Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Week Five

This week, Maria not only had a sketch challenge for us, but a colour challenge as well! The challenge, to use pink, purple and blue on the card! Now that is a colour combo that in my opinion is a little tricky, but it looks like the Design Diva's stepped up to the plate to create some Gorgeous Cards!

I decided to let Pink take the forefront in my card. I seem to have a thing for using Valentine Paper on my Christmas Cards lately! I stamped the main image on and used K&CO Valentine paper for the main panel.

This is Noelle from Stampotique. She is a eccentric and Beautiful Girl, in the mood for some Festive Spirit. I like stamping these images onto light coloured DP and then I just use a little marker to fill in large blank areas or to shade. I embossed some small snowflakes around the main image as well as sponged the edges for added depth. In order to fulfill the sketch requirement, I used Heidi Swapp Clear Snowflakes to the upper and lower corners for a subtle look.

I stamped the sentiment and punched it out, using the SU! word window punch. I then sponged the edges for some depth and mounted it onto th emain image. I used Provocraft Snowflake Border, Martha Stewart Border punch and snowflake Cuttlebug to create the borders under the main image. A touch of Metallic Ribbon completes the look.

  6. For some reason, this card reminds me of The Nightmare Before Christmas... not the colors, but the style. It's the coolest thing during the Christmas season when Disneyland turns the Haunted Mansion into the Nightmare Before Christmas, so this is a compliment! LOL
