Candy Cane Lane DSP by Stampin’ Up!

Candy Cane Lane DSP by Stampin’ Up! #CCMC433


Gosh doesn’t Thursday come around fast? It’s time for another Create with Connie & Mary challenge. This week it’s a sketch challenge (phew)! I decided on doing something a little different – well different for me that is! I have used Candy Cane Lane DSP by Stampin’ Up! as my focal point instead of stamping and die-cutting or punching out an image.

I loved this sketch and once I’d decided on the way I wanted to go with it, my card came together really easily!

Candy Cane Lane DSP by Stampin' Up! Tracy May #CCMC433

I used Candy Cane Lane DSP by Stampin’ Up! for the banner behind the Whisper White rectangle and the strip of stripy paper along the bottom. And I even used it for the main image. Isn’t that ginger bread house the cutest? I simply snipped it out of the DSP and attached it to the front with a couple of foam dimensionals.

I used Gorgeous Grunge to stamp the Real Red and Crumb Cake splatters in the background. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and is stamped in Early Espresso.

I don’t really use DSP much on my cards, even though I love it! Usually I don’t want to cut up the pretty patterns! But I need to get over that lol!

Well I hope you like my design for this week’s sketch challenge. Please do pop over to Create with Connie & Mary to see what the rest of the team has come up with! You won’t be disappointed as they are all super talented ladies!

  2. Very festive card…the DSP gingerbread houses just are so easy to cut out! I loved this sketch, too! Great job with the CCMC sketch this week!

  3. In the words of Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins, “Practically perfect in every way.” Love your card this week Tracy!

  4. Love it! Nice job combining the different patterns. The gingerbread house is so cute and I love the little strip of glimmer paper.

  5. Gorgeous – I could buy this paper just to cut out those little houses Tracy, they are so cute!!! Love the sprinkles and strip of glimmer to border your striped paper – super Christmassy!

  6. The dual colored splattered background is such a nice way to tie the colors together! Your card this week is a great showcase of this fun dsp!!!

  7. I love that the splatters look like spilled frosting from the gingerbread house! What a fun card!
