Hello!  Welcome to my creative blog, One Crafty Sister.  Today I am taking part in the Global Design Project challenge GDP096.  The challenge this week was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) the talented Tanja Kolar:

You could choose to use the same stamp set, the colors, or the layout, whatever inspired you from this beautiful card of Tanja’s.  I loved the layout and it immediately made me think of a new stamp set that I needed to play with!

The Carols of Christmas bundle, which will be in our Holiday catalog coming September 1st, is going to be released one month early, making it available on August 1st!!  It is wonderful for stunning simple or elaborate Christmas cards.  My favorite part is that it has nice, large sentiments for the front of your card.

The large sentiment, Deck the Halls, was stamped in Tranquil Tide.  I thought it had just enough green in it to make for a fun and modern color combo, paired with Cherry Cobbler.  The sentiment was cut out on the Big Shot with the largest of the stitched square dies and layered with a Cherry Cobbler scalloped square.

How did I get that little banner on top?  I stamped the sentiment again on a scrap, with Cherry Cobbler.  Then I trimmed away the Deck and the Halls.  I was left with a little strip.  I then used the Classic Label punch to create the flagged ends!

Everything was popped up on dimensionals, including those adorable little ornaments hanging down from the sentiment.  Best part about these ornaments?  They are just one stamp and one die cut, to stamp and cut all three at the same time!  Super easy and hassle free!  They were finished off with tiny pears.

So what do you think?  Do you just love that big bold sentiment?  You can get that stamp set for FREE through the end of the month by purchasing the Starter Kit!  Not just that but $72 of bonus product in addition to selecting $125 for just $99 plus tax (no shipping).  Your Starter Kit gets you a minimum 20% discount on anything and everything through the end of the year!
