Hey Everyone

Look at me – it’s the weekend and I’m posting!  The card I’ve made is for two challenges – ColourQ & CAS(E) This Sketch – yep a clean and simple challenge!

The colours from ColourQ has me thinking Christmas.  I always like to try new combo’s for my Christmas cards – kind of unexpected but I think they work really well.  Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #322 & Pals Paper Arts #182

Hey Everyone

I’m loving the colour Smoky Slate at the moment.  The design team at Pals Paper Arts have a challenge with Smoky Slate and Elegant Eggplant in it, so I knew I had to play along.

I’m entering my card into Mojo Monday’s sketch challenge as I have used their layout for my card.  Don’t you just love this sketch?

The stamp sets I’ve used are Stampin’ Up! ones Evergreen and the cute little reindeer and sentiment are from a Hostess Stamp set called Warmth & Wonder.  I’ve almost run out of all my Elegant Eggplant DSP in my stack so I found some offcuts from a long ago retired pack called Lap of Luxury.  You’ll probably notice that I’ve used Whisper White instead of Very Vanilla? Well that’s because I didn’t study the challenge colours before I whipped up my card – sorry ’bout that!  My bow doesn’t quite look like Elegant Eggplant, but it is.  I don’t have an Elegant Eggplant re-inker so I had to run the seam binding over the ink pad with my fingers and by the time it dried, it came out with slightly pinkier tones.
