Today I am sharing another color challenge card I created a few weeks ago. Whenever I get in a rut or can’t make up mind what to create I either look for color ideas or sketch ideas. That gives me a starting point and then I can start working. If you need help jumpstarting your stamping mojo give this a try…it really works!

Here is the color palette I started with:

And here is my card:

It came out pretty close to what I saw in my mind.

Tips & Tricks

Here are a few tips to create this card:

  • I used the moon and stars thinlit at the top of the Tranquil Tide cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) using the Big Shot, then I mounted it on a Soft Sky cardstock base: 4-1/4″ x 11″

  • The greeting was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White scrap cardstock and die cut using the Circle Framelits. I used the scallop framelit to cut Cherry Cobbler then mounted the sentiment on the Cherry Cobbler piece.

  • The ribbon is the New Shimmer Ribbon in Powder Pink.

  • The frosted trees are die cut from Pink Pirouette cardstock and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Then they are offset to give the glimmer trees a pink shadow.

  • The snow is the Seaside Embossing folder coated with Wink of Stella to give it a pretty shine.

Carols of Christmas stamp set is an early release from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. That means you can order this stamp set and framelit set now! If you like to get an early start on your holiday card making then this set should give you a huge head start. It makes cards with a WOW factor for sure.

I hope this will inspire you to try some new colors or ideas….stretch that imagination.
