SIP Challenge 5 – Theme

I am definitely not a Monday fan! I guess that it gets a bad rap because it follows the gloriousness that is the weekend! LOL! My theory on work this week is proving to be correct, bummer! Oh well, onward and upward right?! After dinner last night Taylor and I ran up to Michaels, she needed to pick up a few things and I needed a frame. When I got back to the house I spoke to Danielle and then FaceTimed with Andrea for a bit. After that I sat down to type my post. Sometimes when I do that I listen to music and last night I dug up an oldie but goodie! Alanis Morissette’s Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. It was one of my favorite albums when it came out and I used to listen to it on the train on the way home from work almost everyday. I was happy that I remembered the words!

Now on to today’s post for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

SIP Any Theme 5

Christmas in July! It’s never too early to think about making some Holiday cards! Maybe this will encourage me to actually get started early! The base for the card is Neenah Solar White 100b Card Stock. I cut out a piece of Cherry Cobbler with the Simon Says Stamp Full Card Triangles Die and adhered it to the base with 2-Way Glue. My tag is cut out with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 Die from a piece of Garden Green and Mint Macaroon. I ran the Garden Green piece though the Big Shot again to cut out the tree with the Simon Says Stamp Banded Tree Craft Die. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Be Joyful Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The tags are then adhered together with some SNAIL, I threaded some Lawn Fawn Green Sparkle Lawn Trimmings Twine though the hole that I punched out. A few strips of Foam Tape adhere it to the card. Not too complicated and I love the Mint Macaroon with the Garden Green, oh and the triangle background that echoes the tree shape! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Now head on over to the blog and check out the other Design Team members cards.

  1. … Speaking of music … the tree punch reminds me of “Stairway to Heaven”. I do like the Cherry Red triangle background. Have a great day.

    1. Yes! The tree does sort of look like a staircase! Thank you! Glad that you enjoyed the card! You have a great day too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great card and I have to say I like the picture of the Xmas ornaments in the sand at the beach ! What a nifty way to emphasize Christmas In July.
    Bye ! I`m on my way to Stamps-Ink-Paper to see the other Christmas creations !

    1. Thank you Sonny! I love the ornaments in the sand! Hope that you enjoyed the rest of the DT cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Glad to see you enjoy Canadian music now and then! Cool.
    Love your card and that red background. Another great die. And yes sure see the “staircase”. Great inspiration photo too. Have yourself a great day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh, I love Alanis Louise! She is awesome!
      Thank you! Love all of the Simon Dies! I hope that you enjoyed your day! I did! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Good Morning Justin! Glad to see you survived another Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I must admit that this Christmas card is very, very unique. Combining the triangle background with the rectangular cuts that make up the tree is simply perfect. I never, ever would have thought to do that.
    The best part of this card is that it is simple enough to be able to make multiples of without a huge effort and still end up with a nice little piece of artwork. Great job (as always).

    Sorry your Monday didn’t go so well. Once you retire you will love Mondays because they become the day of relaxation after busy weekends. I never make Monday plans so that I can recoup, especially with the craziness that comes with all the weekend company one expects when living in Maine. You have yourself a Terrific Tuesday. Love and big, no forget that, Huge hugs. LOL XO ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      Yes, I survived, just barely! LOL!
      Thank you! I think that it’s different but yes, still easy to duplicate. I definitely need those type of cards, especially for Christmas!
      Once I retire I will love every day!! LOL! I’m ready to do that now! But, I have a long way to go! My Tuesday was great, I hope that you enjoyed yours too! Yay! Huge hugs and loads of love back to you! XOXOXO ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. OMG…. Love this card, absolutely need this tree die. (I really need to stop following you, you are a bad inspiration, LOL) I’m so not ready to even think about CHristmas

    1. Thank you very much Linda! LOL! NOOOO! You can’t stop! LOL! I would miss you! I’m not ready to be making Christmas cards, trust me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Justin,
    Super cool Christmas card! Love the triangle background die.
    Never too early to start Christmas cards.
