Color Throwdown - Christmas Blessings....

Another fabulous Color Throwdown - this one will get you thinking!  Some non-traditional Christmas colours are the order of the day - green, light pink, dark pink and kraft.

For my colours I used MFT Bubblegum cardstock, PTI Kraft and Vintage Cream cardstock and then Simply Chartreuse and Raspberry Fizz ink.


The stamp set is from Papertrey Ink and is called Two Feet Deep - I love the diecuts!!  I also used the Wet Paint Holiday Stamp Set and dies.

After adding the Pretty Pink Posh was perfect!  Thank you for visiting!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

The a-maz-ing Amy Tsuruta has put together a Holiday Edition Coffee Lovers Blog hop and I do love my coffee fix in the morning, so I couldn't resist linking up!  Follow the links to hop and see some fabulous inspiration!!

I used this month's SFYTT at Reverse Confetti and stamped up the Be a Barista Stamp set - a sweet latte set for all you lovers of hot concoctions!!

The circles were die cut using the Fresh 'n Fruity Confetti Cuts and I used the Double Edge Scallop Border.

The sentiment was stamped with Pure Poppy ink and is from the Seasonal Sentiments stamp set.

I used my beautiful gold thread - so shimmery - as steam - you can imagine it right?!  And those Pretty Pink Posh sequins add just the right detail…..

Thanks for visiting today for the hop!

Color Throwdown - with deepest thanks....

Good morning - I had a chance to play in this week's Color Throwdown challenge -some gorgeous retro colours AND I was on time this week yay me!  All I needed was a great sketch - and this week Freshly Made Sketches caught my eye.

I decided to ink up my new Reverse Confetti goodies - I can't get enough of this stamping company!

Here is the beautiful Color Swatch for this week..... and the sketch..

I decided not to go in the Christmas direction today......lots of time for that right? right??!!....but instead made a thank you card.

Using the Love Notes Confetti Cuts, along with the Pretty Panels Chevron  and Class Act Confetti Cuts, I cut my dies using Papertrey Ink's Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz and Hawaiian Shores cardstock.

I used the Doin' The Wave Confetti Cuts in Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf cardstock for my "water ripples".

A few swipes of Wink of Stella on the sweet little submarine and some Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins and I was on my way to the golf course!
