SUOC189 Seasonal Chums

The theme this time on SUO Challenges is “favorite holiday colors”.  I love ALL the holiday colors, but I must admit that I reach for Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake a LOT for my holiday cards!  I love the richness of this combo!  So, once again I’m using it on my card for this week!

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Cherry Cobbler cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Crumb Cake cardstock was stamped across the middle with the reindeer in Seasonal Chums with Crumb Cake ink.
  • Two 3/4 x 5-1/4 strips of Merry Little Christmas DSP was adhered along the top and bottom of the Crumb Cake layer.
  • The reindeer was stamped on Whisper White with Memento Black Ink, the colored with Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Bronze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  It was cut with the Stitched Shapes Circle and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Merry Christmas from Seasonal Chums was stamped with Memento Back on Cherry Cobbler and cut with the smallest Stitched Shapes Circles and added next to the reindeer circle.

 

So super sweet, don’t you think? That reindeer is just adorable…I even may like it better than the snowman in that set!  lol!  Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team for SUO Challenges did this week with this theme! I’m sure they will have some great ideas!

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Beauty of Fall

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring “Beauty of Fall” this week.  I think the Painted Autumn Designer Paper that Stampin’ Up! offered this year is just FULL of the beautiful fall colors!  I prefer to see the leaves with a touch of green still on them, along with the vibrant red, gold, orange and yellow colors.  I also like using our Large Letter Alphabet and omitting one of the letters in the word with an image like I did here.

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, a 1-3/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Painted Autumn Designer Paper was placed across the bottom.
  • Some Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon covers the seam and is adhered in the back.
  • The F-L-L letters were cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered on front.
  • The pumpkin (back) from Seasonal Chums was colored with Pumpkin Pie, Bronze and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, cut with the Seasonal Tags Thinlits, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

So, very easy, but I love how it turned out! Make sure to check out what the Design Team did with the challenge this week!

CCMC479 Seasonal Chums

It’s Thursday!  And that is time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Surprise!  I used the following color challenge to make a winter card!  At first glance, winter wouldn’t be my guess to use…but I think it worked out great!

 

Here’s my card.  I did use Soft Sky predominately and the two greens as accents…but it works, right?

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Whisper White, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
  • The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Soft Sky was embossed with the Snowflake Embossing Folder in the upper left corner.  A strip of torn Whisper White cardstock was added to the bottom for a snowbank.
  • The Seasonal Chums snowman was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White and colored with Soft Sky, Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers.  Also a little Smoky Slate Marker for his hat and rabbit, Pumpkin Pie Marker for his nose and Real Red Marker for the berries.  He was cut out using the Seasonal Tags Framelits and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front.
  • Two snowflakes from the Seasonal Tags Framelits were cut from Whisper White and added in the background with Clear Faceted Gems in the center for a little bling.
  • Finally, Merry Christmas from Seasonal Chums stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink in the snowbank.

 

Isn’t that fun?  I love how it turned out.  That set is quickly becoming one of my favorites…you’ll see it again on Saturday!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week with the color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
