White Christmas...

Hey friends!!  Yes... I know... Christmas is over, but Merry Monday Christmas challenge goes on all year and this week's challenge is white on white... I couldn't resist!!  I'm also playing along with the Taylored Expressions Share Joy challenge (sketch and CAS). I flipped the sketch as I liked how the image I was going to used looked down at the bottom rather than at the top.  I have a few older TE stamps set that I haven't pulled out in ages.  The set I used is called Poinsettia Bouquet.  I'm a total sucker for anything poinsettia, lol!  I stamped the image using VersaMark watermark ink, applied Liquid Platinum embossing powder and heat set.  Once that was done I trimmed the image out.  It has a matching die, but unfortunately I don't own it!  The main panel was die cut using my AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle background dies and then the triangular piece was also cut using a smaller die from the set.  I love that I was able to create my triangle with a nice finished look!  The banner was die cut using an MFT fishtail flag stax die, the sentiment stamped in VersaMark, Liquid Platinum embossing powder applied and heat set.  Layered everything up on a Simon Says Stamp fog cardstock base and added some Pretty Pink Posh marshmallow sequins.   Going to add this to the current Less is More challenge (neutrals), as well as the new CASology challenge:  simple.  Keeping everything white creates a very simple design and the layout is simple.





Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Simon Says Stamp (fog), Recollections (white); Stamps:  Taylored Expressions; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design and My Favorite Things; Ink:  VersaMark; Embossing powder:  Liquid Platinum; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh
