Today is Colour Create Challenge day and the amazing Sylvia has set a wonderful Christmas challenge for us.
The Colours are
RED, WHITE and GREEN
with the optional extra of SNOWFLAKES.
Well, I didn't quite get the right shade of green on my first attempt because I was so excited at the Bo-Bunny snowflake stamp and the Tim Holtz limited edition Winter distress inks landing on my doormat that I had to use the Evergreen Bough ink straight away. It's a gorgeous, icy green colour (the lighter card) but it's just not the right shade for the challenge. So my second card used the Shabby Shutters ink.
Oooooh! I love this snowflake stamp. It's probably one of the best purchases I've made this year. I did a search a couple of nights ago and here are the links I found where they still had some of the items in stock:
Bo Bunny Stamp Set - Snowfall : available at Charmed Cards and Crafts, also at That's Crafty and Oyster Stamps
Tim Holtz Limited Edition Winter Distress Inks - available at Oyster Stamps and several other stores (but I've not ordered from those stores before).
Snowflake charm from Bunny Zoes
The bling is something I picked up at the Farnborough craft show earlier this year and the papers are freebies with Card Making and Papercraft magazine. It's been AGES since I used papers that I haven't made myself!
I fancied adding a small stick of cinnamon to my card and boy, does it smell Christmassy!
I'd like to enter my cards into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp! - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl's - Winter
Craft Your Passion - 'Tis the Season
Crafty Cardmakers - Heat Embossing
Addicted to stamps - Christmas Card
