Just a Note to Brighten Your Day... Merry & Bright

 
 
Sometimes I like to take a themed stamp set and create something so different from what a lot of people may see as possibilities for that set.
 
Merry & Bright is one of those sets.
 
 
Christmas themed, yes, but it has some great bones for creating endless non-Christmas themed cards, too.
 
On my card, I stamped the circle shape with Sorbet pigment ink onto Champagne cardstock, then sprinkled Clear Detail embossing powder over top and heat set the ink and powder.
 
The rest of the card is pretty straight forward.  ;)
 
 
Happy creating!  :)
 
 
Supplies used all CTMH (unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Sorbet, Whisper, Colonial White CS
Stamps:  Merry & Bright, Card Chatter - Sympathy
Inks:  Sorbet, Slate, Whisper
Embellishments:  Mocha Opaques, Flutter Paper butterfly, Silver trim, Stardust Glitz Glitter gel
Other:  Make It From Your Heart, 3D foam tape, Sponge, Seeing Spots Cuttlebug embossing folder (Provo Craft)

This is so lovely. Hey, I gave you kudos for a wreath card that I re-created and posted to my own blog, just this week. :) Have a happy weekend.

Great idea!! This is a beautiful card - I would have looked everywhere for the stamps if you hadn't explained! Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh Vicki, this is so pretty. I too like to see what I can create off theme of the stamp and you've hit a home run with this one. I may lift it for my upcoming class with Merry and Bright!

I'm working with this set RIGHT NOW. :) But a little more traditional. I love this card though - I love sorbet.

I would have never guessed that was from a Christmas stamp! It's so pretty and you are so talented at creating background papers!

I just discovered your blog and am enjoying it. Actually, I was searching for Mimi albums and found yours of April 2012. Love the papers you used and just the whole album!
