Christmas Color Challenge

My card for today uses the Color Challenge on SplitCoastStampers. The colors are Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and Pretty in Pink.

The stamps are all from the Archiver’s Hot Spot – exclusively for them by Imaginisce. I stamped the poinsettia stamp with Riding Hood Red and Pretty in Pink on white, then used my Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder on it. Then I sponged Kiwi Kiss along the edges, and over the dots, very subtly. I stamped the “Merry Christmas” with Riding Hood Red and colored it with Pretty in Pink. I masked it, and then used the poinsettia stamp again, this time in Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss. I went over the Pretty in Pink with a glitter pen. I punched it out with a Marvy Uchida punch, and also used a Marvy punch for the Riding Hood Red scalloped circle, which I added white dots to with a gel pen. The circles are mounted on Pop Dots. The ribbon is from Michael’s. The snowflakes are punched from Kiwi Kiss and have pearl centers.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
