Merry Christmas with a Cherry on top!


Papertrey Ink challenged us this week, to review the Masters Stamp-A-Faire,
and choose one of the designer's brilliant creations, and do a 'remix'.
If you played along, a few weeks ago, you enjoyed lesson 
after lesson, of style, creativity, and art masters.
So glad to be able to go just a bit deeper into what was the 
best SAF yet!


Betsy Veldman, and Masterpieces with the Team, re-introduced me
to Disney Artist, Ralph Hulett.
If you're a fan of Disney animation, vintage retro Christmas, and
joyous art, visit Betsy's post again. You're in for a treat if you do!

The photo above is a Christmas card by Ralph Hulett, and one
I used as inspiration for my remix card.


The first thing I noticed about my inspiration piece was it's long, verticals.
My card was cut to 3 1/2 x 5 1/2". 
And of course, those colors, and color blocking. Complete whimsy!
BB: Superstripes (Lavender Moon) onto Lavender Moon card stock.
A Second Helping of Sunshine, helped me recreate the warmth
of the stove and punchbowl.
Ornament hangers from Holiday Button Bits.
Ornaments from Take a Bough.
The script and size from O Holy Night was the perfect anchor for the
vintage scale.
The Master's Stamp-A-Faire is a wonderful reference.
Hope you get a chance to play all those amazing videos again!
