Video : Non-traditional Christmas colours – Colour with ‘U’!

Love using some non-traditional colours for a christmas card and these little Penny Black cats looked so cute holding their string of lights that I thought I would combine them with some cheery striped paper.  I decided to film as I coloured so you could watch.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

I can’t wait for my fine tip to arrive for my Glossy accents, the bottle is getting empty and I’m fighting with it so much more, and use it less often because of that, but today it was worth the fight, those lights ‘needed’ to be ‘glossed’ up!  I’ll be back again real soon, Hugs


ps got the fine tip now and loving it!!!

    Have a great Christmas!
    greetings Holly.

    1. Thanks so much Jason, I imagine that like you, this is my passion and I enjoy this wonderful community of ours. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and comment especially at this busy time of year. Have a merry holiday season, Hugs Therese

  2. great card Therese, love the non traditional colours and those cats. Can’t wait to hear what you think of the tape you used to secure the fun foam, especially if it’s available here in Australia. Have you ever used the plastic tag piece from the tags on clothes that you purchase. I have been using one now for over a year pushed into the tip of my Glossy Accents and don’t use a lid. It comes out easy as each time even when I forget to tap the bottle on the bench top first to burp it. I get to use my Glossy Accents till all used up and it flows perfectly all the time. Every now and then I might get a bit of build up of glue on the strip but find it easy enough to remove the build up with a pinch motion pulling down the strip with my nails (not sure that’s clear). Honestly works perfectly, have never had any hassle or spillage if the bottle falls over.
    PS got this amazing card in the mail yesterday, admired by one and all.

    1. I’ve seen this technique and heard that it works, but I did manage buy the tip from SB (when it was in stock) and am loving it. I am a little clumsy and would worry about tipping it over, I don’t imagine it would be very easy to clean up lol. Hugs x

  3. Your non-traditional colours are perfection, Therese, as are these adorable cats! They do make just tips to screw on to the bottles now. I’m going to get some when the cash arrives…LOL. God bless you and yours this Christmas Season and a Wonderful and Prosperous New Year!

    1. Hi Sharon, I finally have one of the ‘fine tip’ applicators, they have been a little elusive in Australia lol. Hope your Christmas is lovely, big Hugs your way, Therese x

  4. So cute, Therese! I love how these kitty cats create movement on this card, and the diagonal stripes are fabulous! Loving the non-traditional color combo, too! Fun card!

  5. Just love the design of this fun card with the large expanse of stripy patterned paper – looks fab!!

  6. These two are the cutest and love all those coloured stripes, remind me of fruit coloured candy canes that we still have lying around the house (along with lollie and chocolate wrappers……).

  7. I love this card as it’s simple yet stylish and the colours are so refreshing for a Christmas card. I must say I have learned the more simple the card the more your colouring is brought to light and Therese’s is fantastic. More cats please!
