I know, I know. I can't seem to stop making Christmas cards. I'm saying this is the beginning for next year and that I will work on them all year, but who am I kidding? I will do this until about mid-January, lose interest, and go back to other occasions. Ha!
I'm playing along with some challenges today, too.
Colour Q color inspiration:
I used my Avery Elle Winter Wreath stamp set and my SSS Candy Cane Christmas stamp set in Sorbet, Sunflower, and Tulip CTMH colors. I also used Simply Chartreuse from PTI. My CTMH Olive was too olive.
The elements on the wreath were stamped and fussy cut. I was lucky enough to have a circle punch that perfectly fit the peppermints. Phew! I can't cut a circle to save my life. They look AWFUL. :) The embossed/die cut panel is from my Lil Inker Designs Rounded Rectangle die set. (Christmas gift, whooohooo!).
I am also playing along with the weekly Christmas Card Challenges for Anything Goes week.
The next one I want to share was a lot of fun to make, as well. I used the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge for my layout inspiration. Along with CASology's "LIGHT" Cue card. A perfect pairing!
I used my Paper Smooches "Freezy Fellas" stamp set to stamp the little light bulbs on strings. I first traced a shape of a container I had on my desk with a pencil to use as a guide for my bulbs. I then stamped them repeatedly along the strings before tracing the string with a black journaling pen. I colored each bulb with Spectrum Noir Markers (also used to draw the light "beams") and stamped the sentiment from PTI's 'Tis The Season set. Lastly, I added a coat of CTMH Liquid Glass to each bulb. Voila!
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
God Bless and Happy New Year,
