MLC JUL- Winter Wishes

It's the first of the month... Welcome to JULY!!! We've passed the halfway mark to Christmas, how are you doing on you Christmas card stash? Today I'm here to share my card for July's Merry Little Christmas Challenge blog, it is as always anything goes!


I had this scrap of gold foiled plaid cardstock sitting in my scrap pile. I had been looking through it for some scrap for another project when I saw this and new what I wanted to do with it. I grab some recently acquired MFT stamps and heat embossed some snowflakes on it. Once the embossing was cooled I used the new Speckeled Egg distress ink from Ranger for some ink resist over the snowflakes. 


I really enjoyed how the snowflakes and foiling resisted the color. I should've planned ahead for a whole set! To finish the card I layered in on some colored cardstock and adhered some sequins, jewels and drops.

I hope you visit all my teammates to see what they created this month and join us on the blog for the challenge, can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Jun SID- Life's a beach

Hello crafty friends, it's time to share my card for June's Stick It Down Sketch. Here is a look at the sketch incase you haven't seen it yet.
Here is my card, I stayed pretty true to the sketch this time around, just moved my sentiment to the bottom portion of my main image. I just recently acquired an Avery Elle set that has been on my wish list since it was released and wanted to use it for this months card. I searched through my stash for some pattern paper and found an older Lawn Fawn pack that would be perfect. I layered the paper according to the sketch and added my colored die cut beach houses with some foam adhesive. 


Please don't forget to join us over at Stick It Down to play along. We also have two layout sketches if you want to play along with the scrapping teams! Can't wait to see what you create! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

MLC- May


Welcome to May and our new month of  Merry Little Christmas challenge christmas blog. This month is as always anything goes!

 This month I made for cards using the A and B sides of some pattern paper from the stash. I used the same layout for the card to pick and choose how the paper was going to be adhered down. The top of the card is actually folded back and stuck down with the pattern paper adhered on top. I then just added the sentiment on a die cut piece of white. They could be jazzed up a little more, but I choose to leave them clean and simple. This is a good way to use up some paper stash... if you are like me and have way more pattern paper then you need and keep buying more! ;-)





I hope you visit all my teammates to see what they created this month and join us on the blog for the challenge, can't wait to see what you create!

APR MLC

Hello and happy April! It's a new month again and the means time for a new challenge over at Merry Little Christmas challenge blog! The challenge is Anything goes as long as it's christmas. Here is my card for the month. 


I used a mix of two Hero Arts sets for the card, one for the sentiment and the other for the ornaments. Once the sentiment was stamped I added the ornaments underneath and then drew the strings for them to hang from. Added a small strip of some stripe paper to finish the card. 

Hope to see you over at the Merry Little Christmas blog this month. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
