Christmas stamps are out!

I was part of another card swap last night and the theme was Christmas cards using only Stampin’ Up! stamps.  So I sat down to create and needed a few ideas.  My favorite place to go?  Challenges!  So I pulled up the Global Design Project page and looked at their current challenge. It was to use these colors together

gdp colors I’ve never used these colors together on a Christmas card so I was excited to take this challenge!  Especially because the projects from their design team looked so great using this color combo!

But I needed a layout…

Next step – look at another challenge!  I looked at Freshly Made Sketches and found a fabulous sketch

So with those two in mind, and my Stamp set chosen (an oldie but a goodie!!) I began my card.  I have to say that I LOVE the way these colors look together!  Here is what I came up with

gdp 4I took the picture too late to use natural light so you really can’t see the vibrance of those 3 colors together as well as I would have liked.  But that color combo is a new favorite!

I added Wink of Stella to the snowflakes to make them shimmer – wish it showed up better in pics.  It’s so pretty!

 

It was sure a fun set of cards for the swap!

It was the first Christmas card I’ve made this year.  And I have to say – It’s got me in the mood to create more!  I found some other fun challenges that I just may have to take over the next few days.

Hope you are making time to get inky too.  It’s so satisfying that sometimes it’s worth leaving the dishes in the sink a little longer than planned…
