Color Throwdown #117


Happy Wednesday!  I couldn’t help but play the CTD today, because the colors were so happy!  What do you think?

swatch 117

I put on some Christmas music and broke open my new SU set, Jolly Old Saint Nick, to make a quick little easel card:


He’s stamped in Stazon and colored with Craft White and a blender pen, using Marina Mist to shade him.  The 3D snowflakes are from the Northern Frost diecut strip----LOVE them---and the stamped snowflakes on the Marina Mist card are from the hostess set, Northern Hearts.  Everything is liberally sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds!  TFL!


And here’s a peek at my little sweetie pie:

  1. Well, gee, I wouldn't have thought to use these colors for a Christmas card, but how perfect is yours?? Love that you made it into an easel card! I can tell that Cassidy is just exuding personality now! So sweet!

  2. First, the baby is soooo cute! And second, so is the snowman!

  3. Oh so sweet! I love the images and colors.

  4. She gets cuter in every picture!!! Love your snowman!

  5. Oh that is so cute! But you know, your cards are always going to be overshadowed by that gorgeous granddaughter!!! She gets cuter every day!!!

  6. I love how you colored that snowman on kraft!! Beautiful card!
    And so is that darling little GD of yours! What a great smile she has!! She's obviously very happy to be spending so much quality time with grandma :)

  7. Well your card pales in comparison to the little guy! ;) But the card is pretty cute! Love the vintage looking snowman! :)

  8. Awww, isn't this the cutest...oh and your card is great too ;-)!!!

  9. Love this snowman LeAnne ~ I just realized that I really don't have any snowmen stamps and I love them! Best get shopping ~ Cassidy is SO adorable! have fun!

  10. Hi LeAnne! Glad you are having fun! I love that snowman, just haven't bought him yet. Beautiful card, even prettier baby!

  11. OMGosh, I LOVE seeing that sweet baby!

    CUTE card! I love how Frosty looks in white against the kraft cardstock!

  12. Love how you used the colors for a Christmas card! I'm also astounded at how you colored your snowman with white craft ink, a blender pen, and did the shading with Marina Mist! How clever is that?! I had no idea you could use craft ink with blender pens to color on cs. You always manage to teach me something new!!

    Thanks for sharing the absolutely adorable pics of Cassidy! She could brighten the darkest of days with that smile and those big, brown eyes that I'm thinking she picked up from gramma ♥
