I'm still having fun playing with my new goodies - at the moment it's just one new stamp set (Scentsational Season) and a bunch of papers and accessories but come Saturday morning I'll be placing an order for a truck-load of new stuff lol!! Getting very excited about that lot arriving..!! Anyway, onto today's card - I combined the Dynamic Duos colours with this week's Retro Sketch...
At first these colours don't say 'Christmas' but I thought I'd give a non-traditional Christmas card a try...
I replaced Concord Crush with Elegant Eggplant as I wanted to have this card on my inspiration board for the new catty and Concord Crush will be retiring next month. The background was created by stampng a flower from Mixed Bunch repeatedly on Wisteria Wonder card using Frost White shimmer paint. The mugs (from Scentsational Season) were stamped with the two purples and die-cut with the coordinating dies. I also stamped and die-cut the steam and a gingerbread man (using Crumb Cake ink) to fit in the mugs. I added some sparkle to the mugs using the new silver Dazzling Details - love this stuff!! These were layered on a top note die-cut that I trimmed to fit the sketch design. The sentiment is from Curly Cute. Finishing touches include some white taffeta ribbon, an Elegant Eggplant button, a few rhinestones for the gingerbread 'buttons' and some faux stitching using a marker.
Thanks for stopping by!
