Christmas in Pink, Blue & Purple

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.     My life has been quite busy and I haven't been able to spend much time blogging or visiting blog but showing a few designs that I created back in July.  




The background is Distress inks, snowflake stamps (hard to see in photo) and silver Frantage sprinkled and heated for texture.

Dies:  Sizzix-Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia (a favourite die!) and Holiday Words Script and McGill punch- Designer Pine (branches).


I also made a smaller card and tag using the left over background:


The reindeer die cut is by Memory box and the Holly Flourish by Cheery Lynn.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

Hi, Shirley! Beautifully lavish creations, as always - your colors melt my heart. Shirley, I really like the sprigs behind your flowers - the look like frozen twigs, or icy enhancements to your poinsettias. A lovely set of cards and tag - it must be so fun to flow with color the way you do. Hoping you are doing well, and enjoying life. love, de

All three are very pretty Shirley and a gorgeous colour combination as usual. I love the TH poinsettia and the MB deer on the second card are cute and grounded with the glittery frantage and love the way you have scattered it on the card and the tag. The holly flourish is beautiful used here too. Hope you have a good weekend. x

Life has been getting in the way for me to Shirley but starting to see the trees and woods again.

Stunning makes with lots of artistic techniques going on. Whoever gets the Christmas cards will be well chuffed.

These are tremendous, Shirley. I love these colours, the purples and turquoises. The reindeers, tag and flower card all make a lovely set.

These are marvellous, Shirley (I especially love the tag), and I love how you can manage to post in the midst of your crazy busy life. Well done, my friend!

Greta said...

You make the most gorgeous cards, Shirley! This is one of my favorites--I know, I always say that, but it's true! The Frantage is a wonderful element!

kaybee said...

The colours on these cards are just scrumptious! And those flowers are just beautiful. I've got that TH die, so I must get it out - it might encourage me to at least think about Christmas! :D
