Sunny Challenges Week 40

May 13, 2012

Gwen has set the challenge for us this week and all we have to do is use the sketch.   For some reason this sketch just seemed perfect for Tree Trimmings.  It’s not too early to think of Christmas is it?

Anyway I embossed Whisper White card stock using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Early Expresso card stock.  I attached a piece of Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper to Early Expresso card stock and attached it to the card front.  I stamped “very merry” from the Short and Sweet stampset using Early Expresso ink onto Whisper White card stock, attached it to Early Expresso card stock and then to the card front.  I stamped the image from the Tree Trimmings stampset using Ridinghood Red ink onto Whisper White card stock three times.  I also stamped the image once onto scrap Whisper White card stock and cut it out.  I used a ruler and the Ridinghood Red Stampin’ Write Marker to add the “strings” to my baubles.  I attached the cut image over the top of the top left hand stamped image using a dimensional.  I added Basic Rhinestones to the baubles, just to add that Christmassy sparkle.  I attached the image panel to Early Expresso card stock and then to the card front using dimensionals.  It’s a bit early to make a prediction but I think this one might be one that I use for my family this year.

Ok so now you need to visit Gwen , Vicky and Tanya to see what they have made to inspire you and don’t forget to leave a comment – we all love comments.  Once you have your card, scrap page or 3d item created, then pop over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  As always I look forward to seeing your gorgeous work again this week.

Bye for now, Kris.
