Another Christmas Card - Wiper Style

I have to apologize for being away from my blog for so long. My husband's Grandmother passed away a week ago Friday and he had to fly home to Nova Scotia to be with his family, leaving me to fend for myself with the 2 kids and work and not my usual sitter. We survived and he is home with us now, so I seized the opportunity to sneak away to my stampin' space. When I saw the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers this week, I knew I had to try it! I decided to try out some of my new pre-order items from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalogue from SU! that include the new Christmas ornament punch, Christmas Cocoa Specialty designer paper and the Merry & Bright Rub-ons. The designer paper co-ordinates with Real Red and the new Soft Suede colors. I love how they look together! A nice change from the traditional red and green. The rub-ons come in white and silver and are so fun and easy to use. I especially like the ornament shaped rub-ons; simply rub them onto your piece of card stock and then punch it out with the ornament punch - perfect! That is how I made the Merry Little Christmas one on the card front. For the other ornament I simply punched it out of the Real Red card stock and then used the white Signo gel pen to put the dots around the edge and used a snowflake rub on in the center.
So I'm going to leave you with a link to the tutorial for this card from SCS HERE
I am hoping to try and get more stamping done this weekend, so check back later and see what I've some up with. As always, feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Until then...
Happy Stampin'
