Welcome to another week at Merry Monday! The idea behind this challenge is to get a head start on your Christmas cards! Each week, I choose one Merry Monday Winner who will then be a Guest Designer for a future challenge! So get out your Christmas supplies and let's get to work! September was an awesome month here at Merry Monday! Thank you to September's Featured Designer Terry Blais for joining us!!! October is here! I am excited to announce October's Merry Monday Featured Designer is the Artistic Avenger herself, Carrie Gaskin! I asked Carrie to share a bit about herself!
Hi everyone! My name is Carrie Gaskin and I'm super excited to be with you as a guest designer this month. I've been crafting now for almost 7 years. I've been married almost half of my life to a wonderful guy and have two great kids. I'm really lucky to live in one of the most beautiful spots in North America (BC, Canada) and am thrilled to be able to share my love of card making with you this month.
Here is this week's sketch, as always, please make it your own! I designed the sketch with the idea of using the new Wondrous Wishes stamp set from Stampin' Up...and so I did!! I inked up the image in Cherry Cobbler and used the new Snowflake Die to create a hopefully elegant snowflake out of the Champagne Glimmer Paper. I created this card for the current Dynamic Duos Challenge to use Cherry Cobbler and one other colour...I used Champagne as my other colour and Crumb Cake as the neutral.
Stamps: Wondrous Wishes, More Merry Messages
Inks: Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Extras: Snow Flurry Bigz Die, Big Shot, Embossing folder
The design team has created some awesome samples to get you in the Christmas Spirit, welcome to Judy May, as our Guest Designer this week!
