One can't thumb through a paper crafts magazine these days and not notice the use of non-traditional Christmas color combinations being used within ads for stamping related products.
A prime example is the design and color combination used in creating this "snowy family" sample for Cornish Heritage Farms newly released Asela 2007 Christmas images recently. Asela's images are a favorite of mine... they lend themselves nicely to anyone's style of creating, not to mention a variety of uses.
In a hurry... how could you guess! *wink* However... not in such a hurry I could resist my newly acquired Spellbinders Nestabilities used in this card design. So far... they are incredible, HOWEVER I need a wee bit more "play time" before I can truly critique these wee gems! *LOL*
TIP - Notice the "puffy" white snow on my card? This was achieved using a Marvy Uchida Puffy Velvet Fabric Marker purchased from my lss. While I love the look... it's impractical when used on a card to be mailed or even ATC's as it doesn't ship well. Things arrive with the snow flattened and clumped together! While it can be seperated leaving a bit of residule. I'm wondering if it can be rejuvenated using an embossing gun gently over it once again... I'll let you know. *wink*

Yesterday left New Hampshire with a tease of Indian Summer... Today is suppose to boast even nicer weather. I so wish I could take advantage of the seasons last bit of Indian Summer, however... there's places to go and people to see... to stop and take it all in! I guess I'll just have to settle for rolling the car windows down today! *wink*
I look forward to our next visit. Until then...
