Papertrey Ink October Guest Star Stamper Challenge

I am back with my Papertrey Ink October Guest Star Stamper submissions. The first one is a christmas card using a non-traditional colour combo: Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz and Spring Moss. The tree and sentiment are from the set called "Tree Trimming Trio" (try to say that three times!) I wasn`t sure if it is "clean and simple" enough to be submitted for this category!


The second card is my entry for the category "Best use of previous set". The idea of a delicate flower using the "In Bloom" set was in my head for some time, but I wasn`t sure how to realize my idea in a satisfying way. Here is what I made out of it finally:

My original idea was to create an ice-flower, so I ended up using cold colours: Aqua Mist, Spring Rain, Ocean Tides. The flower is stamped onto Vellum, the frame is from my new favourite set "Vintage Labels". The sentiment is a bit shiny because I used some Perfect Pearls on it, but it`s not showing on the photo.

Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous Wednesday!!

Hugs,
Vanessa
