Colour challenge Week 140

White Christmas
For our challenge this week, we have chosen to add another parameter to our colour challenge and that is that the submissions must be Christmas related cards.
The colour is 
We would like to remind everyone that submissions must adhere to the Guidelines set out above and be evidently Clean and Simple!

It's also a new month which means a new sponsor and this month we are excited that Stephanie from Clearly Besotted is our sponsor.  Clearly Besotted are Celebrating their first birthday this month too!

This is a really simple card. It uses a stamp and its co-ordinating die from Poppy Stamps with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. Simply stamped and embossed in silver.

I took these pictures one after the other with the same conditions but they turned out so differently colourwise. Again, not very good editing, as this looks an odd colour maybe I should try to take another picture, but my camera battery is on charge at the moment.
Here is a little chickadee from Technique Tuesday, stamped on a cut file from the same company. The tree is die-cut from Dee's Distinctively dies. The sentiment is from Penny Black.


Thanks for you patience while I had a couple of weeks off.. It's great to be back crafting and looking forward to seeing what you create this week!

My first card using a new set from Stampin Up and I have stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate ink.  I wrapped the card in vellum and simply added the panel on top.

For my second card I die cut out the memory box snowflake 3 times and then placed them on top of each other.  Its simply finished off with some stitching and a big gem!

I'm sorry the photography is not great...



  1. Lovely cards from the design team, its so tricky photographing white on white isnt it! Spent ages trying to get the lightness right, in the end had to edit them to up the brightness so people can see them! Thanks for the challenge.

  2. I had a problem uploading at #79 so tried it over on #80. What a wonderful challenge...love white on white.

  3. Wonderful creations!! So elegant.
