CR84FN Color Challenge 43

Once again, I'm playing along with my favorite color challenge CR84FN. This week's challenge is brown, tan and green.


I chose to use Impression Obsession's Cabin image to create one of my Christmas cards using these colors. The brown base cardstock is SU and the green and tan glimmer paper are Bazzill. The tan cardstock is embossed with the swirl CB folder.

The image and sentiment (Amuse) were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and the cabin colored with Copics. All were distressed with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. The main image was then punched with the EKSuccess snowflake border and glitter added to highlight the snow and punched edge. The sentiment was die cut with one of the Spellbinder's Ribbon and Brad tags and copper brads added.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We spent the holiday with our daughter and her family in the Chicago area and took the grands to visit the Museum of Science and Industry. What fun!

Stamp Club Project

It was my turn to bring one of the shoe box projects for our November stamp club meeting. Here's my version of Memory Box's Tivoli Snowflake card copied from one of their design team members. The white base card measures about 5" square and then layered with gold metallic cardstock.  The designer paper is Let it Snow, Christmas Past Collection from Graphic 45 and cut with the snowflake die.  What a cool idea to use the negative!   The sentiment is from Endless Creations.  I added glitter around the edge of the snowflake and added the little snowflake bling from Memory Box in the center.  Very simple but very pretty. 

We're poised to have our first snow storm of the season:(  Never ready for winter since it lasts well into March in our neck of the woods!
