Color Challenge

Hi everyone!  It is a snowy day here in CT, the perfect day to stay inside and make some cards.  I was totally inspired by the most recent challenge over at StampNation.  It is an amazing color challenge.  The graphic is so pretty!  The colors are mainly red and light blue in the photo, but there are little bits of gray and green in the photo.  I was definitely drawn to add gray on my cards.  There is just something I love about gray leaves and now gray pine branches!!!  :)

While I had all my supplies out I stamped a bunch of these ornaments using red and blue.  After stamping them all I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

The front panel of my card was die cut using the Good Stuff tag dies from the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval Collection.  This die will be in Catherine's store later in 2018.  Love the aperture this die makes.

Here are a couple more using the circle shaped ornament and the piece that was left over after using the Good Stuff tag dies.

To add a little interest to these cards I die cut the tag die from red cardstock and attached it to the back of the stamped piece using dimensional adhesive, so when you look at it from an angle you can see a bit of red peeking out.

On this card I used a light blue cardstock.

Here is a peek at my card for this week's Christmas card challenge on StampNation.

We are totally enjoying being on the new platform over on StampNation.  I have been spending time over there just getting used to where everything is and how to navigate.  It's pretty easy and looks amazing!

Before you go, I wanted to let you know the Plaid background stamp is back in stock!
