Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - June 2020

I'm sad to say that this will be the last Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge for the year.  Our intrepid leader Kylie has decided to take a break from her wonderful blogs.  As always this month's theme is anything goes but with an optional twist.
You know me.  I went with the twist although I did resist using the phrase on my card and went instead with what you deck the halls with.
EbyE's Mondo Holly.  I stamped and heat embossed it on watercolor paper and colored with Altenew watercolors, adding some splatters and a sentiment from PTI.

What does the phrase conjure up for you?  We'd love to see your Christmas cards one last time.


  1. It's always sad to see a challenge end. But you're giving this one a marvelous send off. I love the lush green leaves and vibrant red berries on your holly sprig!

  2. Conjure up: to make, to make happen, to make something appear... wizardry, and spells! I just conjured up a cup of coffee - with a little wizardry, I might make something appear in my craft room today!!
    You've conjured up a gorgeous send-off for Kylie here, Bobby!

  3. Beautiful holly, Bobby! Nice vivid watercoloring!

  4. Wow...this is so beautiful Bobby! Love your gorgeous watercoloring!

  5. Hi Bobby:
    I saw your comment on the Mod Squad Challenge about watercolor stamping techniques. I'd love to know (learn) how you do yours. I didn't really understand Judy's method, and don't know how to accomplish this watercolor stamping technique. It sure looks pretty. If you have a tutorial, or you choose to share your method, I'd sure love to see it. Thanks for your help, and have a super blessed creative day.

    By the way, I'd love to have you play along with us at Word Art Wednesday when you're able. Lots of FAB prizes and always Anything Goes/Family Friendly. Blessings!!
