Stamping Inkspiration Blog Hop...Christmas in July-Color Challenge

StampingInkspiration hop

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop!  This month the theme is Christmas in July with a Color Challenge.  We were given 2 color palettes to choose from.

This one features the colors: Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Sahara Sand, and Early Espresso.  Or we could choose this one.

This palette features Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Petal Pink.

As much as I love the colors of Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Petal Pink, I decided to go with the more traditional combination of Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, and Soft Succulent. 


The card base is Evening Evergreen.  The next layer is gold from the Gold & Rose Gold 6" x 6" Metallic Paper.  The Cherry Cobbler layer is from the Boughs of Holly DSP.   I did stamp one of the holly images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Versamark ink on the DSP but it really doesn't show.  Now I am glad it didn't work as I think it might have looked too busy.  It was lots of fun adding leaves and berries to the label.  I used Very Vanilla CS because I also wanted to use the new Gold & Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon   The ribbon is lovely and it ties beautifully.


Now it is time to check out what Judith has created for you!  I wonder what color combination she chose?
