I'll Have A Pink Christmas Without You (JB12-17 & MM28)

Hi there! Hope you are both happy and surprised to see me for the 3rd day in a row! I am so happy and feeling the groove to create! However, I do have a lot of housework to finish today, so I'm going to keep my writing short and sweet! I have a few more challenges bookmarked to get on this week, so here's hoping I can make the time for a record creative week! I could use one about now! LOL


This first card is for the latest challenge at Jingle Belles! Stef created this super-cool sketch as a jumping off point! I created a dimensional ornament by die-cutting 5 green ornaments, scoring 4 along the middle and then layering them on top of each other. :)

The second card is for this week's Merry Monday challenge! I basically cased this card from LeAnne, I used some washi tape for two of my layered banners. 

Both cards ended up being non-traditional PINK holiday cards! The ornament one has a Melon Mambo card stock base. Gotta love that. :) Both have a modern twist. Both were quick, the longest part was making the dimensional ornament. :) Both used a funky decorative brad from the same pack. I hope you likey, have a fabulous day! 

xo, Noelle


supply list: papers: Crate Paper and The Paper Studio; dies: Spellbinders and LID; washi tape: Target and Martha Stewart Crafts; sentiment sticker: Stampin' Up!; brads: The Paper Studio

DUST IT OFF!: This is all years old, in fact I was thinking I need some new Christmas papers! Too bad I just ordered some new stamps! ;)
