Just Add Ink #141 Colour Challenge

I've decided to start doing another weekly challenge. I thought the challenges over at Just Add Ink are great ones to do and to help 'challenge' me to create my cards

This week is a colour challenge using the colours

The colours aren't really 'Christmas' colours but I decided to do a Christmas card any way.

I used one of the ornaments from Ornament Keepsakes and added some layers of Victoria Crochet Trim and Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon.

I'm so loving that Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder at the moment too!
Thanks for Looking!
Have Fun and Happy Stampin'

Festive Friday #41 - Sketch Challenge

This weeks challenge at Nicole Derendorf's blog is a sketch challenge. Here is the sketch that she came up with us to try...

Here my interpretation of the sketch ...
I made a scrolled flower using the Scalloped Tulle Ribbon (Pg. 4 of the Holiday Catalogue if you are looking) and then accented it with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and Finishing Touches Edgelits. I really love the colour combination, perfect colours for Christmas cards.
Thanks for Looking!

Product Spotlight - Paper Doily Sizzlits L Die

When I first saw the new Annual Catalogue immediately the Paper Doily Sizzlits L Die (#125592) was put on my had to have list. I loved it instantly! It is very intricate and very pretty too.

It is to be used with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the standard cutting plates. Because the die is so intricate, you may need to pop out some of the pieces after cutting. It does fit on the front of a standard size card or you can trim it down and position it on the side of your card like I have done.
I wanted to use the die a little differently so I cut out the die, popped out the little pieces and used it as my sponging stencil.
I sponged the 'stencil' with Pool Party Ink and co-ordinated it with Summer Starfruit ink and card stock.
Contact me today to get your Paper Doily Sizzlits Die and add some doilies to your creations!
