Hi everyone! Happy Monday and October 1st! Can you believe how fast the time is flying by?! Another fun challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #3 – October Anything Christmas Goes! This huge stamp is from Sparkle N Sprinkle – I absolutely love Stella (kinda reminds me of me, lol) and I had a grand time creating this Christmas card!


What a fun stamp, lol! I colored the image with Zig Clean Color markers and layered it on black glitter paper, and then layered it on some fun paper that looks like red flannel material. I added a scrap of crochet ribbon, some black glitter Gumdrops and a tiny red bow.


I decorated the inside panel with a strip of red cardstock and a scrap of black glitter paper, then stamped the sentiment and layered it on black cardstock. Love how this fun card turned out!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black cardstock, Stampin’ Up Black Glimmer Paper, Stampin’ Up Warmth & Cheer DSP

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
