'Tis the Season ~ HSSCC378

'Tis the season for warm holiday colors!  This weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge is beautiful and I can't wait to see what everyone creates!

I think I used a a little something from every seasonal suite in the July-December Mini Catalog for this card!  Black & White Gingham Ribbon from the Cute Halloween Suite, Cork Specialty Paper from the Harvest Meadow Suite and cute little Christmas Trees Dies from the Whimsy & Wonder Suite.  I LOVE it when so many different products all work together!

I cut some whimsical trees in shades of Merry Merlot, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent and arranged them on a circle of Cork Speciality Paper.  To give the card a bit more color, I added a piece of Evening Evergreen In-Color DSP...but it still needed more!

...bring in the Black & White Gingham Ribbon!  Have I mentioned how much I love this ribbon?!?!  A bit more black was added with a sentiment from Christmas to Remember stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I thought about adding a few embellishments, but decided this card just didn't need them.  

Are you ready for the Christmas season?  I was ready after Halloween, but I held off on putting any decorations up until the weekend before Thanksgiving.  We usually wait until the weekend after, but we were traveling this year, so I decided some Christmas cheer for a few more days wouldn't hurt anyone!

I hope you'll join along and share your colorful Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge  creations!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Oh gosh, Bree, how perfect those trees are over the cork! And that touch of gingham ribbon is just the right detail to go with - beautiful!

  2. I love this card Bree! The cork paper behind the trees really adds so much texture and that with the texture of the trees is perfect!
