A New Stampendous Monthly Challenge!

It's the first Saturday of the month again, and that means that the Stampendous team is playing along with a NEW monthly challenge!  This month we are playing with a color challenge...to use pink, cream, gold, and/or brown in a card or project.  The colors can be by way of papers, coloring implements, inks, and/or any of the fabulous Stampendous Essentials.  If you've been stuck in a traditional holiday color mode, this is your opportunity to think outside the Christmas crayon box!
My version of the color challenge features the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Reindeer Swirls. I started by layering pieces of the various papers that I chose to go with the color theme. Then I simply stamped the images with Versamark ink and embossed in the new Fran•tage Essentials Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. I love these new embossing enamels...chunky, varied color and texture, just enough shine without going over the bling side! I added a few swirls and the sentiment stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink, which was also used to ink around the edges. This card was simple enough to do in multiples...so I did. The unique color scheme will stand out next to all the myriads of red and green cards given during the holidays.

Please join us in our challenge this month, and link your creation(s) to the InLinkz located on the Stampendous Impressions' blog (or any team member's blog post that has the collection at the bottom). You don't have to use Stampendous images and/or products on your designs...but we sure love it when you do!  You have until January 5, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST to enter your creation, for the opportunity to be the one lucky random winner to receive this fabulous Stampendous prize, the Amore Frame Perfectly Clear set:

The colors and reindeer image are so peaceful. Certainly wouldn't be the same with the red/green traditional colors. Gorgeous card!
