Stampendous Saturday: Fairy Queen Christmas


It's the first Saturday of the month again, and that means that the Stampendous team is playing along with a NEW monthly challenge again!  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!  

Today I'm showing off a "multi-tasking" card.  I've been sick all week, along with my toddler, so I haven't had much stamping time.  I needed to make twenty Christmas cards for my mother-in-law by today, and I wanted to play along with this fun challenge.  So I combined those tasks.  She asked for the Fairy Queen stamp to be used on the outside of her cards, which is a pretty big image and covered my card front. 


Rather than color it, I just sponged the edges of the card stock and added Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel all over it.  I added the sentiment in the lower corner (it's a bit higher on some cards).  It didn't take too long to whip up twenty of these!  Since we can use ANY shades of pink, brown, cream, and gold, I managed to get all four colors incorporated.  Yay me!


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:
