MONDAY ALERT: time to play along with our Creative Challenge Club Sketch!



My Creative Challenge Club CCC21 card submission features the Ornamental Pine stamp set (page 27) and the Under the Tree Specialty Designer paper (page 5) in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog .

You can also view/purchase the supplies for this project in my online store here, or click the links at the bottom of this post.


I wasn't sure what to do with the Circles in this weeks sketch… but then thought of ornaments, so I punched out 3 circles using Stampin' Up! Circle punches (1-1/4", 1-3/4" and 2"). Do you want to know how I created this custom paper I used for the Ornaments?  See my tip below!

The folded card is Cherry Cobbler, and the Kraft piece on top is 4"x5-1/4" and is the Kraft Cardstock on pg 192 in the annual Stampin' Up! Catalog (#133674).  The pine boughs are stamped with Garden Green.

So if you are looking at your package of Under the Tree Paper or you are looking at it in the catalog and wondering how it's possible that I have different colors than you do…. voila.. easy peasy.. take a sponge dauber, ink pad of your choice, and sponge ink all over the kraft colored side of the paper!!!

Do you see the "BEFORE AND AFTER"!?

Under-the-tree-color-your-own-paper-stampin-up I sponged Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and Old Olive onto the Kraft side of the paper to create custom colored papers!


Do you ever struggle with tying a bow on a tiny button? I do.. here is my solution:
