December Daily - Studio Calico Challenge

Pin It

It's been fun getting ideas from my pinterest board for December Daily inspiration, but, I'm having too much fun with the member challenges from Studio Calico. This week, the challenge was to use embossing powders on a layout. Well, I'm waist-high in December Daily layouts tonight. I'm up WAY WAY WAY past my bed time. But, when I discovered that there was this thing called a glue pen.... I knew that a whole new world would open up for me and my embossing powders!!!

When I saw this CUTE card on pinterest, I knew I wanted to recreate it with my own touch of course, with my embossing powders.

I cut a 6x8 piece of card stock down, and began to draw with the glue pen (Martha Stewart Brand). I did each word with different colors of powders, drew a border, and then used some rub-on stars from my December Daily kit for the finishing touch.

As you've noticed, with my December Daily pages, I like to make sure that the theme carries onto other cards used in the two-page spread, so, I created a 3x4 card with the same colors of embossing powders.

Our family ALWAYS plays games at Christmas and sometimes... it can get a little competitive. So, I knew the drama card from the December Daily kit would go perfect on this page, and I left two spots open for the naughty and nice players at the table. lol. Can't wait to slip some photos and write some GOOD stories on these pages!

  1. I just had to come here and comment too. Now that I've seen your inspiration I'm REALLY loving the idea, especially with the naught and nice players with the arrows pointing the way. Fun fun fun!


  2. I have to get myself one of those pens. I see lots of fun in my future.
