Wahoooo! It’s FRIDAY. Are you excited? Plus it’s a LONG weekend.
Honestly, the only thing I can think about is sleeping in.
amazing germ ridden kids decided to share their awesome cold. Now I’m sporting a beautiful red nose and sound like I’m in a tunnel. It’s real pretty friends. Real pretty.
Nevertheless, I have something fun to share.
You know I’m all over a fun color challenge and even more so when I’ve got the sniffles.
Since my brain is a FOG it’s nice that I didn’t have to think really hard.
I decided to use a NEW stamp set called Your Presents. I’ll be honest. I wanted something solid to stamp. Easy. No cutting. Stamp and run.
Does that make sense?
This set was perfect. I stamped all the little gifts onto Whisper White cardstock and then used my Paper Trimmer to trim them down perfectly.
You can see here in the close up I popped a few of the gifts with dimensionals. I also added a little bit of the Basic Black Bakers Twine.
Tip: I’ve noticed when tying bows with Bakers Twine that if I only use one strand the bow never lays the way I would like. Try a double strand of twine and then tie your bow. It lays flat just like you want every time. No curling, or crazy turning of the twine. Give that a try.
For the greeting I added another new stamp set and AWESOME new punch- The Holly Jolly Greetings has lots of great holiday greetings that are perfect for your holiday projects. You know… comfort, peace, merry… and jolly. These are just a few. ALSO- this is a perfect set for my Project Lifer’s. The words are perfect for word art or to add to journaling cards. It’s a versatile set. LOVE IT.
The Your Presents stamp set also coordinates with the Handpicked Framelits Dies. That’s how the tiny black bow was created.
Overall, I love these colors together. It’s got that vintage/retro vibe.
The last thing I added was the Metallics Sequins (you can see the clear and white sequins on the card). Guess what… I didn’t know there was CLEAR sequins. Umm- game changer. Now I need more of that particular sequin pack because clear goes with everything. Jeesh. Just when I think I have a handle on the new catalog I’m thrown another curve ball. CRAZY.
Now it’s your turn to play along with the challenge. I hope you will. This challenge group is made up of the best designers. They create beautiful cards. You can see them all HERE. Create a card using this color challenge and leave a comment below that you did so I can go check it out.
