HSS Color Splash Challenge #23

Good Morning Stampers!!! I am so thrilled to share this adorable, simple project with you today as part of our Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Splash Challenge #23. Not to mention I have a WINNER for last weeks give away in my blog candy drawing!!! Stay tuned for that.

So these colors are probably some of my MOST fav’s to use, however when I first saw this challenge I automatically thought of Christmas and not of anything else. It took me a while to get OUT of that mind set and move forward. But I feel pretty good about what I came up with. I love the fact that this image can be changed out with almost any nature themed stamp set so anyone can create this look even if they don’t have this retired set.

I layered my Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White pieces onto my Crumb Cake card stock base. I love the taffeta ribbon, although I think this style of it was retired when the new catalog came out a week ago. I can’t bare to give mine up.

I like a lot of dimension and layered many pieces using dimensionals for LOTS of height. I also used a small punch of Rose Red color for an added POP to the front of the card.

I love the look and feel an images gets by stamping off and creating many other shades of that one color, when you think about it that technique basically triples your color palliate of ink pads. I hope you enjoyed my FUN simple project today and now for the moment you and I have all been waiting for… OUR WINNER for the blog candy giveaway!!!
