Addicted to Stamps Challenge #115 - Christmas


I'm super excited to say that I'm joining the sweet Design Team over at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge blog! I'm going to have the most fun playing along with everyone this term. :) Can't wait to get started.

And, with that, I'll share the card I made for my first DT assignment -- a Christmas challenge!

I white heat embossed the poinsettia from Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints and colored with PrismaColor Pencils. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye and it's layered over panels of Rasberry Fizz and Simply Chartreuse cardstock from PTI. The sentiment is from PTI's Deck the Halls stamp set and layered up on foam tape. I, also, sponged Simply Chartreuse ink around the edges of the sentiment panel. I added a little silver thread and a few sequins to finish it off. This one was really fun to make. I love how the colors turned out!
Speaking of colors - what a fabulous combination. 8-) I got them from this week's Colour Q challenge. (All of my wood patterned papers were gray instead of brown.)
I'm also playing along with Holly Jolly Christmas's "Embossing" challenge and the NonTraditional
Christmas challenge over at The Challenge.
