We meet once again. So glad you are back!
So I’m over the halfway hump and in the final stretch of 12 in 12. (Ashley, my partner in challenge happiness, how you doing out there?)
So here’s my take on Day 7.
Ta-da! (Yes, a little dramatic effect does a post good, don’t you think?)
The wreath was created with a stamp from Neat and Tangled’s Simple Christmas set. My stamping was a little chaotic here so I added a few pearls and a twine bow (using twine from Whisker Graphics) to balance things out.
The sentiment is from Jingle All the Way by Ali Edwards, one of my all-time favorite Christmas sets from Technique Tuesday. Such a delicious mix of fonts and sayings. Great for card makers and scrapbookers.
Alright. So with that, Day 7 is D.O.N.E. Be sure to see what Ashley made today! She’s been rocking out this challenge!
Be back again tomorrow.
(PS. Tuesday is Studio Blog Hop day for December so I’ll have 2 posts.)
And here we go again.
Another 12 in 12 card.
Made this guy almost entirely with Avery Elle’s Let It Snow stamp set. Just plain love the stamp set!
I created the snow by stamping set’s snow background stamp on the panel. Then, I pulled out my old, long-forgotten friend, my bottle of white Liquid Applique. I put little dots on top, heated them up with my heat gun and got the little pom poms of snow.
Kinda fun, right?
So that concludes Day 6! Can’t wait to see what Ashley cooked up for our “half-way through the challenge” day!
Be back again tomorrow.
It’s Day 5 of the 12 in 12 holiday challenge. So meet my take on it!
I’ve long been a fan of banners so I decided to give it a try for today’s card. Rather than flags, I used a couple tags stamped with Kelly Purkey’s Tis the Season set from Simon Says Stamp!
The holly element is a sticker from Me & My Big Ideas. The papers are just scraps leftover from other recent projects.
Looking forward to seeing what Ashley’s made today. I am sure it won’t disappoint.
We meet again.
Another day. Another take on my 12 in 12 challenge with Ashley.
I had a strong desire to make a funky tree of sorts with the Holiday Layered Tree stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! today. So, yep, I die-cut a base with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Journaling card and then stamped a few random tree branches.
I dolled it up with … really… a random bunch of embellishments (a chipboard snowflake, a gem and some epoxy dots). The trunk is a piece of jute.
By the way, the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp!, too. It’s from the Santa’s Coming by Kelly Purkey stamp set. It’s a fun one.
Alright! That is today’s card. Bam.
Be sure to check out Ashley’s take on today’s challenge. Be back tomorrow.
Hi all! Me again.
Back again for another 12 in 12 post. Meet today’s card!
The second I saw Kelly Purkey’s Cheers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp!, I knew it would be mine and would be perfect to make a few cards two of my closest friends, B & P. They are fellas so I can’t go all girlie girl on cards for them. Because… trust me… if I did, I’d never (ever) hear the end of it.
I still haven’t quite heard the end of the time that B and I went to a stamp convention a couple years ago, and… well…
Hmmm. Yeah, we’ll save that story for another day.
Alright, so that’s all I have. Be back later, gators!
PS… Don’t forget to check out Ashley’s blog to see her take on Day 3 of our 12 in 12 challenge. Can’t wait to see.
Another day. Another 12 in 12 card.
Played on the cute and (sorta) shabby side today!
The holiday season element is a tag that pops apart from We R Memory Keepers. I just snipped off the top and then popped up the middle element with foam tape.
Added a little extra ink around the edges of the this guy. I tend to not be much of an edge inker so it’s a bit of a walk on the wild side for me here. But change is good, right?
Can’t wait to see what Ashley did today!
Be back again later… gators.
Thanks for stopping by, y’all!
Yep. It’s the time of the year again when my pal Ashley and I challenge each other to tackle Christmas cards.
Last year, we did 25 cards in 25 days (and then some). This year, we are scaling back and going with a good solid 12.
So meet my take on Day No. 1.
A soft, eclectic card today. Paired together mostly stuff from Crate Paper’s Bundled Up collection.
Added some cardstock, a doily and some random sequins to the mix, too!
Looking forward to seeing what Ashley’s cooked up today!
Be back tomorrow with another card.
