Making up for time lost with an SPCC challenge card or 2!!

I'm back again for the third and final post for today with 2 cards to share! Yes you did read correctly 2 cards!! It's been a while since I have participated in an SPCC colour challenge & thought it was about time to use them to get my Mojo a flowing again!!

When I first saw this colour combo I thought of Christmas with the Red & Green but found it a challenge to incorporate the yellow & blue. I guess thats why they are called challenges Lol!

I had a lil look through all my stamping supplies and cam across this HA Christmas Tree stamp and decided it was perfect for the card I wanted to create. I stamped it onto the So Saffron CS using Old Olive ink.

The baubles are coloured with Spica markers which have a lil bit of sparkle to them - yummy!
CS: SU! Old Olive, So Saffron, BAshful Blue & Real Red
Ink: Old Olive
Stamps: Hero Arts H5079 Tree with Lights, SU! Best Yet
Accessories: Spica Markers, SU! Bashful Blue Stripped Ribbon, Fiskars Punch, Star Gem, Paper Piercer
Loving my Macro Lens too :) As I was enjoying this flow of card making I decided to make another card using this colour combo. This time I decided general & not Christmassy! I reached for my new HA set again!!

Isn't that bird cute!! His body is mounted on foam pads for dimension and again I kept the card really simple!

CS: Same as previous card
Ink: SU! Old Olive & Real Red
Stamps: HA CL338 Be Yourself
Accessories: Foam Pads, SU! Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon

Well, I'm off to the gym in a bit & watch an episode of Dexter!! Looking forward to tomorrow as meeting Kerry & Claire for coffee, mags, craft goodie hunting & a good old chat!!

Thanks for stopping by again!!
