"Silent Night"

Here's another card made with the beautiful Silent Night stamp set, when I first saw this set in the SU! catty, it completely passed me by, not the sort of thing I'd normally go for, so I didn't really register it. Then I saw some of the fantastic cards other Demo's had made with it, and when I visited another SU Demo, Rachel and had a play with some of her stamps, I stamped out a couple of image from this set & fell, completely & utterly in love! So much so I've now got my own & will be making quite a few Christmas cards with this set for sure. Only two stamps in the set, this one & a lovely saying in a beautiful handwritten script.

The image is large and IMO needs no colouring in, so you've got a card pretty much in an instant with it, I've added SU! Heat & Stick powder & then my SU! Dazzling Diamonds (no glitter drift if you use the powder first) and I think that's all the image needs.

I'm entering my card into Stamp With Us, who are also having a DT call (so fingers crossed) and their theme this week was a recipe challenge -
1 stamp, 2 papers; 3 brads.

I also entering it into Creative Card Crew's challenge, and their theme is favourite things, well I think this stamp definitely falls into this category!

Here's the rest of the details - all Stampin; Up!
Stamp - Silent Night
Ink - Chocolate Chip
DSPs - Merry Moments
Cardstock - Very Vanilla; Chocolate Chip; Old Olive (I've distressed the Olive layer)
Brads -from stash - non SU!

Jan, I can't believe you have time to be on another DT, lol. You are one busy lady. I love this card and quite agree with you about the stamp, you need to see some examples to value it's worth. Love what you've doe with it here and good tip about the heat and stick stopping it shedding all over. Thanks for playing along and for entering the DT call.
