Deck the Palms for Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog #46 for September/October 2022


For challenge #46 for Sep/Oct 2022 of the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog I chose to use Santa images that I have been wanting to use for a while from La-La Land CraftsThen I have also used some dies from my La-La Land Crafts stash.

Here is my card for this month:

I have stamped the three Santas and palm tree from Deck the Palms Clear Stamp Set from the wonderful Irina at La-La Land Crafts on to X-Press It Blending card using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with the following Copics markers:

I have also used Frosted Lace Stickles on the trim and end of the hats and Glossy Accents on the glasses.

I have diecut a piece of white cardstock using the Seaside die from La-La Land Crafts and then used the following Distress Oxide inks:
  • salty ocean
  • shaded lilac
  • pickled raspberry
  • tumbled glass
  • twisted citron
  • squeezed lemonade
  • antique linen
I have also diecut the two tickets using the Ticket die from La-La Land Crafts and then used salty ocean and shaded lilac Distress Oxide inks before stamping the sentiments in Nautical Blue Memento ink.

I have also used a white and yellow spotted paper from my stash and a white card from Envelope Solutions.
