Welcome to a CASE The Designer Challenge with Global Design Project! I know that my card for this weeks challenge looks very similar to the previous week’s, but I loved the rustic feel of last week’s card so much, I had to continue with my theme. #GDP116.
This week we are casing the card shown above, created by the talented Janneke De Jong. Her card was beautiful and simplistic. The tree makes a statement and the colors portray a soft winter feel. I started my card with just the tree, but then started adding more elements and straying further away from her design. BUT, CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) means to make it your own, and I did just that!
I used the Brushstrokes Background stamp to create my own Buffalo Plaid Paper. I stamped Basic Black onto Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, stamping it both horizontal and diagonal to get the plaid effect.
I stamped the images with Tuxedo Black Momento Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock, then colored it in with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. The sentiments were fussy cut with my Paper Snips (My Free Hoot Loot for December). I adhered all images to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Linen Thread adds the perfect ‘rustic’ touch to any creation! I use LOTS of Linen Thread! 🙂

It’s Monday and I have to say I am so happy it’s here! Thanksgiving was packed full of family fun and I am exhausted and ready for a fresh start, although this week may be as busy as the last :). Having a theme to follow helped me quickly create a card for today’s post.
I love creating Christmas Themed Paper Crafts! The color combinations are one of my favorite and the images always make me smile!
I decided to pull out one of my favorite Christmas Sets from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. Santa’s Sleigh Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Coordinating Santa’s Sleigh Framelits Dies. The card I had shared previously: Santa’s Sleigh Christmas Card is at the top of my list for favorite Christmas Cards. So I wanted to try this same set only in a more rustic theme. So I pulled out my Crumb Cake Cardstock and the Wood Textures DSP Stack and went to work.
I stamped the images in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers.
Tip: Be sure to crop the images with your Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and Coordinating Framelits Dies prior to coloring. This way if the first crop gets mucked up, you haven’t ruined an imaged you spent a lot of time coloring. I have learned the hard way :).
The card dimensions are 8 inches wide x 4 inches tall. I love the portrait orientation for cards that have a lot of images…especially ones that work well in a line.
I cut the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 1/4 inch smaller than the Card Base (Crumb Cake). I took two matching pieces of the Wood Textures DSP, cut them both down to a 3 5/8 wide, making sure to get the same print for each piece. I then cut one piece down to 2 inches wide so that it would span the 7 3/8 inches needed. I used the cropped tree to cover my seam.
I colored each image with the following Stampin’ Blends:
- Star – Dark Daffodil Delight
- Tree – Light and Dark Old Olive, Bronze
- Sleigh – Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Bronze, Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler
- Reindeer – Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Bronze
- Presents – Dark Old Olive, Dark Cherry Cobbler
I stamped the Oh Joy Sentiment (from the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set) in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock then snipped it out with my Paper Snips. The Merry Christmas Wishes Sentiment (from Santa’s Sleigh) was also fussy cut with my Paper Snips.
I alternated Mini Glue Dots and Mini / Regular Stampin’ Dimensionals as my adheisve to give my card lots of dimension.

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – November 2017
Theme: Holiday Tags
When I was presented with the theme of Holiday Tags, I knew exactly what to use. Stampin’ Up! has done a wonderful job in the 2017 Holiday Catalog to offer suites of coordinating products that make project creation quick and easy. I was happy to finally use the Merry Little Christmas Suite to create a selection of coordinating Christmas Tags.
This post is jam-packed with photos, so I will apologize up-front for the slight overload, but I wanted to show close-ups of each tag to share the variety or difference in each one.
The Merry Patterns DSP has phenomenal designs on both sides and I love them all! The Basic Black, Old Olive, and Whisper White are such a great color combination!
The Black Rhinestone Basic Jewels pair perfectly with the Merry Little Labels and Labels to Love Stamp Sets and Coordinating Punch.
I just love the Mini Ornaments. I have used them on several Christmas Themed creations and still plan on using them for more things to come!
There are so many coordinating items available in the Merry Little Christmas Mega Suite. With the neutrals colors, they work well with almost anything, the possibilities are endless!
The 7/8″ Black and White Striped Ribbon is wired and easy to manipulate for any purpose. I love what it adds to my Holiday Tags, with very little effort.
I am MAD FOR PLAID! I have a closet full of Buffalo Plaid so when I saw the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper had both a Black & White and Old Olive & Black Plaid Option, I just had to have it!
Pairing the Year of Cheer Embellishments with the Mini Ornaments was a perfect fit. You just string the Baker’s Twine (I used Basic Black) through the eyelets and secure them in place with a bow.
The Green Sprigs are such a fun addition to any 3-D or Paper Craft Creation. I just added a Mini Glue Dot to the stem and stuck it to the Striped Ribbon.
The Glitter Enamel Dots give an added touch to the label, especially when all you need is a little touch of color.
The Basic Rhinestone Jewels add a little shimmer and pair well with the Mini Ornaments and Year of Cheer Embellishments.
The Label Stamp(Outline) from the Labels to Love Stamp set allows you to easily add an additional color to your label. I decided to stay with the theme and add Old Olive.
Make sure to hop along with the rest of the hoppers to grab some more Holiday Tag Inspiration.
I also used the Merry Little Christmas DSP for a Wine Tag. You can see the entire post by clicking on the photo below.
