Outlines Challenge 32 - Holiday Thank You

Our Outlines Rubber Stamps Monday challenge theme this week is to.....  Make a Holiday Thank You Card.To enter the challenge you must use only stamps from Outlines; So here is my card for this challenge; it is a 6"x 6" square card. I started out using Crumb Cake by Stampin'Up for the base and added Donna Salazar's Weathered Winter collection for the next 2 layers. I spritz these papers using her Smooch Spritz line by Clearsnap using Carmel Latte, River Moss and Pralines & Cream. I then used the her Distrezz-it-all by Zutter to distress the edges a little. I cut out a doily using Cheery Lynn designs die called 'French Pastry' using My Mind's Eye 'Lost & Found Christmas' paper and I added some distress stain by Tim Holtz's; Bundled Sage and Walnut Stain to the edges. Over top I layered half a doily from the stickers collection from My Mind's Eye. On top, I added some Jewel basic pearls large by Stampin'Up. I cut out a tag using My Mind's Eye 'Lost & Found Christmas' paper and Tim Holtz's 'Tags & Bookplates' I distress these with the following distress stains Bundled Sage, Old Paper, Walnut Stain and Pumice Stone. I added some vintage lace and gold ribbon and some chipboard stickers from My Mind's Eye to the tag. I cut out a Victorian Romance flourish by Cheery Lynn Designs using My Mind's Eye paper for the right corner. I added some Walnut stain to the flourish. Now the only stamps I have so far from Outline Rubber stamps is the H644 Poinsettia Topper small and J643  Poinsettia Topper large. I used both 1 large and 2 small Poinsettia's onto Pergamano Vellum using platinum pigment ink and gold tinsel embossing powder by Ranger. I colored these Poinsettias using Stampin'Up Champagne Mist Shimmer paint.I add 2 brads for the centers from My Mind's Eye and basic pearls around the center. I popped these poinsettias using foam dots. I cut out another 2 tags from the die called 'Two Tags' by Stampin'Up again using My Mind's Eye paper.I added some brown paper for the second layer and then used I sticker for the top. I also added 2 layers of foam tape so that the smaller tag will fit inside the larger tag. On the smaller tag I cut "Thanks" out using my Cricut machine and cartridge 'Heritage' @ 1 1/4" using My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas papers. I added Siren Smooch ink to the letters by Clearsnap.

This month the challenge is The Beauty Of Winter.  I know not everyone celebrates Christmas.  So it is open to a holiday or winter themed creation. So here is my card for this challenge, it is another 5"x 7" card. I used Baja Breeze as the base and used Bo Bunny Snowy Serenade for the the second and third layers.I added some Delphinium grosgrain ribbon by Stampin'Up before applying to the base card.I used the winter scene from the set called 'Christmas Postcard' by Flourishes using black crafter's ink and gold EP. Then I colored the image using my new favorites from Lindy's Stamp Gang called Magicals. I then added some bling in the way of glitter using a 2-way glue pen and some warm highlights Glitter Ritz by In The Making Enterprises. I cut out an oval using Heartfelt Creations Oval die by Spellbinders using purple metallic paper then added some Blue Liberty Glitter by In The Making Enterprises using a 2 way glue pen. I cut out an elegant scrollwork by Memory Box Dies using purple metallic paper and adding some purple pearls by the dollar store. I added a Bo Bunny flower and a brad for the center for the right corner. I stamped sentiment from the set called 'Sentimental Christmas' by Flourishes using black crafter's ink and gold EP and shimmery white paper.
