Mr. Twigster Stamp-a-Stack Card


This is one of the cards that the ladies attending my Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack will make.  I hope they like it.  It's not "traditional" Christmas colors, but I really like it.  I was inspired by a card in the October Stampin' Success (magazine available for free to Stampin' Up! demonstrators).  It was a smaller, square card on page 27 and I used the frame idea with the tree stamp from Mr. Twigster (item #111772) and then figured out which papers I wanted to use and built the card around that.  The papers are from the Frosty Day Designer Series Paper (item #113057) pack and both the DSP and Mr. Twigster can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog (only available through January 18th).  You can buy them both on my SU! website HERE.

Stamps: Mr. Twigster, Snow Swirled (sentiment)
Paper:  Kiwi Kiss Textured CS, Whisper White CS, Frosty Day DSP
Ink:  Black StazOn, Chocolate Chip classic ink, Chocolate Chip craft ink
Accessories:  Stampin' Pastels, Blender Pen, Chipboard Frame from On Board Chipboard "Something Seasonal", stampin' sponges, Tangerine Tango Striped 5/8" grosgrain ribbon
