It's About the Gifts

Unless you’re a young child, you know that the holidays are not just about the gifts. (unless you’re really, really hoping for that pony you’ve wanted since you were a kid!). For today’s card though, it’s all about the gifts, since that is today’s word challenge!

GIFTS WORD PROMPT

If you’re playing along with the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge, then you’ll know that each day there’s a new word prompt. Since we’re getting close to Christmas, I chose ‘gifts’ as today’s word.  And if you’re not playing along – why not? It’s super easy, fun and free! Not only that, for every time you share your project to the challenge page on Facebook HERE, you’re automatically entered to WIN a $50 Gift Card to shop at Scrap ‘N Stamp!

I pulled out one of my favourite stamp & dies sets from 2 years ago – I thought it was from last year, yikes! Time flies! It’s called Secret Santa, by My Favorite Things.

It's About the Gifts

Since the prompt is gifts, I decided to really pile them on! It reminds me of when my boys were young, and everything seemed to come in big boxes, so under our tree extended half way through the living room.

CARD DETAILS

On smooth white cardstock, stamp Santa & tree once, and then stamp all of the presents twice, in Nocturne ink. Use your Copic markers (or other favourite brand) for colouring.  Add some highlights with a white gel pel, and then die cut all of the images with your Big Shot.

Using some basic masking, I separated the sentiment onto 2 strips of white cardstock, again in Nocturne ink.  Now, create your red card base, with a layer of green cardstock on top. Add a stitched oval die cut from patterned paper, glued on top.

Next, layer all of the die cut pieces, some glued directly to the card front, and some popped up using foam squares. Add the sentiment across the bottom – perfect admonition for the presents, right?

About the Gifts

I think that Santa is counting on you to keep the secret about what’s in the gifts!

PLAY ALONG!

I do hope that you’ll play along with the challenge, whether you choose today’s prompt, or any other. There’s no limit – you can play along with as many days as you want! At the end of the month, one lucky person is randomly chosen, and gets the $50 Shopping Spree at Scrap ‘N Stamp.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
