The Magic of Christmas

June colours

There is a new challenge up and running over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This week’s challenge is a color challenge and featuring the colors Yellow, Orange and Red.

EK Gorman 52 CCT aI pulled out a holiday stamp set from The Verve and stamped it out onto some water color paper.  I also die cut the sentiment using another Verve die.  Then using progressively larger circle dies, I blended onto some Bristol paper an ombre effect using Distress Oxides.  I used Fired Brick, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber and Squeezed Amber.

EK Gorman 52 CCT bI sprayed the paper with some clear water and splattered some Candies Apple and Spiced Marmalade onto the paper.  Additionally, I die cut and stamped a poinsettia and colored it in using the two Distress Red Oxides from above.

I can’t wait to see who you used this unusual color scheme on your Christmas card.


  1. Love this background showing off your sentiment. It tells me that I often over-complicate things! This is a beautiful card made with simple ideas. x
