ColourQ114 anything BUT a card! :)

Hi there! I have been so excited to show you this week's color combo at colourQ! When Arielle posted it she mentioned that this was her favorite color combo of the year, I have to agree! Look at this gorgeous yumminess! 

Love love LOVE this! And that darling snowman is just too sweet, I think I may have mentioned before, that I am such a snowman girl!! I just love them & if you saw my house around this time of year, you would laugh, because there are so many! ;) 

This week, we are challenging you to make anything BUT a card in the challenge colors! I decided to make a Christmas ornament:
The little button on the bottom is in the Celery color, I realized when photographing this project, that the green got a little lost, since there was such a small amount! 
I used some Spellbinders Christmas ornament dies (they are the 2011 version). I cut 2 pieces of each color, since I wanted to sandwich the string between the 2 parts & have the red part of the ornament hang freely. The Santa, the "ho ho ho" and the kraft punched piece are on both sides of the ornament. 
Here's a closeup on santa, so you can see his glittery trim hat and flocked beard:
I had a lot of fun with this project! It was really nice to make something that was not a card or a page! :) What do you think you might come up with? 
I used my "leftover" piece from the center of the frame to make this little ornament with a double sided sticker and some felt accents.
Not right for colourQ, but I'm sure if I can't find a place for it on one of my trees, I could tie it to a gift or something! Gotta love a 5 minute project! Here's the back:
Well, that is it for me today! It is a gorgeous snowy day in CO today, and it's perfect, since it's a day that I just get to stay in & craft. What could be better? :) Have a super day! 

xoxo, Noelle

DUST IT OFF!: Not a lot of old goodies on this, but using the leftovers to make a second ornament saves me from having "dust off" supplies later! :)

So pretty! Plus you are still being thrifty by making 2.

That is SOOOO cute! I love that little Santa image but I REALLY love the bell!

Anne Marie said...

Such fun ornaments! That bell is fabulous and I love all of the detail in little Santa's face. Too cute! :) How cool that you made a second ornament with the left-over ornament, too. I always seem to have little leftover punches, pieces, etc...you have inspired me to try to use them right away instead of going to the abyss of the "scrap drawer". Lol! :)

Wonderful ornaments, Noelle! Great idea to use what you have to make two. ;)
