The Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday challenge is to use a tree or trees on one's card or project. I made a quick and easy design with some cool pattern paper, dies, stamps and inks.
I just love that pattern paper design I got from the Gina K. Designs Sparkling Christmas paper pack. And, I used some shimmery duplex green and white card stock I got from Crafter's Companion for the card base. I thought it went fairly well with the colors on the pattern paper.
The sentiment was stamped on Gina K. Designs White card stock with Gina K. Designs Red Velvet ink. I then die cut that out with the Nesting Doll Oval #1 and that was layered onto a Cheery Lynn Designs XM-7 Classic oval cut from Gina K. Designs Kraft card stock. But before I added the doily oval I took some Red Velvet ink and sponged around it and then also used my Wink of Stella to make it appear a bit shimmery. I also added some enamel yellow dots which are from Stampin' Up! before I popped it up with some Zots.
Inside the card I added some pattern paper along the bottom edge and also stamped a sentiment from a Gina K. Designs stamp set.
The Gina K. Designs stamp sets used are: Holly Jolly and the Noel stamp set. Both have lovely sentiments on them which I thought would work quite well together.
Well, that is my card making for today. I managed to get a bit of baking done again this weekend so I will share a photo of what I made as well as the recipe. It is a family favorite that my Mom always made for my hubby as she knew he loved it. But truth be told, everyone in the family loved it and it is still a tradition we bake often and especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. And I might add that it is very economical and easy to bake. Perhaps the hardest thing to do is washing out the fancy pans I bake them in. **wink**
Tomorrow is Arlin's second cataract surgery so we will be rising extra early again tomorrow as it also involves another out of town trip. I will be so glad when that is done and wish me luck on getting up at 3-4 o'clock in the morning. I am not a normal early riser anymore since retirement so this is a struggle for me. Say a prayer that I wake up on time.
You have a wonderful rest of the day and thanks for visiting.
