WLS December Reminder

Today is the 18th of the month so time for a reminder for our current challenge over at We Love Stamping. The challenge where you can showcase your stamps and your skill at using them. Only a week until Christmas, I hope you are all feeling that you have completed your makes and can soon relax and enjoy the occasion.

This month our theme is:

**  Anything Stamping Goes with the option of CAS**

I stamped this wreath turnabout stamp in 4 colours onto white card and then decided to cut a circle from it. I then cut a smaller circle to use to showcase the matching dies that are available with this set. To add a little definition I coloured the edge with a red metallic pen and finished off with a few small gold dots.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was heat embossed in white.

I do hope you will find time to join us this month, just make sure that hand or digital stamping is the focus of your card.

Don't forget there is always chance to be guest designer and a prize to be won. This month the prize is donated by Stix2. Why don't you head over to the challenge blog to check it out?

I hope I have inspired you to join us this month, all you have to do is follow the prompt and ensure stamping is the main focus on your card. I am also happy to say that there are some fabulous prizes prizes to be won. The challenge will close on the 29th December.

I am looking forward to seeing you in the gallery.

I will hold my hands up and say that I cased this design the other day Hilary, I really like how you showcased the stamps and then added the dimension to the focal element.

Hilary this is so very lovely! What a beautiful wreath! I don't have the C&th turnabout, but the Gina K. jigs I do own have been sorely underused - perhaps it's time to remedy that?
Merry Christmas, my friend! Looking forward to all your wonderful cards in 2022!

Bonnie said...

I love this wreath with the Fall colors and the sweet little die cut leaves in the middle! Your Christmas card came yesterday! I LOVE it! The Trees are so pretty embossed on the dark background and the inside is just as pretty! Thank you sweet friend and Merry Christmas!

Ashwini Rao said...

Wow! It looks gorgeous, Hilary!! I love that soft yellow and the leafy wreath - it really made me smile and go 'wow!' in my head! A very delightful card!

Witchcrafted Life said...

I gasped - genuinely gasped aloud - over this enchantingly lovely fall time greeting. Your colour palette is elegant and upbeat, richly autumnal and all kinds of gorgeous - just as this whole card is.

Thank you for helping us to savour fall just that little bit longer this year, sweet lady.
