Non-traditional Christmas Color

I love being challenged and when I feel I am not, I try to find ways to do it. One of these ways is signing up for a demonstrators online class or party. I recently participated in
 Narelle Fasulo's Virtual Christmas Stamping Party. 
She is just a hoot! You should check her out:)
She had 4 challenges for us to do, played bingo and entered a word scramble.
Challenge 1 is to create a card using non traditional colors. I chose to go with Melon Mambo color.
I used a piece of first frost and placed it across the panel. Stamped the sentiment in tuxedo black and backed it with smoky slate and added a bit of rose thread. I then added a few elements from the Farmhouse elements and a few clear droplets.

I am entering this card in these challenges also:

Sweet Stampin' Christmas-October Challenge-Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge-U for Upon/V is for Very Quick

Oh Christmas Trees in Silver and White


I participated recently in a Virtual Christmas Stamping Party hosted by Narelle Fasulo from Australia. We played several games, she demoed making some ornaments and other items, she had a prize patrol and then had four challenges for us to do. One of the challenges was to use this picture as inspiration. I am entering this card in the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Stampin' Up! Incentive trip for 2020 is to...


Stampin' Up! has fabulous trips each year. In 2019 the trip is to Greece. Yes it would be wonderful to attend but I have always wanted to go to the Hawaiian Islands and now I have that opportunity!
I would love for you to help me achieve that goal. From now and until the trip, I will be giving away a stamp set each month from either the Holiday (while still available) or Annual catalog for every order over $75.00. Each person's name will go into a monthly drawing for a stamp set of their choice of $20.00 value.

Christmas Milk Can, Gable box and Star Ornament

I love Christmas and I can never get enough of the Hallmark Movie Channel when the season starts. My favorite movies are the ones about soldiers. I know it can be tough on them this time of year. So Thank You for your service! I created three items for today. One is a milk can, and the other two I used the tin tile embossing folder for the gable box and a star ornament.

Here is another milk can I got from the dollar general. I turned this one into a Christmas milk can. I used the Festive Farmhouse Christmas Suite. I added some greenery from last year's Christmas supply. The Christmas spray I found at dollar tree and I think it was a fluke, because I have not found any since then, but I keep checking:) I used the dsp from the festive farmhouse to cover the side. I then colored in the house and truck with stampin blends. I adhered them with dimensionals. I then added the burlap ribbon along with the greenery and a galvanized button. I love the how this turned out. It will be on my mantle every year.

The gable box I ran through the tin tile embossing folder and then added the burlap ribbon and a galvanized button to finish it off.
Dsc_0065
The star ornament I also ran through the tin tile embossing folder then I cut it out with a die that I have (not sure where or who it is from.) I thought it made the cutest ornament. You can also leave part of it open to fill with some candy. I added a merry merlot ribbon and then linen thread for a hanger.
