Merry & Bright Card

Hey Stampers !

Well, there was SNOW on the ground when I woke up this morning.  So of course, that means I started watching Love Actually. LOL Christmas Movies are sort of an addiction of mine. I LOVE them and there are like, 30 of them I watch every year (some more than once). So, I guess that has started for me already this year !! Hahaha. Last night, my friend Louise came up to do some stamping with me !! I made 4 Christmas cards too !! Pretty good for one evenings work !! Here is one of them. I CASEd this idea from Mindy Bingamon over at She is one of my FAVORITE stampers ever and I use her projects for inspiration all the time !! Here is my version of her card ...

Don's you love it !?! So simple and fun. I am so in love with the Merry Minis stamp set and matching Merry Mini Punch Pack. So quick and simple ! I stamped the ornament stamps in Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Old Olive and then punched them out with the matching punch. The scalloped "tree branch" was die cut with the Large Scallop Edgelit in Old Olive. I then broke out my Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, to highlight those scallops and make my ornament strings.   Love how the line of pierced holes mimic strings or hooks, but keep the card clean and simple. 

The Happy Christmas sentiment comes from the More Merry Messages stamp set. I am getting GREAT milage out of this awesome set this Christmas, a complete must have. The Early Espresso bakers twine at the top is made super cute with the addition of a Daffodil Delight button and a bow. Love it !! I put a Crumb Cake layer onto a Crumb Cake card base, but to jazz it up a bit I sponged the layer with my Whisper White Craft Ink. A nice snowy touch I think !!really makes it pop !!

Well, I hope you like my Christmas Card today !! Thanks a lot for stopping by and Happy Stamping !!
