Christmas in August?




Yes! It's that time of year again! The time when we inspire crafters on both sides of the "pond" with a mix of both Dreamweaver and Woodware UK* products for the holidays! Six days, SIX, of beautiful, elegant, merry, cute, artsy, and craftsy projects to have you heading out to your local stores or internet sites to buy these goodies immediately!


Of course, there will be prizes as well. Three prize packages will be given to three commenters during this week's posts on the team's blogs, including five stencils and one nested die set. You can have an opportunity to win these goodies by leaving some holiday sweetness for each team member posting each day, to be one of the three winners for the week. Here are the team members that are inspiring you today:

Here's my creation: 
Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink Pad
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White Cover Stock
Miscellaneous Red Cardstock
May Arts Ribbon®
Viva Colour® Pearl Pen™ - Ice White
Beacon Adhesive® Zip Dry™
Spectrum Noir Markers:
  • FS1, FS2, FS3, FS4
  • CR1, CR7, CR11
  • DR3, DR6
  • TN2, TN4, TN7
  • GB2, GB8
  • IG1

Here's what I did to create this card:

Paste emboss snowflakes on red cardstock, set aside to dry
Stamp mouse image twice, cut one out to use as a mask
Masking the other mouse, stamp sentiment so that mouse appears to be standing on top
Color image and trim as shown
Trim a mat in red cs to place behind sentiment
Create card base with a tent fold
Once paste is dry, trim piece to correct size
Trim a white mat for embossed piece and adhere the two
Attach ribbon to matted and embossed pieces
Adhere this to card base
Adhere stamped images to ribbon and card

This makes a relatively quick Christmas card with tons of cuteness!  I thoroughly enjoyed creating this one and hope it gives you just the right inspiration for your own!  Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you again tomorrow with more posts for your viewing pleasure!  I do hope you'll leave me some love in the comments section (pssstt...that's how you win!).  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Lea
