Merry Christmas

These colours are fresh and crisp and are really 'Merry & Bright". The photo doesn't do it credit however.The circle and ring are from the free Hostess gift set - Riveting. The Christmas tree was punched out of Festive Favourites. Watercolour crayons and a blender pens were used to colour the Christmas tree. The Gable green card can hold a gift card, a photo or a message or an invitation. The snowflakes and rings were stamped with Versamark. Have fun with this one!!

Peaceful Wishes

Peaceful Wishes stamp set has arrived to help out the other Christmas sets that have been so used in so many ways. Sahara sand cardstock is used in the backgrounds and chalked with So Saffron. The leaves are stamped in True Thyme and Certainly Celery and then sponged with True Thyme. Marigold Morning, True Thyme and Vanilla cardstock are used in the layers with Gold organza ribbon backed on Very Vanilla. A little Crystal effects was added to the pine cones. These are colours that I won't normally put together but I like the outcome.

Just a few variations of the Snowflake Spot in Pretty in Pink and Black. This is the way to get lots of cards done without tiring of the same card. All the same materials were on the desk and just put together differently every time.
