Hello and welcome to another challenge at Merry Monday!! I am happy to report that over 40 stampers made a Christmas card for our challenge last week and now they can celebrate that they have one more Christmas card in their stash for next year!! Hooray!
This week's challenge is a Theme Challenge and one that I am so excited about! I love using bird images on my Christmas cards and while traveling this Christmas, I picked up a new Lawn Fawn stamp that I had to have! It had been on my wishlist all Fall and it did not disappoint when I inked it up!!! It stamped smoothly and was such fun to colour! I stamped the owl twice, stamping it once onto a post it note and then cut it out. Then I masked the Owl so I could created two owls, snuggling together. I used the fun sketch over at Splitcoast Stampers! I used a "branch" in place of the banner!!! I love being able to mix pattern papers and this week I went to town using papers from Carta Bella, Stampin' Up and Simple Stories!!!
The design team has created such pretty and adorable creations to get you into the birding mood!!! Have fun creating your Christmas card!!
