Two in one ....

... I've had a very busy morning in my craft room and have made lots of cards - but you'll have to wait and see!!  I know, it's a tease;))

However, I do have a card to share with you now.  I've combined two challenges - this week's colour challenge from The Play Date Cafe - which is absolutely gorgeous, and Less Is More's one layer challenge to focus on a sentiment. 




I've made a Christmas card - keeping up with those resolutions - and used some slightly neglected stamps too!



I stamped the large word with Versamark and embossed with silver.  The letters have been painted with Twinkling H20s - which look really lovely in real life, but never seem to work in photos!!  And I added some snowflakes in a very subtle blue.  Should have stamped the word "Christmas" in London Fog!!  I'll try to do another card before I go away so see the difference, but I may not get the chance.

Stamps:  Stampendous - Christmas words (I think); Inkadinkadoo - Snowflakes a plenty
H2Os:  Guatemalan Green, Autumn Skies, Wild Blueberry
Inks:  Memento - Summer Skies

I think that's all for today.  I'm going to make a late lunch (early tea) for Kathryn and me!!  Then I'm back in my craft room to make some more cards.  Don't forget to check in tomorrow for the new CR84FN challenge - Mona has picked some fabulous colours!!  Do join us.

Deborah, I think I agree that Christmas should have been stamped in a lighter color...it's still a great card. I sure wish the twinkling h2o would show up better!

Craftilicious said...

I like the strong colour of christmas - I think it needs it to stand up to the large merry. I think its a great layout :-)

Rosemary said...

Hello Deb! I like that you chose a CHristmas theme for your card using our colors this week. It's a shame that shimmery/sparkly cards never look the same in a pic as IRL. I can imagine this one shining up a storm! THanks for playing with us at THe Cafe.

Carla said...

Sandra said...

Beautiful card...love the colours you've used on the sentiment...

Take care

Brilliant way of doing the LIM & quite stunning with the H20s. I don't know how you do it all - I blink & you've got several posts up....

Nice to see a xmas card and in such lovely colours. H2o's really do give a lovely finish and i can see why you wanted to use London Fog to ink up your christmas. Great card for both challenges.

I've done something slightly different for the PDCC challenge this week:-)

What a fabulously unique color combo for a Christmas card - it totally works! Way to think outside the box. Love the CAS design of it. Thanks so much for playing at The Play Date Cafe.

Wow! Such a great, CAS card! All that color really pops on your white base! Soooo need to work on one-layer cards more! Thanks for the inspiration! And thanks so much for playing with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!
