If I were asked what my favourite Christmas stamp set is this season, I would unhesitatingly reply Watercolour Winter! It's a two step stamping set, which makes it very versatile - you can stamp the outline images and stamp the 'colouring in' over the top OR you can stamp the outline images and colour in using an aquapainter, markers, pencils, crayons etc OR you can do what I've done today: use one of the 'colouring in' images as a background and stamp the corresponding outline image randomly over the top!
I masked my panel with thin strips of post it note and stamped my design using Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip inks. The berries were added with a Cherry Cobbler marker before peeling the strips away. The panel was then attached to the card base, leaving lots of lovely space, and the sentiment was stamped, punched out with the Decorative Label punch and added to the centre using dimensionals.
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Watercolour Winter, Beautiful Season (sentiment)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip classic ink, Cherry Cobbler marker
Card stock: Very Vanilla
Other: Decorative Label punch

So did I make a Christmas card using these autumnal colours? Yes! Did I come up with a design that can be made in three minutes? Yes! Am I in a heap on the floor because I've still got the lurgy? Yes! Never mind, I think my husband is going for the title of 'Husband of the Year' as he's stepped in and cooked, tidied and supplied me with lemsip and hot water bottles - well it's either that, or he's expecting a very large, expensive Christmas present this year!
EDITED TO ADD: My lurgy has turned out to be bronchitis and my poor husband has now developed an abscess on his gum so that's both of us out of action. The children are doing an excellent job of holding the fort but I think it's safe to say that I won't be here tomorrow. Hope to see you very soon though.
