Narrowing Down the Selection….

I think I've finally narrowed down the "Stamp-a-stack" options.  Here are two for today.  I got the idea of the 8 reindeer from splitcoast, but I forget who the artist was.  Sorry!  I love the Holiday Treasures with it.  And the scallop border is not quite punched all the way.  I left a little bit on both ends – just for something different.

The stamp sets are Winter Post and All Holidays.
Paper:  Holiday Treasures DSP, Chocolate Chip & Confetti Cream Card Stock
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Old Olive
Accessories:  Key tag punch, Vanilla grosgrain ribbon (wide), Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop border punch

This is kind of the Sketch challenge from last week on Splitcoast.  I didn't follow it exactly, but I wanted to do an "Out of the Box" card.

Here's what I used:
Winter Post, All Holidays, Lovely as a Tree
Paper:  Sage Shadow, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, Whisper White
Ink:  Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip classic Stampin' pads; Handsome Hunter, Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write markers; Watercolor Wonder crayons (to color the skaters, ice and sky)
Accessories:  Designer Label punch, Chocolate Chip grosgrain, stampin' dimensionals

Here's how you do it.

Cut a rectangle of card stock.  Stamp images.  I kind of decided where I wanted the top cut to be before I stamped. 
Using a ruler, draw a line across the top to make a box.  Cut straight across the line, but around any images that are "out of the box."  (The top of the trees and the skaters on this one.)

That's all there is to it.   If you haven't signed up for the stamp-a-stack, be sure to do so before Wednesday, October 15.  It's $20 for 18 cards. 

I'll post more tomorrow.  I want to show you a sneak peek of this month's club projects!
