Merry Christmas for Color Hues

 Hello friends.  I have a new Christmas card in Pink & Silver for the Color Hues Challenge.


I just received these new stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink called Ornament Opulence and thought they would be perfect to try with these colors.  I stamped the base of the ornaments in SU Blushing Bride and the top detail layers in Flirty Flamingo.  I stamped the ornament tops in Versamark ink and embossed in silver.  The bows are stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I die cut the images with the matching dies and mounted them with foam tape to a panel embossed with an older Darice EF.  The pine branches from a Spellbinders die are die cut from silver foil and layered across the top at an angle.  The sentiment from Concord & 9th Festive Corner Cuts die is also cut from Silver foil and the shadow layer from vellum.  I matted the embossed layer with Blushing Bride and then to the white card base.

I am also linking to Darnell's NBUS as this is the first time I have used the Ornament Opulence set.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

  5. Wonderful card, JoAnn! The ornaments are lovely and I like fancy silver pine branches they're dangling from!
