Well it's the first Friday of a new month, so it's time for a new elemental inspiration challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers blog.
This month's photo has plenty of elements to choose from:
I took a few things from this that might not be obvious when you see my card: the teal, purple, pink colour combo, the Christmas tree, and presents.
Paper: Elle's Studio, Basic Grey
Stamps: WPlus9, Lil' Inker Designs
Dies: PTI, WPlus9, Mama Elephant, Lil' Inker Designs
Other: Promarkers, 2D foam tape
One of my favourite ever stamp and die sets for colouring in, the Holiday Hugs set from WPlus9 is just fab. It's cute and also quick to colour, just love it! I especially like using it for little wintry scenes and just the addition of a tree and some sky and snow makes it a winner for me. I also gave the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamp set from Lil' Inker Designs its first outing. I used the sequel version of this set the other day for my Elf card, the first set has lots of greetings that are more traditional but given a lovely fresh spin through the font choices and design elements. I just love this stamp in particular - it's a great size for larger format cards like this one. :)
Also an extra shout out for my most recent ink purchase - I've been needing a black dye ink pad for everyday use but also colouring as my Memento ink pad has got dry after 10 plus years of use... I know, right?
So I heard good things about Lawn Fawn inks being good for colouring but also not staining stamps (the issue I have with Hero Arts inks) and wow, such a nice ink to use:
I would just love it if they released their inks as cubes too as there as so many nice colours but I haven't the space or wallet for the full size inks. :)
Well that's it for now, remember to pop on over to the Daring Cardmakers blog to see the fab examples from the rest of the design team!
