Jingling Belle Bingo

Hello folks.  Jingle Belles is playing Bingo this week.


Here's how to play.


I scored across the bottom with dry embossing, tree and ribbon.

Retrosketch #26 really helped me out with this.  Here's the fantastic sketch by Danielle Daws


Shopping our Stash this week has us Using our Favorite Thing.  My Big Shot is probably my favorite thing with embossing folders and dies.  I hadn't used the Top Note Die in ages or that color of seam binding ever.  So my stash got some attention.

I wish the picture showed the glitter better.  I used Dazzling Details and IRL it sparkles real pretty. 

Those little birds are from the Itty Bitty Bits set.  I stamped with Real Red and fussy cut them out. (They kept trying to fly away. Wow are they hard to hang on to!)

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Evergreen, Itty Bitty Bits
Ink:  Always Artichoke, Real Red
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Other:  Big Shot, Argyle EF, Top Note Die, Always Artichoke Seam Binding, Dazzling Details

There's still time to play if you get a chance.

We've been watching the coverage of Isaac in the Gulf States, in between PBS Kids and Sprout.  Our prayers go out to the people there.  That's a lot of water!  Stay safe!

Thanks so much for the visit.  I love visitors!

Enjoy!

Lovely card. I am sure that tree with the glitter looks absolutely beautiful in real life as it looks beautiful in the picture.

Another beautiful Bonnie embossing classic! That seam binding is a lovely addition.

Great sketch, and I LOVE your take on it! The AA seam binding is really gorgeous. My Top Note die hasn't seen love lately either.

Goodness! You CUT THOSE BIRDS OUT??? I thought they were stamped on there so you did an AMAZING job on them!! =D Gorgeous card too--love the argyle embossing!

The Bingo challenges sound like fun - I must look into them. I really like the Evergreen stamp - I might have to buy it!! I love the way you used it on the half die cut with the ribbon anchoring it to the embossed layer.

My kind of card..love the tree with the pretty red birds. I recently got out my Top Note Die and made a Christmas card...one which won't be uploaded for a couple weeks, I think. Yes, I work ahead. LOL

Yes, it's another disaster on the Gulf. They really need prayers, for sure.
