Holiday Hello ~ Stamp Something Challenge

Here is my card for this week's Stamp Something challenge. The challenge is to make a card using red, green and gold. I wanted to use one of my new Whimsy stamps but switch it up a little to make it more festive. I decided to use Froggie. I cut him away from the lily pad and now he is perched on top of a Santa Hat. As I'm typing this I realise that I have a little Mistletoe stamp from Magnolia that would have been perfect to hang over his head! Oh well, inspiration came a little late this time. I think I will add if before I send this card out! Denise has three new releases that are just as cute as the first ones. This time there is an Owl, Moose and a Skunk. Check them out at Whimsy Stamps.

The card sketch I used is this week's Ismaki Challenge. I think it is a brilliant sketch because you can use up all your little bits and pieces of DP. I love all the papers that I use and I never want to throw any out but it does accumulate! This is the solution. I used my Creative Memories square punch and do you see that shiny gold paper? It is actually the inside of an envelope from one of the Christmas cards I received! Ssshhh don't tell!

  • Stamps: Whimsy - Froggie, SweetNSassy - Santa Hat, SU! Circle Sentiment
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Making Memories DP, SU! Red Riding Hood Cardstock
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Prima Flowers, Stickles, Amuse Gemstones

I'll be back tomorrow with my card for Sketch Saturday. It is another "Scene" card and I don't think I am going to be able to part with this one! I think I'm keeping it!

This is super adorable Jeanette! I love the colors, the papers, and how the froggie is sitting on that santa hat. Too cute!

Hope your new stamps have arrived. We're still without power here in NH, luckily I have family in the area with power. Hope to be back to blog hopping soon. :)
