Christmas Greetings for FMS411 and HSS327…!

Hello All!

I have a Christmas card today!

I again, combined 2 Challenges. a sketch challenge and a color challenge!

Here they are!

First the Sketch Challenge from

Freshly Made Sketches #411  (FMS411)

FMS 411


The Color Challenge from

Hand Stamped Sentiments #327  (HSS327)

HSS 327

I do like the Color Combo!


Here is my take on the 2 Challenges!


I let the DSP ‘Star’ on this card! So Cute!


Here is the inside of the Card!


I wanted to use the same 3 colors here too!




Whisper White Thick- 8.5″ x 5.5″ score @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score

Whisper White Regular- greeting’s circle          scrap piece trimmed for greeting, flagged

Shaded Spruce- mat for DSP, 1.75″ x 4.25″       scrap piece for greeting mat, also flagged


Let It Snow Specialty DSP- panel across the front, 1.5″ x 4″

There is glitter on the DSP. These Snow-people have a glitter on them!


Teeny Tiny Wishes- retired, greeting (used a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, and just colored the words, Merry Christmas, huffed on it and stamped!)

Snowflake Sentiments- retired, inside sentiment

Spirited Snowmen- holly & berries, snow flurries, inside


Real Red- greeting and inside sentiment

Memento Tuxedo Black- holly & berries

Coastal Cabana- inside snowflakes


Light Shaded Spruce- holly on card front

Light Real Red- holly berries on card front


Real Red- to color only the ‘Merry Christmas’ on the stamp.

color in the berries inside of the card (so it wouldn’t bleed through to the back)

Shaded Spruce- to color holly on the inside of the card (same as above)


Big Shot- die cutting machine

Stitched Shapes Dies- circle under greeting

Softly Falling Embossing Folder (EF)- impressed impression of ‘snow’ falling on the card front


Shimmering Crystal Effects- used as glue to hold…

Ice Stampin’ Glitter- sprinkled onto the Shimmering Crystal Effects.

The Crystal Effects acts as glue to hold the Ice Stampin’ Glitter!

Here is the Card, once again!


(I made it a little bigger, so you can see the ‘Ice’ rimmed circle!)

When I first saw this DSP, I was not totally in love with it. But after cutting it for storage.

I did get to see all of the DSP, and I got to like it! Weird, I know, but true!


Until the next Post…Blessings and ‘Snow-People’ love to you ALL!
