First of all, lets announce a WINNER…
Carol B. said…”Beautiful card! I love your coffee distressing idea, so clever!”
Thanks Carol, I wish I could take credit for it being my “idea”, but I was taught that by Fran Seiford , owner of Stampendous.
This week, I couldn’t stop the Stampendous stamps from hitting the ink pad. I was having a great time with all of the stamps that have been released in our new catalog, as well as some Limited Edition stamps that you can only get until they are gone. You can see the new Christmas Jumbos on Stampendous.com or click this link. The first six sets are the Limited Edition.
Here is one of my creations with Cling Jumbo Holly Season (CRS5023).
Cling Jumbo Holly Season has a large Season’s Greeting sentiment, so I chose the smaller version Cling Scrolled Season. Same stamp, only smaller. In another post, I will show a creation using the larger sentiment.
This week, my good friend Taylor Usry, was the guest hostess for the Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge. So both of the cards that I am posting today are in support of her.
My Season’s Greetings card was fun and simple to make.
First I cut my background panels to the desired size. Using embossing ink, I stamped the gorgeous Holly border stamp on the background panels and a border from the Elegant Border Perfectly Clear set on the front panel. I sprinkled Detail Gold Embossing Powder over the all of the images and heat set.
For the sentiment, same process, except I used Jade PearLustre Powder over the embossing ink. I just love the pearly sheen of PearLustre Embossing Powder.
Once all my panels were adhered to my liking, I wrapped a big red bow around it and placed what I think is a button cover, in the center of the bow.
Here is a supply list:
Paper: Killarney, Kisses, Kraft (Bazzill Basics)
Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko), Antique Linen (Ranger), Gold Krylon Pen
Extras: Ribbon (craft supply), button cover (stash)

I normally don’t use the same sketch twice, but I was loving the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge so much, I made two cards…
This card started out the same. I cut the background panels to the desired size and stamped the fabulous Chandelier Perfectly Clear and the Eiffel Tower Perfectly Clear Stamp sets. They are fabulous, take a look..
For the front panel, I chose the Lace Light Deco Border Die from Cheery Lynn Designs and cut four borders, two different colors. Once they were cut, I layered them on a skinny panel of cardstock and aged them a bit with Distress Ink.
I wrapped some coordinating shimmery seam binding around it and added a tiny sentiment from the Poppy Bottles Perfectly Clear stamp set…
I then did something that I never do. I found this darling little crown in my stash of finds, it was out of the package, so I am going to gather it may be from Tim Holtz Ideology, but can’t be sure. The tiny crown was silver, which didn’t match the little ring that my sentiment was hanging on, so I covered the crown with white pigment ink and then dipped it in the NEW Aged Gold Embossing Enamel and heat set it.
Closer look? Sure….
Oh my goodness, I just fell in love with it. I’m sure doing little things like that are old news to you pros, but I am a SLLOOWW learner.
What do you think of those colors??? I picked them up from The Play Date Café….
Here is a list of supplies that I used on my card:
Paper: Papertrey Ink
Ink: White Brilliance Ink, Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukeniko)
Die Cut: Lace Light Deco (Cheery Lynn Designs), tag punch (craft supply)
Embossing Powder: Aged Gold Embossing Enamel (Stampendous)
Extras: seam binding (Etsy), charm (Unknown)
