12 Cards of Christmas - Card 10

Much as I love the red and green of Christmas, sometimes it's nice to have a change. How about purple? Here we have Concord Crush, Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake. I've used the gorgeous Dasher stamp. I love that for only $14.95, you can add a fresh stamp to your Christmas collection.
I've made my Dashers shimmery, but the shimmer hasn't shown up very well in the pic (try clicking on the photo to see a larger version). I mixed 3 drops of Platinum Shimmer Paint with 3 drops of Concord Crush re-inker and applied it to the stamp with a dauber. I've also highlighted some areas of the Finial Press embossing folder by applying Frost White Shimmer paint with a Blender Pen (Just pick up some paint from inside the lid with your pen).
Back again with more tomorrow... Hopefully you're not sick of me yet!


  1. Love this colour scheme - gorgeous cards. Must give the shimmer paint a try with a blender pen - sounds like a good method of applying highlights.

  2. Certainly not! If you want to do another 12 days of Christmas I am sure we would all be pleased.

  3. Oooooooooooo Marelle - I'm LOVIN' this lot of cards! Really gorgeous colour combo!


  4. Love these cards, the olour scheme is gorgeous.

  5. Now these are gorgeous! And perfect for my family Xmas cards, as we are having a purple theme this year!! If only I had Dasher ... darn it! Wonder who I can borrow it from? .... thanks for some wonderful inspiration boss!

  6. My thoughts exactly! Gorgeous cards and colour scheme! LOVE these cards. You always amaze me with such elegant designs. Thankyou so much for sharing your lovely creations and inspiring so many people! Have a wonderful Christmas Marelle.
