Happy Friday everyone! Hope you’ve had a fabulous week. I’ve decided to get glittery today and play with Sassy Snow.
Hi, guys! It’s Jingle! It’s great to be back here on the Skipping Stones Design blog to share with you a bit before the big changes go into place. I pulled out a couple of super pretty sets to create a Christmas card to share with you today.
The ornament is from the beautiful Christmas Song set and the border is from the Damask Darling set. I embossed them in gold and silver for a super pretty holiday feel! I love how the intricate designs of these stamps make a simple card look so elegant!
I hope you have a super fabulous day!!! Feel free to visit my blog, Just Jingle!
Katie Gehring here today with a question. Have you started on your holiday cards yet? If you said no, you are in good company! If you are still looking for a design that balances simple with bold, hop over to my blog today and see what I cooked up using our newest set Victorian Christmas as well as an oldie, but goodie, Sassy Snow.
Today, I am delighted to introduce you to the newest stamp set in the Skipping Stones family, Victorian Christmas! Victorian Christmas is an elegant set that you can reach for time and again for all of your holiday stamping needs! Cards, tags, decor, this little stamp set packs a punch.
Just wait until you see the amazing cards made by our design team and last month’s guest designers!
JJ Bolton created this stunning card in blue and white with just a touch of shimmer. Placing the tree in the die cut negative and the sentiment banner backed in gold is pure genius!
Miriam’s traditional holiday color scheme of red, gold and green is anything but with the addition of glitter and woodgrain. Love!
Stephanie had a fresh take on the set in shades of green and aqua. I love the gems in blue and white and the glittery snowflake is the perfect accent!
Judith opted for rich golds and purples tempered with a palate of white. I don’t think CAS has ever looked so opulent!
Glenda created this dazzling card in shades of merlot, gold and evergreen. I love how the embossed panel echos the scrolling in the tree. Brilliant!
Wendy was able to hang her ornament from a tree in this CAS card. I love how she added the double score lines. It really enhances the design without taking away from the focal point.
Our new release celebration continues tomorrow with a super fun blog hop featuring Victorian Christmas as well as some of Skipping Stones other festive holiday sets with a sketch that could come in very handy this time of year. Curious? Stop back tomorrow to see more!
Until then friends, have a great Monday!
Hello! Megan here with a sneak peek of a elegant and fun card that I created using the Margarita Birthday stamp set, because who doesn’t love a margarita on their birthday?! Be sure to stop over at my blog to see the rest of this card and some details on it.
Happy Monday friends!
