Happy Holidays - Joint Venture with Hampton Arts


 
Good Morning :)
 
This week we have a really special event taking place as Cheery Lynn Designs and Hampton Arts both team up to give you a week of gorgeous inspiration and fabulous prizes! 
 
 
 
Visit the blogs daily and just leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning either a fabulous $25 Cheery Lynn gift certificate or this wonderful Hampton Arts stamp and inks prize!
 
 
 
Our challenge theme this week is 'Happy Holidays' and I was lucky enough to be able to use a couple of gorgeous Hampton Art wooden stamps on my project which worked beautifully with these elegant dies. 
 
I started off with an 6 x 6 ivory blank card base and layered HOTP papers, Kraft Card and Ivory Cardstock (300gsm).  Both images were stamped with Hampton Arts Graphic 45 Decades ink pad in Dark Cashmere, and tinted along the edges.  The sentiment stamp was mounted and layered on 2 sizes of  Scalloped coved rectangle and the matching Classic coved rectangle dies and then matted onto square scalloped & classic stackers.  The musical border was edged by using the largest purple scalloped stacker and just cutting along one side to create a border.  I was really pleased with how this turned out! :) 
 
I had a lot of fun creating my own flowers for this card, and went to town with loads of fabulous Christmas dies too.  I used my favourite Lace Christmas Tree just tucked behind the main sentiment and also the Holly Lace Flourish .  The flowers are a mix of  Build a Flower, Darling Daisies and Holly Leaves
 
All dies used on this project are:
 
XL-2 - Square Scalloped Stackers - Largest size for the border edging and a medium sized full square for the sentiment mat.
 
Hampton Arts products:
 
PS0510A - Warm Wishes Collage
PS0670 - Music Note Border
Colour Box Graphic 45 Decades Ink Pad - Dark Cashmere
 
I hope you find time to join us in the challenge this week, and I look forward to seeing some gorgeous Christmas creations!  Dont forget there is fresh daily inspiration over on both the Cheery Lynn Inspiration blog and the Hampton Arts blog too.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today,
