Don't start to panic, but did you know that it's the first weekend in December?! Ok, now I'm started to panic a bit. . .wow lots to do! Well, with it being the first Friday of the month that means it's time for another Clearly Inspired Challenge
over at the Clearly iStamp
blog! This month brings a color challenge: 3 shades of blue with a neutral black/white.
I used my Snow Flourishes
set from Clear Dollar Stamps
, which is an absolute perfect set for snowflakes and winter. You could whip out some crazy fast Christmas cards with that puppy too! This card would have taken me no time had I not added the fun glitzed up snowflake, which was still a pretty easy embellishment.
My big snowflake was made by putting a 3" x 3" square of Turquoise Gem
(from CDS) over a 3" x 3" sheet of Scor-tape
(also from CDS). I then cranked that puppy through my Cuttlebug with one of my Snowflake Nestabilities dies. I pealed off the cover to the sticky goodness that is Scor-tape, and covered my adorable snowflake in Clear Microbeads
(ALSO from CDS). CDS is offering a bunch of new Microbead colors that are new to the store this month!
Stamps: Snow Flourishes
Ink: Deep Sea (CDS), Turquoise Gem (CDS), Tropical Mist (CDS), Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Cottonball White (CDS), Turquoise Gem (CDS), Night Eclipse (CDS)
Accessories: Scor-tape sheet, Snowflakes 1 Nestabilities, black button, dark blue wire, sponge, circle punches, Tropical Mist ribbon (CDS)
So with that great of a color challenge, and knowing you (if you're like me) need to make a few more Christmas cards to send out, go grab your CDS stamps and join in the fun! Don't have any?. . .well CDS is offering up an adorable FREE digi Snowman to join in the challenge! If that isn't incentive enough there is always great prizes to be won! I can't wait to see what you come up with :D
