Mellow Mondays .......

Morning all,

Have a question to ask you all .... you recall how I swap materials for ATC's with a buddy on the Isle of Skye (no, that's NOT the question)? I received my latest materials and my question is .... what on earth to do with them? Here they are .....

Incoming materials received, fan from a magazine, oriental outfit on acetate
and a square floral sticker

Now these challenge materials had me stumped so I figured I would leave them to one side and go do something else ........ so, what did I make? FINALLY, a Christmas card, honestly, I am soooooooo behind with my 2015 quota despite my best efforts but I DO have one to share today - it might be a suitable batch make should I find myself in November and STILL waaaay behind!

My Christmas card
And a close up to show the glitter

And its co-ordinating inside and envelope

Materials used:

  • 15cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Stamplorations splatter frame stamped using Memento pear tart ink
  • Stamplorations sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Stamplorations Christmas tree stamped using Adirondack bottle ink
  • Crystal stickles to highlight
  • Judikins micro glaze applied to protect the water based inks in transit

I'll be entering this card for the following challenges:

  1. Happy Little Stampers - JULY Christmas challenge - TREE
  2. Aloha Friday - challenge No. 51 - CHRISTMAS IN JULY
  3. Simply Create Too - challenge No. 89 - GET AHEAD FOR CHRISTMAS
  4. Christmas Stamping All Year Round - challenge No. 50 - SNOW OR GLITTER ..... I went with a lot of glitter (glue)
  5. Sweet Stampin' Challenge - JULY challenge - CHRISTMAS IN JULY

At least that's one more to add to the pile for 2015! Yee Haa!

Have a great week
