Welcome to another week's blog hop!!! You're probably visiting here from Helen's blog, Blue Dahlia Designs! I love what she did with the colors this week!!!

So our challenge colors this week were Lucky Limeade, Riding Hood Red, Perfect Plum   OR   Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight. I so love the second color choice, and definitely plan to make something with those colors!!! But AFTER Christmas!!! 

I'm finally totally in the throws of Christmas! Got the card done-if only I could get the shopping done!!! lol 
So anyway, I decided to try a non-traditional Christmas card with these colors! 

So here it is!!!

I have a new favorite cardstock-the Shimmery White!! Wow is that a pretty cardstock!!! I love the "shimmer" in it! I used it for the background of this card! I only wish it came more pieces in a pack like the Whisper White!!! 

So anyway, I "stamped" the 3 blocks for the background using our clear blocks! You just ink the heck out of them & stamp away!! 

 I tried to "glitter" up the larger ornament. It actually is quite sparkly in person! You can kinda see it here!!!

What embossing powder is that you ask??? Well, it's an "embossing powder cocktail"!!! I mixed the Pewter Emboss powder with the Irradescant Ice Emboss Powder! You get both sparkle & shine!!!!

It's a different card, but I like the way it turned out! I wouldn't mind getting that card for Christmas!!!

So now go hop over to Liz's blog Lizzy Stamps & see what fun stuff she came up with!!! She has "spring fever" with such a beautiful card! I know you'll love it!!!

Be sure to stop back this week-or better yet, subscribe!!! Starting on Friday the 14th, I will be posting my "12 Days of Christmas Stampin' Treats"!!! Tune in to see what each day brings! I promise there won't be any maids-a-milking or swans-a-swimming!!!

Happy Stampin'!


  1. Super card! I love the shimmer white cs too, but tend to hoard it because there are so few pieces. Love what you did with the embossing powder cocktail. Great challenge.

  2. Hi Joni. This is a way-cool card. Way to go with the shimmer Love it!

  3. Your card is different but it rocks...loving all of the different techniques you used and the combo of the embossing powders!!!
