I shared a little bit about these yesterday as well, so check out those tips and tricks after you hop!
I have a few cards to share. The first one is actually the second card I made because I totally forgot we were supposed to showcase a couple of specific colors (Night of Navy and Pink Pirouette). Thankfully, I remembered right after I finished it. So, I'll get to that in a minute but here's my re-do.
The Ready For Christmas bundle creates such a fun little scene and it was so fun to color all the little accents. I designed this with the wreath as my main inspiration! I wanted a staircase with a wreath and it's so cute! And now who says blue and pink can't be Christmas colors? This would be perfect for a family with two boys and a girl ;-) For my staircase, I really wanted to add some texture, so instead of stamping it, I embossed kraft paper (from the Merry Little Christmas Cardstock Pack) and then cut it out and sponged ink all over it. I also VERY CAREFULLY colored some of our rhinestones pink. SU doesn't really recommend this because it can ruin the tip of your marker but I'm a rebel like that and was VERY careful! Did I mention that? :-)
For my next card, I borrowed an idea from fellow DT member, Holly (thanks girl)! She made a stunning lantern card where the lanterns looked like they were glowing and I loved it! We were sent the Color Me Happy stamp set and Color Me Happy Project Kit so I broke into it and used a couple of parts of it here. I thought a new years card with the little Chinese lanterns would be cute and quite appropriate, no? The lanterns are fun to color and watch come to life! Don't they really look like they glow? I added some of the gold tape and a fun little tassle from the kit. And don't forget about Teeny Tiny Wishes for that sentiment! I have been reaching for that set a lot lately! It's an oldie but a goodie!
And finally, here is my original card in more traditional holiday colors. Isn't this bundle just the cutest?
And there you have it! This girl who used to HATE to color and be pretty crappy at it (lol) is now an artist (said all French-like)! Order yours today and let your inner artist out!
Now, take a trip on over to the Netherlands and visit Miriam! She's sure to knock your socks off!
