Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - WWC133 - Penny's All About Christmas

 Hello and welcome to another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  I'm so excited to share this project with you as I'm actually giving you a little sneak peak of two of our new Christmas stamp sets.  These two were my favourite out of the new catalogue which goes live on 1st September and, although they don't necessarily go together, they make a great match!  All will be revealed on 1st September.

I've used some gorgeous Night of Navy as my background cardstock and all the elements have been embossed with Silver Embossing powder.  I've used Whisper White cardstock and tore the edges to give the effect of a snowy background and just did a little light sponging around the edges at the top with the Night of Navy.  The houses are stamped using Crumb Cake and I've coloured in some of the windows with a touch of Daffodil Delight to represent lights.  The Trees are stamped with Pear Pizazz and the cute little smoke out of the chimenys is Basic Grey.  

I hope you visit the rest of the Design Team and leave a comment - we love to hear from you all.  I look forward to seeing all your lovely Christmas cards - its getting closer!!!! 

I'm going to add my card into the Addicted To Stamps challenge which this week is Anything Goes and Inkspirational Challenge - which is asking for a wave.  My torn paper looks like a snow wave! Is there such a thing?

Hi Fiona, love the colours you've used for your card. The Pear Pizzazz really makes those trees "pop". Great job combining the sets. I love mixing and matching. It increases the possibilities for both sets as you've shown. Love the silver heat embossing against the deep blue of the Night of Navy.

The stamps you used are some of my favourites from the new Holiday catalogue too, and I'm so happy to see you combined them. They work well together. The little village is so sweet nestled against that dark sky. Love the silver embossing to bring out those twinkly little stars and Santa's sled. Great card Fiona!
