Good morning! It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! The challenge this month was to choose an unusual Christmas color combination and get started on holiday crafting! I'm sure it's no surprise that I chose this color combination:
I'm all about the bright, fun colors and I was immediately drawn to this combo. Hot Pink on a Christmas card?! Yes, please! :)
I pulled out my Holiday Lights stamp set and challenged myself to make a clean and simple card using that stamp set, and the above color recipe. Here is what I came up with:
For a little something extra, I added glossy accents to the light bulbs.
The more I played with this color combination, the more I loved it! I was inspired by the stripes in the inspiration photo, so I pulled out my Watercolor Wonder stamp set and Tag Sale #10 die. I played around with several images for the tags, but all were too busy to go with the bold striped background I'd created,.. I ended up with an old favorite, Lawn Fawn's Making Frosty Friends. I think the size of the snowman is perfect for these tags, and the scarf and heart help to tie in the color scheme. I am so pleased with how these turned out and I can't wait to tie them onto holiday packages!
I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing lots more of this color combo before the holiday season is through!
That's all for now... thanks for stopping by! :)
