Christmas cards in pastels

Hello there!
Somehow I couldn't get going with Christmas cards this year, but now even I start slowly to feel the spirit :)

I like to play with some non-traditional schemes and my first 2 cards came out in pastels.
I picked some lovely collections from Maja Design to play with (Vintage Frost Basics, Vintage Summer Basics) and my Big Shot was steaming hot. I prepared almost the same base in grey tones for both cards, just decided to spice it up with different colours of embellishments.
Hope you like it!

Time flies - Words & Paintery

Few weeks ago a new challenge blog was started and it gives just the kind of inspiration I really like, it's not too obvious, just giving enough to kick the creative process.
October word is Paintery.

Paitery inspired me to create watercolour effect on the plain cardstock. I stamped the roses with the different stamps, I added colours, highlights and shadows , using watercolours and white pen.
I finished of with some background stamping, splatters and white stencil.

Some details:

This is the Words& Paintery inspiration and I submit my painterly project for the October challenge:)

Vacation memories

Perhaps I'm boring saying this over and over again but November is no fun in this part of the world...
The only positive thing I can find are the long, dark , early evenings = more time spent at home = more time for crafting - hopefully :)
It's already hard to believe that only a week ago we've been wearing shorts and tank tops... I hope our charged batteries will last until the cosy December starts :)
To keep the memories alive, one of our vacation selfies from the beach.

Supplies: UHK Gallery Naval Treaty, Butterfly Effect
