Joy to the World...CR84FN67 39

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, November 10, 2012 @ 9:55 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! It's not only time for an all new CR84FN Color Challenge but it's time to introduce to the newest talented members of the CR84FN DT! Thanks to all who joined along with CR84FN66 ~ so many pretty projects filled the gallery! The CR84FN DT is growing and I am honored and thrilled to introduce you to the newest CR84FN talented designers: Vickie ZimmerHelen BerryJoanne BasileJody MorrowLisa Henke and Mackie Roberston. I hope you stop by their blogs and take a peek around, surely you will be inspired!

For nearly the next two weeks, we will be playing with the pretty color combo shown below. Photos used to create the graphic are courtesy of Kate Robinson Photography.
I made a Christmas card and tag set featuring the gorgeous vintage Santa image from Inspired by Christmas. I stamped the Santa images on die cut circles made using a Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 die then heat embossed using gold embossing powder.
To create the background, I simply dry embossed a piece of cardstock then applied gold paint highlighting the embossed design. I added a glitter kissed rose made using Die-namics Large Royal Rose
I stamped the Joy to the World sentiment on a die cut made using Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon Die.
I completed the inside simply by stamping and heat embossing the beautiful Vintage Santa image along with a another sentiment from Inspired by Christmas.
The coordinating die cut tag was made using a Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX die and features a rolled rose made using a Die-namics Mini Royal Roses die.
Thanks so very much for visiting! For additional inspiration, please be sure to visit the CR84FN blog to see what the other design team members have created. Have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
