SQSC03 Comfort, Joy and Bling Christmas

Today’s Comfort & Joy Bling Christmas Card for the SQSC03 Challenge may just be my favorite Christmas card to date!  The NEW Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenges feature lots, and lots of layers, LOL.. and I love layers, don’t you?comfort_and_joy, pewter_embossing, Holiday_mini, catalog, glimmer_paper, new product, online ordering, ribbon, taffeta, brushed gold, sharon_field, Createdbyu_blogspot, sketch_challenge, stampin_queensLOVE the new Silver Glimmer Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog  (page 41) don’t you?  Here I’ve paired it with Brushed Gold Card Stock, embossed Whisper White Card Stock, and new Pewter Stampin’ Emboss Powder (page 31).comfort_and_joy, pewter_embossing, Holiday_mini, catalog, glimmer_paper, new product, online ordering, ribbon, taffeta, brushed gold, sharon_field, Createdbyu_blogspot, sketch_challenge, stampin_queensThe new Pewter Stampin’ Emboss Powder looks more like  sterling silver or brushed nickel than pewter to me! It’s so reflective, and bright… at first I tried pairing it with Brushed Silver Card Stock, but the normally reflective brushed silver card stock paled in comparison to the silver glimmer paper and pewter embossing.comfort_and_joy, pewter_embossing, Holiday_mini, catalog, glimmer_paper, new product, online ordering, ribbon, taffeta, brushed gold, sharon_field, Createdbyu_blogspot, sketch_challenge, stampin_queensThe bird and greeting are new product too, included in the Comfort & Joy Stamp set, also found on page 31 of the holiday mini catalog.comfort_and_joy, pewter_embossing, Holiday_mini, catalog, glimmer_paper, new product, online ordering, ribbon, taffeta, brushed gold, sharon_field, Createdbyu_blogspot, sketch_challenge, stampin_queensThe banner for my sentiment “Peace on Earth” was created using a 1” square punch (also new product from the holiday mini catalog.. page 36).  By turning the punch at an angle, and catching both corners, a consistent notch is easily created.comfort_and_joy, pewter_embossing, Holiday_mini, catalog, glimmer_paper, new product, online ordering, ribbon, taffeta, brushed gold, sharon_field, Createdbyu_blogspot, sketch_challenge, stampin_queensTwo layers on todays’ challenge card were popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.comfort_and_joy, pewter_embossing, Holiday_mini, catalog, glimmer_paper, new product, online ordering, ribbon, taffeta, brushed gold, sharon_field, Createdbyu_blogspot, sketch_challenge, stampin_queensA Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Elegant Lines Textured Embossing Folder were used to emboss one of the Whisper White Card Stock layers too.
