Noel... Lots of Joy

I can't stop playing with this new Holiday Stamp Set (Lots of Joy)!!   It's in the Annual Catalog, so you can order and play with it already, too.

Meanwhile, the Holiday Catalog (filled with LOTS of great, new holiday product) goes live on September 1.  It will be here before you know it!!

We start our card with a Real Red Card Base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock. 

We stamped our Whisper White card stock with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Crumb Cake ink.  I just love the wood-grain look that this stamp provides - it makes the perfect backdrop for so many cards and projects!!

Hardwood Background Stamp  wood-mount  133032  $20.00
Hardwood Background Stamp  clear-mount  133035  $15.00

Next, we punched both of our tags (the Whisper White tag and the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper tag) with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.

If you haven't checked out the Merry Moments DSP yet, you really need to!!  I love all of the patterns in this paper pack - it makes it really difficult to decide which side of the paper to use.....

Merry Moments Designer Series Paper  138450  $11.00

Ornate Tag Topper Punch  137416  $23.00

We also stamped the Christmas bulb (in Real Red ink) and the "Noel" sentiment (in Garden Green ink) on the tag - both of these stamps can be found in the Lots of Joy Stamp Set.  

Have I mentioned how much I love this stamp set??  We used all but 3 of the stamps in this set in a recent Christmas in August class I held...

Lots of Joy Stamp Set  wood-mount  138810  $27.00
Lots of Joy Stamp Set  clear-mount  139468  $19.00

Finally, we added a White Perfect Accent  (they're kind of like Candy Dots, only white/clear and come in 3 different sizes) to the center of our Christmas bulb (you can even color these with a Sharpie marker to make them really pop!), as well as a Natural Chevron Bow to the top of the tag.  I love how the ribbon coordinates so well with the Hardwood Background Stamp.

White Perfect Accents  138416  $5.00

Natural Chevron Ribbon  132982  $7.00

I hope you enjoyed this card!!  I found it on one of the display boards at Convention (I apologize that I couldn't get the original creator's name) and knew that we'd have to re-create it at a class when I returned home.  This was one of the cards we made earlier this month at the Christmas in August class that I mentioned previously.

I hope you were Inkspired today!!
