Holiday Card challenge & Trends Article

Hi friends.  I am sharing a card that I made for my most recent Trends Article over at StampNation.  That article was all about Neon!  I love using Neon on Christmas cards.  So much fun!  I am entering this card over at the Holiday Card challenge at Moxie Fab World.

The sketch I followed:

 You might remember seeing my flip flop card using this sketch.  I LOVE this sketch.  :)

  1. These cards are so crisp and clean and colorful - I love them both! Those hot pink snowflakes are delightful, especially with the glimmer paper behind them. I know it must look gorgeous IRL, too. And that black card, well, you already know it's my fave and has inspired me to do something black with neon. Thanks for the inspiration - as always! Mwah!

  2. Gorgeous! I adore the neon colors....and you have done such an awesome job photographing your card! Neon pink HAS GOT TO BE THE HARDEST color ever to capture accurately in a photo! Beautifully placed and expertly stamped sentiment. My predicition - winner, winner in the Moxie Fab World challenge!

    The flower card is another "hot" little number (as in hot pink, hot green etc.) in the neon realm of things! Loving the tons of 'white' space (or black in this case).

  3. I LOVE both cards - neon always makes things pop! NOw I have to look at all your other creations - I have not been here in a while due to vacation, work, etc...

  4. Wow Kristie :) you use of neon colors is incredible :) love both the cards :), I just can't stop admiring them :)

  5. Both cards are fabulous, but I have to say that that first is my favorite. I think that it's the unexpected neon paired with the elegant font and silver. So fun!

  6. Both cards are fabulous but your first one with the bright pink snowflakes is just stunning.

  7. I'm loving the neon. Two awesome cards!

  8. Electrifying cards, Kristie! Love how you placed your neon snowflakes - yes, your precision is noted! Love the black space on the other cards...

  9. These are both wonderful. Neon is especially striking with black or white, and you have hit the mark with both of these.

  10. I am loving the neon! I bought some ink cubes and they've gone unloved... HELP ME, please!

  11. Kristie, these cards are just stunning! Your execution of neon is is so crisp and....impeccable.
    Love them!
