I am sooooooooo excited this is the very first Happy Little Stamper Christmas Challenge, and I am so proud to be part of the DT.

 Each month on the 5th, there will be a new Christmas Challenge and a word for you to use on your projects.

here are  the rules for all the challenges

1. Your creation MUST be Christmas related. You MUST use the word we provide on your project.
2. Link back to your blog post and not your entire blog
3. Provide a link to HLS in your blog post
4. You may enter as many times as you like but each entry must be different
5. You may enter as many other challenges as you like
6. Have fun!

To make the card for my tree I started by putting some distress inks onto my craft mat and spritzing with some shimmer spray, before pressing some watercolour card into the inks then allowed to dry before stamping a tree using a stamp from Clearly Besotted Merry Little Christmas set, and die cutting it out. I created the frame using a square die from spellbinders.
  I went over all the lines in a glitter pen but it is not showing up in the picture which is a shame because it give the tree a lovely shimmer.
The sentiment is from a LOTV set and I have heat embossed in silver.

There rest of the DT have some wonderful creations to inspire, and you can find the link HERE


  1. This is a wonderful card Gail, love your design. Carol x

  2. Such a pretty tree Gail. Love the smooshed design with the frame which really brings the focus to the tree. Lovely linen card stock for your base and frame. Excited to be working with you on the DT at HLS Christmas Challenge! xx

  3. Hi Gail, Looking forward to being on the HLS Christmas Challenge team with you, and just became your newest follower. I'm loving this textured c/stock you've used and the way you've elevated the focal design. It's such a pretty tree, and love that you have selected the blue-green shades for this cute tree. Great way to add some sparkle with the sequins too. TFS & Hugs

  4. Gail, I love the design of this card. The tree is beautifully framed and the gorgeous card stock... lovely! I love all your added sparkle too. Welcome to the team!! xx

  5. What a gorgeous CAS design Gail and the framing is perfect! I look forward to working with you again!

  6. A beautifully framed, sweet little Christmas tree, Gail! Love your spattering of sequins! Congratulations on making this fantastic team!

  7. Hi Gail!!! I love this card! The sentiment with the little shimmering stars are a perfect addition to your tree.. I feel as though I am looking through a window! Looking forward to getting to know you and working with you on this wonderful design team HLS

  8. What a great CAS design Gail. Love the richness of the card stock and your tree is great - isn't that a fun technique?! I'm excited to be designing alongside you - we're going to have a blast! :)

  9. Great card, which simultaneously thanks to a frame, it can be a small image. A great way to swap her roles :-). Tree very exotic, simply beautiful. Sequins add motion on the card. I am glad that we are in one team.

  10. I'm finally set up with my new computer so can get caught up on commenting on my fellow HLS Chrrystmas DT's cards. I love the way you've framed the Christmas tree and scattered the sequins.
