Richly Blessed ~ Curtain Call Crew Guest Designer!!


curtain call 59
Greetings friends!!! Today I have some exciting news I’ve been sitting on for over 2 months!!  Stacey over at Stacey’s Stamping Stage has asked me to be her December Guest Designer!!  I have been participating in her Curtain Call Colour Challenges since last March, discovering it through my dear blog buddy, Marisa, who was a Curtain Call Designer last Spring.  It has been so much fun playing with colour so I am thrilled to be joining Stacey and her fabulous Design Team as we welcome December and the Christmas season :)  Today’s card uses my favourite poinsettia dies and a new Verve sentiment.  I didn’t want to add another panel to the card, so I stamped directly onto the distressed dots paper…it does show up in real life, so I hope it works for you :)
The Curtain Call Crew has samples to show you today, too, so make sure you stop by to see:

Christina MacLaren at Seaglass & Sentiments
Jean Martin at Stampin' Scrapper

Congrats on your Guest position this month! I was thrilled to see your name and look forward to seeing your contributions.

This is a knock-out debut, Maureen! Your poinsettias are simply gorgeous, and I love the distressed dots so much that I just keep hoarding mine!

Melisa Hunter said...

Congratulations, Maureen! What a pretty card... love the gray satin ribbon on the red. It reminds me of a festive Christmas dress. I love the sentiment stamped directly on the DP.

Have a good day, today! We're going for our first ski of the season this afternoon.

STUNNING card Maureen! I love it! So glad you're playing along with us this month! :)

Janelle said...

Beautiful card, Maureen -- and gorgeous colors. I haven't done a color challenge for ages... maybe I should try this one. I'll have to see if I can work it in. :) Just spent time going through all your blog posts that I was behind on (way too many!) and decided that I just can't comment on them all like I want to. So, suffice it to say, you've provided me with lots of inspiration for the day. Now off to the craft room to get to work!

Wanda Cullen said...

Beautiful creation, Maureen! Love your use of the gray in the ribbon! Congrats on the guest designer gig!

Vickie Z said...

Congrats!! Perfect use of the colors and your layout is fabulous. Love those poinsettas with the sponging and buttons!!
