Bird Banter with Sparkle

Welcome back to our Stamp Off fun, sponsored by
Buffy, Susan and myself.

Today we have a fun color challenge.  It will be interesting
to see if we go with non-traditional Christmas colors, 
or steer away from Christmas for this challenge.

For my part, I could envision only one set to go with
these colors, and it is a sneak peak.  This card was made with
Bird Banter (p 42), from the upcoming Stampin' Up! 
Occasions catalog, due out in January.  The little birds 
absolutely lend themselves to bright color combinations,
that can be used for masculine (or feminine) events.
In this example, I covered the parrot with Wink
of Stella, to give it some sparkle.

I used a couple other items that will be released with
this catalog, including the Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper
(p 37) and Petal Passion DSP on page 23.  I am very fond of
black and white patterned paper because it can be used
for almost any card, or colored to help it coordinate with
other product.

So now that you have been kind enough to check out my
challenge project, please click on over to see what
Susan and Buffy have done with their color challenge.

Starlight meets Swirly Scribbles

This card combines Swirly Scribbles Thinlits with the 
Starlight Thinlits, both found on page 216.   They are
layered on the Bundle of Love Specialty Paper on page 189, 
to take advantage of all of that wonderful golden bling.

Color Me Happy with Lift Me Up

Here's one more Color Me Happy card.  I colored the
image with Stampin' Blends and added the sentiment
from Lift Me Up on page 58.  This layer was place on
a piece of Color Theory DSP (page 187).

Hope that you have a happy Monday!
