And just when you thought it was OK to pack away your Christmas stamps I'm here to encourage you to keep them all to hand. Today sees the first 2017 Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.
So why not make a card and get ahead for 2017? You'll see the theme is really easy peasy, but if you'd like to stretch your creativity a bit more then go with the optional twist of JOY.
I used the new HLS stamp set Christmas Joy as a starting point for my card. Once stamped I die cut a stitched panel and added it to some plaid paper - loving that purple paired up with blue and green.
Stamps: HLS, Christmas Joy
Inks: Mmento, grape jelly, tuxedo black
Paper: Paper Cellar, squares
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched basic edges
Here's hoping I've persuaded you to go with it for Christmas 2017. Take a peek here to see how my team mates at HLS are trying to do the same.
So pleased you dropped by today, thanks so much for your time. And keep crafting!
