Happy Little Stampers ~ October Christmas Challenge

Are you starting to get ready for Christmas 2022? Maybe, you're working on Christmas cards. If you are, we'd love for you to join us at Happy Little Stampers ~ Christmas Challenge. Our challenge this month is

Here's my card

I wasn't sure what to do for the optional challenge of "frame". I looked through my dies and found this Paper Rose Window 2 metal die, which creates a great frame looking outside. I created a little scene starting with tumbled glass distress ink applied to some white cardstock with an oval ink blending brush. I then stamped some snowflakes using Hero Arts Winter Silhouettes and Versamark ink, for a bit of a tone-on-tone look. Here's a close-up.

I added the trees and deer using the same Hero Arts stamp set and Hero Arts Field Green and Cup O' Joe inks. For the window frame, I die cut some kraft cardstock with the Paper Rose Window 2 metal die and then swiped Hero Arts Cup O' Joe ink, in one direction to try to re-create a wood look. On a natural A2 card panel, I heat embossed the sentiment using Clearly Besotted's Many Mini Messages and gold embossing powder. I adhered the scene behind the frame and glued it all to the natural panel. I adhered the panel to a white card base to complete the card.

We'd love to see you Christmas creations in our gallery this month.
