Jennifer has set this week's challenge to create Winter Holiday cards with a coloured base card - but NOT white, cream, red or green. I have had a great time and the cards were so easy - this time :)) I've used a mix of Stampin' Up! and Waltzingmouse Stamps for the cards - but I have done really clean and simple. So without further ado - here they are:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Frame-It; Stampin' Up! - Contempo Christmas
Embossing Powder: Cosmic Shimmer - Arctic Black Aurora
Card: Blue A6 from stash
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Frame-It; Stampin' Up! - Serene Snowflakes, Contempo Christmas
Pens: Marvy le Plume - Blue, Sapphire, Salvia Blue
Edited - I've been reading the Just Add Ink blog - and they are focussing on anxiety and depression - I've been familiar with the depression bit. Anyway, they are running a challenge called "Just add Blue", so I've decided to link my Blue Snowflake to their challenge. There is an additional, and optional, part to their challenge and that's to send the card to someone to show you care - as a RAK (random act of kindness). Now the Blue Snowflake will go out, but not until nearer Christmas. So I think I'll just have to make another card that's blue.
Card: Lilac A6 from stash
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Frame-It; Stampin' Up! - Serene Snowflakes
Inks: Versamark; Memento - Grape Jelly
Embossing Powder: Cosmic Shimmer - Tropic Violet Lustre
I was so pleased that Claire had done this lovely Frame-It set - I always had a problem drawing a neat square with felt pens and a ruler. She's made it easy-peasy!! And the bauble and snowflakes images are two of my favourite Christmas themes - they will both feature again (and often).
I was also lucky that today my order from Stampin' Up! - which included my new Contempo Christmas set - was delivered. Thanks Nicci - love these stamps.
That's all I've got time for this evening. I've got to sort out a Scout meeting for Sunday - we're joining JOTI - which is Jamboree on the Internet. It's where our Scouts can chat with Scouts all over the world via the web. Last year I spoke to people in Australia, Finland, Oman and the States - it was fab. Hopefully, we'll have a great time again.
Bye for now - see you all again tomorrow.
