OK, some times these blog post titles gets a bit strange.  BUT, well, what else do I call it?? 🙂

This card is using the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set which you will find in the Annual Catalogue.  I looked over this set so many times in the catalogue but on our weekend I got to play with it and now I love it.  I might have even bought my own set now!


The Base card is Dapper Denim.  Hence the Dapper in the title 🙂

First off I Heat embossed in White Embossing Powder on to Whisper White card.  Then sponged Dapper Denim ink over the card.  I sponged it a bit heavier over the snowflakes. (maybe a bit too  heavy, but anyway!). Ink it until you are happy with the colour.  Then you can go over it with a tissue to wipe off the ink from the embossed areas.  I really like the magic of this as you wipe over the images.  It makes the images shine. I added some stars stamped in Dapper Denim over the card.

I wanted to add some copper to this.  I matted the card onto some Copper Foil Sheet. Just a tip:  I cut a rectangle from the centre of the copper mat so I don’t waste it as it is just hidden under the cardstock.  I am sure you can have a use for that.

I cut a “merry” from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits from Copper foil too. The Christmas is from the Holly Jolly Greetings set. I thought it needed something else so added a Copper Mini Pinecone embellishment in the corner tied with some Baker’s Twine.  I think I have been converted to copper too.

Hope you like it.  Have a super wonderful day wherever you are.

I finally got to play with this set the other day.  I have had it since we received it at Onstage.  I CASED this card off a Facebook group I am on.


This is using a new set ‘Sitting Here’.  I coloured the images with blender pen and inkpads and touched it up with the markers.  The card base and oval mat is Crumb Cake. The embossing folder I used on the Dapper Denim card mat is the new one ‘Floral Affection’.  There is 2 in the set.  I love these Embossing Folders.

I think Dapper Denim is fast becoming a popular colour when I speak to people.  What do you think of the colour?

Here is the stamp set if you have not noticed it yet and the Embossing Folders.
