Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge 302: Snow is Glistening

Good morning!  I'm playing along with another color challenge today, this time the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge and I have to say, I may have picked the wrong week to showcase and mainly holiday themed stamp set, as these colors are definitely not screaming Christmas but I decided to work with it and see what I could come up with (that's how you grow right?)

For this card I started with Sahara Sand cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Joyous Noel Speciality Designer Series Paper and matted with Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper (the Copper piece which mimics the Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry colors from the color sketch).

For the main image I stamped the large snowflake tree from the Snow is Glistening stamp set in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock and then heat embossed it with the Heat Tool and Whisper White Embossing Powder.  Next I took sponge daubers and layered the Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry colors on the tree (kind of reminds me of lights on the Christmas tree) and then trimmed it down.  To top off the tree I cut a small bow using the same glimmer paper and the Big Shot and Alpine Thinlits dies.

The greeting is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Merry Merlot ink on Sahara Sand cardstock, punched it out with the 1" Circle Punch and then sponged around the edge with Pumpkin Pie ink and attached it with a dimensional.

I know it was a stretch using these colors for a holiday card but I have to say, in the end I really like how it turned out, nice rich colors.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing using these colors and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.

  1. Who knew these colours would look so fab on a Christmas tree - I love how you've done the tree with the snowflakes still showing.
