Hello Crafters! Is October flying by or what? It is hard to believe that Christmas is 2.5 months away...yikes! Gotta get more of those Christmas cards finished! If you are working on your Christmas cards then you should share them at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra October Challenge. It is always anything goes and you can enter as many times as you want. Yay! This month Hazel has asked if I could be the Guest Designer and I jumped at the opportunity! Thanks so much, Hazel!
For my mid month inspiration card I decided to use Quietfire's Christmas stamp "Christmas waves a magic wand". It was heat embossed on ivory paper from Graphic 45's Twelve Days of Christmas and die cut with Spellbinders Ovals die. Green paper (same G45) was die cut from Cheery Lynn's French Pastry die. Red paper (G45) was die cut using Memory Box's Poinsettia dies. A scrap piece of corrugated board was cut into a banner. Plaid paper (G45) was cut to size. All paper was distressed along the edges using Tim Holtz' Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. Stickles, bling and ribbon was added as shown.
A big THANK YOU to Hazel for being the guest designer this month. Hazel and her design team are so nice and inspirational...you should pop on over to see the creativity! And enter your Christmas projects into the challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
