Dynamic Christmas

Good Evening All,

Hope you are enjoying your week, it is indeed the middle of the week and almost the weekend yet again. Then have to work 5 days!! Ahh seeing as this week and last week I only worked 4 days. Lucky hey. So here is what inspired. 

At Dynamic Duos the challenge this week was using these great colours:

So as you can tell from the title it was another Christmas card this week using the colours above. I really enjoyed making this card:

I got the Ornament Keepsake stamps and matching framelits out again, coloured and inked them with the desired colours. To make my background I got the Mosaic Embossing Folder and brayered it on the  mosaic's in Calypso Coral ink and placed my Crisp Cantaloupe cordination's cardstock. I then placed the baubles on the top of the background and it just was crying out for something more to make the bauble's pop. So I got some silver glimmer paper and placed it behind and it just worked, I then cut a slight wave at the bottom to reveal the embossed background. I then stamped my sentiment and punched it out. 


Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe
Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe Cordination's, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Tools: Word Window Punch, Ornament Keepsake Framelits, Brayer, Mosaic EF

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy crafting!

Christmas Colour

Some great blogs out with sketches and challenges this week, so I took part in a couple even though I just missed taking part in one. This was Freshly Made Sketches where they are celebrating there 100th Sketch. The colour combination came from Colour Q it was very hard not to add some other Christmas Colours. 

So here is the card that I came up with using these challenges:

I got the Ornament Keepsakes out seeing as they have carried over from last year's autumn/winter catalogue. I then used my markers to ink up the stamp with island indigo, pacific point & early espresso. I inked the small bauble with the pacific point marker too (as don't have the ink pad always on my list, but other things seem to be more important), I then quickly searched for my lucky limeade ink pad and stamped the other bauble. Of course ran them through the big shot with the matching framelits.

I had to then find some dsp to go with the colour combination and laid my hands on these from last year's autumn/winter catalogue (I believe). I mounted the lucky limeade dsp onto island indigo and then stuck that down on the card base as well as the early espresso dsp. I then positioned the baubles on the early espresso dsp and then stuck the top one down and then using dimensional's I position raised the small bauble and then the lucky limeade bauble I layered it up using 2 dimensional's so it would go over the small bauble nicely.

I then found my lucky limeade ruffled ribbon and position that at the bottom and then got my sentiment from teeny tiny sentiments, the 'merry Christmas' fitted nicely into the mosaic punch - but on whisper white cardstock was a bit bare, so I got a sponge dauber and covered it in lucky limeade and punched a scalloped oval out and layered on the card. I then couldn't resist adding some dazzling details as it just need some bling as well as the candy dots.

Thank's for stopping by, enjoy crafting.

Birthday Grunge Colour Q

This weeks' Colour Q inspired me to create something with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set here is the colour's that were given for what I have created:

Such a great colour combination, I love Soft Sky & Calypso Coral together they just seem to pop and make such great companions. So I had some fun with the Gorgeous Grunge set and then I had to find something to go with this stamp set. I then got the Sketched Birthday stamp set and used the cake from the set with the Happy Birthday sentiment form Itty Bitty Banners. Here is the card:
