Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 183 and Blog Candy

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I’d also like to wish my Sister Operators a wonderful Day and look forward to working with these fabulously talented Group of Ladies for another year. Thanks to our Group Mom, Selene Kempton for bringing this fabulous group together. Love ya Selene!!!!

411_blog_candy-001

In honor of Christmas the Stamping 411 Operators  wanted to offer up some Blog Candy…..so make sure to check each operators blog to see what they will be Gifting  for Christmas. How fun is that? All you have to do is leave a comment on each Operators Blog you would like to participate in. Read below for the full scoop…..

Now onto the sketch…..

Here is the sketch:SSC183

 

….and my interpretation.

Christmas and Sketch 183 030 I had so much fun building this with my new punch that will be available in January. It’s a sneak peek of what’s to come.

The set I used is called Build a Blossom and the Punch is called Blossom Petals Punch. I used some of the DSP from the Brights Pattern Pack.

The card Base is Whisper White and measures 5 1/4 x 10 1/2 and the Pretty in Pink Mat is 5 1/8 x 5 1/8. Followed with the DSP Mat cut to 5x5. I then made and Old Olive Mat that measures 4x4 and then used a piece of white embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder that measures 3 3/4 x 3 3/4. I popped that layer up with Dimensionals.  Ahhhhhhhh…then the process of building the flower. I stamped the flower petals in Regal Rose and used two of the petal stamps. then punched them out. I cut a white circle using my 1 3/8 circle punch and using glue dots started building my flower by attaching the pieces to the circle. I did roll the petals a bit on a skewer to give them a rounded natural look. The center image is stamped in Old Olive and popped up with a big glue dot. The narrow mats behind the image are Pretty in Pink and cut to 1 x 5 1/4 and the white 3/4 x 5 and stamped with Curly Cute. So there ya go…..see what you have to look forward to….

Now onto my blog candy….you will have to leave your email address in your comment on my blog to be eligible to win and an answer to my Question…..”What is my Favorite Winter Color”?

Here is what one lucky person will get…one roll of Riding Hood Red Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon and my Bow Maker….

Good Luck Everyone!!! The winner will be announced on New Years Day.

I can see that this is a "must have" stamp and the punch too! Great!! Actually, my favorite Christmas colors are blue and green together. We decorate our outside pine tree and also our inside tree and mantel with those colors. Thanks for the chance to win. Would love to try your bow maker.

What a gorgeous card - the new stuff looks good! My favourite winter colour is cherry cobbler!

Jean Fitch from jlfstudio said...

Merry Christmas Lee! Love the sneak peek and what you did with it. Both these goodies are on my wish list. Last year my favorite color was Riding Hood Red and this year it seems to be Cherry Cobbler. Of course Always Artichoke works with either of them! Now if I can remember to call it Artichoke...I keep cracking up my friend Cheryl by calling it Asparagus!

Holiday Hugs and blessings and looking forward to another 411 year!

My favorite winter color would be Elegant Eggplant. It is so rich and regal. I hope I win because I had decided that the next time I saw your bow maker, I was going to order it. Maybe I won't have to now! Love the card. Thanks.

Pam M. said...

I hadn't thought about getting the Build a Blossom set (or the punch, but your card has got me thinking...
I thought I'd be one of a FEW (if any) whose favorite winter color is BLUE. (A light blue..like Marina Mist) When paired with white it just makes me think of a soft, winter snow. It's so peaceful.

Amanda Harbison said...

I think I will NEED that set and punch! Your card is gorgeous.

think your favourite colour all year round is "winter white".

I did a card with the same colour vein from the In Colours and loved it, so am really drawn to this card. Love the colour combination even in the Christmas season.


The stamp and punch, Yes. It is a must have am sure now.

Thank you so much for sharing. Your site is such a great incentive to me and probably all newer persons here. Creativity is (after our pocketbooks)only limited by our imaginations.

All the best to everyone in the new year.

Andrea L - EnchantINK said...

Wow! Look at those beautifully curled petals. Obviously there is still alot of SU! "stuff" ... that we don't have here in AUS! This makes such a stunning card! Love the softness of the colours! My favourite winter colour is silver ... I love it for card making ... to us with all the other colours as an accent. Love my silver bracelet that my daughter gave me for Christmas ... and love silver ornaments on the tree. (We don't actually have silver ornaments ... but I do love them more than any other!) But ... it is a little ironic ... cos our Christmas is actually in the middle of summer!So ... perhaps these don't qualify as they don't represent winter here! Hugs xxaxx

nancy littrell said...

Gorgeous 3-D card. I have the cupcake punch, but not the Blossom punch....yet! Thanks for the inspiration. Love how you rolled the petals. My fav. Christmas color is any shade of red, although Cherry Cobbler was my fav. this year. TFS and offering Candy...with no calories :-)

Oh, how I would love to be the recipient of your beautiful card! It conveys the appreciation of the sender without even a word. Your cards are amazing and inspirational. My favorite winter color is actually a neutral - white. When snow is on the ground everything is highlighted and looks so pretty.

Awesome card. Winter color - that's a tough one as I like the white/blue combo and red/green. I have to say though Cherry Cobbler is soon taking over haha! Karen

What a beautiful card, so simple but impressive. I love this preview of the Blossom Petals Punch...can't wait to order! My favorite winter color is Cherry Cobbler, not sure what yours is but I would guess Regal Rose or the paper Pretty in Pink.

I think my favorite winter color is bashful blue. Thanks for sharing you card. The bow maker is very interesting. I don't think I've seen one of those. I really have a hard time making bows I untie and tie about 100 times.

I have two favorite winter colors--Cherry Cobbler (traditional), Pretty in Pink (girly non-traditional).

I really didn't think there was anything I 'needed' in the upcoming mini--rethinking that after seeing your gorgeous card. I need to just close my eyes and stop looking at all your pretty cards. LOL

My favorite winter color? that's a tough one....I'm going to have to go with Baja Breeze for now, I really that it sounds more summery than wintery but it looks great with "snow" scenes!

Hi Lee,

I absolutly love this card...I wasn't going to get the punch, but now it looks like I'll have too! My favorite winter color has always been some shade of soft blue, but in working with the SU products this year, it has been hands down Cherry Cobbler!! What a beautiful color. Thanks for the opportunity to win this bow maker as I have been curious about it for a while.

Happy Holidays to you and your family,

Oooh Lee--I'd love to win your bowmaker! My favorite winter color is glittering white, just like the sparkle of a fresh snowfall when hit my the morning rays of the sun--nothing can beat it in my book!

julie said...

I love this card...this stamp set and punch will be a 'must-have' for me in the new year!

Donna Thames said...

My favorite color is Baja Breeze with Chocolate Chip. I think yours must be Cherry Cobbler,and Whisper White a close second. I got a throw from Pottery Barn from my parents the same color as Baja Breeze and I splurged and got the matching pillows for my new couch. I love your card, I hope you do this in a class.

Hi Lee, My favorite color for the winter would be red(REAL RED)because it is bright and cheery, but I also like white(WHISPER WHITE) because It makes me think of the snow that we don't get here in the South but I wish for. I hope you have a Happy New Year. my email is veronica1230@comcast.net
