Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay Greetings!

This year's In Colors are very bright. So I challenged myself to use one In Color and match it up to 2 neutrals to see what I could come up with. The large grommet fits really well inside the black stamped circle. I used a 1/2" cricle punch to punch through the Whisper White and Melon Mambo cardstock (seperately though) so that a little bit of black would show through the design.


Supplies
Stamps: Circle Circus, All Holidays
Ink: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Sahara Sand
Paper: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Accessories: Large Grommets, 1/2" cricle punch, stampin dimensionals

This second card is inspired by my aunt's version that she completed at my last workshop. She changed up the design a bit and created a card I never would have come up with. I changed the In Color to Bermuda Bay instead of Melon Mambo and voila!



Supplies
Stamps: Circle Circus, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Sahara Sand
Paper: Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White
Accessories: Large Grommets, 1/2" cricle punch, stampin dimensionals

Dasher in Gold, Take 2 with Green

I have really been hung up about this Gold Dasher and what colour I should use as the base of the card. When I finally had two different greens picked (with the help of my husband too, thanks dear!) the card base still looked wrong. So with a little versamark and a snowflake stamp I think it is complete. Now I can stop daydreaming about this card and move onto another...



Supplies
Stamps: Dasher, Serene Snowflakes
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Hunter Green or Mellow Moss, Sahara Sand, Christmas Cocoa Speciality Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta ribbon, sticky strip, scallop edge punch, gold embossing powder
