Christmas X 2


Card #1 was inspired by 3 challenges...

Inspired By Challenges // #IB264 ...An inspiration challenge!!  The inspiration photo for this challenge had a colorful string of lings and some black & white twine, so I included both on my card.  When I saw this photo I right away thought of this box of trimmings being carried in from storage...a fun stamp from Newton's Nook.

Less Is More // #LIM497 ...An alphabet challenge!!  D is for Deck the Halls!!  How fun!!  Can you make a Deck the Halls card that is CAS?  Yes, you can with this fun trimming the tree image.

Never Before Used Schtuff // #NBUS56 ...A "never been used" challenge!!  This image from a Newton's Nook set has never been inked up until today!!  I love this chic carrying the box of holiday trims out of storage...we plan to do that this weekend!!

I must say...I don't think I will ever layer this image again!!  Cutting out those teeny tiny light bulbs was a killer!!

Card #2 was inspired by 3 challenges...

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC156 ...A color challenge!!  Boho Blue, Lemon Lolly, and Moody Mauve.  So many possibilities!!  For me I created a wintery backdrop my my snowflake.

Global Design Project // #GDP422 ...A sketch challenge!!  A fun sketch.  I had created a background layer with the challenge colors for ICC's challenge and decided this sketch was perfect for showcasing it...so instead of using the whole layer, I punched out 4 squares from it.  Thanks for the inspiration!!

Just Add Ink // #JAI680 ...A "just add" challenge!!  For this current challenge we are to "add" alcohol!!  Several of the DT samples had us adding alcohol (as in drinks) images, but I decided to use actually alcohol (as in rubbing alcohol) in my background technique!!
