Well it's Friday and I can not tell you how glad I am that this week is over. Boy was this week a trial! Looking forward to my vacation and some much needed time off. I will be taking from next Wednesday till after the 1st of January off as we are all busy I will start the new year off with a ton of great new fresh projects!!!!!!!
So I thought I would try an color experiment today--here is what came out:
Sometimes a color experiment is great other, not so great! I think the pearls and bling on the inside are nice and I love this CTMH stamp! Of course I did come cuttlebugging--this spurred on a number of ideas so watch for some refined options on this sort of look in the new year.
Next week I will have some last minute gift wrap ideas for you--hope you have a great weekend and we will see you Monday!
Well we have reached the halfway point and what a week it has been! I wanted to take a different approach to Christmas cards using non-traditional colors and a tonal look. Here is what I came up with
The pattern paper is from Anna Griffin, the golden metallic paper is DCWV, ribbon SU, Stamp is CTMH as are the pearls. I cut the snowflake in the same color and sent the base through the cuttlebug using the polka dots folder to add a bit of depth.
A bit of detail ......
I love these pearls!!!! I did finish off the inside and the envelope with a little embossing!
This is also a stamp from CTMH--
Thanks for stopping in, hope your week is going well and only a few shopping days left tell Santa comes to town!
Make it a Great One
It's Monday and I am actually going to be in my office--not sure I remember what my staff looks like---LOL! I had some scraps of light bulb paper and found some strung lights in my Christmas box and thought I've got it.....and this is what I had
The tree is felt and was cut using a Paper Trey Ink die--if you have not tried them--they are a must have--esp the fillable frames--the stamp sets and the die are only $5.00 each so you get both for a 10 spot. You will want all of them so ask for them in your stocking!
Just a close up for you. The stamp is from CTMH--and you better hurry as there is a new idea book in February and all new stuff to enjoy!
The inside is simple--layered up some solid and textured cardstock and finished the sentiment on the inside.
For the envelope--I cut another tree, but only used half and inked the edges of the tree and the envelope with forest green chalk ink. I had to do some creative placement of the die to make the most of my scrap--and let me tell you it was a scrap!!!
Hope you like it. I am off to Wisconsin on Tuesday but I have a elegant tonal card to share on Wednesday! One must love Anna Griffin!
