Joy To All

Happy November 1st, everyone!  Gosh, how time sure flies.  It is 7 weeks until we go visiting my family and my husbands for Christmas and New Years.  Crazy!  And only 8 weeks, roughly, until Christmas itself!  Yikes!  :-)

Anyway, I have a card to share today that I made for the current challenge going on over at the Hero Arts Club Blog.  This falls into the category of "A Few Of My Favourite Things".  There are a couple of favourite techniques here.  One would be the embossing and the other is just simple straight forward stamping.

I really love this silhouette skyline stamp (H5470 International Skyline) by Hero Arts.  I also love taking a none holiday stamp and creating a holiday card with it.  It's a pretty simple card.  First I stamped the skyline in black, stamped the sentiment (HA CL460 from Joy To All set) in celadon (Color Box) then dry embossed the whole panel using the snowflake folder (Darice).  I added some bling and attached the panel to the aqua card base with foam dots.  I love the aqua colour here.  :-)

I'm also going to link this up to CAS-ual Fridays "embossing" challenge and Christmas Cards All Year Round's "winter wonderland"

Hope you all had a great Halloween yesterday.  Thanks for visiting!  :-)


  1. Great card, Kim! I have that stamp, too, it's still unused... It was fun to see how you can use a non holiday card for the holidays. Need to do this more often! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Love the skyline silhouette - very attractive card. Thanks for sharing this for CCAYR 'winter wonderland' challenge - hope to see you again soon, Hazel, CCAYR design team - you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for November - I'd love to see it there too. x

  3. Thanks for sharing your lovely festive card at Christmas at Christmas Cards All Year Round and good luck with the Challenge. Judy DT

  4. I just had to let you know how much I like this card! That is a great stamp, one I have never seen but so perfect for a winter theme with all those great embossed snowflakes. Loved your card!

  5. Oh the embossed snowflakes are perfect!! Thanks for playing along with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!! :)
