Twinkle Trees for GDP053

It seems like I haven't joined in for the challenges over at Global Design Project in awhile, so I thought I would play along in hopes to be a guest designer next month!  There is an insane amount of talent out there and I swear, every time I'm ready to sit down and make something, I see some of my friend's work and think - nah, they got this! There's no point trying :) haha!

But... I do want to play along this week because the color challenge is a tricky one, and I like a good challenge to get my mind going.  I've been trying to come up with some samples with the new Twinkle Trees set and thought this combo would work!

I love this striped washi tape from the Affectionately Yours collection.  A classy look I think. :)  I added Watermelon Wonder with the "bokeh" stamps on the Night of Navy tree.

I added gold embossing powder on top of the tree too.  I should've waited for my navy to dry though.  
(I was working way late - almost midnight... Just a tip for those in a hurry like me - dry your ink!)

I added a cute little star and bow to "top" it off!

The Metallic Enamel Dots were on the special deals last week and I couldn't pass them up.  Tomorrow there will be new deals online along with the HUGE clearance rack that was just updated Tuesday.  Some things are already gone so make sure you get what you want!

If you're ordering less than $150, would you please use hostess code SM4QQ3KS and I will send you a special thank you gift!

Have a great day!


  1. You've got this Holly. This colour combo works beautifully on this gorgeous Christmas card. I love the striped accent down the sides. They guide your eye to the star of the show, that beautiful tree! Thanks for playing with us at Global Design Project and good luck for the guest designer spot!

    1. Thank you so much for the blog love Paula :)

  2. So clever to use these colours and for them to work for a Christmas tree! Thanks for joining us this week at the Global Design Project!
