Christmas Joy from Southern California 18

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, October 15, 2009 @ 7:28 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! I am writing this to you while I am on a mini vacation in Southern California with my step-kids & hubby. Those of you who have been visiting me here at Cupcake's Creations, know I ALWAYS take a few stampin' supplies with me when I travel :) I made this card combining 3 challenges: I have been lovin' the paper piecing technique challenge this week at the Just Us Girls site, so I gave it another try! I also used Samantha's "Traditional" Christmas Color Combo #6 & Taylor's amazing sketch #86, TESC86. If you are interested in viewing some beautiful creations, be sure to check out what ALL of these sites for inspiration! I hope you had a chance to play along with me & the girls at the Just Us Girls Challenge site, if not hopefully I will see your creations in the new challenge on Saturday, October 17th! I'd love to know what your favorite Christmas color scheme is? Be Sweet!Here is my Christmas Joy card:

I embossed the SU Very Vanilla cs with using the Cuttlebug Victoria EF.

Using a very sharp scissors, I cut out ALL the Poinsettias & the green foliage & pieced it on my card!
Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Snowflake Serenade, Peaceful Poinsettia Paper: SU Old Olive, Very Vanilla, PTI Pure Poppy Ink: SU Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Black Sprinkles: Cuttlebug Victoria EF, Making Memories brads, Spellbinders Long Rectangle nestie, ribbons from stash
