Endless wishes in pink, purple and blue

The colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is to use pink, purple and blue. I chose 3 of my favourite Stampin’ Up ink colours – regal rose, rich razzleberry and marina mist to make my card …

I used the Endless Wishes stamp set by Stampin’ Up to stamp snowflakes in each of the colours across a piece of whisper white card, and then added the sentiment in black ink.

I used second generation ink for the regal rose to give me the shade of pink I wanted …

I mounted it onto a piece of rich razzleberry card and then onto a deckled edged card base. A sprinkling of rhinestones across the card added a bit of bling, and I just couldn’t resist adding dazzling diamonds to the snowflakes with a glue pen, for added Christmas sparkle …

It’s such a pretty colour combination, so whilst I had all my supplies out, I made another…

Now I can’t decide which card I like the best … how about you – which do you prefer?

We would love you to join us at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge and show us your beautiful artwork.

Enjoy your weekend.

Sizzix winter wonderland Christmas card

We have a new hostess at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog this week, with a fab new sketch to follow:

I love the Winter Wonderland specialty dsp I’d used for the last challenge, and had lots of extra bits and pieces left over from my previous project. I started playing and this is what I came up with, using up my scraps – always a good thing, so satisfying!

I played with different patterns until I was happy with how they looked together, and added a reindeer die cut in silver metallic cardstock using the Tim Holtz Alterations Winter Wonderland thinlits die set.

Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set by Stampin Up in black ink, using my stamp-a-majig for perfect placement.

Hope you like my card for this week. We’d love to see your artwork over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, so do pop by and join us.

Enjoy your weekend
