Well, here we are at the end of our first full week for 25 days of Christmas Cards. I do hope you're all enjoying them and perhaps even being inspired to create some of your own interpretations!
Before we get into the details of today's card, let's talk about the PCC Challenge for this week! Now, I know that December is a busy time for everyone, including myself and there may not be a lot of time to do crafting.
PCC Challenge # 7 will be "Christmas Anything Goes" and will last for the entire month of December!
You may create any Christmas themed card you want and link it up here. 3 entries per person rule still applys, however. You can link up your creations from now until Dec 29. I know I will be busy with holiday family things throughout the month, so while I plan to come around and comment as much as I can, I do know that I will not be doing a winners post for this month.
Regular bi-weekly challenges will resume in January.
I am so excited too to introduce two fabulous crafters who have agreed to be on my 1st Design Team (I'm still looking for 2 more people, so please email me if you're interested firstname.lastname@example.org)
The first is Amy from AO Creations: Amy created this super cute card using the Santa from the stamp set "Santa Paws" from Paper Smooches. The sentiment is also from Paper Smooches from the set called "Holiday Cheer"and that is stamped with Gina K Ink. The frame is from Paper Smooches as well "Fancy Frames Icons. She used Paper Trey Ink Card Stock and colored up the image with Copic Markers. In addition, she also used the "Rectangles Dotted Dies" from Sizzix.
The next person I want to welcome is Valeryanne from It's An Alien Life Valeryanne created two projects for this challenge. She used the empty spools from cellotape and ds tape along with acetate to make two hanging Christmas Ornaments.The first uses Inkylicious 'Winter Cabin' to make the little snow scene and the second one uses Cardio 'Penquins' to make the artic scene.
Anyhow, it's pretty straightforward. The sentiment is from an old set I bought years ago from Michael's. I stamped it in black ink and then used some Prisma Color Pencils to color in his hat and beard. I added some twine and silver stickles along the edges of the center panels to finish the card.
Have a great day everyone. I will see you again tomorrow!
