Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Delicate Ornaments Thinlit Dies.


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I chose the colour palette form the TGIF Challenge this week.....modern festive colours of Pool Party, Whisper White and Real Red.

I made a couple of lovely ornaments from the Delicate Ornaments Thinlit Dies....layering Red Foil over Red Glimmer paper makes a lovely finishing element to a card. :)

I used the Pool Party piece from the Home for Christmas DSP and layered this onto some Pool Party card stock.

The background is embossed with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.

Here is our sketch this week:

Here’s the colour palette from TGIF Challenges:

  1. How gorgeous and ornate! I LOVE the red glimmer paper behind the red foil! What a beautiful yet subtle contrast! Your ornaments look so chic hanging against the embossed background as well! Beautiful!!!

  2. Love the red on red! I never would have thought to do that and the 2 textures look beautiful together.

  3. Your ornaments are fabulous! Great idea to put the foil and glimmer together - what a great focal point!

  4. OH...red foil AND red glimmer paper...STOP! Very pretty! Aren't these ornaments fun!?

  5. Oh wow! It's totally FAB! Thanks for linking up with TGIFC!

  6. Gorgeous Alison - those ornaments are really opulent and make for a luxurious card. Love the sentiment stamped on the dsp too.

  7. Ohh, love the Red Foil over the Red Glimmer! Very rich looking and makes a great looking card!
