Hello!!! It's time for a new Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. This month's theme is : song. There is so much you can do with this one. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Here are some fun songs to play with:
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
Santa Claus is coming to Town
Jingle Bell Rock
Deck the Halls
All I want for Christmas is You
Joy to the World
Frosty the Snowman
And here is my take:
Can you guess the Christmas song? Not too much of a mystery: Silver Bells. When I saw the challenge theme, I immediately thought of these wonderful bells from PTI's Bells and Boughs set and the song to go with it! I die cut the bells from SU Brushed Silver card stock with the matching die, then embossed with silver EP. Before adhering the bells and boughs to the top panel, I gave it a quick spritz of Ranger Brushed Pewter Distress Mica Spray to give it a little depth and shine. (This is really fun stuff!) I used Paper Smooches Wreath Builder dies for the greens, embellished with red enamel dots and a snippet of ribbon in my ribbon box. The beautiful script sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments. I love, love, love the font on this stamp.
Please head on over to the HLS Christmas Challenge Blog and see what the wonderful and talented HLS Christmas Challenge Design Team has created to inspire you. Christmas is less than 4 months away, so get going on your cards, and play with us at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. This is a fun one!
I am also linking up at Jingle Belles where this week's holiday card prompt is all about MUSIC ... you might incorporate sheet music, musical instruments, music-themed stamps ... or even make a card inspired by your favorite Christmas Carol. My card is inspired by one of my favorite Christmas songs: Silver Bells.
I used some things for this card that have been sitting in my stash, never used, patiently awaiting some love. My Paper Smooches Wreath Builder dies I am linking to Darnell Krauss's NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff ) as well. I love NBUS Challenges!!
I am also linking to a new to me challenge: Christmas Card Challenges #38 where the theme is Anything Goes.
Thans for stopping in today!
