Christmas Baubles

So I’ve been on holiday with blue skies and sunshine, then come home to a scorching heatwave and on my to do list was this months Casually Crafting Design Team Colour Challenge blog hop.


The colours cry out for sand, ocean and sunshine, what have I made? A Christmas card!!!

The colours here are a couple of old favourites, Sahara Sand and Coastal Cabana and the new Sweet Sorbet.

I've used a new stamp set Decorated with Happiness and add a single block stamp from Painted Poppies.

I've used the Painted Poppies stamp to create three areas of colour on a square piece of white card stock. I used blending brushes to remove some excess ink as I wanted a fairly soft impression.

Next I stamped the wonderfully simplistic bauble shapes in the same colours.

I stamped some random stars around the baubles and finally added my sentiment. My stamp set was ordered in English but when I opened it I found the French version inside! Stampin' Up are replacing it for me (they are always brilliant if something goes wrong) and I get to keep the French one so Joyous Noël it is!

Although the colours aren't an exact match, I found the Festive Pearls to be close enough to add one in the centre of each of the bows.

I wonder what the other design team members have created for this challenge, not too many Christmas cards I bet! You can check them out by clicking on the links below.
