Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Guest Designer!

Hi there! I'm here with my first project as a Guest Designer at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge for the month of December! Our first challenge theme this month is Blue, Blue Christmas!

Now, I can honestly say I am not usually a fan of blue at Christmas...not sure why, just not a fan. But, after creating this card, I may have to go a little crazy and add a little bit of blue at Christmas every now and then! I really love how it turned out!

I used one of my new favorite Christmas stamp sets from Flourishes called Christmas Classics. I stamped it and paper-pieced the stockings with these beautiful BoBunny Snowy Serenade papers I had left over from last Winter. Then I colored the rest of the image with many shades of blue Copics, stamped my sentiment from Flourishes Sweets of the Season set and cut it out with a Spellbinders die. I added some sparkly light blue ribbon and a shimmery turquoise ribbon to make a bundle of bows. I used another Spellbinders die to cut some flourish shapes and tucked them in behind my sentiment. A couple of blue pearls and a bit of Whirlpool Stickles make it a Blue, Blue Christmas card!

Be sure to stop by the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog for all the details of the new challenge and leave a little love for their very talented Design Team too!
