Creative Elements...........

How funny that the weather has changed, soooo hot outside and beautiful wild poppy's that  are growing in my garden are bouncing around in the wind, and I am about to share with you a Christmas card !!

I used the beautiful and sometimes overlooked in the catty stamp set Creative Elements to create this 10cm square card front, Whenever I make a Christmas card I seem to reach for the Crumb cake!!    I stamped the flourish from the Creative Elements set all over the main part using Soft Suede, I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and very Vanilla colour Scheme, I do love this mix.....  The sentiment is from one of my fave Christmas sets Contempo Christmas ......
I also used the Sizzix labels set as well as the Decorative label punch......  Taffetta ribbon too!

I made several of this design for an In love with stamping demo christmas club swap, I love to swap the ideas you get back are amazing there really is some very talented people out there...  Can't wait to see who was in my group and what I will get back...

The set is not a Christmas set at all but just shows you that you can take one set and do a multitude of designs with it.......
                                                                  Have a good day everyone!!
