STAMPlorations Inspiration Post #52

Hey everyone!  Yes, it's another inspiration post over at STAMPlorations!  We've got some lovely cards to share with you today. As always we encourage you to join in and CASE one of our cards from today's post or Post #51 or CASE Amy's card from the CASEplorations post.  If you do play along you could win a prize too!  Here's my card...

(All stamps by STAMPlorations)

I stamped my poinsettia (Holiday Sketches: Christmas Flower) in Grey Flannel Memento ink on my kraft card base then covered it with a mask.  Then I stamped my pine boughs (Christmas Bell Medley, Dee's Artsy Impressions line) in Grey Flannel and Dove Gray StazOn ink. I stamped my flourish (from a new set you'll get to see soon!) in white.  I removed the mask and shaded my poinsettia with a white pencil crayon. I added a bit off white to the pine boughs as well.  I took a red gel pen and added a few little berries among the pine boughs. I die cut the word Joy from white cardstock, added some Wink of Stella glitter (which is so hard to photograph and is so sparkly in person) and attached it to my card.  I think this turned out rather well, if I do say so myself.  :-)

I hope you'll all come over at see what wonderful cards the DT made too!  Maybe make a card yourself.  :-)

Have an awesome day and thanks for dropping by!
