Christmas Colors

Hi stampers!  It's Tuesday, time for a new challenge over at HSS.  This week is a color challenge which are always my favorite!  Check out these fab colors:

I love them and of course I HAD to make a Christmas card with them!  I'm pretty traditional so I just couldn't NOT make something Christmas here!  I know that being on a design team is supposed to make me think outside the box BUT sometimes I like the box and we all know I love Christmas. Plus, now that Halloween is over I pretty much make Christmas stuff for the next two months anyway!  I'm a seasonal stamper, lol!

It was also the perfect time to break out my stiched stockings set and punch which I had gotten and not used yet.  Anybody else buy stuff and then it sits on the shelf and stares at you for a while? ;-) 

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Stitched stockings, hand penned holidays
Paper:  Very vanilla, wild wasabi, real red
Ink:  Versamark, real red, wild wasabi, cherry cobbler, silver glimmer
Accessories:  Pewter EP, stocking punch, snow burst embossing folder

I kept the card pretty simple because I wanted the stockings and glimmer paper to really stand out and shine.  I colored my stockings with markers and then added my glimmer paper accents.  I also really love the new snow burst embossing folder...of course I haven't met a folder I don't like, lol!  The sentiment is from Hand Penned Holidays and I finally had to break down and get it after not liking it initially.  I thought it was hard to read and still do but it's elegant...I'm such a sucker, lol!  I embossed it with the new pewter EP to keep with the silvery theme.  Anyway, I hope you like it and I hope you go check out what the DT has come up with and play along with us!  You know you want to:-)

Happy stamping!

Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
