SIP Challenge 74 – CAS Christmas!

Another lovely day! I’m starting to cherish them as I know they won’t be around for much longer! The Stamp, Ink, Paper store was great! Angie was there today, she has some vacation time to use before the end of the year. We all worked on projects and had quite the productive day! I got my Concord & 9th and it’s all checked in! I did play a little with some of it, love new goodies! After work I went over to my Brother’s and met my Parents there for dinner. Daniel and I played with his new birthday presents, he showed me how they all worked. I got home around 8:00 and did some stuff around the house and watched a little HGTV. I have so much to get done this week, there really aren’t enough hours in the day! πŸ˜€

Tuesday… it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge and we have a fun this week…


Clean and Simple Christmas! I used a Hero Set that I have had for a while! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints Background Stamp in Hero Arts Soft Vanilla onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and adhered it to the card. A strip of Champagne Curious Metallic goes down the left side. My images are from the Hero Arts Origami Holiday Stamp & Die Combo Set. They are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto more Solar White 80lb and then I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply some Hero Arts Soft Brown, Red Royal and Charcoal Ink over the images. They are ten cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Christmas Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black in the lower right corner. I decided not to add anything else to keep it very clean! I hope that you like my Design Team Card fro this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Clean and Simple Christmas challenge!

  1. WOW Justin – that origami set is definitely unique. I’m not quite sure what to say about this card……..I’m going to have to study it for a while. LOL I do admit though, that your artistic eye was able to use these stamps beautifully against the snowflake background.

    Busy day today. I need to figure out what else I have to purchase in order to finish my Christmas shopping. Then I need to wrap and prepare to ship a lot of it. I like to get it all shipped by the first week of December and my family is really, really good about not opening until Christmas (they are all afraid of retribution!) LOL. You jave yourself a Terrific Tuesday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Grace! I actually really like it! I have had it forever and don’t know why I haven’t used it! I think after a little time with it, it will grow on you mike my collage card did me the other day! LOL!
      Ha ha! That’s great that they do that for you, I guess you strike some fear into them! Ha! I hope that you get all of your stuff done and that you have a great day! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚
