Oh, what fun

** 3/4/17 Winner at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge! **
** 3/9/17 DT Favorite at Sweet Stampers Challenge Blog! **

Update: This challenge blog abruptly closed down in mid-April, after only a couple challenges. :(

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a fantastic February – can you believe it’s just about over, lol! You’ll remember a few weeks back I announced that I joined the Season’s Greetings Christmas Challenge DT. All of our challenges are Anything Goes and there’s always an optional twist there to inspire you. I’m super stoked to share my debut DT inspiration project for Challenge #2 – Anything Goes with optional twist of Color Combo! The twist this time is this neat color combo:


I created a one-layer card using three of these four colors along with a die and stamp set from my stash. One-layer cards are not easy for me but this one actually just came together like it was meant to be! Just look at these little guys! :D


This was the perfect opportunity to use the round dies from the new YNS Peek A Boo Trio die set.  I can’t tell you how in love I am with the adorable SU Cookie-Cutter Christmas stamp set with coordinating punch. The card name ‘Oh, what fun’ hits the nail right on the head, lol! This was a blast to make! The stamped sentiment, the stamped texture just above the circle die cuts, the bow ties on the gingerbread men and the scattered hearts all match the colors in the combo. I’m really loving how this turned out!


I kept the inside very simple with just a stamped sentiment. It felt very strange not having a layered panel to adhere, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
