Green, Black, Gold – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Happy Saturday! Time for some creative inspiration from Create with Connie and Mary and our Saturday blog hop!

Our theme this week is Green, Black and Gold.

This is a great one for me as these are some of my favorite colors!

I started with my favorite this year, the gold envelope liners from the Watercolor Christmas Project kit.

These gold liners are more like a mirrored paper as I later found out as I was photographing my finished card. (NOTE the glare across the picture!)

Using the Bethlehem Edgelits, I cut the two city scenes in the gold. I used dimensionals to get lots of height on the card front on top of the Designer Series Paper. And, even the paper is on dimensionals too! I kept the sentiment simple.

This is a little better picture (minimal glare and reflection) to demonstrate the BEAUTY of this ‘envelope liner’ paper. It’s way too pretty to line a card with it – it deserves to have the spotlight!

This is a must see hop using these colors! Check out what Debbie Henderson created going forward, and going back to Mary Brown. I know you’ll be inspired!

Watercooler Wednesday 142 – Charlotte’s All About Christmas Challenge

Hello Watercooler Wednesday fans! Time for a new weekly challenge!

Here is our newest challenge hosted by Charlotte

Yep, Christmas! Great time to get started on those ideas –now!

I absolutely loved the sketch I used yesterday and decided to use it again today for this elegant card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Night in Bethlehem, Night in Bethlehem Bundle, Eastern Palace Specialty, WWC

It’s just so pretty! And, I used non-Christmas papers and colors too! Well, I guess the gold is used quite a bit….. the stamp set is from the Holiday Mini, Night in Bethlehem, along with the coordinating dies, Bethlehem Edgelits.

This came together in a snap! Starts with a great theme and sketch!

Check out the other Design Team members at Watercooler Wednesday and play along with us!
