Chock-Full of Cheer... In May

Well, I am finally, *finally*, feeling pretty much normal, and back to my old stampin' spirit! With the new catalogue preorder I also ordered the Chock-Full of Cheer stamp set as well as the *gorgeous* Be of Good Cheer DSP. There's a super fun challenge called the Merry Monday Challenge. It's Christmas, all year round! How fun :) The idea is that if you do the challenge week after week, you have 52 cards at Christmas :)

So I have a Christmas card for you today! And yes, I know it's May. The fun sketch I used is to the left. The card I created is below.


Tips & Tricks:

*Do you love the DSP? That's the Be of Good Cheer DSP in the new cattie. It uses Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and the new In Color Gumball Green in it. Love. It.
*Love the way I can use our punches with the Chock-Full of Cheer stamp set and make an easy two-colored ornament.
*See that ribbon? What do you think? It's the new In Color Ribbon. It's going to be available in all 5 new In Colors. It's Satin. It's stitched and easy to work with. It's YUMMY! Stay tuned for a Ribbon Share - 2 yards of each for only $15!
*I absolutely love the Rhinestone Jewels - they're just enough to bling up a card for very little cost. Gotta love saving those pennies!
*I may not be a green lover, but I'm really lovin' Gumball Green and used it to stamp the greeting on the same colored card stock. Tone-on-tone stamping is a great way to include a greeting without taking over the card.

Merry Early Christmas ~ 'til next time keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
