Holiday Series--Stamping 411 Challenge


I guess it's time to start gearing up to holiday stamping so here is the first of several posts using the Bells and Boughs stamp sets from the Holiday Mini Catalog along with the beautiful Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper. I was inspired by the Stamping 411 Weekly Design. I wanted to achieve a "vintage look" for this card so I colored the pearls with the cherry cobbler marker. Of course, the color doesn't adhere in a uniform way and looks somewhat peeled off like an antique bead would look.



My color combination for this card was Almost Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake along with a little Very Vanilla. I love the new Chantilly Crochet Trim. It gives it such an antique look.



Enjoy the sample and your weekend.
