Hello everyone. Today is another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me. This time our challenge was to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. I decided to go with Smoky Slate and Flirty Flamingo. That is about as non-traditional as you can do!
To make this card, I used the stamp set called So Many Stars along with the matching dies called Stitched Stars. Remember, you can save 10% until the end of this month if you buy this set in a Bundle. I know the star dies are carrying over but the stamp set is not so if you like it, now is the time to purchase it. I also used the die set called Stitched Rectangles and another called Merry Christmas. This is where the big “Merry” came from.
I first took a piece of Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ collection and layered it on top of a card base of Smoky Slate. Then I cut out the frame using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered a piece of Whisper White cardstock in the middle. I stamped the star and cut it out using the Stitched Stars Dies along with all the other stars. I cut the sentiment from Smoky Slate cardstock and put it all together.
Now let’s go see what non-traditional colors Buffy and Jackie used. Using different colors was fun!
Oh, I LOVE the Smoky Flamingo combination. Very pretty card, Susan. Still considering the stars…
I love I! The Flirty Flamingo is bright and cheery. Traditional or not, I like this design, too. It eould look great in many color schemes.
Susan this is such a fun card. It really celebrates the season. I love it. The colors you and I chose were really close!
What a fun card, with the non traditional colours!
