The Play Date Cafe

Friday, 16 December 2011


I am entering this Christmas card into the latest Colour Create Challenge (silver, white and blue).  The dove (Clarity Stamps) is stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with a sparkly blue powder.  The snowflake and frames were cut using Spellbinders dies and the sentiment was handwritten with a silver marker pen.

Red Rose

I am hoping that my red white and green birthday card is eligible for the latest
Colour Create Challenge using those 3 colours as the obvious thing to do is to
make a Christmas card, especially as the optional extra for this challenge is
a snowflake!  The lovely rose stamp is from an Elusive Images set.  I stamped it
in black and used clear embossing powder followed by watercolour paints.
The backing paper is by Joanna Sheen and the sentiment Pink Petticoat.

Play Date Cafe Challenge 109

I normally have to think long and hard when entering a colour challenge but as soon as I saw the above colour scheme on the Play Date Cafe Challenge blog I knew I had the perfect backing paper from an old oriental themed pack.    I am not sure where the lady image on the tag is from as it has been in my graphics folder on the PC for a few years.  The embellishment is also something I have had for ages, so a quick and easy card and a few elements used from a very large craft stash.  I keep looking at all the stuff I have accumulated and promise myself I will never buy any more crafty bits ever but my resolve doesn't last long.
