Colour Create

This card is for this weeks scrummy colour combo over at Colour Create of red, brown and cream. I decided to do quite a simple card today with minimal embellishments and focus on stamping instead. I love how it turned out in the end, I hadn't even used these lovely swirly stamps, they were hidden in my ever expanding stamp draw (I saw draw but its a chest of draws hehehe). Here are the materials I used:

Sugar Nellie stamp by Leanne Ellis
core'dinations cardstock
Inkadinkadoo clear swirl stamp
doodlebug mini brads
Elusive images Thank You plate
Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper
Coloured with distress inks-walnut stain, aged mahogany, tattered rose, vintage photo, broken china, peeled paint, fired brick

Weather's been a bit rubbish today hasn't it? I do love a bank holiday though! Not done too much today, popped down to the village for the scarecrow weekend and did a bit of crafting, nice chilled day:) I did win a punch on ebay, a lacey border punch so it'll be nice to have a go with that when it comes, got it for a bargain too-even better:)


  1. Oh what a stunning card, love the image and those papers are fabulous, love it!
