Stitched With Cheer Alternative for TGIFC84

Well hello there December!  Where did you come from?

Anyone else feel that way?

Our older two boys have been asking almost everyday for a week now when it will be December 1st.. You think that I would've seen it coming!

Let the countdown begin to Christmas Day!  We have a very fitting color combo for you at TGIF Challenges this week, but don't let it keep you from thinking outside the box!

I wanted to highlight this fun stitched star from the Stitched with Cheer Kit.  This kit is now on sale for $14(USD) and you get supplies to make 18 cards with envelopes!  What a steal!  These cards a detailed and are so fun to make - definitely worth spending $14 on.  You just need the matching stamp set! :)

Here is the original use of the star on one of the pre-printed card bases:

I decided to take the star and add it to a completely different card.

I made the watercolor background on Shimmery White CS. I first wet the cardstock (you can use a Spritzer or use an Aqua Painter) and then immediately stamped the "smear" image from Perpetual Birthday in Old Olive ink.  I used my Heat Tool to die the cardstock and then added some splatter using my Aqua Painter and the splatter stamp from Timeless Textures in Early Espresso ink.

I added the sentiment and holly leaves from the Stitched with Cheer stamp set.  I also added a few Old Olive Enamel Dots from the Halloween Haunts Enamel Dots pack.  (On sale for $2.20!)

The envelopes that come in the Stitched with Cheer Kit have coordinating envelope liners to match each card.  I absolutely love that extra detail!

I hope that you join us this week at TGIF Challenges!  I know that life is busy around the holidays, but take a moment to stamp - you'll be happy you did!

Be sure to check out the rest of the team's designs on the main challenge page.
