Getting Krafty with Nordic Noel x2

Hey there bloggers. I'm back to share another krafty kreation using the Nordic Noel set. And here she is:
This time we're doing a little holiday inspired thank you card. I kept my colour scheme going, using a kraft card base and adding a candy cane striped panel with some cherry scallops courtesy of the medium scallop border die. I die cut a few circles from some kraft, vanilla, and cherry cardstocks, white embossed the Nordic Noel birdie on the kraft, and adhered all the circles together, keeping them a little off center. The "thank you" is from the Essential Sentiments stamp set.

I hope you'll find some time to enter before the a|s challenge ends on Saturday, November 2, 2013.

You can find my other Nordic Noel cards here and here.

Hugs and Kisses!

Getting Krafty with Nordic Noel

Today I'm sharing my newest creation for the a|s challenge blog. I thought I'd try to use every single stamp in the Nordic Noel stamp set, so for the next few days I'll be posting the cards I made from this personal challenge.

Here's my second card from the set. (The first card can be found on this blog post.)
As you can see, I continued the trend of kraft with the candy cane stripe cardstock, and stamped a background using all the smaller images from the Nordic Noel set with french roast ink. The sentiment is die cut from vanilla cardstock using a vintage labels 1 die and stamped with the matching stamp set, as well as the contemporary greetings set.

I've been feeling a little inspired by the Use Your Stamps Challenge on Susan Raihala's blog, so I may just pick out another set when I'm done with Nordic Noel. Check it out. You may find it interest you too.

Stay tuned for my next Nordic Noel card. Coming soon to a blog near you... or maybe just this one. LOL

I hope you'll find some time to enter before the challenge ends on Saturday, November 2, 2013.

Hugs and Kisses!
