Happy New Year 2023, Blogland!
Here's my Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog Design Team make for your inspiration!
A brand new challenge begins today, come join the fun.
Craft Consortium It's Snome Time by Helz Cuppleditch designer papers
Focal image from the designer papers
Dick Blick Tag Board for 6x6 card base
Wausau Rocket Red paper
Washi tapes and snowflake embellies from my stash
Spellbinders Lacy Squares and Classic Squares dies
Crafters Companion sentiment, stamped with Nocturne Versafine Clair ink
Stamplorations stamped sentiment (inside)
I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my layout design, resizing it to 6x6 in PSE.
I very much love these paper illustrated and designed by Helz Cuppleditch for Craft Consortium. The red is so rich and goes well with my Wausau Rocket Red paper. So many different scenes included, but my eyes went right to this adorable snowy scene of the little gnome girl with the birdies and that's the one I chose for my first project with this collection. I used a couple of different square-shaped dies to cut the focal image and frame it. I added a stamped sentiment I thought went perfectly with it and used some of my stash of washi tapes and soft plastic holographic snowflakes.
Inside, a stamped sentiment cut with the lacey squares die on collection paper mats.
This shot of the back with the front came out a tiny bit more green than it actually is, but it shows the continuity. Collection paper matted with the red and a smaller red die cut square as a mat for my stamped and circle-punched siggie.
Close-up of the shine coming off the snowflakes and off the embossed collection papers as well...
And one last look. If I'm smart, I will be able to make a gazillion Christmas cards from just this one collection, so if you see it again here, blame it on my uber-feels for these colors, designer Helz Cuppleditch...and Gnomes. If I don't forget I have it (again! 😶).
Thanks for the visit and happy new year!
