The blessings of Christmas.....Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello there!
It is Saturday and that means it is time for a new
Sweet Stampin' Challenge! YAY...
For the next week our current challenge is

"Christmas is coming"

We're sponsored by Cuddly Buddly who is giving away a £10 voucher. Furthermore don't forget our monthly sponsor which is The Ribbon Girl.
Be sure to pop by Sweet Stampin's Blog. We've got plenty of inspiration from the Design Team and we hope you will join us in the fun.
You have nothing to loose and only fun to gain!
The only thing you have to remember is that your card MUST have stamping on it.
Here is my DT card to kick start your inspiration..................
I have used an embossing folder for the card base to add texture to the card and also give a sense of snow.
The holly's are stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. The colours used are shown under "Supplies used" at the bottom of the blog post.
The sentiment is stamped with my absolute favorite gold ink. I get perfect stamping every time :o)
The frame around the sentiment is a die-cut in gold paper with a glossy finish. I find it gives the card a little extra class.

Hope you got a tiny little bit inspired :o)

Don't forget to stop by Sweet Stampin's Blog and check out the other DT Ladies cards or perhaps even participate in the Challenge.
Join in the Fun :o)
With this card I am participating in Simon Says Stamp's challenge:
"Keep it clean & simple"

 Supplies used:


  1. den gyldne ramme er prikken over i et! Kan godt lide de forskellige lag og strukturer, dette kort har. Enkelt og smukt.

  2. There is something very Christmassy about a sentiment as the focal point on a card, so this ticks all the right boxes for me! Hugs, Tracey x

  3. This is a gorgeous Christmas card, Pia!! I love the gold and the "frame" you created around your sentiment - perfect!!

  4. So pretty, love the frame, very elegant. Hugz

  5. Endnu et rigtig flot kort. Jeg er blevet meget glad for embsossingfolders, men den du har brugt er ikke i min æske - den skal vist på min ønskeseddel.

  6. WAUW det ser rigtig flot ud - og lækkert med guldrammen. Prikke-embossing folderen er også en af dem jeg bruger rigtig tit. God søndag og HUSK nu at vi skal SES til SAM. =0)

  7. A beautiful card Pia, gorgeous embossing and die cut sentiment with lovely details!!

    Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
