Thinking of You at Christmas

Good morning from a snowy Michigan. We had a heavy snow fall on Sunday night and a few flurries since so it seems to be hanging around!

It's the start of our December Challenge over at SumMore Fun and this month's theme is of course Christmas crafting. You enter by leaving your photo on our SumMore Fun Creations Facebook page in the December challenge album. Don't forget you can use any SumMore Fun stamps to enter and if you subscribe to the newsletter you can get free digital stamps and use these to enter!

On to my make - I love the Swirl Christmas Tree so I decided to use this to make my own design paper: I stamped it multiple times in different angles with green ink

I then used the same green ink on the Thinking of You at Christmas sentiment. I matted my 4.25inx5.5in card base with some festive green mirror card and added my design paper. My sentiment was matted with the same card and I used some green foam sheet to add this to my card giving it dimension. To finish added some pearl pen in Emerald which has a great shine to tie in with the mirror card.
Don't forget that all you have to do is use one of SumMore Fun stamps somewhere on your project to enter our challenge.

All dressed up half way reminder

Good morning! I'm sorry I've not been around, life took a turn and I had to concentrate on things around me - BUT I'm back and will be posting more than ever as I have lots of new goodies to show you

All you need to do is follow this month's current theme which is All Dressed Up and use at least one of their many stamps (even one of the digital freebies!) and you could win a $20 gift card, if the design team love your make we will be giving a prize of $15.

You don't need a blog, you just need a photo of your creation and post it in the current challenge album on our SumMore Fun Creations Face book Page

Ok this month's theme is All dressed up, yes we have just had Halloween so could be a Halloween make but don't forget about Thanksgiving - turkeys, Christmas, party season it's all go at this time of year and we all have some even to make crafts for that will include dressing up.

We don't just want to see cards, if you do mixed media, scrapbooking, journaling, planners anything goes as long as it's hand made by you and follows our theme.

I have decided to do a Christmas themed card for this post. with Jolly old St Nick himself making a comeback

Yes Santa himself gets dressed up for his night on the tiles!
I stamped the Large Dear Old Santa in black ink and colored him with alcohol markers. I then used a circle die to cut him out and inked the edges of the white card so it wasn't so stark.
I matted a white card base with red card and this gorgeous vintage patterned paper. I positioned my image on the card. I then added transparent pearl pen to his glasses imitating the lenses.
I die cut 'believe' and added a few color matching pearls to balance the design.
