Hello everyone and welcome to a new month at ABC Christmas Challenges.
Can you believe we're halfway through the year already!!!
Our June Challenge is
L for Letters
M for Mistletoe
Our lovely host, Helen has a great prize for the winner
My first card is L for Letters
For this card I used the Mama Elephant Botanic Envelope die, cut from Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel card. I stamped, coloured, and die cut the berries from PTI Holiday Greens and added foliage cuts from various sets. The sentiments were embossed, and the bow was stamped, coloured with Copics, and die-cut to finish the image off.
M for Mistletoe
The second card is very simple and I just used the mistletoe stamp from the PTI Merry Kissmas stamp set. I repeatedly stamped the mistletoe to create the background panel and added little pearls for the berries.
The shaped label is from an old Spellbinders Label die set and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. I recently came across a few very old SB label die sets that had languished underneath some storage bags at the back of a cupboard and it felt like Christmas to be reunited with them again lol! I know - I lead a sad life! I'd forgotten how nicely the Spellbinder dies emboss the edges of the cut, and these dies will be getting a lot of use in the future to make up for my neglect.
I'd like to play along at
Our re-roofing work continues and at last we have some gorgeous weather so the chaps can have a good run at it. Fingers crossed the sun hangs around a while longer so the work can be completed!
Thanks for stopping by.
