So Quick and Easy

This card literally took 5 minutes to put together, would have been quicker but I smudged my sentiment and had to re-stamp! If you have to make a heap of cards for Christmas this is the way to go, just make each a little different by swapping out the patterned paper. This one is for Sunny Challenges who wish us to use baker's twine which made me think of tying up presents for Christmas.

Project Recipe
Stamp: Special Season
Card: Crumb cake and cherry cobbler
Ink: Cherry cobbler
Accessories: white baker's twine and season of style designer stack

This is one of my favourite stamps sets, even though I don't use it that often. I have used the colours from this week's Just Add Ink challenge.

I liked the sketch from last week's challenge at Sunny Challenges I decided to use it again for this week's Just Add Ink colour challenge. These are not my favourite colours to use and I would never have thought to put them together so I was rather pleased with the way it turned out.

Card: Crumb cake, raspberry ripple, perfect plum and whisper white
Ink: Raspberry ripple and perfect plum
Accessories: Pansy punch, raspberry ripple ribbon, chevron embossing folder and beautifully baroque embossing folder, self adhesive rhinestones
