Oh I had fun with this colour scheme for Christmas.

Handmade Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer, dies and Merry Christmas to All

It's a happy day today as our son is home from is African adventure. He's had an amazing time swimming with whales, lassoing buffalo, bird spotting, and seeing many of the stunning wild animals there.  It's good for Mum to have him home safe though.

Back to today and Sylvie set a fun challenge for our fortnightly Christmas Card Club today.  we've used non traditional Christmas colours.

I've gone a bit wild on the pink and purples, but I think I quite like it and it's cooled down a bit with lots of white space.

I first coloured a stitched circle with my alcohol markers, mine are Stampin' Blends and I used a cross section of shades.  I coated the circle in Wink of Stella so that it sparkles and I've added a simply stamped deer from the Stampin' Up! set Dashing Deer and I've die cut it with the coordinating Detailed Deer Dies.  I stamped the deer in Lovely Lipstick which is one of those colours that can be red or pink depending upon what you team it up with.  My die cut flowers are also Lovely Lipstick and the rhinestones are from a pack of really LUSH, did you get that LUSH, Noble Peacock rhinestones in the annual catalogue.  They are  Gorgeous Grape but you also get Old Olive, Blueberry Bushel, Melon Mambo and Pretty Peacock in the pack of 140 rhinestones, almost as good as real diamonds.  I also added some rose metallic thread on the outer edge of the die cut circle.

I used my stamp positioning tool (Stamparatus) to get the two stamps of my sentiment exactly where I wanted them.  The happy and Christmas are part of the festive set Merry Christmas to All which is perfect for creating just the sentiment you want with lots of individual word stamps and also a coordinating die set called Merry Christmas Dies.  All can be seen in my Stampin' Up! Shop.

I"m off now to look at the other lovely ladies of CC Club creations and hope you'll pop by them too.

Enjoy the remains of this weekend and best wishes for the week ahead.
