SSC143 Warm Winter Wishes

Happy New Year, Y'All!!  If you've been spending an entire week at home with the family and don't know what to do with yourself, try our Sunday Stamps challenge!

So before my Occasions/Sale-a-Bration preorder arrives, I am busy trying out some stamp sets from the Holiday catalog that haven't seen ink yet.  Speaking of the Holiday catalog, remember it, as well as the Year-End Closeouts, ends on January 3.  Some items are on the carryover list, but remember they don't have bundle pricing once items once the initial catalog period they appeared in expires.  So make sure you grab those retiring and bundle-priced items before they are gone!  All the pertinent info can be found HERE.

Mountain Adventure is a fun set, although I had to stamp it a few times to get the layout right.  I used some masking, so it required some forethought (or re-stamping from my lack thereof).

Beyond the masking/stamping, there is some brayering (Pink Pirouette & Sweet Sugarplum) and sponging (Wisteria Wonder) going on here.  I used Global Design Project sketch #46 for my layout.

Here's this week's color challenge.  Isn't this a fun frosty winter photo?  Use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

Stamps: Mountain Adventure, Winter Memories; Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Playful Palette DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper; Ink: Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum, Wisteria Wonder, Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: In Color Enamel Shapes, Silver Metallic Thread, Banner Punch, Mini Stapler, Brayer, Sponges, Dimensionals.
