Hi Everyone. Happy Monday.
It's my final turn as featured designer at Merry Monday this week and I can honestly say that I have had a blast this last month. The MM team is a very talented group of ladies and I am so pleased to have been playing along with them in September.
It's the fabulous Katie's turn to host our challenge this week and she has a fabulous one:
Now, there are so many wonderful places you can go with dots and stripes - from warm and cozy and log cabiny - all the way to clean and simple. I bet you can guess which way I went!
I used a Papertrey Ink set called Holiday Cheer to stamp my striped - and dotted - trees. I used Mellow Moss ink, which is a gorgeous deep holiday green and paired it with some SU speciality DSO that has fabulous gold stripes. I popped the trees up on dimensionals and added some gold stickles to create the "dots" well, actually baubles :-) - on the tree.
I thought the sentiment should be a little muted, as I wanted the trees to take center stage, so I stamped them with Gold Encore Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.
I hope you pop along to Merry Monday and play along with us this week. Don't forget to check out the fabulous design team cards, too. It's getting to the time where we should be planning our Christmas cards and you will find lots of great inspiration from the design team.
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift today.
