Color Challenge Christmas Cards

Hello everyone! I am back for my second Tuesday guest designing for SplitCoastStampers Color Challenge.   This week, Mary is the host and she chose Real Red, Cucumber Crush and Marina Mist. (Translation is Red, Green and Blue).  I hope I was able to get a close match for the Cucumber Crush - I really dug through my papers!  The optional theme is Christmas and I did go with it for both of my cards!


My first card is SUPER clean and simple.  I was inspired by a design on Pinterest, but I changed it up to make it my own.  It felt good to use the tiny star die in my set!


My second card is my favorite because I do adore this country Snowman stamp.  The birds were perfect because I could use them to include the blue.  I colored this with alcohol markers.


Supplies: October Afternoon Boughs and Berries Stamp set, Deep Red Stamps Snowman with Birds, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Memento Black ink, Spectrum Noir and Copic markers, Gina Marie X stitched rectangle dies, DieNamics Pierced Square dies, Darice star dies, American Crafts Let it Snow patterned paper, Sizzix embossing folder.

I know everyone is busy so I really appreciate your visit today!

Beautiful cards and I especially love the pattern paper you used with the snowman one. That is so gorgeous! Did it come that way or did you emboss the paper to create that texture on it?

Thanks! The red paper is embossed, the triangle one is the patterned paper.
