Kret8tors Blog Hop-Colour Challenge “Farms”August 19

Hello, My name is Jacqui and I am a demo from the UK and I welcome you to my blog if this is your first visit. Today I am taking part in the Kre8tors monthly blog hop with a group of talented demonstrators from around the globe. This month is a colour challenge “Farms”. You may have joined me from Jan and her lovely project so sit back, relax with a cuppa and enjoy the rest of the hop.

I love the colours used in this challenge and the picture is stunning don’t you think? I have decided to use the Free as a Bird, Winter Woods and Making Christmas Bright stamp setsSorry if it’s too early for Christmas or the fact I’ve not used anything from my Autumn/Winter catalogue preorder (which I received  last week). But this design is a stepped up version of a card I will be demoing at WI (Women’s Institute) on Wednesday.

I used a scrap of paper as a template for the snow by tearing it then brayered Highland Heather and Petal Pink ink on the Whisper White card mat. I then stamped the trees in Early Espresso ink using the fantastic Stamparatus for repeat stamping, although you can use a normal acrylic block if you wish. The greeting is from Making Christmas Bright set which is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

An oval was cut in Whisper White card with a die from Stitched Labels. The birds were stamped in Early Espresso and then water coloured with pencils as Robins. Dazzling Diamond Glitter and Wink of Stella added some sparkle.

I used Grey Granite card for the base card and then cut a mat and layer of Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso. Finally the oval was layered on the card over a twist of Silver Metallic Thread with dimensionals.

Cards to be made at WI

    • Thank you Jan. I thought I would give the WI ladies a choice of a Christmas card or an a alternative card. xx

  1. Those little birdies are too stinkin’ cute! I love that you showed the challenge color card and then an alternate with brighter colors. It really shows this set looks great with any color scheme! Thanks for hopping with us!
