Today I'm sharing with you a card I made while exploring a new bundle, Joy of Noel. This bundle will be available from 6 September when the September to December Mini Catalogue goes live. I love this wee bundle for the traditional Christmas vibe it gives me and the range of possibilities I see in it. For inspiration today, I used the sketch at The Paper Players, one of my favourite challenges.

If you'd like to see how I made these - or want to make your own versions - here is the video tutorial showing you how to make both cards. Also give it a watch if you've never done direct to rubber colouring using sponge daubers.

My pre-order arrived this week and today, a wet and wintery day, was play day! First equal out of the box was the Winter Meadow suite, which features the Magical Meadow bundle. While playing around, I came across the latest sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches, which I found intriguing because of the instruction that the image and sentiment HAD to stay within the rectangle. That was challenging because I always like to break the frame, so I decided to take up the gauntlet on this one.
My preorder for the September - December Mini Catalogue arrived a couple of days ago. Today was play day! First equal out of the box was the Joy of Noel bundle. This is a lovely, traditional Christmas bundle that is part of a two-set mega suite. Today, I only used the bundle and used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration.
I used one of the new embossing folders, Distressed Tile, for the card front because I love it! I also embossed the gold foil with the same folder.
Isn't that leafy background stamp gorgeous too? I stamped off Old Olive for that and used Stampin' Blends to colour the Christmas spray.
I can feel a whole lot of projects coming with this one! You can view what else I got in my pre-order here.
These new mini catalogue products will be ready for you to purchase from 6 September.

Then I blended some Pool Party around the decorated corners and added a few Bubble Bath pink flowers to the mix.
