Shining Star!

I am playing along with the Just Add Ink Challenge for the first time, and I love this color scheme…red, green, and gold for the holidays! 

I am obsessed with The Greetery’s “ Rustic Star Large” dies (and the small version, too)!

I have been spritzing and spraying with Tim Holtz/Ranger Ink’s “Distress Mica Stain” and using metallic papers with them, too. I also added a background made with The Greetery’s “Herringbone Parquet” die cut with the “Wintry Mix” snowflake dies, “BotaniCuts: Pine Bough,” berries cut with the “Winter Medley” set, and a sentiment embossed in gold from “Digit Sentiments.”

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Christmas in the City Throwdown

Hi everyone! It’s my turn to be the hostess at the Color Throwdown Challenge ! We are taking a trip to the city to see the spectacular tree-lighting! The colors are a wintery evening's blue, aqua, and gold. 

I made a wreath to match the beautiful tree…

I used Sizzix’s “Yuletide” dies by Tim Holtz with all of the bright royal blues and aquas, and a shimmering gold bow. The background is made with The Greetery’s “Twinkle Background” die, and a sentiment from “Bright & Bubbly” embossed with Hero Arts “Iridescent Gold” powder.

We can’t wait to see what you make this week! Upload your creation at the Color Throwdown blog for a chance to be a randomly-selected Guest Designer at an upcoming challenge!

Inspired by…Rustic Holiday Decor!

 There is a lovely inspiration photo at the Inspired by Challenge this week…

I was inspired by the pinecones, chalkboard, greenery, wood…

I used The Greetery’s new “BotaniCuts: Pinecones,” “BotaniCuts: Juniper,” and “Rustic Star: Small.” The sentiment is from a wonderful older set from Papertrey Ink called “Pen & Ink Christmas!” 

Thanks for stopping by! ❤️
