Colour Challenge with Perfectly Plaid SNEAK PEAK

Hello!  Today, I am sharing a handmade card using the Perfectly Plaid bundle from the 2019 holiday catty, as a SNEAK PEAK!   I am also following a create challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments using one of Stampin’ Up’s new In-Colours: Pretty Peacock.  I’m so thankful for these challenges as I find colour matching to be so hard at times.  Here is the challenge…

And since the new Stampin’ Up holiday catty is coming out soon, I thought I would share a sneak peak of some of the items.  Drum roll for the result please….

This card uses the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch from the soon-to-be released holiday catty by Stampin’ Up.  The background is created with the aqua painters for a water colour washed look. 

Can you see the ice shimmer glitter on the sides of the trees?  I just love how it completes the look by adding some dimension and shine to the card.  It reminds me of fresh snow, sitting on evergreen trees, just after a snowfall.  (Is it too early to think about snow?!)

Finally, the Scalloped Lace Trim ribbon adds a nice touch behind the popped-up trees.  I know it’s still summer, but it’s not too early to think about the holidays, my favourite season for making cute paper projects!

  1. Oh, the bit of sparkle makes this so special! I love the strip of lace ribbon anchoring the trees too! Thanks for playing along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
