Yeah - didn't we just finish with Christmas?? What's a Christmas card doing here on my new post????
My creative stamping friend, Stephanie and her friend Lauren, run a fun blog called Jingle Belles - a monthly Christmas Card challenge blog - and the January Challenge is to use some new stuff. I used some new inks - Memento Espresso Truffle and Grape Jelly. The dark paper and berries on the wreath on my card are really a dark purple - I think my camera made them look more navy than purple :(
And I'm also joining in with the Monthly Christmas Challenges on Split Coast. The January challenge is to use non-traditional colors - I think Purple and Espresso fit that bill!! I'm going to make 4 cards each month with this challenge. So I'll have more than enough to send out come December!
Wreath for All Seasons, quite some time ago - and never got it inky so I was glad to get the opportunity to get it out and use it. They stamp beautifully!
Three goals I have for Christmas cards are to make them CAS and flat - so I can make multiples easily and don't need extra postage, and, of course, they also need to look very impressive!!
