Happy beginning of the week to you all!! I hope that your weekend went well. I’m back from my training/check with United and ready for some more crafty goodness this week! Engine failures, electrical issues, hydraulic/flight control issues….all kinds of “fun” in the simulator for three days is enough to drive me running back to my stamp room. But my check went really well. It is always good to have that done (until the next one in 9 months). Ok…enough about that and on to stamping.
Don’t you LOVE the colors for this week’s Merry Monday Challenge?? I was smitten the second I saw them!
Do you recognize the papers on this card? No?? They are from the Calypso Coral Celebration Add-On Kit. Yes they are! As I was shuffling around looking for the right papers, they were sitting right on my desk. They work so well together of course since they are from the same kit. The stamp is a favorite of mine from the last Holiday Catalog, Merry Little Christmas. I stamped it on Whisper White. I first inked it in Crumb Cake and then used a sponge dauber to apply Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on top (retired). It adds a pretty sparkle that was hard to capture with a camera.
The stamped words were punched out with my 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and backed with a scalloped circle from the Perfect Pennants Die. I added some Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Trim for additional shimmer and texture. That trim is so pretty and perfect at the bottom of panels! Finally, a Vintage Faceted Button with Linen Thread and some random Pearls.
I hope you will play along with the challenge this week. The design team there has provided some amazing inspiration so make sure you take a look!

Beautiful card using these fab colors! I love the elegance of your mostly monochromatic card with the pop of Crumb Cake. I can imagine how beautiful the shimmer paint makes it IRL.
