind!  My card is 6 1/4" x 3 3/4"; the base is Blushing Bride and I cut a panel of the print paper to fit.  I stamped my Santa in Memento ink, paper piecing his face and hat, then adding a pompom of Silver glimmer paper.  I also added some Zig Silver Painty pen to his beard, although it just looks gray here:

I used a few dies to create the sentiment, backing the "holiday" with some more Silver glimmer paper:

The "have a" is from one of SU's very first photopolymer sets, Endless Birthday Wishes!  Everything was mounted on a Whisper White panel diecut with the Sweetly Stitched dies!  I actually did another card with these colors but I FORGOT the black!!!  So maybe I'll share that with you later!  Meanwhile, stop over to the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers created with these colors!  If they inspire you, share your creation with us as well!  Can't wait to see it!  Thanks for popping in today!  

Wayne took Cassidy Valentine-card shopping!  What a good step-dad!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Very cute...Christmas still happening...YAY! Just saw older post ...your Valentine..would not have noticed the background words were upside down if you had not pointed it out. such a great idea with the white wash. This plank eb folder is one of the hundreds that I don’t with so many keeps going. That’s our craft.

Your Christmas card is actually quite appropriate as I look out over the fresh 4 inches of snow!! Also very, very cute! LOve that DSP!

Great card for both challenges. You have such a wonderful way of coordinating all your elements. Happy Valentines Day!

The perfect paper and an awesome way to use these colors, LeAnne!

Oh my word, I love this card so much. You can put my name on the back for next year. LOL! Love the DSP, the fun sentiment and the Santa with his silver ball on his hat! Thanks for making me smile! So happy Cassidy has such a great family to show her love! Have a special day, My Friend!

LeAnne, when I first saw this card I smiled because I didn't expect to see Christmas!! What a refreshing card and so beautifully done, especially the sentiment font mixing. I love everything about this but Santa's sparkly silver pompom is my favorite! Enjoy your week.

Amanda Mertz said...

I love Christmas all year round! The details on your card are so fun; the silver beard and bit of glimmer peeking out from the the 'holiday' especially! Have a great week!

Nancy said...

Look at you adding another Christmas card to your stockpile! I wish I would have joined you but my mind didn't go in that direction. That Santa stamp is darling and you can just tell he is definitely jolly! Perfect die-cut greeting too! Tale care!

Ann Schach said...
