Going Going....Gone!

Gone! That's what some of these stamps will be in 2 days time because 4 of the sets will be retired on 31st March. What a shame!! (If you like the images, I've added a link at the bottom of this post in my items used section). They are sold as Christmas Baubles sets but I hope I've shown some of the versatility of the images here.

There's less waffle and more pictures in today's post because I went a little OTT with the gorgeous colour pallet that our brilliant Julie gave us for the Colour Create Challenge theme this week. The colours are:


and the optional extra is BOWS.

The end result is that little lot of 6 cards.

These first 2 cards use images from the sets that are not being retired so you have plenty of time to pick these sets up if you like them.

The first card uses the "De Morgan Baubles Set" and I'm entering it into the Stamp n Doodle challenge = Embossing

This second uses the "Morris Baubles" set. This one is entered into Kaboodle Doodles - Circles and Squares, and Paper Creatons Ink - Things with wings

Now we move onto the sets that are being retired.
This one uses the "Klemscott Baubles"and it is entered into Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes

and the the fourth uses "Beardsley Baubles" . This is entered into Made Especially for You - Distressed Ink.

The 5th is"Mackintosh Baubles" A lovely Art Deco image. I'm entering this into The Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes

And the final one is the "Klimt Baubles". This is entered into Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes

Items Used:
Stamps from
Chocolate Baroque (look in the Thrd of a Sheet - DL section)
Promarkers: Amythyst, Purple, Aubergine, Lemon, Pastel Green, Grass, Emerald, Lush Green
Distress Inks: Sage, Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough
"Happy Birthday" Sentiments from Papertrey Ink
Papers: These were a win and I don't have the details of the pack they came from (sorry).

Hope you'll be able to join in with us at the Colour Create Challenge this time. The prize will be a 2 challenge Guest designer slot. Don't forget to peek at the beautiful creations from the rest of the design team while you are at the challenge blog.

Thanks for looking,
