Nordic Bauble...


It's time for another ColourQ challenge and this combination is very festive...

I must admit that I was pushed for time this week and wasn't sure I could get a project made but when I saw the colours I realised that I already had a card with similar colours to these that I hadn't shared anywhere yet so that worked perfectly!

I used the Christmas Bauble single stamp combined with some Nordic Noel dsp to create this card, colouring the bauble in with markers and adding a vintage faceted button to the centre.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Christmas Bauble, Good Greetings
Ink: Memento black, Garden Green, SU markers
Paper: Nordic Noel dsp, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Real Red ribbon, rhinestones, vintage faceted button
Tools: Snowflake thinlits collection (banner)

Stippled Blossom Tag...

Hi there,

I've just remembered that I totally forgot to post my ColourQ card last night! I was called out to a last minute rehearsal and so was rushing round and it totally slipped my mind. Anyway, here are this week's colours...

The yellow/orange combo made me think of the two-step set Stippled Blossoms so that's what I started with...

I used this week's Tag You're It challenge to inspire me for this one.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Petite Pairs, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Hello Honey, Tangerine Tango, Always Artichoke
Paper: Under the Tree dsp, Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Soft Sky
Accessories: Mossy Meadow ribbon, linen thread
Tools: Scalloped tag Topper punch, Lovely Lace embossing folder

Krafty Blended Bauble...


I thought I'd better start cracking out some more Christmas cards with December fast approaching so the other day I pulled out some images that I had coloured whilst on holiday in August but had never got around to using on a card. I had lots of fun colouring the Christmas Bauble image in with my Blendabilities...

I used a couple of challenges to help me pull my card together: the layout from Freshly Made Sketches this week as well as the inspiration pic from Card Concept...

I was inspired by the kraft paper and red ribbon from the pic so I used some Under the Tree dsp with Cherry Cobbler seam binding as my starting point. I do believe this card fits the 'clean and layered' style!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Christmas Bauble, Good Greetings
Ink: Memento black, Versamark, Blendabilities
Paper: Under the Tree dsp, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Naturals White
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler seam binding, Cherry Cobbler embossing powder, gold button, linen thread
Tools: Project Life Corner rounder punch

Blended Apothecary Wreath...


It's Tuesday, which means time for another fun ColourQ challenge. Check out this week's pretty combo...

I was pondering what to do with these colours when I noticed that I had Blendabilities in Old Olive and Coastal Cabana (close enough to Cool Caribbean I hope!) so I went looking for something to colour and decided on the Apothecary Art set (and oldie but a goodie!). Here's what I ended up with...

The background is some Color Me Autumn dsp embossed with the Mosaic embossing folder and then sanded to get a distressed feel. I added some silver baker's twine and a few pearls coloured with Blendabilities to finish. I used the Deconstructed Sketch this week for my layout...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Apothecary Art, Regarding Dahlias
Ink: Early Espresso, Blendabilities (Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, Skin Tones)
Paper: Color Me Autumn dsp, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Silver Baker's Twine, Pearls
Tools: Labels framelits, Mosaic embossing folder

Make sure you check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the Royal Court this week!
