Just a quick post this evening to show you my latest efforts. I used sketch #11 from Freshly Made Sketches and all neutrals (gold is neutral, isn't it?) to make this card for Shopping Our Stash.
I tried to use a never-been-inked stamp (there's one in Creative Elements that coordinates nicely with the Mocha Morning designer series paper strip) but it didn't really seem to fit on this card. They will be together one day, though! Stamp sets are Bells & Boughs and Delightful Decorations. Ink is Versamark (embossed with gold) and Crumb Cake. Card stock is Very Vanilla (both smooth and textured), Brushed Gold, and Soft Suede. I used my 3/4" circle punch for the sentiment.
This card nearly made itself with the combination of colors from The Paper Players, sketch #167 from Clean and Simple Stamping, and the theme prompt for a silhouette from Less is More:
Jingle Belles prompt!
Stop by the blogs I've linked to and check out all the great ideas from other stampers. Better yet, join in the fun by linking up cards you've made!
