Happy Thanksgiving! It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I know we’re going to see a lot of wonderful creations on the Hop today, so I hope you’ll join in!
I created my card from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set and the fun Santa Express 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper.
We have a sketch challenge for today’s hop…
If you’re watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade today, you know that at the end of the parade the big guy in red…Santa Clause…makes his appearance to kick off the holiday season! My card today is a hat tip to Santa!
Following the sketch challenge my card today is simple in design and quick to put together. I started off with a card base in Granny Apple Green and used the small star from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set to stamp down the sides of the card base front using Granny Apple Green ink. After stamping the stars I used wink of stella to give them a little sparkle!
A Poppy Parade print with the words “Fa-La-La” from the Santa Express Designer Series Paper pack was adhered down the center of the card front.
I cut a sentiment label to approximately 3-1/2″ x 1-1/8″ from Basic White cardstock and used my Stamparatus to stamp the outline of the word “Believe” in Granny Apple Green ink. I then used the filler stamp, also in Granny Apple Green ink, to fill in the word.
A sentiment label mat was cut in Granny Apple Green and measures the same width as the DSP panel and sentiment label, but is cut a little wider. I stamped the same small star from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink across the top and bottom of this sentiment label mat and brushed the stars with Wink of Stella before adhering the sentiment label to it’s mat. The sentiment label was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and was placed on the lower third of the card front, lining up the edges of the sentiment label with the DSP panel previously adhered.
On a small scrap of white cardstock, I stamped the Santa hat from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then stamped the red fill for the hat in Poppy Parade ink. The Santa hat was fussy cut and adhered to the top left of the sentiment label using a combination of liquid glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional. The white areas of the hat were dusted with Wink of Stella. The hat was set at a jaunty angle of course!
I used Metallic Mesh Ribbon to tie a bow and adhered the bow towards the top center of the card front. Multiple silver Festive Pearls were added across the top and bottom of the sentiment label.
For the inside panel I stamped the words “in the magic” from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink, then used the “Merry Christmas” stamp from the Santa’s Delivery Stamp Set to stamp below the first sentiment in Poppy Parade ink. Several of the small stars from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set were stamped around these sentiments using Granny Apple Green ink.
The same small star was stamped on the envelope front multiple times in Granny Apple Green ink and a piece of coordinating Santa Express Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap. I trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope.
I hope you enjoyed my card for today and I hope you believe in the magic of the season, too!
