I hope you’ve enjoyed a relaxing weekend. Here in the UK, the weather is still surprising mild. For us this is great because hubby now has two weeks off work – holiday – and is planning on tidying the garden before winter arrives! My Buy One Get One Promotion has been going very well over the weekend, and the Snowflake Showcase Promotion from Stampin’ Up! is proving to be very successful, too!
Today’s card was inspired by a card I saw made by Gina K. Obviously my products are totally different from Gina’s, as well as the techniques each of us used. I’ve used Call Me Clover and Real Red for my colour scheme, and used Marker Pens to colour the poinsettia and holly. The greeting is from Peaceful Pines Stamp Set, and was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock using Jet Black Stazon Ink. The criss cross design is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper, and was coloured by using a Dauber and our Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint!The shimmer is amazing!
I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the holly berries and the poinsettia, and the Frost White Shimmer Paint on the poinsettia berries. I used the Crushed Curry Marker Pen for the centre of the poinsettia. Inside the card I used the stamp that’s four small branches of holly leaves and berries and coloured them with Real Red and Call Me Clover Marker Pens.
Just three more days before the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Convention, and as always, I still have a lot to do! My swaps are all done, and tomorrow I will be making my team swaps. Then I’ll finish the projects for our craft day, and one more video, and that’s it! I’m set. I feel a bit panicky about getting it all done, but this is me! I’ll do it by the skin of my teeth as I always do! LOL! On that thought, that’s about it from me today, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
