I really love this colour combination and think it works so well for Christmas.  I’ve dragged out one of my favourite retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets – Watercolour Winter.  I’ve combined it with a current sentiment from Ornamental Pine.

Just Add Ink #239

Hey Everyone

We have a gorgeous colour challenge at Just Add Ink for you this week courtesy of Chantell.

Don’t you just love it when a card just comes together?  Normally I would be scared of colour challenges, especially when it consists of more than one colour and a neutral! My card was completed in record time and I have to say I really loved putting it together.  My stars are from a Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Bright & Beautiful.  I’ve stamped them in Lost Lagoon and Gold inks.  To give extra interest to the background I stamped the sentiment “Christmas Wishes” from a Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Ornamental Pine. It was great to give my previously unused Gold ink a workout on this card.

Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #323 & Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #86

Hey Everyone

I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend.  It’s Sunday evening here in Australia and we have had the most beautiful weather over the weekend.  I almost didn’t to leave the sun to head into my craft room.  The card I’m sharing today is for the sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary and the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping.

These are colours that you probably don’t expect for Christmas, but I thought I’d give them a go. I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Ornamental Pine and the sentiment is from a retired set called Tiny Tags.  Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #155

Hey Everyone

This weeks sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches is my stamping friend from NZ – Karren Johnson.  I always find so much inspiration from Karren’s blog. She’s so knowledgeable on every technique out there and is not afraid to use them.

I decided to ink up Wondrous Wreath for the first time and for some reason a black and white colour scheme came to mind.  After I put my card together I felt the wreath was a little blah so I decided to add these pinecones from Ornamental Pine. Here’s my card:
