Christmas Holly Berries Clean and Simple CCS 494

by Joanne James1. November 2022 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. It's November and time for a new hostess! The lovely Cecile is at the helm this month and our first challenge is a colour challenge: 

      

For my card today I broke out a set I've had since I did my seasonal catalogue pre-order but had yet to see ink - the Leaves of Holly Bundle. It was definitely time to change that - this is what I came up with:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

I loved the detailing on the stamps and dies in the Leaves of Holly bundle and today's card showcases the layered label that is included in the set. I created a Mint Macaron blended background so that it would highlight the detail, adding some splatters of (retired) frosted white shimmer paint, and having added ink to the leaves and berries to deepen the colour, placed them behind the white diecut elements:

 

I also stamped my sentiment in Rich Razzleberry instead of black for an added pop of colour - TGIF Challenges are featuring non-black stamping this week but this really wasn't tricky for me - I think on a clean and simple card a coloured sentiment can work really well. How about you - do you often substitute a coloured inked sentiment in lieu of a black one? Do leave me a comment below - I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

As a reminder, for our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up! color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
