Christmas Bauble Inspiration

Now that the holidays are over I'm starting my cards again for Christmas 2015.  Seems so far away, but that's what I thought for 2014 too! lol  I must say I love being a part of 'Tis the Season Christmas card challenge since I didn't need to sit down for extended periods of time and stamp the same thing over and over and over and over...I think you get the picture. ;)  It's so nice to create a few cards every couple of weeks and have a stack of them ready to go just before Christmas!  I hope you'll join us for our bi-weekly challenge as much as you can throughout 2015!

I have to say this was a VERY hard challenge for me!  I do NOT like blue and orange together, but I definitely like how this card turned out!  I've seen a few cards here and there with these two colors together and I actually really liked them, so I knew I could get it to work if I took the time to think about it.  I didn't quite use the same blue as the Inspiration does, but I really wanted to use my Blendabilities markers so I went with Bermuda Bay andCalypso Coral.  Make sure you head over to challenge HERE to check out all the other great cards using these colors and play along too!  We'd love to see what you create!  

I almost forgot to add that I used Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch challenge for this card.  Definitely a little different than what I posted on Tuesday, but it still fits for this card too. :)  The idea for this card popped into my mind while I was creating my other one for this challenge.  Love how that happens, don't you?!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

  1. Yes, blue and orange being opposite on the color wheel are a challenging combination, but hues your chose work. I find those cards where I am most challenge are the ones I tend to learn from. Thanks for sharing this with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. We hope you will join us again next challenge!

    1. Thanks, Kathy. I've never done these colors together before. Glad I gave it a try. :)


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
