Fab N' Funky- Use your Favourite Colours

I love Blue! All shades and so I was having fun using my color bursts on two pieces of cardstock. You just sprinkle some dust on and spritz with water. You see the colours just bust forth and you can create some great colour combos.

I cut the 2 different coloured cardstock and placed them on a basic cardstock. I stamped the images in black and heat embossed them in clear dye Embossing powder. I cut out a circle around my critters and added them to the middle of my page obviously, over the colorful tape. I added some stars and border corners to create the effect I wanted. I hope you all had a great day!


  1. A beautiful Christmas card, lovely design, cute stamps and a stunning background. Thank you for sharing at Fab'n' Funky

  2. Hi, Birgit!

    As I might have told you recently, blue has become my favorite color of late. No wonder I am awestruck by your latest BB Creation - a 50 Shades of Blue Christmas card. (Let me be the first to wish you a merry one and a happy new year 2025!) Another thing I always love is the use of animals on your cards. The bear and penguin are cute and look like they are quite content in their wintry Arctic environment.
