It's A Blue Kind of Christmas

I love the way the coloring turned out on this card.  The stamp is by Magenta.  I wanted to make the flowers "pop" so I colored the backgrounds with a neutral color, like as if I were making a monochromatic card.  Then added the one other color I desired...okay two, I forgot about the leaves.  I made this card in red also, but the blue was better in the end.


Thanks to my friends Marty for bringing over this stamp to use at our little play-date.

Jenn! This is stunning! Is that one large square stamp or smaller rectangular/square stamps that you arranged like a mosaic? Just beautiful! Do you happen to have a name of the stamp set or even better... a link? :) Thanks!

its all one stamp which is great because you can chop it up for smaller cards. It comes as a mosaic like stamp.

I think its about 4 x 4...maybe bigger.

Jenn, finally had a chance to see what I've been missing over the last few weeks with the play going on. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this poinsettia card and will be looking for a 'private lesson' on how you did this when I see you next time. Amazing, as always!

This is beautiful....love the template design and I'm really partial to blues this year. Wish I had time to do more, but at least you have inspired me for future cards.
