Embellish Color Challenge :: Holiday



Hey Everyone! Happy Friday to you all! Today is a great day for me...it's McArthur and I's 5th wedding anniversary and 13th anniversary together! I will do a special post on that probably Monday, so stay tuned for a mushy one! Embellish Color Challenges do not stop for our anniversary, so My Time Made Easy is graciously sponsoring this holiday themed challenge. Check it out here. The design team created lots of great holiday projects. Here are the projects I designed...

I made this house template. It's a box with a handle and perfect to give gifts during the holiday season or add to your home decor.


I added digital patterned paper to the template 'roof' and embellished it with Martha Stewart glitter. Maya Road trim decorates the roof's edge and twill tape finishes the handle off.


I used MTME's stamps to customize the box template and create a holiday house. I added a red rhinestone for the doorknob.


Here, you can see the windows. I stamped them on both sides of the house.


I made this simple card by printing digital patterned paper (so cute) and trimming it to about 4" x 5.25" and inking it up. I adhered the paper to an A2 card front. I took a scrap of dark red cardstock and stamped that background pattern with dark red ink. Then, adhere it to the digital patterned paper.


Using a Creative Cuts and More label die cut, I stamped the sleigh image on it and inked it up. I added baker's twine and added a die cut tag stamped with a sentiment. Then, I popped it off the card front center and added rhinestones.


I'm not adding detailed instructions to this post because I sort of explained everything above!

Ashley, your house is so adorable! Love how you added the mistletoe paper to the roof and glittered it up :] The trim is an adorable addition and the rhinestone handle is a perfect tough. Your card is so festive using one of my favorite papers and the snowflake paper you created with the whimsical stamps!! Great design on both ♥ Thanks for supporting MTME...you made our new products look fantastic :]
