For this challenge I decided to use the color scheme in the third inspiration photo. It was the color scheme that I was first drawn to from the bunch. Isn't it gorgeous?
I was so inspired that I ended up making two projects for this color scheme! The first being a wine bottle tag, perfect to gift at a Holiday get-together.
It is made with a Smokey Shadow base with the sentiment embossed in white and colored with Copic markers. A decorative flourish from the Over Under Easy stamp set is embossed with clear powder under the sentiment. I love the decorative touch it adds.
The focal point consists of a house die cut from Love Lives Here from Ocean Tides. The bottom half is stamped in Fresh Snow using BB: Text Style and the roof is stamped in Ocean Tides ink with one of the patterns from Bitty Background Blocks.
The house sits upon a glittered snowflake die cut layered on top of a trimmed Mat Stack 3 die cut, stamped with BB: Polka Dot Basics and BB: A Little Argyle. The finishing touch is the sewn-on heart border cut from Ocean Tides felt.
My second project is a nifty little gift card holder using the Seed Packet Die. The seed packet was die cut from Aqua Mist card stock and stamped with Erin's new Striped Sweater background set. What a match made in heaven! I can totally see giving a clothing store gift card in this sweet little package! The sweater stripes were stamped with Fresh Snow, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides, and Smokey Shadow inks.
And, to keep with the sweater/clothing theme, I chose the "Wishing you a Cozy Christmas" sentiment from Peaceful Pinecones to stamp onto the vellum label cut with the Happy Day die. A *heavily* glittered branch/pinecone from the Peaceful Pinecones set serves as the main focal point.
Die cuts from the Buttoned Up #1 dies serve as closures for the packet. Button-shaped cuts from coaster board and Smokey Shadow card stock were glued together, stamped with designs from the Delightful Doilies stamp set, and then heat embossed with glittery embossing powder. I really like how the buttons turned out!
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
