Ink.Stamp.Share December Blog Hop - Colour Challenge...

Good afternoon and welcome to the last Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop for 2018!! 

I am sorry I have been absent from my blog for a little while.  Sadly my dear old mum passed away at the beginning of November and I must confess my crafting mojo disappeared for a while.

This month we set a colour challenge where we had to create a card/project using as many or as few colours from Berry Burst, So Saffron, Garden Green, Pacific Point and Night of Navy.  Of course I decided to use them all!!

I wanted to share a sneak peak with you from the upcoming Spring/Summer Catalogue which goes live on the 3 January.  As demonstrators we have an opportunity to get our hands on the new goodies a while in advance so we can get projects made to inspire you!

So the stamp set I have used is the brand new Needles and Threads from the Needlepoint Nook Suite.  This is a stunning stamp set and the DSP is divine although for this project I have created my own DSP.

Here is my card....


I also wanted to create a little gift box to accompany the card so I created this little beauty by randomly stamping and colouring some of the beautiful imagery from the stamps.  They really do most of the work for you.  This is a simple box which was one of the first projects I ever made on my Stampin' Up! journey.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today and I will now pass you on to Laura who I am sure has something amazing to share with you today.


Happy Stampin!
