CCC #017: Card Challenge "Oh Christmas Tree"

Hey Stampers,

So, its the 7th so that means another Card Challenge over on Catherine and Cathy Create !! Our theme for December is Oh Christmas Tree !! I have a few nice tree stamps, but nothing says a beautiful tree to me like the awesome, must have “Lovely as a Tree” stamp set. So I took out that oldie (but goodie) and got to creating !! Take a look !!

A classic tree like this needed some classic colors - so I used the fab combo of Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake. Love it ! A touch of the Season of Style DSP in the background is beautiful too. A bit of linen thread adds to the rustic charm of this sweet card.

Well, thats it for me today !! Thanks so much for coming by !! And don’t forget to go over to Catherine and Cathy Create to see all the fun ideas our awesome Design Team has over there for you !! And play along with us too, won’t you ?? Hope to see you there and Happy Stamping !!

CCC December Monthly Challenge: Tis the Season !!

Hey Stampers,

Can you even BELIEVE that its December ?? This year has totally flown by !! And of course, another month means more fun challenges over on Catherine and Cathy Create ! The Monthly Challenge this month is Tis the Season aka ANYTHING Christmas !! So you definitely have no excuse to not play along !! There must be something fun you are working on that you can share !! Here is my fun card !!

Isn’t that super fun !! I always can’t wait for the weather to turn a bit colder so I can have some yummy Hot Chocolate - so I thought it would be super cute to take the coffee cup from Perfect Blend and make it Christmassy !! Its so easy to paper piece this fun image. I used Crumb Cake, Whisper White and the polka dot DSP from the Season of Style stack. I also added a Candy Cane from the (retired) Scentsational Season stamp set as a stirrer. Yummy !! The great sentiment is from the Christmas Messages stamp set. Did you know that set is on sale for 30% Off during the Holiday Sale ?? How awesome is that ? So if you haven’t placed an order yet - you need to jump over to my Online Store and see whats happening over there !! 

Well thats it for me today !! And please drop over to Catherine and Cathy Create and join in on our fun challenges !! Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
