The holidays are just days away. I wish you all Happy Holidays - Merry Christmas and hope you are able to be with loved ones and celebrate the meaning of Christmas.
Welcome to another challenge at The Merry Christmas Challenge #48
The theme is always ANYTHING GOES + CHRISTMAS
We have some awesome inspiration and maybe a CAS card for that last minute person you need a card for..
Check out the Holy and Ivy design team creations over at TMCC blog.
This was pretty much a CAS card. I stamped the "Creations unlimited" wood block stamp on Bristol paper and colored with my Zig markers. I cut out using My Favorite Things oval stitch die. I used the Simon Says believe die and cut it out three times and layered..
NOW I need to tell you a funny story.... So I used green cardstock to cut the believe out and once it was done I did not like the look against the image. So I took Versa mark and laid the believe in it and then into the Stampin Up embossing powder.. I heated it.. well it did not look thick enough so instead of adding more Versa mark I just heated it and put it back into the embossing powder.. well I still had the heat gun going and I aimed it towards the embossing powder... I HAVE EMBOSSING POWDER .. GLITTERY SILVER EMBOSSING POWDER EVERYWHERE... I DO MEAN EVERYWHERE.. I was wearing it, my desk was wearing it.. I finished heating and repeated again --minus the heat gun- and heated again and got the nice thick silver look I wanted... I used my Swiffer rag to try to clean up the desk. I shook out my sweatshirt .. I don't think I am wearing it now.. I must admit I did laugh.
I added some flat sequins. It was done. It took me longer to clean up than to make this card.. LOL
So I hope you find time to play along. I know it's close to the holidays and we are all busy.. but maybe you can find a time where you want to relax and do something fun and create. Happy Holidays to you all.
