Stampendous December Color Challenge

I am so excited that this is my 1st post for Stampendous and I get to play along with a fun and easy color challenge! This month we are going to play with colors – Pink, Brown, Cream and Gold. Use at least 3 of the colors on your card! The colors can be by way of papers, coloring implements, inks, and/or any of the fabulous Stampendous Essentials. If you’ve been stuck in a traditional holiday color mode, this is your opportunity to think outside the Christmas crayon box!

Being an overachiver, I decided to use all 4 colors on my card. Well besides the fact that I had to try out my new Stampendous product – Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. Love the awesome vintage/bronzy look and it brings my stamped image to life – so cool. Check it out:

My sentiment is also from Stampendous – an older stamp from the Perfectly Clear Stamp Line (Happy Messages) and my border is Cling Jumbo Romantic Border.

We are giving away an Amore Frame Perfectly Clear™ Stamp set to a random winner. (sorry US winners only)

You don’t have to use a Stampendous image or products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!  You have until Tuesday, January 3 at 11:59 PM EST to add your link to the linky tool, and we’ll draw a random winner.  You can enter as many times as you’d like.

And a quick note about the linky tool below – it’s the exact same collection that is being shared on the Stampendous blog, and some of my teammates’ blogs.  You can add your direct link to your project featuring those 3 or 4 colors (pink, brown, cream, gold) here on my blog, or any of the other blogs that are sharing the collection!

Check out what my team has put together for you

Recipe challenge

Good morning, afternoon and evening everyone,

Today we have a recipe holiday card challenge at Through the Craftroom Door. Make a holiday card with 3 different embellishments. Our sponsor today is Gilli Stamps. I have never colored a Gilli before until this challenge and I LOVE it!! There is so much “wide spaces” for Copic coloring and room to blend and feather. Love it!! Thanks Anary for supply us with your stamps and our winners their prizes.

Anyhow, here is my holiday card with my 3 embellishment (flower soft, ribbons and buttons):

The fun sentiment is from WaltzingMouse Stamp.

Wait – there is more – you get a 2nd chance at winning too:

when you play both TTCRD challenges in the month, you get a chance to win an $18 gift certificate for Ippity stamps too, proudly sponsered by Aletha from Ippity.

How fun is that!! so pull out your stamps and markers and start creating!!

If you need help with coloring, Copic Classes at Color Me Creative Classroom is the best! I’m currently doing class 3 now and it’s amazing what I’m learning about highlights and lowlights in my coloring! I’m loving my coloring these days and a new Class 5 is also just started a few days ago! Class 5 is da-bomb – I got my PDF write ups printed and Suzanne has just outdone herself! There is sooooo much techniques and tips I can’t wait to get started with my videos! Exciting times!!

Come on down and sign up for it! You wouldn’t regret it!
