Seasonal Chums

What a fun color inspiration we have for you this first Thursday in December.  I will have to say since I am in the ‘holiday’ card mode right now, I had a bit of a challenge using these colors (So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Tranquil Tide) with a holiday image.  Thank goodness for snowmen…they can be ANY color!

Here’s the details…

  • Calypso Coral – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Delightful Daisy dsp (Calypso Coral print) – 4 x 5 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 3 3/4, stamp greeting using Calypso Coral, run through Softly Falling embossing folder, layer onto Tranquil Tide – 3 3/4 x 3 1/4, add to car dront
  • So Saffron – 1/4 x 4 3/4, add to card front
  • Tranquil Tide – cut out tree, add using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp snowman using Memento Black, color using So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Tranquil Tide markers and Sahara Sand for the bunny, cut out and add using simensionals
  • Add some Star Gold Metallic Shapes to finish off.

It’s time again for another SUO challenge and our first one in December!  The theme for this challenge is favorite holiday colors and I went pretty traditional with this – red and green.

To me the BEST Christmas color is Cherry Cobbler.  It is such a pretty, rich red and perfect for this time of year.

Here’s the details –

  • Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, add to card
  • Stamp greeting in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green
  • Whisper White – stamp large holly leaf 8 times in Garden Green, cut out and make into a wreath on card
  • Gold Glimmer – cut out three sprigs from Pretty Pines thinlets and add to wreath
  • Cherry Cobbler – cut out small bow from Pretty Pines thinlets and add to wreath
  • Perfect White Accents – color using Cherry Cobbler darker Blend and add to wreath to finish off
