Hello! Happy Hoppin! This week is "blues" week at 
Coloring Down the Lines!!! 
Although I went rogue! It's a blue Christmas here!!!

Welcome to the hoppers from Helen's blog. Be sure to head on over to 
Lizzy's blog after this one! Then keep going!!

Here's my creation this week!:

Here's the Inspiration Photo:

And of course the Stampin' Up! colors:

These colors definitely do not say Christmas to me, but I really wanted to make a Christmas card! lol No, not pushing the season! Just wanted to play with some of my goodies!!! I guess it's never too early to plan Christmas cards!

So it's a pretty card. Didn't exactly turn out the way I planned, but I still like it! I've been dying to use my Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack! It's so pretty!!! But it's vellum! Here I embossed with the lovely 
Softly Falling Embossing Folder!  I love how the vellum looks embossed! Very distressed like! But I wanted a background under it, so I pulled out my trusty Lovely as a Tree stamp set & stamped away. Problem is it's hard to see here! I wanted it to "pop" a bit more! Not dark enough I guess! Look closely though. It's there!

The "joy" sentiment is from Your Presents! I have used this particular stamp set often!!!  I love the simplicity of the font-simple yet elegant without being too fancy!!

So hope you like my first real Christmas card of the season! Maybe more to follow! lol

Happy sTampin'!!!


  1. It definitely says Christmas to me. You made good use of the vellum. I like the background vellum with Softly Falling. Very pretty card.

  2. Thinking outside of the box - wonderful card with these colors!

    1. lol Lizzy! That's where I live-outside of the box! lol

  3. I love this card, Joni. I think I'd like to case it, if you don't mind?

    1. Of course Helen! I'm honored! I'm so in awe of your creations!!!!!! xo
