Merry and REALLY Bright!

I'm back with my second guest post for My Favorite Things and I have a very simple, typically Lydia card to share.

It's typically me because it riffs on red and green, which I just can't do. So I chose CERISE AND SLIME. :)

Those are the actual colors of Paper Artsy Infusions I used. What's funny is - after I stamped the beautiful scripty sentiment from Handwritten Holidays and embossed it, and I chose those two infusions, I grabbed my hex chart for my Copics to find a match to color the rhinestone with. I held it up against the pink and found what I thought was the closest, grabbed the marker, and guess what the name of it was? CERISE. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! The snowflake I cut with the Let it Snowflake Dienamics.

I usually sprinkle the infusions first and then spritz them, but you can spray first and sprinkle too. I just feel like I can control where the color goes better by sprinkling first.

I keep a paper towel around too - lifting overly intense puddles of color really can give you beautiful results with infusions. They are so fun and addicting.

You could crank out a lot of really fun, bright and unique Christmas cards with this type of background in no time. Hence, giving you more time for PIE.



  1. Beautiful! You are so amazing with creating festive backgrounds. I remain in awe of you.

  2. Love love love it.. Cerise has been a long time favorite of mine.. slime... eek.. well.. maybe we could call it something else? green goo? Awesome job and I love that snowflake.. and so many of the MFT things. Great job Lydia. gail.

  3. Slime-a-rific! Love this chaos of yummy colors! You make it look and sound so easy! TFS!

  4. Beautiful, festive and unique! I am so glad to know someone else doesn't like Christmas red and green. If I have to use them I always darken them to cranberry and hunter, but my favorite for Christmas remains the colors of a snowy night - deep blues, purples, white and silver. Thanks for sharing this beauty!
