Joy - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #283

It's amazing how quickly the weeds sprouted in the flower beds with the rain we got yesterday.  My intent today was to go out and deadhead the flowers that had finished blooming, but quickly realized that my task was also going to include weeding. So, two hours later I'm back here at my computer posting a card I made earlier in the day for Try Stampin' on Tuesday .  The added theme was "surprise" so I chose Christmas.


 

This is the first time I have used this stamp set and I'm seeing endless possibilities for it - like making little ornaments for the 3D Christmas trees I am making.

The base card is Cherry Cobbler, layered with Whisper White.  Adhered to this unit is a 1 1/2" Cherry Cobbler ribbon.  After the card is completed a bow is made and adhered to the right side of the card,

In the middle is a panel that extends the entire length of the card front.  This panel consists of a 1 1/4" piece of Warmth and Cheer DSP  layered with Red Glimmer paper.

In the center are three scalloped Cherry Cobbler  circles.  The images in the circles are from the stamp set "Every Occasion".

(The middle circle has the image of 2 Christmas bells stamped on Whisper White, punched with a 1 1/4" circle punch before applying it to the Cherry Cobbler circle.  Early Espresso and Real Red SU markers were used to ink up the stamp.
The bottom circle depicts the image of a wreath which is stamped in Garden Green ink.  It was punched with a 1" circle punch and adhered to the cherry cobbler circle.  The image of the house was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White, cut out, and adhered to the side of the wreath image.  The windows were coloured with a Crushed Curry marker.

Dazzling diamonds was applied to various areas of the images in all three circles.

The sentiment is non SU, stamped on Whisper White, matted with Cherry Cobbler and adhered to the card front on the left hand side using dimensionals.
