Get Cracking on Christmas Challenge


I am so excited to be joining Jenn Shurkus and this fabulous group of crafters for this fun Holiday Hop. Every year so many of us card makers say we run out of time to create our own holiday cards. Jen and Chari started this monthly feature on their blogs to help kick their own booties in gear and not be stuck without cards this holiday season. It's the third Thursday of the month, and  we are inviting you all to join us. Come make a holiday card, or two or three to get a jump start on your own holiday stash. You should have arrived here from Teri Anderson's Blog. You'll find the full blog hop listed below. 

I had fun with the Reverse Confetti Mod Floral Stack stamps and all the green inks by RC. I created a Christmas tree and love how it turned out. I started with the darkest ink, Olive,  at the bottom with the largest Mod Floral Stack stamp and worked my way up with the smallest image in the lightest ink (in order here are the other colors I used: Lime, Pistachio, and Seafoam). I used the Mod Floral Stack Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I topped the tree with a white glittery star from Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts



I added all the pieces to a Premium Polar White card stock panel cut from the Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cut. I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Christmas in Avocado ink. I finished the panel off with some clear rhinestones for another little extra bit of shimmer. 



I am so excited to see what the rest of the line up has in store for us. Lot's of holiday inspiration, that's for certain. I'm the end of the line up, so follow me back to Jenn's blog so we don't miss any of the excitement.
