Try Stampin' on Tuesday!

Merry Christmas everyone; may your Christmas be filled with much
love, laughter, joy and wonderful moments as we celebrate Jesus' Birthday!

Below is the sketch for this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday! challenge.  I know it's Christmas and a very busy time of the year, but we hope that you'll find time to play along with us this week!  You can post your work of art HERE!

And below is the card that I made using one of the new SAB sets, Feeling Sentimental.  I thought it would pair nicely with the retired DSP, Mocha Morning Specialty that I recently purchased from the SU! clearance rack.  I embossed the Ferris wheel using Ivory EP, and then sponged some Soft Suede and Early Espresso around the image.  Next I lightly dragged an Early Espresso ink around the edges of both the saying and Ferris wheel image.  For the background piece, I used the new Honeycomb EF from the upcoming Spring catalog - isn't the texture really cool!?!  Here's a list of the rest of the items I used:

Stamps: Feeling Sentimental SAB
Inks: Early Espresso, Soft Suede
Papers: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Mocha Morning Specialty DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Honeycomb EF, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Paper Doily Sizzlits L Die, Neutral Button, Early Espresso Baker's Twine, Brad, Sponges, Dimensionals

Even though this has the doily in the background it would certainly serve as a masculine card as well with the colouring. Great job. Hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright.

I love how you embossed the ferris wheel!! The treatment behind it looks neat too. Great job with the neutral papers too. A very nice looking card Eileen!!
