I am in Christmas mood!

** There is still time to enter my BIG giveaway. See the side bar for details.

Even though Diwali is just around the corner, I don't know why but I am in Christmas mood. Anything I create is Christmas-y these days (Its probably because of all the new Christmas craft goodies I got recently :D )

Well, since I am anyways creating Christmas cards, I thought I'd enter a few challenges. The first is the  Hero Arts October Challenge. I loved this month's sketches and wanted to give them a try. I also used the Polka Door Inspiration picture for the lovely colors and holiday theme.


  Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Hero Arts(CL355, CG211, CG245, CG125); ink: Distress Inks(Walnut Stain, Barn Door, Shabby Shutters), Versamark embossing ink;embellishments: Kaisercrafts(Rhinestones - Red), Twine from The Twinery

 I have used 3 different Hero Arts background Stamps- clear embossed and covered with 3 different distress inks to create my own pattern paper. I then used those pattern papers to create my tiny dimensional ornaments. For the the background, I clear embossed the Christmas sentiment on Kraft card stock, I love that effect :)  And all that was left to do, was sprinkling gorgeous red rhinestones and finishing with it some twine.
I also wanted to participate in Young Crafters Unite Challenge of creating matching envelopes. I created this one with vellum, love the soft look. embellished the flap with the same circles used to make the ornaments on the card, gemstone and some twine.

 

Come back tomorrow for my first PPRS Challenge Inspiration Post!

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
