Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge .......

Hello again ......

How's your day been?
I had a lovely stroll into town this afternoon ...... a quick look around the shops, managed to pick up a couple of things, and then had a nice coffee and catch up with a friend. I don't need to cook either tonight, we're off to Curry Night at Chris's place which is always good.

It's time to get the second challenge for today underway and we're feeling a little festive for this one ....... it's the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge ..... Ho! Ho! Ho! (sorry!)

It's the regular Anything Goes theme ..... with the optional twist this month of using a mask, or two!

I love this little Christmas Tree from the HLS Christmas Joy stamp set ....... simple to cut out which makes it easy when you need to make a mask.

I made myself a mask to create the hillside from a simple piece of white copier paper.  With this in place I stamped the trees along the edge ......

I started in the centre ..... stamped the tree and made a couple of masks from Post-It notes.  I covered the stamped tree and continued along the whole of the card, masking the trees as I went along.
I coloured them with ZIG Clean Color Brush Pens and added a touch of glitter to define the top of the hills

I stamped the tree again on a separate piece of card ..... coloured it and fussy cut around it, and then attached it over the centre tree using foam pads

A few dots of glitter glue give a touch of sparkle on the tree, and a simple stamped and embossed greeting adds the finishing touch.

Have you made a start on your Christmas cards yet?

As always the challenge is sponsored by the Happy Little Stamper Store

and the challenge winner will receive a Gift Certificate to spend on their next visit.

Thanks for popping by  .... again!  Happy stamping!

Cheerio until next time .....
