Naughty and Nice

Our final colour challenge for 2013 at CAS Colours and Sketches is perfect for Christmas (How are your preparations going, by the way?).

I love these warm colours, and for me I thought of a steaming mug of Egg Nog Latte -my favourite Christmas drink. I've used 2 contrasting papers, with some homemade washi tape for the horizontal border. I stamped the mug, waited for it to dry and then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.  The steam is heat embossed in white directly onto the paper (I tried to put it onto acetate, but it went crinkly with the heat). I personally feel that I'm running out of steam now! I think a nice Christmas break is in order, to get the hundreds of jobs done that I need to do before the big day, so I don't expect to be around too much, a couple more posts may be.


  1. Pretty card, Louise! Love that homemade washi!

  2. That sentiment made me smile! Very cute!

  3. Love the bright colours and that sentiment is super!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
