Holiday Lineup – CCMC128

This week on Create with Connie and Mary we have a Color Challenge.  Let's see how you use the colors of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Night of Navy and River Rock!  I think our Challenge Team came up with some pretty good ideas using these colors.  You can check them out over on Create with Connie and Mary



For my card, I pulled out an oldie, but goodie, Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Lineup.  It just wouldn't seem like Christmas if I didn't use this set at LEAST once during the holidays!  I haven't used the Elves as much as the snowmen, so I decided to pull them out.  I thought they would look good dressed up in these colors!  The only color I added was the Blush Blossom Marker for the faces…I didn't want them to be green, you know?  lol!



Now…I've used a SNEAK PEEK from the new Occasions Mini…can you see what it is?  If you guessed the Night of Navy button…you are right!  The new Springtime Vintage series features three of the colors we used…Night of Navy, Old Olive and River Rock! 


I started by stamping the elves with Black Stazon Ink on Whisper White.  Then I used my Stampin' Write Markers in River Rock, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Blush Blossom and Night of Navy to color them.  At the top, I stamped Happy Holidays from Stampin' Up!'s Four the Holidays stamp set in Black Stazon.  I layered the Whisper White on Night of Navy and wrapped some of the Clear Tinsel around the bottom.


The base of the card is Old Olive and I layered a piece of River Rock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder on it.  Along the edge, I used the Scallop Edge Punch on Rich Razzleberry.  For a final touch, I added the large Night of Navy Designer Button.  I placed a Rich Razzleberry Glimmer Brad in the center of it first and secured it with Mini Glue Dots.


This set just makes me SMILE!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did over on Create with Connie and Mary.  Then use the colors to create your own card and upload it!  We love to see what you do!

I have loved those little elves since the first day I saw them!  You know, I have never bought that set?  Might have to reconsider…
