Happy Holiday - SCS CC299 and SC310

First I'd like to say I do NOT like this card. I don't like the way it turned out and I can't decide if it's because I struggled with the sketch; the colors or if it's the glitter I added. I think it's the glitter. The color combination doesn't invite glitter.

The only reason this is getting a post and not tossed in the trash is because my BBF just went gaga all over it. She is standing over me now making sure I put it out here. Of course this is the same woman that thinks Steven Segal is an Oscar calibre actor, so clearly her sense of what is good and what is trash is warped.

Also, I have to mention I might not like this card because of the Dasher stamp. I've had a love hate relationship with this stamp since I bought it. I could never get the body to stamp out completely onto the cardstock, and if I did then I'd get extra ink from the poor trimming of the rubber. I finally ripped the stamp off the block and backing, trimmed all the excess rubber and have had more success with it. :)

Stamp: SU! Dasher; Sentiment Hero Arts
CS: Old Olive, River Rock, Real Red
Ink: Old Olive, Real Red
Other: SU Buttons, Glitter, Twine

  1. Ooooh, I love love love this card! And I don't care for Steven Segal :)
    I think it must be that you have had trouble with the stamp in the past because the colours are gorgeous and the design is wonderful!
