Holiday  Home2

Today, over at The Paper Players, Nance is challenging us with a super simple Sketch Challenge.  


My inspiration today came from the "Nordic Noel" Designer Series Paper. There's lots of bright, bold patterns using the traditional holiday red and green with a little twist of Soft Suede (a warm brown) and Soft Sky (a beautiful soft, warm blue) along with Calypso Coral (a rich, soft orange). 

It was so easy to stamp the little wreaths on the houses… the stamp is from the "Holiday Home" stamp set which is photopolymer… totally clear and when mounted on the clear block you're able to place the image perfectly.

"Merry Christmas" is from the "Endless Wishes" stamp set… how pretty is that font?

  • Here's a little design tip for you… The button on the card is one of the white buttons from the "Nordic Designer Buttons" collection. The button was too white against my Whisper White banner, so I punched out a 1/2" circle using the striped patterned paper and attached it to the button with a Stampin' Dimensional which was the perfect size to fit into the recessed portion of the button. The patterned circle sits beautifully on the button.

So, grab some patterned paper, add a sentiment and a custom button and create something wonderful!
