Sweet Stamps #41 Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

Today is our forty first challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog.  Our challenge iNon-Traditional Christmas Colors.   Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.

I created a waterfall card using purples!! What colors can you come up with??!!

We had snow in Michigan this past week so I figured it was time for snowflakes!! I used the following Sweet Stamps images: Tiny Snowflake, Tiny Snowflake Background, Small Snowflake, Winter Tree, and Christmas Greetings.  I used Distress Clear Embossing Ink on all images.  The snowflakes and tree were embossed with Stampendous Vintage Purple Glitter Embossing Powder.


A waterfall card pulls down showing 3 or 4 different images.  On mine the large snowflake brad is to pull the images down. 

Christmas Greetings was embossed with Queen's Gold.  I added more snowflakes using the following Cheery Lynn dies: Snowflake 3, and Snowflakes.  Snowflake 3 was cut in half for a corner embellishment.. Stickles added extra glitz to the snowflakes. The DP is from Magnolia.

The finished size of the card is 6.25" x 5.50".



Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!!!
