Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #17







I'm having a go at Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #17. I really enjoy participating in these challenges when I can. Dawn has a great eye for putting colors together and I enjoy the process of using some combinations that I may not have otherwise considered. This time the colors are some of my favorites:

I decided to do something a little different and I made this little Christmas gift tag with some of my newer stamp sets; Stocking Prints, Vintage Labels and 2009 Halloween Tags from Papertrey Ink. I love the aqua and red together and I added a little cream for good measure. And, in my book, you can never go wrong with Kraft!

Thanks to everyone who left such kind comments regarding my blog changes. It's also great to read some of your "reviews" about digital cutters. I'll keep you posted on what I find out and if I actually take the plunge and bring one of these home one day!







Stamps: 2009 Halloween Tags, Vintage Labels, Stocking Prints
Ink: Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate (PTI)
Cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Kraft, Vintage Cream, Aqua Mist (PTI)
Other: Aqua Miss swiss dot ribbon (PTI), Pure Poppy vintage button (PTI), embroidery thread, foam mounting tape (3M), classic oval and label one Nestabilities dies (Spellbinders)

This is *so* cute! Really fabulous and different. Love what you're done with the cuff for the stocking. I have all of these sets (barring the 2009 Halloween Tags) so I think I'm going to have to try something similar to this very soon!!
