Unconventional Christmas Colors

Looks like we are in for some storms tonight.  There are watches all over the tv for Flash Flooding an severe thunderstorms.  The trees are very still outside right now and it is super humid.   Should make for some interesting sleeping tonight.  

 Do you use conventional Christmas colors when making your Christmas cards?  Or do you go unconventional?  Typically, I go conventional, the greens and reds, but sometimes it's nice to get away from that.  Look what I came up with.

The colors I chose were Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose and Mint Macaron.  I haven't done much with the new 2019-2020 In-Colors, but add in the Mint Macaron, and they all look great together!

If you were lucky to get the Purple Posy, that would look great too.  I wasn't so lucky, and haven't put in an order lately.  But, it is now available, both the ink pad and refill!  

Notice the Merry Christmas along the left side of the card?  That is actually ribbon!  I ran a very thin line of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the side and adhered the ribbon using that.   You could also use Tear & Tape if you have that.

Now, what I'm excited for is the three rhinestones.  I tried an experiment.  I picked up a rhinestone with the Take Your Pick tool, the piercing tool to be exact.  I gently dabbed it in the Delicata Copper ink pad.  Now, I was impatient for it to dry, so I took my heat tool to it.  Within about 30 seconds it was dry, and didn't rub off!  WaHoo!  Now I have copper rhinestones! 

I'm starting to hear some thunder in the distance, and the wind is picking up.   Time to let the dog out before the storm really does hit.

Until next time...Stampin' Always,
