Hello crafty friends! Welcome back for another Cards in Envy challenge! This time the challenge is a Christmas Carol challenge. That’s right, make a card based on your favorite Christmas Carol/Song.

I know, too easy, right? My song is Jingle Bells and these Doodle Pantry ants are working as hard as they can to get ready for Christmas. Through the use of computer magic, I merged the holly swag from Seasonal Swags and just duplicated it a few times to make the “tree”. I then merged the ants hanging on a bell and moved them around so it looks like they are hanging the bells in the “tree”. Then, I opened the ants on the bell and the ants carrying a bell in Silhouette Studio so I could trace, print and cut them out. I cut several and layered them to five a little dimension to the card.

Now it is time for you to join in the fun! Here is the link for you, just remember your card must be A2 (4 1/4” x 5 1/2”) size card no thicker than 1/4".

Happy crafting everyone!

Hello to all of my Great Impressions friends! Welcome back for more inspiration from the Great Impressions store!

Today is the second Saturday of December! Santa will be here before we know it! Our Great Impressions December Challenge is underway. Our theme is ANYTHING WITH A GREAT IMPRESSIONS IMAGE GOES!

(A2: Stamps: Great Impressions Stamps (Holly Winter Scene  - G352);  Cut files: Silhouette Studio)

My GI image is Holly Winter Scene – G352. I just love coloring this one! After the ink was dry, I covered the circle with Crystal Effects to give it the appearance of a little snow globe. I matted the image with a cut file from Silhouette Studio. It has Merry Christmas at the top and a loopy little border at the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a bit of inspiration from Great Impressions.

Be sure to come check out our current challenge

If you use a Great Impressions on your project, please link it in our CUSTOMER GALLERY!

One last thing, be sure to “Like” Great Impressions on FACEBOOK and I’ll see you again next Saturday!

Happy crafting everyone!


Hello my Doodle Pantry friends! Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge at Operation Write Home today!   I’m sure you will want to go over and play in the challenge, but first I have a little inspiration for you.


(A2; Digital stamp set: Doodle Pantry (All is Calm)

I loved using this digital set along with this sketch! All papers, the image and sentiment are from the set making this an easy card! I merged the pre-colored image onto the yellow paper and then printed everything. I used my Cameo to cut out the little tree embellishment and covered it with rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Merry Christmas!!!!

Now it is  your turn! Get over to Operation Write Home and show us what you create!   Here is the sketch:
