Warm Wishes for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying the weekend. Here, we are in full Christmas-decorating mode. We have the tree up and most of the decorations done...just one more room to go! It was a family affair with everyone pitching in, which is a nice change from past years when it has been all-Mommy-all-the-time ;)
Today marks the start of a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps. It features lots of rich yummy hues...




Here is my wintry take on it:

I'll admit, I found this challenge tough, as I am still in Christmas-mode. So I pulled the two shades of grey and one of the reds from the challenge to come up with this design that works as a Christmas or winter-theme card.

I used the Cable Knit TIEF to emboss my Smokey Slate background panel and then layered two silver foil snowflakes on top. I added die-cut mittens in Real Red and Whisper White. These were cut with the Many Mittens Framelits, which just happen to be on sale in the Year End Sale promotion right now! I added a stitched felt star because felt just makes everything cozier and I love the texture it adds.

The sentiment is from a retired set called Winter Wishes and is simply perfect for this design. I added some Smokey Slate 1/8" stitched ribbon and some silver enamel dots and hearts in the centre of the mittens for some sparkle. Voila...quick and easy holiday card.

On the inside I used a sentiment from the Hearts Come Home stamp set, inking it with Smokey Slate and Real Red markers, and then added another little silver enamel heart.

If you're looking for a creative challenge or a break from Christmas red and green, give this challenge a try and then be sure to share with us over at Sunday Stamps. We'd love to see what you create!
