Blog Hop! Friends with Flair style!!

Happy FWF Friday everyone!!  

I was so excited to sit down yesterday and just create something with Unity.  I totally enjoyed being a Guest Designer last month, but typically we were showcasing certain sets and so I couldn't let the stamps "speak to me."  And yes, my stamps do speak to me!!  LOL!! Some of them are just begging to be used... and other's sit quietly until needed!!  Ha ha!!

So last night the stamp that was speaking to me the most was the Joy stamp from the November Stampin' Store kit  (which can be purchased at the Paper Maniac.)  I knew that I could incorporate that Joy word art into a Christmas card somehow, and God knows I am still need to finish some more Christmas cards!!

So after just a little thought... this Joy to the World Christmas card was born!




I know it might not seem like a traditional Christmas card, but I kind of like that about it!  Besides the Joy stamp from the Unity's Nov SSK, I also used the gorgeous flourish from the same set that I placed behind the world image that comes from none other than the Eco Chic set.  Edited to Add: This card fits yesterday's Ways to Use it Challenge to incorporate a Christmas Carol on your card!  WT248


I used SU's Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the sentiment and the flourish and I highlighted them both with a Sakura Gelly Roller pen.  The world stamp was colored with Copics and then punched with a circle nestie and then matted in red with a scalloped circle nestie


The DP is from K & Co's Swell Noel collection.  The snowflake dies are also K& Co.  And that neat red glittered trim is from Making Memories!

Sorry for those of you who are about done with seeing Christmas cards, but unfortunately until I get mine done, that is almost all I have time to work on!  I am ready to move on to Valentines and spring  stuff here really soon!!

Have a great Friday!
