The Simon Says Stamp Blog is hosting a blog hop today celebrating their latest release, Making Spirits Bright...a wonderful assortment of stamps, dies and creative supplies, designed especially for the upcoming seasons and holidays...oh what wonderful fun!! I am joining a number of amazing artists today, to showcase the amazing new products now available for sale over at Simon Says Stamp!!
I don't know about you, but life is busy...and around the holidays...really busy! The cards I made to show you for the hop today, are three cards all using the same stamp set, stamps, and layouts...but with different color schemes.
The FIRST ONE...CLASSIC/TRADITIONAL...
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this little tree...I think it is GORGEOUS!!! It is from the new set, Give Thanks...a beautiful set of greenery that celebrates both Thanksgiving and Christmas!! I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this little tree embossed in gold!!! So, these first trees, I chose three shades of green, layered the trees and the white panel (with recycled chipboard from kleenex packaging:):)!!), and straightened the curved sentiment from the set, to stamp it straight beneath the panel of trees. I DID use the pretty new background stamp, Center Cut Kaleidoscope with versa mark, and stamped it onto the green panel to give the background some "texture" and interest, with it's pattern.
The SECOND ONE...CLASSY/OMBRE...
I used black, dark gray and light gray cardstock for this second version. I love the look of black and gold!!
The THIRD ONE...NON-TRADITIONAL COLORS...
