Colour Creations Merry Merlot

The participants in Colour Creations are all Stampin' Up! demonstrators and members of Art With Heart. Each week we share projects made with a selected colour from the Stampin' Up! range. For week 27 we are sharing Merry Merlot, a lovely colour reminiscent of the wine whose name it carries.


I've teamed a little Merry Merlot with Gray Granite and Soft Succulent for a soothing colour palette.




Masks and blending brushes are fun to play with and the effects often drive the direction of the card, I find. After experimenting with the tree trunks from the Basic Masks, leaves seemed to be the logical next step. Forever Fern is such a favourite, so I reached for it again.



Stamping, and stamping a second time without reinking gives a delightful variation of colour.

Next talented team member to share is the lovely Christine Blain

Sweet Little Stockings For JAI #582

 

This morning I was finishing off some Christmas cards, and I thought that I would seek a little inspiration. I have been making up some one-sheet-wonder cards , and they just needed "a little something" to lift them up.

The JAI #582 picture inspired me to use the stockings I have already die cut, and they can be fussy cut too from the Sweet Stockings DSP. 



The scrolling font on the blackboard reminded me of the sentiments in Merriest Moments and although this stamp is retiring at the end of the mini catalogue (3 Jan) its such a classic with holly, mistletoe and poinsettia, I probably will hold onto mine.


 
These cards will be perfect for my friends with pets I think and just a heads-up, Sweet Little Stockings stamp and Stockings Dies are available at a BIG saving if purchased separately on December 1st. 


I'm almost finished making cards now, are you? Then the massive task of writing them begins. Do you hand write a message in each?
