Christmas Card Challenges

 I am loving that Muse has a Christmas Card challenge.  This is the 4th...I am kinda bummed I missed a couple while on vacation.  It is JUNE people...Christmas is coming!  Get started on those cards.

Tracey's pretty trees and snowy  backdrop (pictured below with the challenge icons) are just lovely and one can't help but smile looking at them. I was inspired by the two trees, the simple sentiment in black and that wonderful blue snowy sky.

Supplies: SSS Be Joyful, ME Landscape trio, Epoxy stars, versamark, LF black licorice, DI in Broken China, SSS ink in Leaft Green.

I don't make a whole lot of one layer cards... I find them intimidating. One wrong stamp...and guess what.  I have two stamp positing tools...but neither is fool proof. On to my entry for the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge, anything goes with the optional element a Poinsettia.

Supplies: Stampendous Cling Poinsettia, WPlus9 Festive Greetings, Versamark, LF Black Licorice, Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Black liquid pearls, Stampin Up Cardstock.

The last of my holiday cards for this week is for Merry Monday #161-sparkle, bling and shine.

I used Delicata Gold ink and some gold confetti from Pretty Pink Posh for the bling.  Other supplies include SSS Merry and Bright stamp set, On Point SU embossing folder, PPP Stitched duo one die. I also put a few glossy accent dots for some subtle shine.
