One of the things I wondered when I decided to try focusing on one bundle/stamp set at a time was, would it make participating in challenges more difficult? Every week I create a project for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. The challenge is either a color or sketch challenge. This week it is a sketch challenge.
How did it go? I found that it was a bit easier to figure out what to make. Instead of spending time looking at my stamp sets and DSP (patterned paper) and trying to decide what to use, I could just start. Lesson learned that sometimes it is good to limit my choices.
I used the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP (love the diagonal stripe), the Frosted Gingerbread bundle, and one additional die (label) from the Harvest Dies. Check out the Old Olive border, it is from the Gingerbread dies. Isn't it lovely? The center of the snowflake is one of the Wonderful Gems. This is the large Real Red gem and it has gold flecks in it. The sentiment was heat embossed using white embossing powder.
Inside I added another snowflake and a strip of DSP. Gotta dress up the inside too!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for the challenge.
