Scentsational Season Christmas

This is one of my favorite sets - and the reason is the Framelits set that matches it!  This duo makes your cardmaking quick and soooo much easier than cutting everything out.  Oh yes, I just love playing with these matching stamp and Framelit sets!!  It's one of the bestest things that Stampin' Up! has been doing as far as I'm concerned.  Here's what I worked on last week with it...

Stamps:  Scentsational Season, Joyous Celebrations, and More Merry Messages
Ink:  Garden Green and Daffodil Delight
Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red, Garden Green, and Be Of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Big Shot with Holiday Collection Framelits and Perfect Polka Dot TIEF, 1" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Square Punch, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Glue Dots, and Dimensionals
Isn't this a bright and happy Christmas card?   I love using unusual color combos for Christmas cards, but then I have to come back to the traditional reds and greens.   It just reminds me of all the happy Christmases spent with my family growing up.  And this card has a whimsical feeling that would be just fine for kids and Christmas memories, don't you think?
I love all the different bits and pieces of the design coming together here. With the circles and strips, and layers and embellishments, there's lots of interest to keep you looking.

Okay, here I go with another picture flipped on it's side.  I'm going to scream if this doesn't quit, 'cuz I can't get it right side up!  Anyway, I used a skinny strip of the Real Red cardstock inside the card to mimic the strips of DSP on the front of the card to give it a different look.

That's it for today.  Hope you're enjoying your Sunday and finding time to relax and refresh yourself.  It's important to give yourself a break and just have a little fun stamping!  Hugs,  Sharon
