Monday, 4 July 2016


Many of you may know I recently became a Design Team Member at Happy Little Stampers (HLS)for their Anything Goes With a Die challenges. So I was very excited to also receive a place on the HLS Christmas Challenge Design Team too!

For my first challenge for July I have created this card. The theme is GOLD.

I diecut three baubles from gold mirri card and glitter adhesive paper. The dies I used are from Crafters Companion and Marianne Creatables.

I attached the baubles and then hung them with gold sparkly ribbon.

The sentiment was heat embossed using WOW! Gold Detail Embossing powder and mounted onto mirri card.

I believe its never too early to think about Christmas crafting so pop over to the challenge for some inspiration and to enter your own creation!

Challenges I am entering are :
Ike's World - Christmas in July
Inky Chicks - Christmas in Summer

This Mirri paper is very new to me, but my goodness, it is totally gorgeous. I love that each ornament is gold but so different. I love the way you have "hung" them. So excited to be part of the HLS Christmas Challenge team. Looking forward to many more challenges with you.
