30 in 30 Memory Works Card Challenge: Day 5


Happy Monday, Folks! It’s a bit on the gray, chilly side here in Washington, so let’s warm it up with the Memory Works 30 in 30 Card Challenge. Janey Pumphrey has given us another fun Page Maps challenge for Day 5 over at the Memory Works blog. (She’s also giving us a little teaser for the new Memory Works Express Kit: Wonderland. It’s Express Kit Monday, so be sure to check that out, too.)

So here’s my answer to Janey’s Challenge:


I kept it simple on this one, which I think turned out to be pretty effective. Once again, I went to Teresa Collins’ Christmas Cottage collection. (I promise I will use some other collections as well, but this collection really does fit almost any style…especially mine!) 😉 The patterned papers are from the 6×6 pad. I cut two strips of candy striped paper to 3/4-inch wide x 5 1/2-inches, edged them with deco scallop edger punch by e.k.success, and layered both pieces on top of  a piece of wood grain paper that was cut at 3 x 4 1/2-inches. For the sentiment, I cut a piece of Colonial White cardstock to 2 by 3-inches and sponged the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink by Ranger Ink. I stamped “{be merry}” in Olive Exclusive Ink  using the Glamour Lower Case stamp set by Close To My Heart. The little ornaments are from the Pear & Partridge Card Workshop stamp set by close to my heart and are stamped in Bamboo, Gray Flannel, and Cranberry Exclusive inks. I cut them out and popped them up using dimensional adhesive. I drew strings for hanging the ornaments using a gold gel pen. (Simple, but effective.)

Here’s a little close-up:


Have a fantastic start to the week. And don’t forget to create some beautiful things this week!
