More from Holiday Camp!

Here is another creation that all the ladies made at the Holiday Card Camp last month. I have grown to really love this stamp set. The verses that come with it are beautiful yet the tree is so whimsical! Here it is:


The images, except the sentiment, on this card were all from the stamp set Wonderous Gift.
The main panel is stamped on Whisper White. Start with the tree image inked up in Wild Wasabi, stamp that close to the top of the panel. Then, I took the larger star in that same stamp set and stamped it as a tree topper in Summer Sun. There is a small cluster of stars stamp that comes in that set and I thought...wouldn't that look nice as ornaments? They are stamped in Summer Sun also.
To get the little Purely Pomegranate ornaments on the tree...here's a little tip for you.....lol.....since there aren't markers to match the In Colors, which I feel there should be - I'm sure Stampin' Up! will take my feelings into consideration when planning a new release of In Colors - I am addicted to Stampin' Write Markers.....I'm digressing, I know.....Here's your tip: take a dried out blender pen and roll it around in your ink pad and you have a marker of sort. Just be very careful...since the blender pen is dried out, the tip is VERY easy to get pushed inside of the marker. Anyhow....that is where the Purely Pomegranate ornaments came from.
Next stamp "Happy Holidays" from Many Merry Messages in Purely Pomegranate near the bottom of the main panel.
That panel was matted onto Purely Pomegranate and finished off with a simple knot tied out of Double Stitched Purely Pomegranate Ribbon. I love that ribbon! Did I mention that the new catalog ( which I got my Demonstrator copy the other day! ) has some new Striped Grosgrain ribbon? I will have to have it!!!!! Now that I am thinking about it.....there is sooo much stuff that I will have to have...there are some wonderful things coming our way! I digress again...what is the matter with me today?!?!??!? I have so much work to get done....maybe I am putting it off by rambling on and on to you! I'm sorry you have to be a part of my procrastinating!
Anyway...back to the card. After the knot is ribbon is adorning the main panel, adhere that to a card base of Wild Wasabi. That is it...no wait! There is more!!!!!
You can't see it in this picture but there is BLING on this card! All of the stars on this card sparkle! That's right...get out the 2 Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds!
