12 Days of Christmas with Kylie & Friends


Hi there blog friends! It's that time of year, and once again Kylie (owner, Happy Little Stampers) is sponsoring her 12 Days of Christmas Card Challenge!


 Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for everyday crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from every day to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

So, in the spirit of Christmas, I created this card:


Back in August, I was inspired by this card created by Nancy Littrell and immediately ordered this die...I created the sky with watercolors and dotted it with a glue pen and fine glitter. I added the deer for interest and embossed the sentiment in silver.

Kylie is offering random prizes for a shopping spree at Happy Little Stampers, so if you're looking for some fabulous inspiration and would like to play along, join us! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and a special thank you to Kylie for asking me to take part in her challenge!






Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts - Merry Christmas Trees
Dies: Memory Box - Stitched Circle Trees, Deer; MFT - A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX
Ink: Versamark; Peerless Watercolors
Misc: Quickie Glue Pen; Ranger Silver EP; PTI - Ultrafine Prisma Glitter

Such a beauty Barb and it's what I would call a 'classic' Christmas card with a modern take, I adore that sweet little deer that you added!

YOur beautiful sky panel really sets off the clean whiteness of the trees. I love that it is a circular inset into a portrait oriented card.
