Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #12

It’s Blog Hop time again and this time we have a colour challenge to work with.

If you have just come from Meighan’s blog and wish to go back you can by clicking the button

or continue reading and work your way back around.

 I decided to use these colours for a Christmas card and use the ‘Christmas Gleaming’ stamp set. This is what I came up with.

I stamped and embossed the ornament and the holly is coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

Night Before Christmas

Over the weekend I decided to play with my Night Before Christmas Memories & More pack along with the coordinating Cards & Envelopes pack and create 20 Christmas cards. I kept them all fairly simple with most just using the Memories & More cards.

Here’s what I came up with.

You can make a set of cards up just using the Memories & More Card Pack & coordinating Cards & Envelopes pack but I’ve used a few extra things on some of mine. Some have an additional base layer, a few have ribbon or trim, one has some coordinating dsp and one has some Wink of Stella added over the ornaments. Even after making these 20 cards there is still some Memories & More cards left and also lots of the stickers that come in the pack. I’m thinking I might use these up on some tags at some point.

Season’s Greetings

I’m back again today to share another creation. I can’t promise a post every day but I’m trying to get back into more regular posts so hopefully there will be at least a few each week.

Today’s post is another Christmas card using a Holiday Catalogue stamp set.

There are some great Christmas stamp sets in the new Holiday Catalogue and one (of many) that I had to have was Peaceful Boughs.

The card I’m sharing with you today is a CASE of a sample in the Holiday Catalogue.

Here is what I created.

Here is the sample in the catalogue.

I’ve used another layer of cardstock instead of the patterned paper in my creation and stamped some ‘bough’ images from the stamp set randomly using Versamark Ink to create a subtle background. Althought I really like the fussy cut “Season’s” in the sentiment on the catalogue sample there is no way I would be able to fussy cut that cleanly so I left mine flat and inked up the image using Stampin’ Write Markers. I’ve also used some different colours. I used Real Read instead of Cherry Cobbler and I’ve just used Garden Green as the sole green, instead of Mint Macaron & Garden Green used in the sample.

Do you prefer one more than the other?
