Flurry of Wishes Melon Mambo Snowflake

Flurry of Wishes 007

This is a quick and simple card using non-traditional Christmas colors of Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay.  Love this color combo paired with black.

The snowflake was stamped and punched using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and Snow Flurry punch. The black panels overlay a 3/4" strip of alternating scrap pieces of Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. 

Easy, Easy!

Flurry of Wishes Snowflakes

Flurry of Wishes 006

It's that time of year again when I need to get onto the task of making Christmas cards. 

So, that means pretty much every card I will be creating over the next few weeks will have a Christmas theme!

Here is my first Christmas card based on this week's Nacho Average sketch challenge and featuring the stamp set Flurry of Wishes and This Christmas Specialty Designer Paper.  I love the snowflake design on this particular sheet in the collection.

Here's the sketch.

Thoughtful Branches I Love Fall 3

One more in my I Love Fall collection. 

Thoughtful Branches 018

This was a quick and simple card to create.  I simply cut out 3 leaves using the Beautiful Branches Framelit on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I then stamped the coordinating image from Thoughtful Branches onto scraps of Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze card stock.  I lined up the images with the cut outs and then secured them to the back of the Very Vanilla.  Candy Dots were added for additional interest.

The Thoughtful Branches and coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits dies are still available while supplies last!

Thoughtful Branches I Love Fall 2

Thoughtful Branches 015

Can't help myself!  I love fall colors and changing of the leaves.  I decided to continue on with my I Love Fall theme using the Beautiful Branches stamp set.  I used this week's Nacho Average Sketch challenge as my inspiration.

I stamped the background onto my Whisper White card base using Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Old Olive inks.  I then added a piece of vellum card stock to soften the look.

Thoughtful Branches I Love Fall!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. Cool, crisp nights (great sleeping weather) and warm days. I love the changing fall colors as well.

We really get to enjoy the fall colors living here in the mountains of southern Colorado!

Thoughtful Branches 016

 For this card, I used one of my all-time favorite stamp sets Thoughtful Branches.  Perfect for 4 seasons of stamping, and perfect for my mountain location.

I first stamped my background on Whisper White card stock using Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Old Olive inks.  I then covered the background with a piece of vellum card stock to soften the look. The greeting is stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink on Crushed Curry card stock and banner cut and mounted on a piece of Cajun Craze card stock.

Easy, Easy!

Thoughtful Branches Spring Tree

Thoughtful Branches 012

 

The Thoughtful Branches and coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits dies are perfect for creating 4 seasons of pretty trees!

And, they are still available while supplies last!

 

My spring tree featuring the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies is inspired by this week's Nacho Average Color Challenge: Dapper Denim, Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron.  Things have been pretty busy in my life the last few weeks, and I haven't had much time to stamp.  So, my card did not get included with the Design Team's entries this week, but I wanted to play a long a little.

I used the clear-mount block stamping technique.  I dabbed on my ink colors, then spritzed the block with water so the ink would run and pool.  I then set the block on my piece of watercolor paper for a minute or two letting the watercolor paper absorb the ink.  When I lifted the block, I had an interesting landscape background!

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Thoughtful Branches, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Dapper Denim, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron

Paper: Dapper Denim, Whisper White, watercolor

Accessories: Big Shot, Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies, clear block E, spritzer bottle with water, Dimensionals
