Make it Monday meets A Passion for Papertrey

Whilst I was in background stamping mode I had a go at the challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey this fortnight - to create with the colours below....

I used melon berry, spring moss and chocolate with Turning a New Leaf and Flower Fusion number 9 - the focal is from the 2011 Holiday Tags set and it's mounted on some melon berry felt - I know I'm in the minority but I love melon berry!

I needed a few tags so knocked up a few with the same colour scheme using the tag die and the flower fusion no. 9 die.

Here is a close up of the new formula ink in spring moss - it stamps beautifully - much better than the last spongy formula but I now have 3 spring moss ink pads!

Many thanks for stopping by this weekend - hopefully yours has been as relaxing as mine!

Make it Monday

Or in my case it's Make it Sunday!

I haven't done a Make it Monday before but I love to make a big sheet of background paper and cut it up and for this card I used my new Christmas Poinsettia stamp set.

Although the red poinsettias are the traditional kind I like the pink and white versions that are in the shops for the last few years - so I stamped mine in raspberry fizz with metallic gold centres.  The leaves are from Turning a New Leaf stamped in the new formula spring moss ink - I really love it but is anyone else having a real problem getting the lids off??

Right - it's the last episode of Downton Abbey tonight - I'm going to miss my Sunday night fix!
