Creative Colour Challenges 8 – Merry Christmas To You

Hello, I hope you are well.

There’s a brand new challenge over at and the lovely Victoria Littlewood has given us these colours this week…

Please CLICK HERE to see what Victoria has created with these colours and to join in the fun.

These colours just screamed Christmas at me and I grabbed the Christmas Season stamps and Seasonal Labels Dies to create foliage, pine cones and berries for this card…

My card base is Real Red card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I cut a piece of Basic White card to measure 9.5 x 13.5 cm that I embossed with the Merry Melody 3D folder.

The Christmas Season stamp set doesn’t have any words in it so I picked a sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set. I used Real Red ink on Basic White card and cut it with a die from Seasonal Labels that looks like it was made for it!

Now it may look like I’ve cheated and used another brown colour for my pine cones but I didn’t; I simply inked up with Early Espresso but stamped off onto a scrap of paper before stamping onto my card. This just gives you a lighter effect with just the one ink pad.

I arranged all my die cuts onto the white card and then added the sentiment on top with dimensionals.

I really hope you like my card and will be tempted to give the colour challenge a go too!
