Paper crafting and card making

Stampin Up and Oils for the Holidays!

So with December around the corner Christmas Carols and Decorating are all around and I love sending out my cards this time of year. I was challenged by a fellow Stamper to come up with a a card using greys, black and white and this is what I came up with.

It has the stamp set Snow is Glistening Heat Embossed in the background and the Still Night Bundle in the foreground the colours are Basic Black, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate and Whisper White. The end effect is stunning!

I was also challenged by another stamping friend to come up with something from the Annual Catalog and I felt this time like using non traditional colours and this is what I came up with…

I used the Hearts Come Home Bundle and Champagne foil as well as the non traditional colours Blackberry Bliss, and Gorgeous Grape as well as sponged on Grapefruit Grove ink in the background.

Finally I did some oily decorating around here with the Young Living DIY Diffuser Garland which I added Idaho Balsam Fir Oil to and with Christmas music playing in the background I feel really ready for the holidays!
