TTIC #58: A Twilight Christmas

Greetings! It’s Tuesday, so it is time for another Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge! Here is what my darling friend Margie (who I actually have met!!!) wrote this week:

“It’s time for our last challenge for 2009… We have had a wonderful year here at Twilight Tuesday and we are looking forward to having another fun, crafty and adventurous Twilight-y year with all of you in 2010!”

This week’s challenge is “A Twilight Christmas”

Create any Twilight themed holiday project.

Comment: What is something that you are leaving behind in the old year and what are you looking forward to in the new year???

Cool! So here’s what I created:


Please click on the photos to see them bigger! Obviously, the cardinal stamp is the focus. It’s from Inkadinkado and I just love it. Cardinals are one of my fave birds… I embossed him with cherry red powder from Gel-A-Tins, inked the edges in Quicksilver and pop dotted him.


I used a clear stamp from Fancy Pants in the background and embossed it with UTEE in Interference Blue, to give it an iridescent quality.


Then I used my Nesties to cut out the grey piece, and using the same UTEE, I embossed a snowflake from PSX. This baby is going to one of my Twi-Girls of course!

And as always, our Design Team has fantastic projects to display for this week’s challenge – please go and check them out!

Plus, this week's The Pink Elephant Challenge #45 is anything Winter and/or Christmas. So I have 2 challenges in one!

I would like to wish my Baby Girl Rhiannon a Happy First Birthday! I cannot believe you’re 1!!!
