Directly after Onstage, I left for a 10 day holiday on the Gold Coast in Queensland. It was so good to feel the sun on my face everyday and basically unwind. On my return, of course I had to play with this face……and dodge her sharp teeth! She is Eden, my 11 week old silly puppy.
My craft room was calling to me as soon as I got up this morning. It’s been over two weeks since I’ve created and I was hanging to touch my new goodies. I found the following colour challenge at Global Design Project to play along with – how perfect are these colours for Christmas?
Oh these colours are just gorgeous together – so rich and elegant. It’s hard to pick a favourite side when it comes to choices of Joyous Noel Specialty DSP. I’ve used a piece of Merry Merlot and a strip of Tranquil Tide DSPs on my card. I added a rectangle piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and an embossed circle for texture.
These holly images are from Joyous Noel Stamp Set. I’ve stamped them in Merry Merlot Ink with the centre of them being stamped off once on a scrap piece of paper. My leaves are made with my Sprig Punch and Tranquil Tide Cardstock. I scrounged through my Baker’s Twine tray and found a spool of Baker’s Twine that may or may not be Tranquil Tide – I can’t remember where it came from. GDP Team – forgive me if it’s not the correct colour!
The sentiment I’ve used is also from Joyous Noel Stamp Set. I’ve stamped it in Merry Merlot Ink directly on to Crumb Cake Cardstock. The sweet little pearls are from Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.
Here’s what I created:
