Days of Christmas: Day 6

I've decided to feature a stamp set and a Designer Series Paper. The set I am using today is called Season of Joy and the DSP is Candy Cane Christmas. I'm also adding in some of the Candy Cane Christmas fabric!

On this first card I used our Real Red 1/8" taffeta ribbon, Basic Pearls Jewel Accents and Clear Tinsel Trim. We have two colors of Tinsel Trim. Clear and Silver. The Silver is wired and the clear is not. Dont' you just love those polka dots?

This card was made using this tutorial. It's called an Easel Card. How much fun is this?! It was surprisingly easy. I used the Candy Cane Christmas fabric as I mentioned before. I tied it through one of the Candy Cane Big Designer Buttons! I love that look! I placed a Basic Pearl Jewel Accent inside the O of JOY on the image. (We have Big Designer buttons that match the Deck the Halls line in the Holiday Mini as well)

This card features a large piece of the Candy Cane Christmas DSP. I chose to emboss the poinsettia image on to Vellum Paper, cut it out with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch, and glued it to another punched out scallop circle in Whisper White cardstock. I added some of the Glimmer brads in matching colors. I tied on some Poly-Stiched ribbon in Blushing Bride and popped up the poinsettia. I also wanted to emboss my sentiment, so I inked it in Versamark first, then Baja Breeze, then embossed it with Clear embossing powder.

This last card is featuring the candy cane stripe pattern from the Candy Cane Christmas DSP. I like the simplicity of the stripes. I randomly stamped the swirl image on Garden Green cardstock along with the teenie little flower image. I stamped the swirl again in Real Red on Whisper White cardstock, then stamped the snowflake in Blushing Bride and again in Baja Breeze and punched them out with the 1" circle punch and the 1 1/4" circle punch. Tie a knot in the 1/8" Real Red Taffeta and the Clear Tinsel Trim, and it looks like an ornament!

I hope you enjoyed these cards. Come back tomorrow for more Christmas fun!
