White Christmas

Hello everyone,

Only 42 days until Christmas!!  And it goes so quickly!  Have you started preparing?  A new challenge started today at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to help you with those holiday cards, tags or any other Christmas paper crafts you might be making this year.  Our theme this month is white on white (WoW).  For this challenge, you can use a coloured image so long as everything else on your project is white.  I had a beautiful new poinsettia stamp that I was anxious to use, so I opted to go for an all white card:

I stamped the image twice on vellum and embossed it in white.  I layered the petals, curling them to give dimension.  I added lots of different textures and glitter to make it interesting.

The team has created some absolutely stunning cards to inspire you, so pop on over to the CASS blog to feast your eyes!  This month we are sponsored by Christmas at Sweet Stampin'!  Details on the prize can be found on the CASS blog.  I hope you will come and play with us!  I am looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous white creations :)


Paper - white textured card, white pearlized card, white vellum
Stamps - Stampin' Up 
Dies - Stampin' Up (Merry), Tim Holtz (banner), Spellbinders (frame) and Memory box (flourish)
Other - white and silver embossing powder, pearls, glitter, white stickles, and the little white rose in the center of the poinsettia was made with a Stampin' Up mold and dusted with dazzling diamonds to make it look snowy - I love it!

White on White, my favorite!! Beautiful. And yes I have started to mentally, mostly get ready for Christmas. I like to figure out 'what' I am buying or making and all that before I hit the store. Just too many choices. I also have a naughty and nice list...most of the kids get upgraded last minute LOL.
