Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week. My project today features the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set and the retiring Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper. We are all working with a Color Challenge this week. Here is my project:
And these are the colors we are using:
All of the colors on the list are featured in the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper. It is retiring this month and just sold out, as of yesterday. If you were lucky enough to grab some before it was gone forever, here’s an idea for a quick & easy card. I love how the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas works with this particular pattern in the collection, don’t you?
Use Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set on a panel of White card stock. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to a panel of Pool Party card stock. Then adhere the layer to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base using Liquid Glue.
Cut a panel of the patterned paper and adhere to a mat of Poppy Parade card stock using Liquid Glue. Adhere the layer to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tie a bow with the Misty Moonlight/silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhere it to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot.
If you wish, use your Paper Snips to fussy-cut a few of the houses from a separate piece of the patterned paper. Adhere them to the card front over the matching houses using Stampin’ Dimensionals. If you look closely you will see I did just that on three of the little houses. For a quick & easy card, you can omit this step.
Use Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in the center of a panel of White card stock. Adhere the stamped panel to a mat of Pool Party card stock before adhering to the inside of the car base, using Liquid Glue for all. Add one more fussy-cut house image to the bottom left corner using Liquid Glue.
