Sunny Season for TTS38!

Oh how I would love to be on a Beach right now.. We are supposed to get a few more inches of snow tomorrow and I'm not really looking forward to it. I'm really ready for this Winter to be over, how about you? 

It's Thursday and that means time for a new challenge at 'Tis the Season where it's Christmas all year long! This week we have an Inspiration challeneg for you... and we're going to the Beach! 

I used to have Christmases like that when I lived in Hawaii & Florida... Oh, the warm sand in your toes! 

I pulled out a very old set from Stampin' Up! called Sunny Seasons, this was my very first purchase from Stampin' Up! some 14 years ago.. Wow!!! 

I stamped the palm tree and sun images onto some watercolor paper and colored them in with watercolor pencils. Once it was dry I die cut the image panel with the Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle die and then cut a second panel from some Daffodil Delight DSP to off set behind it. I added both pieces to a Baked Brown Sugar card base and then I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it onto a small piece of Baked Brown Sugar and added it to the front all with some Clear Wink of Stella to all the lights on the tree. 

Head over to the 'Tis the Season challenge blog and see what the other Design Team members created with this fun Inspiration. We hope you will join us, the challenge is open until Tuesday March 31st @12pm EST. 

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Holly I think your card is the best of all of them on 'Tis the Season...I absolutely loved this card. I can feel the warmth of the
    sun, sand, and water and the decorated tree made me laugh...such a great card. Thanks for sharing. God bless.

  2. What a fun card! I have never seen this image it!
    I sure would like to go to a beach about now!
