Kristina's CI #32

Wow, I can't believe it's up to number 32!!! It's pretty impressive that Kristina has been able to find so many gorgeous things to inspire us to create and this week is no different. This gorgeous Christmas display is making me wish for a beautiful tree with lots of lovely presents underneath....guess I'm just going to have to wait for that!!!I really liked this combination of colours and ended up making two cards for the challenge. The first one is, of course, a Christmas card. I didn't actually need anymore Christmas cards, so I might have to send a card to someone that I normally wouldn't....LOL! As we don't have Riding Hood Red here I went with Real Red instead, and I was mainly inspired by that gorgeous hanging ornament.
It's hard to see in the photo, but the Red BG has snowflakes stamped in Versamark, and that chunky glitter is very pretty IRL.

The next card is NOT Christmasy...but it does use one of the new stamps in the Summer mini, which I thought would look cute coloured in Red and Silver....
So there you have it. Things are still super crazy round here and I'm doing the countdown til I leave for holidays....ONE WEEK AND ONE DAY TO GO!!! Woohooo!!!!!!

Oh how gorgeous, and how good are you Kristie making two cards!!!

Kristie, I really like the second card a lot! It's an image you wouldn't normally use those colors for, but it works beautifully!
Your ornament card is really pretty too. That chunky glitter is so cool looking. I may have to get some of that!

Linda said...

These look great Kristie! :-)

Nice color combo! My fave is the second one...I love the extra brads and using that cute bike. You are clever! That image did not speak to me, until you so smartly used it on your card :)

Leonie said...

Both cards are gorgeous

I saw your ? re: Buckeyes on Leslie's blog. Perhaps you know them by another name. They are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. Even better than a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup! They are called Buckeyes in the U.S. because they resemble the buckeye nut from the state tree of Ohio.
