Colour Throwdown Challenge #614

Hey Everyone

Had a chance to play along with the latest colour challenge at Colour Throwdown Challenge today. This combination is a really pretty combo so I knew I had to create something this week.

The Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Warm & Toasty, has the cutest festive images as well as fabulous sentiments. I inked up the reindeer and lightly coloured it with my Crumb Cake Blends. I then took my Highland Heather Blends and coloured the bow tie.

The trees that I’ve added to my card are cut with the Pine Wood Dies and Mossy Meadow Cardstock. The DSP I used on my card is woodsy with it’s woodgrain pattern and I felt it fitted with my tree die cuts and reindeer. Highland Heather Cardstock was added and three Champagne Basic Rhinestones finished off my card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Freshly Made Sketches #360

Hey Everyone

This is my second post tonight!  The card I’ve created this time is for the newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our cool sketch has been designed by one of my favourite card makers Amy O’Neill.  Amy’s cards are wonderfully put together and she combines THE best colours.

Yep! It’s time for another Christmas card. Think I may just get there with a couple of these ones ready to stick together.  For this card, I cut a couple of isosceles (?) triangles to create some Christmas trees.  I cut these on my Stampin’ Trimmer.  They’re made from Mossy Meadow spotted DSP.  I layered them at different heights on my Stitched Oval that was cut on my Bigshot with my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I cut two Whisper White Snowflakes with my Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and layered them on each side of my triangle trees.  I then cut some Whisper White Perfect Pines Thinlits Dies to layer under the right side of the oval to match the sketch.  There was a Pear Pizzazz sprig sitting on my desk, so I added this too just because I could.

The sentiment I’ve stamped on my Pretty Label Punch is one of my favourite Christmas sentiments.  It’s from a set called Peaceful Noel.   I added a touch of Soft Sea Foam watercolouring in the background under all the layers, but it hasn’t showed up really well.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome cards with Amy’s sketch.  Click here to take you to the challenge and take a look the cards they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping.
