And what a great start to the week it is too!
I'm absolutely thrilled to be Guest Designer again over at Merry Monday. I was chosen as the weekly winner for Challenge #145 ..... and that means I get to be part of the fabulous, talented design team for this week! Always a pleasure.
For this weeks challenge Bonnie's chosen ....... STAR(S) as the theme
We'd like you to create a Christmas card with a Star on it ...... or Stars, the choice is up to you.
I've got some ideas to hopefully inspire you to join in the fun ..... see what you think
First up, a nice CAS design, which I think could be used for any occasion, not just Christmas, just change the words!
I stamped my sentiment across the centre of a piece of white card ........
Then using the Sizzix Bigz Die ..... Crescent Moon & Stars by Tim Holtz, I cut the stars from gold and silver glitter card, and arranged them top and bottom of my sentiment.
I added a few dots of fine glitter around the stars for a little added sparkle
Next up, I've made my STARS into hanging ornaments .......
I stamped the flourish (from Everything Eleanor by Stampin Up) using Crimson Red Versafine, and embossed with a clear sparkle powder
I arranged my stars underneath, and then drew in the lines to 'hang' them from the flourish using a clear Stardust gel pen
A few gems .......
....... and a festive sentiment (SU again) finish it all off
Finally ...... a STAR on top of a Christmas tree
CAS design again .... and so quick and easy to do.
I stamped the tree, in green. Added the sentiment in red (very festive!)
Sprinkled a touch of Chunky White Embossing Powder (Fran-tage) over, and around the tree
And finished off with another of my glittery STARS on the top!
Don't forget about the inside ..... use your stars in there too
OK ..... now it's your turn. Why not join in the fun and make a start on this years Christmas cards! I'm looking forward to seeing all your designs.
Thanks again to the team at Merry Monday for having me on board ..... it's been a real pleasure as always .... MWAH!!
And thanks to you for popping by ........ have a fantastic week.
I think mine's going to be a busy one .... as well as all the usual stuff, there's a trip to the dentist on the calender (looking forward to that ... not!!) And I really need to make a start on some serious packing (cupboards won't empty themselves!) ..... and no the garage didn't get done as planned yesterday (there's a surprise!) A drive out, and a trip to my favourite deli was much more fun! Oh well ...... there's still 4 weeks until we get the keys to the new place .... no need to panic just yet!
Cheerio until next time
