A Dash of Christmas Shimmer
Pocket Silhouettes Part 2 & the Colour Coach

Pocket Silhouettes

Last weekend I promised to show you a gorgeous card using Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.  This stamp set has been around for a little while now, and has been very popular, and it's no wonder, because it's one of those favourite sets that you just keep coming back too, and at only $33.95 for 6 stamps, it's also very reasonably priced.

I love the versatility of the stylised floral images, and the fact that you can use just one, or all four of them on the one card, they co-ordinate so well.

On this card, I have used all four floral images, stamping the wispy dandelion image across the bottom of the Barely Banana base card in So Saffron ink, and stamping the other images in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card.  I have used both the 1 3/8" and the 1 1/4" square punches to punch out the images and the matt layer of Crumb Cake card, and mounted them onto Soft Suede, another layer of Crumb Cake, and a border in Chocolate Chip using the Scallop Trim Punch.

A simple knot of Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon gives the finishing touch - oh and notice that I have stamped the Very Vanilla envelope to match - just a simple border across the bottom left in the same wispy dandelion stamp.

I have created another version of this card in different colours that I selected using the Stampin' Up! Colour Coach, which is a very nifty new item that came out in the 2010-2011 Ideas Book and Catalogue.  I will post up some pics of it on Tuesday, along with a bit of an explanation about the Colour Coach which is a fabulous tool for selecting inspiring colour schemes.  Be sure to check back in on Tuesday!

See you then!
