Although I love the traditional deep reds, greens and golds of the holidays, on this gingerbread wreath card I instead used brighter pinks, greens and purples to create a fun, kid-friendly Christmas card. To me, the vibrant colors remind me of the candy pieces that typically adorn gingerbread houses and people and really captures the “Candy Land” feeling. Yum!
It seems like we are all focused on Halloween and Christmas cards right now, but I thought it would be nice to take a moment to celebrate fall with a colorful bouquet of fall flowers using the new Blossom Time stamp set from Krista Schneider. I love how you can change the seasonal look of flower stamps just by changing their colors and I personally can’t resist all of the yellow, orange and red tones of fall.
Summer is a big time for outdoor activities here in Colorado, so I could not resist using the new Camping Out stamp set to create a Colorado-esque canoeing scene. Colorado is also a state filled with dog lovers (I am one of them), so I could not resist the adorable dog wagging ‘hello’ from the lake.
I’ve been feeling very woodland-y lately, perhaps because it is summer in Colorado and there seem to be deer and other critters everywhere. Plus, there’s nothing like a stunning natural landscape to inspire dreams! As a result, I had to make a card using the Birch Forest stamp set. I combined the stamps with some of the new patterned papers, particularly the ModaScrap Butterfly Dream paper. It seemed like the perfect mix for a card with animal friends that are here to encourage your dreams and imagination.
Since spring is upon us here in Colorado and I can hear birds singing in the trees, a brightly colored bird card seemed like a great way to celebrate. In this project, the bird is adhered to clear fishing line that can be twisted before placing the card in an envelope to create a “spinning” surprise when pulled out. Colorful and fun!
Hi There!! It’s Elena here today with a beautiful floral card. I am in love with the new flower stamp sets and just had to make a card with a bouquet on it. Maybe it’s all the cold weather lately, but I needed some flowers to cheer me up and make me think of spring so I couldn’t resist combining the stamp sets into one lovely arrangement.
Hey There! This is Elena. I am a brand new member of the Coloring Design Team, thrilled to bring you my very first post. My niece, Hannah, is turning 7 this month and she is quite an adorable character! I couldn’t wait to break out the brand new Bird-Day Party stamps and dies along with the Spiral Circle Pull Card Die, Silk Microfine Glitter and more to make a birthday card that is as fun and wacky as she can be.
