{Mixed Media Tutorial} Quick And Easy Paper Christmas Stockings That Sparkle And Shine


Hello Everyone! Today is my day to share some Christmas and Holiday Inspiration with you for my December mixed media tutorial here on the STAMPlorations blog! Now, if you are like me, even though I am SUPER busy this time of year, I still want to be able to make something personal and pretty and  sparkly for my table or my gifts, but also I need to be able to whip it off fast and if small hands can help, even better! So I am sharing these cute and glittery and QUICK paper Christmas stockings I created from a package of stocking-shaped cut outs I found at my LDS (local dollar store).

Is it really already the last month of 2016? Geez. Welcome to the December edition of the CUTplorations challenge! On the 5th of each month you'll find the inspiration DT playing with the wonderful line of CUTplorations dies. And we hope you'll join us for some die cutting fun! How? Use our inspiration photo and die cuts (any brand). Just be sure to use at least one STAMPlorations product on your project. Cards, tags, scrapbook pages, mixed media projects ... all are welcome. Don't have any STAMPlorations products yet? You can always find a free digi here to use.

What do you take away from that sweet image? The colors - oh how I love that color combo when the gallon/quart/pint rule is followed. The snow? The clothed animal image? Ready to see how the DT was inspired?

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Vibrant floral art journal page by Amy



Good morning crafty friends, Amy here with a quick and fun Art Journal Page for you using Bloom Factory ARTplorations Stencil and Big Bloom Factory STAMPlorations stamp set. 

  

December Challenge - Theme and Sketch

Hey, all! It's a new month so we have a new theme and sketch challenge! Thanks so much to everyone who played in last month's theme and sketch challenge. We'll announce the winner and top picks next Friday, December 9, together with all of last month's challenge and blog hop winners. 

Please note that we now just have one post for the previous month's winners and we publish that post on the 9th or 10th of the following month. All winners have 10 days to claim their prize. So you don't miss anything, do follow our blog or subscribe by email :o)

We'd love for you to create and link up your projects based on this month's themesketch, or both -- you've got the whole month of November to play :o)

For December, our theme is STAMPS & COLLAGE. By definition, a collage is "a piece of art made by sticking various different materials such as photographs and pieces of paper or fabric onto a backing." For the purposes of this month's challenge, a collage can be using a combination of different things -- different types of inks, stamp sets, papers, materials, etc. If you end up with a collage card that is also clean and simple, make sure to link it up to the December CAS Card Challenge


And here's our fun sketch to get inspired by as well:


We've got prizes for the winner and top picks as voted by the design team. Also, please take a few minutes to read our challenge guidelines. We love it when you link up your projects but unfortunately we've had to disqualify some entries for the prizes in the past because those entries didn't follow the guidelines we have outlined on this page

Have a look at the STAMPlorations girls' projects inspired by this month's theme and/or sketch!
