Colour your Christmas any colour you like…

One of the things I love about crafting is that things don’t always have to be accurate – you can colour your Christmas any colour you like – I opted for Highland Heather and Smoky Slate here, using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and my trusty Stampin Blends. Those ornaments are simply stunning aren’t they, the design and the colour! I actually used my Highland Heather and my Purple Posy Blends, because it meant I could really give it a 3D effect as the colour got light to the middle. The colour lifter really helps to fade it into white […]

Celebrate Sunflowers Card…

What better way to celebrate at this time of year than with a Celebrate Sunflowers Card.

The colour scheme is inspired by a class that I did with a super talented fellow demonstrator, Emma Goddard. Her use of Mango Melody and Basic Gray was new to me, but I thought I would give it a go here and see how it looked. Personally […]
