Inspire.Create.Challenges #004 Colour Callenge!

This week for the Inspire Creates Challenge we have a Colour Challenge.

Such a pretty colour combination and perfect for a wintery feel. 

I love Christmas cards in blues and pinks. They make a nice change from the traditional reds and greens of Christmas. I have used the beautiful Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper from the Autumn/Winter Stampin' Up! Catalogue. It's foiled in silver and gold, this piece with snowflakes. I sponged Soft Sky, Flirty Flamingo and Island Indigo softly across the paper. The foiling creates an emboss resist effect allowing the beautiful snowflakes to shine through.

The card base is in Island Indigo with a layer of Soft Sky under the Speciality DSP.  I have stamped the sentiment Merry and Bright from the Hearts Come Home stamp set onto a scrap of Whisper White  and cut out using an oval from the Stitched Shape dies. I layered it using Dimensionals onto a scalloped oval in Soft Sky cut with the Layering Oval dies. I have looped some of the Silver Metalic Thread between the layers using the dimensionals to secure it.  I really love the ombre ribbons. They are so beautiful and in Island Indigo just had to use it on this card.

The Snowflakes are cut out from the Seasonal Layers dies. I love these dies, they have something for every season included. I used Soft Sky and Flirty Flamingo card scraps to cut them out. I have added a few of the rhinestones for a little sparkle.

The inside sentiment is taken from the Hearts Come Home stamp set and the snowflakes from the Colourful Season stamps.

  1. A beautiful Christmas creation, Kate. Such a great idea to sponge the Year of Cheer DSP! D xox

  2. Love the subtle sponging on this card! Great idea to use the DSP too, I usually stamp for emboss resist but this is so clever! Very pretty

  3. عزل الفوم البوليستيرين المشكل بالقولبة
    يتم فيها بلمرة مادة الستايرين، وهي أحد المنتجات العضوية البترولية، يتم خلطها بالماء الساخن، وكمية من غاز الميثان، فينتج حبيبات صغيرة من البوليستيرين تكون مشبعة بالميثان، ثم يتم حقن هذه الحبيبات في القوالب المغلقة ببخار الماء، فيؤدي هذا إلى تمدد هذه الحبيبات وتجميعها والتصاقها، وبالتالي السماح بتقطيعها بالشكل المرغوب فيه، ويختلف هذا النوع عن الفوم المشكل بالبثق، وتميز بأنه أقل من فوم البثق في الكثافة والجودة.
