Contempo Christmas and Guess What It Is?

Good Morning Everyone,

Boy I guess I’m in the mood for Christmas these days.  just love Christmas and getting the ideas rolling for my clubs, camps and classes.

New Christmas Pictures 8-16-10 005

This card Features the Contempo Christmas Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I thought a Turquoise Tree might be fun as it would be so contemporary, but wanted to add a bit of Vintage into the mix with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.

I did the Tree by Stamping in Versamark, adding Heat and Stick Powder and after Heating pouring on the Fine Cosmo Glitter and reheating for just a few seconds to set. I stamped the Tree Pot in Crumb Cake and cut it out to pop it up.

As you can see I’ve done it on an oval and then made the Turquoise border around it….can you guess what I did that with? Oh, I also added one of our new Glitter Brads that will soon be released…….and finished it off with one of my double bows made with my Magic Bow Maker…..image it can be seen and purchased on my right side bar.

I’m anxious to hear your guesses on the Turquoise Oval Border….so what do you think it is?

Hope you have a Stampinglee Good Day!

Modern Label Punch?

Modern Label Punch is my guess, too!! Boy--if so, that's alot of punching, but it looks GREAT!! Love this card!

Not sure how you did it but will be watching to find out! I'm just guessing that you used some other punch (maybe a little flower from Itty Bitty punches or even the eyelet border punch) to hide underneath and just show the edge?

Looks like the 6-petal flower from Boho Blossoms.

I don't have a clue what you used. But I do know I love the card. I didn't know you could use glitter that way with the heat and stick powder. I think I need to read what I can do with this stuff I have and don't use.

I'm guessing the eyelet border punch.

I am guessing the flowers trio. Then you glued them with 2 way glue around the oval and behind it.

I checked out my Punches and my guess would have to be the Modern Label Extra Large Punch. Just the tip of it showing, is that right? If not then you have me stumped. Beautiful use of the Tree, don't you just love this Tree? I wasn't going to get this Stamp Set at first and then at second and third glance, I just fell in love with it!!! Can't wait to play with it and see what I come up with. I also have never used the Heat & Stick Powder in that way, will definitely have to give it a try. I love the color that you used on your card, so festive looking. Great job.

MODERN LABEL PUNCH!!! That is my guess. Whatever you used is very creative. LOVE the card. It is gorgeous.

Susan said...

Love the card oh "Great Queen of White". My guess on the border is a flower punch from the Itty Bitty punches.

Hi Lee; I think you used the Scallop Oval punch and glued each piece on a separate oval to back your image piece. It is a gorgeous card by the way!!!!
