Paper Players 467 Holiday Cheer


Hi stampers!  Happy Sunday!  Claire is our hostess at the Paper Players this week with a fabulous color challenge..bright and cheerful!  Here you go:


At first glance, I panicked a little when I saw the colors---PURPLE!!  But I put on my thinking cap and came up with this:

I used the CAS(E) this Sketch sketch:

and began my making my own "DSP" by stamping some snowflakes in all three colors on a piece of white cardstock.  It looked a little plain, so I did some sponging around the edges for more definition, which looked much better!  I created some sentiments using Concord & 9th dies, layering the "cheer" with three layers of Granny Apple Green cardstock, as well as backing the "holiday" with a wee little strip of Bermuda Bay foil:

I remembered that I had some Bermuda Bay glimmer paper from a couple of years back, so I used that to diecut a snowflake, and added a rhinestone colored with a purple Copic:

My trend lately has been to use non-traditional colors to make a Christmas card, and this one fits that bill as well, but I like it!  I hope you'll play along with these colors as don't have to make a Christmas card, you can use them for whatever you want!  Check out what the DT did as well as the Paper Players blog!

And I just happened to notice this stained glass heart that's hanging in the window in Cassidy's room; it was made by my SIL, and it has the exact same colors as Claire's challenge!  So pretty! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Well I can easily see these colors aren't just for Halloween anymore! You've done a beautiful job using them on your card - and for the holidays? Amazing little heart!

I saw those colors today and had the same feeling of intimidation that you did. You pulled it off beautifully. That heart is gorgeous!

Claire Broadwater said...

WOW--you certainly made my colors shine with the DSP you created! I love it! I agree, the sponging around the edges just makes it pop on the white background. Your BB snowflake is gorgeous and I love the purple jewel in the center. Your sentiment just shines with the BB foil. Such a FUN card, My Friend! XX

This is just lovely LeAnne! I love the coloured snowflakes which look really bright against the white and the sponged edge does make your panel stand out beautifully. The sparkly glimmer snowflake is the perfect finishing touch.

What a super way to use the challenge colors, LeAnne! I love the glimmer snowflake. This card is amazing...and so is the stained glass in Cassidy's window!

LeAnne, you rocked these colors and I love that you created a Christmas card out of them. Bold, graphic and beautiful. hugs
