Welcome everyone! I’m excited to announce that I have been asked to be part of this fabulous group. As a member of this team I will be posting A COLOR FUSER idea the first Monday of every month.
This month our blog hop gives you a variety of projects that you can case using Stampin’ Up Colors, Emerald Envy~Cherry Cobbler~Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.
I made this Christmas card using this month’s color fusers colors. The stamp sets that I used were meant to be used during Halloween, but I wanted to show you how you can continue using them during Christmas.
The sentiments on this card are from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. I’m here to show you how versatile Stampin’ Up! colors and stamps really are.
The JOY JOY JOY and the chimney are stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink to coordinate with the card base. JOY is one of the stamps in this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. I dressed up JOY by placing a pearl as the dot on the lower case J. Adding a simple pearl can take your project to another level.
I layered Emerald Envy card stock onto the Cherry Cobbler card base and then began creating my scene on the Whisper White clean slate. The house stamp is from the stamp set ” SWEET HOME”. I stamped it using Tranquil Tide ink onto Whisper White card stock. Then I fussy cut it out. I did the same thing with the door and the window. I used a striped boarder stamp from he same set and Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp a decorative trim on the house. Every house needs a chimney so I took the brick fence post from the stamp set “GRAVEYARD GATE” inked it up, stamped it and fussy cut it out too. Then all I had to do was mount the chimney behind the house. The post worked as a chimney just as I imagined. WHOOHOO!
I also wanted to suggest that Santa was sliding down the chimney, so I used a Cherry Cobbler marker and colored the head of the little ghost in the “SWEET HOME” set and stamped it onto Whisper White card stock. Next I colored it in and added a WHITE PERFECT ACCENT to the tip. Viola! Santa’s hat. I then placed the hat at the top of the chimney to complete my vision.
The Spriggs on the gable of the house are from the “Pretty Pines Thinlets”. I needed the spriggs to stand out so I used Emerald Envy card stock. They now stand out and coordinate with the layer piece under the Whisper White scene,
The finishing touches were the embossing paste and the dazzling diamonds glitter. Those two products created snow instantly.
For the inside of the card I used the same thinlits, pearls and colors. The Merry and Bright sentiment is another stamp from this months Paper Pumpkin.
I hope I’ve encouraged you to combine your stamp sets when creating. LOOK at your stamps and see what other images pop out at you.
Go out of the box with your colors. Who would have thought these four colors would look good together?
Here is a close up of the chimney and Santa’s hat. You can also see the detail of the candy striped trim. SU paste and glitter are perfect for tis time of year, so grab some.
