I was so thrilled to get my first ever blog up and running a few weeks ago with lots of help from my wonderful (and very generous) friend, Loll Thompson (of Stamping with Loll). She taught me all the basics and I got a couple of posts done and then my computer died. I'll be getting a new one soon, but meanwhile I'm using an ancient iPad which is very limited. So Loll is kindly stepping up again and helping me get this posted and linked to Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.
I'm thrilled to have been chosen to be on the Design Team for the Christmas Card Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. The theme for July is "tree".
I used a Penny Black stamp called "Twinkling Tree". I love the way it reminds me of a small tree in my front garden that I decorate with colored lights every Christmas.
I stamped it, then colored in the "lights" with markers, then went over them with Glossy Accents. My "twinkle" word die seemed perfect. I cut it twice out of dark gold cs and layered them. I used the same dark gold to border the focal image.
Please come and join us at Happy Little Stampers and add your Christmas tree cards!
I'm going to enter this into two other challenges that are currently running at Happy Little Stampers, this month's Sketch Challenge and the CAS Challenge - Stamping.
Supplies: Penny Black Twinkling Tree stamp, Tim Holtz word die, white and dark gold cs, markers, Glossy Accents, Ranger Archival Jet Black ink
