Try Stampin' On Tuesday

Haha...I did try stamping on Tuesday - for the Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge - and this card is the result! Problem is I didn't get around to posting it until Wednesday! I'm in Thanksgiving prep mode with one pie baked and the second in the oven. Cranberry salad is ready in the frig as is the cheese ball. We'll be heading to be with my family in Ohio and I can't wait! Hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving and remember that gratefulness and joy is a choice we make daily. Circumstances aren't always joyful but there is still a lot to be thankful for. Sorry...I digress - lol!

Seems like these colors (Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron) keep repeating themselves in my Christmas cards this year! I love creating with snowflakes (dies by WPlus9) and feel the cool colors work well for this theme. The background was splattered and also stamped using the grunge stamp from the Christmas Countdown set by Stampin' Up.  Not only did I think this would be a good set for holiday tags, but I love the variety of background options it gives! Speaking of SU...that corduroy button was purchased from them MANY years ago. I added fine glitter to the snowflakes after I had the card assembled. I found out that's less messy than adding glitter before adhering them.

Time to hit the shower...thanks for stopping by!     ~Wanda

Great use of our sketch and extra challenge of non-traditional colors on your Christmas card, Wanda!!! I have some embellishments I bought 10 years ago from SU, and every once in a while find just the perfect use for then... just like you did! Thank you for sharing your holiday creativity with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna

I love your cards, Wanda, and this one is no exception! Happy that you did digress because we all need to remember those wise thoughts about thankfulness. Great fun colors, and I LOVED those corduroy buttons! Don't think I have any of those left, but I do have lots of buttons. Neglecting them lately. This card is so pretty!
