Merry Monday 75

DSCF7900

Oh, it’s Monday again….that weekend whizzed by, didn’t it?  What a beautiful day we had yesterday though!  Just gorgeous!  Speaking of gorgeous, Lesley has another gorgeous challenge inspiration for us today at the Merry Monday challenge:



If I had a dining room, I wish it would look like this!!!  I settled for a little Christmas card with Raspberry RIpple, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 75 Christmas

The base of this card is a quarter sheet of Raspberry Ripple cardstock, topped with a Very Vanilla card, and it is always a challenge to photograph these types of cards because they won’t stay shut!!!  Hopefully you can get the full effect.  I diecut my reindeer, stamped him with the Woodgrain BG stamp and daubered him with Gold Encore ink.  He’s mounted on a VV card, embossed with Northern Flurry EF and embellished with some champagne glimmer paper stars.  I added a little collar embellishment as well as some red glitter glue on his nose!

I think he’s a handsome fellow….what do you think?  I think this is just a stunning color combo for Christmas, and I can’t wait to see what you create.  I will say the submissions for last week’s challenge were incredible!  You stampers have really stepped up to the Christmas plate!  You can see all the creations, not only by the design team, but the submissions as well, at Always Playing with Paper

Fun at the park:

  5. I thought the same thing when I saw this picture. Then I thought of the boys throwing those balls and decided I'd have to just dream! LOL! I love your reindeer and sparkling folk art stars!

  6. Gorgeous card. I like the bg stamp you used on the reindeer - perfect. The gold ink around the edges gives him a soft glow and his red nose is the best way to finish him off:) Gorgeous colour combo.
    Isn't this inspiration picture stunning?

  7. Hi LeAnne. Yes, the photo inspiration is gorgeous and I wish my dining room looked like that as well. I do have a red room, but not all that gorgeous white wainscoting and beautiful accessories and dishes - wow!

    You've captured the elegance of the photo in your card. Your reindeer is gorgeous and I love the embossing and gold star accents. Beautiful! Loll xx

  12. Love, love, love your reindeer. He is the standout on this one. When I have a card that won't stay closed to photograph, I add a little temporary adhesive to hold it down until I can get the picture. It cleans right up too.
