Serene Merry Christmas

Happy Saturday!  I got a chance to stamp this morning while Sydney took a nap.  I probably should have worked on some cleaning, but I haven't been able to stamp all week and needed to get crafty!  I used this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge and Sketch Challenge to make this card. I still haven't placed my new Stampin' Up order, so I was happy to see that this week's colors were all ones I had!  I'm waiting to get my check from a consignment sale to use for my new stampin' stuff!  So far I've made $245... SCORE!  I don't know that all of that will go towards crafting, but it's nice to have a little extra cash!

It seems early to think about Christmas, but since the dessert challenge for the Color Challenge was to make a Christmas card, I decided it was a good idea.  After all, Christmas will be here before any of us can blink an eye!  I always find myself scrambling at the last minute to send out my cards, and last year I didn't even send any out because I didn't have time to stamp with a newborn.  So, here's to this year and the hopes that I at least get them sent out to my family!

I used "Serene Snowflakes" for this card, which is now retired (of course.. haha).  I stamped my "background" snowflakes in Soft Sky, then I stamped my main one in Island Indigo on the main panel.  I stamped the Cherry Cobbler and smaller Island Indigo snowflakes on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut them out by hand.  I then popped them up on dimensionals.  The sentiment is from a different retired set called "Delightful Decorations".  The designer paper is also retired and called "Be of Good Cheer".  I actually have an entire pack of this that has never been opened... not sure what I thought I would be making with that, but I have it, so maybe I'll figure out how to use it up!

Here's my complete supplies list:

Stamps: Serene Snowflakes & Delightful Decorations

Ink: Island Indigo, Soft Sky, and Cherry Cobbler

Paper: Soft Sky CS, Island Indigo CS, Very Vanilla CS, Be of Good Cheer DP

Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, 3/4'' Circle Punch, 1'' Circle Punch, 1 1/4'' Circle Punch

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a terrific weekend!
