Holiday time is here . . . Stampin' or not!

Cardmaking with Chalk Talk Bundle Part 2

I just love, love, LOVE the Stampin' Up! 2013-3015 In Colours. They are SO Gelati fresh and work so well together, or with some of the other colours in our range.

It was such a pleasure to make these four cards using the Chalk Talk bundle, starting with a similar base idea, but adding elements to each one, working with our lovely colours!

Chalk Talk Bundle Card (2)

This is Coastal Cabana, matched with a tiny touch of Bermuda Bay. It's hard to tell from the photo but the biggest layer of Coastal Cabana has been embossed with our Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder for some extra texture, and to compliment the In Colour Pattern Stacks Paper on the higher layer.

Chalk Talk Bundle Card (3)

The Strawberry Slush card has been been stepped up a little using a more decorative embossing folder - Beautifully Baroque, a bolder pattern from the In Colour Pattern Stack, and different placement of the larger Rhinestones.

Chalk Talk Bundle Card (4)

In this card, two of our In Colours - Calypso Coral and Baked Brown Sugar have been combined for a bit of extra contrast, a banner added behind, and the In Colour Boutique Details embellishment adds extra interest.

Chalk Talk Bundle Card (7)

I love Pistachio Pudding and this time I decided to turn the card to landscape instead of portrait and add a big delicious bow from our Chevron Ribbon range. Again I've switched embossing folders, and added a Boutique Detail embellishment.

I am pretty convinced that I haven't finished using these colours - not by a long shot! Can't wait to see what comes in our new Seasonal Catalogue in February that I can co-ordinate with these five lovely colours!

I created one other card for my poster, and I'll show you that now too - although you'll have to excuse the photo - the colours are so light, it was hard to get a good clear image.

Chalk Talk Bundle Card (5)

This Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana and Whisper White card is one of my favourites for all it's layers and for the fun Paper Clay flowers that give it lots of texture.

Don't you LOVE the Delicate Designs Embossing folder for the scallop border, teamed with the Doily?

I tried something new for this card which I will definitely be doing more of in 2014 - the lovely double bow with our seam binding ribbon. Seam Binding isn't the most fun thing to tie bows with - but boy does it look awesome when its done! LOL

Well, as you've seen over the last few days - I really had a ball using the Chalk Talk stamp set and framelits and our lovely colours to make a collection of varied cards.

We'll be at our kiosk at Chirnside Park shopping centre this coming Friday 13th December if you'd like to see some of the Christmas goodies we've been making.

See you soon with ink on your fingers!
