Merry Christmas Keeping Christmas

September 25, 2018

WOW!  3 months until Christmas!  Time to get started on your stash!

I am honored to be a part of the Keeping Christmas Inspiration Blog Hop.  

It's time for this month's installment of Keeping Christmas with The Challenge Design Team!  We will be sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month!!!

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in our stash ready to go for December 2018!

So hop along and be sure to visit each blog. 
There is a lot of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

My cards are created on white card bases.  I found two different snowflake patterned papers in my stash and adhered them to the top of my base.  The white cover panel is created using the 
MFT Bold Stripes die.  I added a white stitched circle next.  

 The MFT Merry Christmas Circle die was used to cut out the sentiment.  The little snowmen are from Lawn Fawn Ready, Set, Snow stamp set.  I colored them with Copic Markers and added a white snow drift to complete the circle.  I stamped a few white snowflakes on the circle.  Sparkling clear sequins and Wink of Stella was added to complete my cards.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!

The hop is hosted by the fabulous Kelly Lunceford's blog, so head over there to start from the beginning.

ENJOY the blog hop!  I hope we inspired you to make a few cards, too!
