Stampin’ Up! Merry Little Labels for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


I used the Merry Little Labels stamp set to create the card I am sharing for our sketch challenge this week.


Stampin' Up! Merry Little Labels-CardiologybyJari

If you are looking for a quick and easy Christmas card, look no further than the Merry Little Labels stamp set!  I also purchased this set as a bundle with the Everyday Label Punch and saved 10%.  The punch also works with the Labels to Love stamp set, and you’ll see a little farther down, I enlisted that set in this card, too!

I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink, then wiped off the holly leaves with a baby wipe and re-inked them with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker.  Stampin' Up! Merry Little Labels-CardiologybyJari

I used the die from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlets as a divider between the two panels of Quilted Chrismas DSP.  The Foil Snowflake was adhered with liquid glue to the card front, then a length of the Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon was added with some glue dots.  Once the ribbon was adhered, I added the sentiment circles with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside sentiment is one from the Labels to Love stamp set and I used the ink to rubber method to stamp it with my Real Red and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  The two Christmas trees are die cut in Garden Green using the Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies.  If you look closely you will see that I used my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to make them sparkle a little.  Enjoy!

Card stock cuts and project supplies will be found at the end of my post.

Time for more of the hop.  Please advance to see what Kristi has designed for us today
