Christmas Card set with Color Bursts


Hi there! I am thrilled to be sharing my first blog post as a Ken Oliver Creative Team member!!! It’s no secret I LOVE the color bursts. I have dubbed them the powder with power! They are so fun to work with and you are always left with unique results…. I created a very quick and easy set of Christmas cards using just four colors of the Ken Oliver Color Bursts… I know. Just four colors!!!! I paired the color burst with a fantastic sentiment set from the Ellen Hutson Essentials by Ellen line and some gold embossing… I’ve also got a video to go along with this post as well!!!! Still shots of each cards are also below… You can watch the video here or over on my youtube channel.








Have a great day!!

    Love the random gorgeous looks with the “Power Powders ”
    I esp like your first card–smoother colour wash and the sentiment stands out well.
    Thanks for experimenting for us!

  2. I love that you experiment, that is the fun of paper crafting all the ideas that you can try, but what I like most is your enthusiasm.

    First, congrats on being asked to join Ken Oliver’s creative team! Your color choices are so pretty, and I love the soft and soothing look of the first “Jingle all the Way” card.

    Hi Laurel ~ I’m so in love with the Ken Oliver products, thanks to you. The craft mat is awesome like you said, but the Color Burst inks? Absolutely outstanding with such gorgeous results. The only down side for me is the fact that when there’s one i particularly love, I can’t duplicate it exactly! LOL….such problems. Your cards are stunning, as always and I’m not a bit surprised that Ken Oliver had you join his design team. You have been an advocate of his for some time and have spread the word. Your fun, enthusiastic personality make it such a treat to watch your videos! Can’t wait to see more. Thanks for sharing.

  5. love the gold, the font and the cool bkg!! Awesome!
