Color Hues #77

Afternoon folks.
December already, I can't believe it and I'm nowhere near with my Christmas prep, are you?
Anyway over at Color Hues we have a new colour duo for you but as we realise, many of you have lots going on, we will be running this colour challenge for the WHOLE of December. That gives you plenty of time to get making and even time twixt Christmas and the New Year when hopefully things slow down a bit!
Here's my take, which I made awhile ago whilst playing with stencilling over embossed resist.

This card was inspired by a card I found in my Christmas inspiration box of received cards by my friend Sarah, Sazzle Dazzle
On an A5 panel of white card, I stamped a text stamp with Versamark, removing some of the ink with a cloth to get a patchy effect, then heat embossed with silver EP. Over the top of this I inked through with the Uniko Snowflake stencil with Kitsch Flamingo DI and then again in some areas with Picked Raspberry DI. 
I cut the panel into 2, 1/3 2/3rds attaching the larger panel to my white base card and adding a strip of silver glitter paper before stamping this HLS sentiment in Picked Raspberry DI and Altenew Silver Stone ink. I did make another card with the left over that'll save for another time!

So where will; this new duo take you? We love seeing the gallery light up with your ideas, and you never disappoint us with your creativity. If you need more inspiration, pop along to the blog and check out the rest of the DT and GD. You never know you could be a GD if you catch the eye.


  1. Beautiful results using the stencilling over embossed resist technique. I especially love the pretty pink snowflakes!

  2. That snazzy colour combo is really eyecatching and the distressed text looks fab. We, down here in the south, had snow yesterday!!

  3. Ooh, I love that Picked Raspberry for the bold sentiment. Your stenciling over the inked text is a lovely combination. So beautiful, Julie!

  4. This is so pretty, Julie! That Pink sentiment looks wonderful as does the pretty background. I am so inspired to make a background like this. I hope you have a wonderful December and Holiday Season.

  5. LOVE this card Julie!! The different shades of pink along with the spotty silver embossing make for a fabulous background...lovely, lovely card my friend!! Hugs. :0)

  6. Beautiful card Jules! Love pink and silver together. Great technique! xx

  7. I absolutely love the stenciled pink snowflakes over the silver embossed script; it's such a wonderful look! The sparkly strip of silver separating the sentiment below is the perfect touch of glam. Love this, Julie! Best wishes for the holidays!

  8. Sorry it's taken me so long to make the rounds! I've yet to try the stenciling over embossed resist, but I love the effect on this card as well as the card design! I'm just now getting caught up with cards and hope you are too!

  9. What a fun background idea!!!! I love the layered look.
