Hello my crafty friends! I am so excited this week because I finally remembered to organise a project and participate in the Colour INKspiration Challenge.
This week we are combining two challenges and they will run for 3 weeks. Here are your colour choices 🙂
Your first choice is – Beach Christmas
Your Colour Palette for this swatch are Marina Mist; Sahara Sand; Whisper White; Pear Pizzaz and Soft Suede.
Your second choice is Nordic Christmas:
With colour Palette – Crumb Cake; Real Red; Basic Black; Whisper White and Silver Foil.
I would have loved to have completed a project for both colour choices for this round, but an idea popped in to my head that I had to create and alas, I only got time to complete one! But what a ‘one’ it is!
I literally took inspiration from the Christmas image above and tried to recreate it. It was just so cute, and even though it’s pretty hot here in Australia at Christmas time, I still love the idea of a beautifully decorated fireplace!
Here’s my creation for you this week – A Christmas Step Panel Card!
I used various sets this week to recreate my fireplace. I had stamp sets and framelits everywhere! Lol. But it was so much fun to do!
The Card fold is from Do Stamping with Dawn and is called a Step Panel Card – you can watch her video HERE so you can create one too.
I used the top panel fold as a ‘mantlepiece’ for displaying my items. It’s a bit hard to see, but those candles are sitting toward the front of the mantle by adhering a triangle shape behind the image so it sits upright.
My Nan always loves a special card – so I think this one will be off to her at Christmas to enjoy. She displays my ‘special’ cards all year round! Isn’t she sweet 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my project. Don’t forget to hop all the way around and see everyone’s creations, then come back and play along in our Facebook Group!
Now it’s time to hop on over to Kim’s page and see what she has created for you 🙂
Happy Crafting Everyone!
