OK . . . Let’s Get Merry!

Happy Monday!!

Popping in again today to share another sample for the ABC Toys & Crafts DT Challenge, which is to create a project using NON-TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY COLORS (in other words, no green and red!)

OK Lets Get Merry
STAMPS:  Get Merry (Hero Arts)
Tangelo Orange (Memento)
PAPER:  White CS (Neenah), Blu Raspberry, Sno Cone and Orange CS (Poptone)
Teal Green Gemstones (Hero Arts), Orange Gemstones (Icons), 3-D Dots (EK Success), Circle Embossing Plate (Papertrey Ink), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Baker’s Twine (Divine Twine)

I’ve had these Spellbinder’s Create A Flake #2 dies for what seems like forever, and was so excited for the opportunity to finally crack them open.  Oh how fun it was to create the different layers of flakes in the alternating colors!!  Of course, I had to bling them up a bit with some self-adhesive gems from Hero Arts.  And this project was super easy and fun to create – another quick possibility for my family Christmas cards (if I ever get around to making them!  LOL)  I think my color scheme definitely qualifies for the challenge, don’t you?  There aren’t too many aqua and orange snowflakes around that I know of.  Hehehe  The sentiment is from the Get Merry clear set from Hero Arts.  Another great and versatile holiday stamp set that I know I’ll use year after year.  No stamp collection should be without it!!  I'll also be submitting this for the One Crazy Stamper Christmas/Winter Challenge.

The December ABC Toys & Crafts Challenge just started yesterday and lasts until December 18th.  We’d love for you to play along with us, and of course, there’s a great prize available for the winner.  You can get all the details of the challenge, see some awesome inspiration, as well as upload your projects to the InLinkz widget if you click on the blinkie below. 

Oh, and one last thing before I go – ABC Toys & Crafts is having a storewide sale – nearly everything in the store is 20% off through December 18th.  So if you’ve got some delicious crafting supplies on your wish list, now would be a good time to tell Santa that you’ve been a good girl and would really like some goodies from ABC Toys & Crafts!  LOL

That’s it for me today, peeps!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
