12 Days of Christmas, Day #8 and CCMC179!

Happy Thursday everyone. One more day to go before the weekend is here! I have traveled so much this week that I am ready for some needed rest. Today we have a color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary and we also have Day #8 of my 12 Days of Christmas! If you are too busy working today and tomorrow, remember that our challenges are open for a whole week, think of us this weekend and come join us.

Here are the colors for this week's challenge:

Make sure you visit to see what the other team members have come up with, I always enjoy seeing their projects just as much as you do. This is my card for the design team this week:

and a matching Goodie Box:

I used the "Day of Gratitude" stamp set and I inked and stamped a bunch of leaves-10 to be exact on the card, hand-cut and formed into a wreath and added 2 more leaves for the Goodie Box, I love how the Lucky Limeade and Poppy Parade colors just "pop" when you add the third color of Basic Gray.

Close-up of wreath:

The sentiment is stamped on a strip that I cut which is part of the "Petal Cone Die". Isn't is adorable?

Here is a list of all the Stampin' Up! products used on both projects:

  • Cardstock: Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Basic Gray, Whisper White
  • Inks: Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade
  • Tools: BigShot Machine, Petal Cone Die, Snow Burst Textured Impressions Folder,  Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Scallop Oval Punch
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, Mini Jingle Bells, Basic Gray Satin Ribbon

Have a good day and Happy Stampin'
