New Distress Ink Color Wheel

This has been a long time in the making. I have slowly gotten all the Distress Ink Colors. I decided that I needed a new color wheel with the new colors. So I have made a color wheel that you can print and download for yourself as well. I have changed around some colors from the original chart. if you want to see that chart my post with the link can be found here.

Here is what my chart looks like. I scanned it in with my new scanner so it is a little bright but better then the photo i could have gotten in the rainy weather day today. Enjoy this fun color wheel.

Challenge 296 – Oh Christmas Tree

I just cant get enough of making Christmas Cards. This weeks theme at  Try Stampin on Tuesday was to do with Thanksgiving but I dont send cards for that. So I went with Christmas.

I decided this week to use a little silver on my card.

I had some trouble making this card just right. This was actually the third idea. I ended up using some new die cuts and lots of stenciling.  Once again I am using kraft cardstock. Seems to be my go to this holiday season.
