I'm so honoured that she thought of me and of course said yes straight away. The theme for this challenge is:
CHRISTMAS with the optional twist of CAS (Clean and Simple)
Now you know I love making CAS designs, so was definitely going to make something with the optional twist:
Blue and white is one of my favourite colour combo's for Christmas cards, and now I have a few more ink pads to choose from, I could have a bit of variation with my images.
I was also dying to try out a stamping technique made famous by the forever fabulous May Park of 'Mayholic in Crafts'. She is the Queen of creating backgrounds etc with lots of small stamp images and have included a link here so you can see how she does it.
This actually started out as a one-layer card but I'm such a messy stamper I had marks all over the place, so had to cut it out. I started though by lightly drawing a triangle with pencil on the card front. I then randomly stamped the images from Uniko Studio 'Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions' in the different colours. Once I was happy with the placement, I cut the triangle out and mounted it on foam tape on another card base. I then stamped the sentiment from Uniko Studio 'Rustic Christmas' in Navy ink.
I absolutely love how this turned out and all the little images from this stamp set were perfect for the technique. Might have to make a few more of these in different colour combo's!!
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Christmas'.
You have until Friday 4th December to link your projects to the Uniko Challenge, so that gives you two weeks to make a lot more cards for your Christmas stash!! The Design Team have some amazing cards to inspire you on the blog if you need any help with ideas. Thanks again Bev for the invite and I can't wait to see the Gallery full of Christmas goodness!!!!
