Global Stampers December Blog Hop - Colour Theme



Hello and welcome to December's Global Stampers Blog Hop.

The obvious choice for a December hop would be Christmas or anything winter related.  But, some of the design team live down under in Australia and New Zealand and of course it's summer there right now. Not a spot of snow in sight. Mind you there is none here in the UK either (thank goodness). So, as a result, we decided to make the theme this month a colour one - Blue/Grey/Silver.

These are the colours that I decided to go with.




I've had a stamp set and co-ordinating die set sitting untouched on the shelf for sometime and now I'm wondering why I haven't touched it before this. I had such fun that I ended up making three projects to share today. They do have a Christmas theme though. I have lots of other ideas and you may see some of them over the coming days.



I stamped quite a few of these trees and ended up making two cards with one on each of them. The photopolymer stamp makes it really easy to line up the two colours. Of course, you could fussy cut out each triangle but I cheated by using the dies.

The card above has a Silver Foil mat beneath the Pool Party and the little star on top of the tree is also Silver Foil.

The card below has a Silver Foil scallop oval and another little stat.


This third card has a die cut image on it. The Silver Foil Star is one piece (in fact each point has an embossed outline within it) and I simply die cut some Pool Party and Night of Navy cardstock using another die and then matched up each point in alternate colours.



I'll be sorry to see the stamp set and dies retire in January - they are on the retirement list and can be found in the Retiring Favourites Section of the End of Year Sale.

I'll leave you now to continue your hop around our blogs. If you would like to hop back to Ann's click on the button below.
