Colour Create Time

Colour Create Time! For this challenge, yours truly (me) got to choose the colours! Here they are:
So whaddya think? I thought this would be a great combo for Christmas, winter, or any theme! Oh and we have a fabulous sponsor this week - Michelle's Scrapbooking!

Please head over to Michelle's and check out her awesome selection of products! I have added Michelle's to my sidebar under favorite places to shop because I suspect I may be placing an order soon ;-) And you can get details about the prize over at Colour Create.

Here are my cards:

Don't you just love this little image? This little cutie is from Pink Petticoat's Have An Ice Christmas set.

I coloured him on my computer using Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. I used a small Spellbinders die set for the flower in the corner. The bottom edge was punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. I added this very huge ribbon for a final touch.

This next card was really simple. I embossed the top half with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder.

I cut the ornaments with the Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge - I cut the base image and the shadow and then layered them. Then I decorated the ornaments with Stickles for some sparkle.
The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Winter Swirls set.

I added the white ribbon, and secured the bow with some hemp cord - I strung the ornaments on the twine before I tied the bow. Finally, I gotta add those glass beads for some sparkle.

I thought that since I did one penguin card with a digital image, I would do another penguin card using the Cricut machine. This card is very similar to one I made a few weeks ago, except for the colour scheme and instead of a penguin, I used some snowpeople.

For the background, I used some K&Company Christmas paper that had snowflakes and some sparkle on it. I ripped some white paper for the snow at the bottom. The penguin and tree are from teh Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge.

The snowflakes and sentiment are from the Winter Woodlands cartridge.

I added stickles to the sentiment and hat. I also put dots of Stickles all over the snow for a little bit of sparkle - but I don't think it is showing up in these photos.

For this last card, I decided to just make an everyday card using the new Papertrey Ink Big and Bold Wishes set.

I used Nestabilities for the ovals for the sentiment. I also stamped some swirls above the scalloped oval. I just had to use some more of that huge ribbon

Well, that's it for me. Please hop on over to the other design team member's blogs. They have some amazing creations to share with you!
