FCCB #306 - Anything Goes!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #306-Anything Goes!
Create a project that features anything in the Cricut Library!

This Weeks Sponsor

Bugaboo Stamps

The prize is 4 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For my project today I'm using the adorable BugXmasTroll digital stamp from our awesome sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps! Isn't she adorable?!! I know it's early, but before you know it.... you know what will be here ;) and this year I'm going to be ready. For me, that means not rushing around to make cute Christmas cards! I really want to enjoy the making process and from past experience I know how quickly time flies once September arrives with back to school and all that jazz. So, I'm not wishing away my summer, but I do enjoy making Christmas cards - so I figured why not get started!

I started off by cutting a piece of patterned paper from a Heartfelt Creations 12x12 page and sponging some Distress Ink around the edge. Then, I layered my Cricut diecuts - a scalloped frame from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, a Christmas heart tab from the Simply Sweet cartridge and the holly berries from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.

I printed my cute Christmas troll out onto kraft cardstock and coloured her in with Jane Davenport coloured pencils. I really love the look of coloured pencils on kraft! After she was done I added some Stickles for bling on her earrings, some glittery gel pen and white gel pen accents and added Glossy Accents on top of the peppermint candies and candy cane.

Inside, I used a strip of coordinating paper and added a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp from the Crazy Sentiments stamp set, along with a few more beautiful SpiegelMom Scraps sequins.

A little Nuvo silver dots around my scalloped border and some shiny Perfect Pearls on the holly berries add just a little more glitter ;) Ok! one card down....! And thanks to my friend Theresa for all the amazing crafty Christmas card inspiration each week!
