Merry Christmas Stocking and Gift...STAMPlorations CUTplorations December 2017 Challenge


Welcome to STAMPlorations CUTplorations December 2017 Challenge, where Maria has chosen this lovely decorated tree to inspire us!

My inspiration comes from the lovely white boughs and the pops of colour. Did a little spotlight copic colouring to frame the sentiment....a bit tricky to get some of the little bits re-aligned but I managed most of them (no close looks!)

Warm Hands, Warm Hearts stamps and dies

AND, because I have a pretty tree stencil, I decided to make a second card, sparked by the 'whimsy' of the image that does bring me joy...

Please visit the rest of my talented teammates to see their wonderful CUTplorations creations, then bring your STAMPlorations dies out and play along with us!

  1. Simply FABulous Carol. I adore that camouflage technique and your colouring to the little stocking and pressie is simply awesome. So effective and a brilliant, neat and classy die-cut sentiment. Perfect for Xmas and perfect for our challenge. Thanks for playing along at Less is More this week.

  2. WOW! Two amazing cards, but this is the first card that knocked me down! Wonderful.

  6. It's been a long time since I've been here - you have 23 posts I haven't seen! So I've refilled my coffee cup and am going to enjoy every moment - likely including putting things on my wishlist (because you always do that to me!)
