The Divas have a color challenge today and I guess my mojo is missing, because these were a stretch! I wanted to do something Christmas and vintage, as these seemed good vintage colors....unfortunately, I don't have any stamps to fit that bill! I did need a hostess thank you, and she ordered Lovely as a Tree, so I decided to make a Christmas card she can use:
I tried to use a sketch from Stamping 411 and got frustrated as my image was too large, so I turned it on its side and made my own sketch! The base is Creamy Caramel; mat is Bravo Burgundy embossed with the Finial Press embossing folder, then antiqued with BB ink. The scalloped edge was punched from Creamy Caramel as well, then I split it half and pulled it apart, so it has a sueded feel. The tree is stamped in Always Artichoke on Confetti Cream, and glittered up with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Here's the inside:
My Kraft taffeta ribbon was not quite the right color, so I dyed it with some Creamy Caramel ink...that is a cool way you can get just about every color of ribbon!! Keep it in mind the next time you're placing a SU order--white ribbon and reinkers!!! (And I can help you with that!)
Be sure to stop by the Diva blog to take a peek at all the creations, and play along with us! Put your creation there with Mr Linky and you might get chosen as our Featured Stamper! Woohoo! Thanks for visiting today!
