Christmas card with pink

Two weeks ago I went to a craft fair and bought a Christmas stamp and die set from Hero Arts. I made three cards in blues and silver (post here) and I said I wanted to try the stamps with pink too.
When I saw the color challenge over at ColorQ it seemed to be the perfect time to do so, and also Nonni's choice of theme for Inkspirational, using 5 stamps or more. I believe I used 9 different ones (2 snowflakes, 3 different tree stamps, the snowman and the sentiment, one with script from the same set and also one from another brand). I used just one pink inkpad - DI picked raspberry, but I achieved the two toned effect by stamping two times before reapplying ink.
Those of you who visit me regularly know I'm no one layer card maker, but I made one, completely voluntarily too! I only added 3 bling because I thought my card lacked some sparkle.


This card is for:
ColourQ - #362 Color Inspiration
Inkspirational - #119 Use 5 Stamps
Addicted to Stamps and More - #215 CAS

Beautiful Christmas card Pia, I never thought using pink would look so effective, the way you used the stamp adds dimension to the trees great one layer card.

Gorgeous Christmas card Pia, the trees look lovely in pink with that jolly snowman
I'm going to make the effort to do one layer cards this Christmas too, the postage gets so expensive otherwise.
Just had a quick look at your other makes, love the one for Chall 8.

No, you are usually NOT a 1-layer-kinda-gal! But this is FABULOUS... I must say you absolutely ROCKED the multi-layer stamping... which absolutely made up for the single layer of paper! :) SO well done, my friend!

Karen Steele said...

This looks so different in the pink Pia but it is so pretty, it really works!

Fab buy on this so versatile set of images. Love the non-traditional & unexpected pop of the shades of pink trees with the dark stamping on the snowman. Adding in the falling snowflakes with some bling...just a beautiful design. Like the subtle look of the overstamping too. TFS & Have a great week. Hugs

Hi Pia, great idea stamping two toned effect with DI pink!!! It gives a very beautiful depth to your CAS! And the contrast with the black and white snowman is just perfect to be a catch-eyes! A bit of sparkle make your card more festive. Great work!
I'm very busy with my work, and I'm thinking that CAS cards would be the only way for crafting in these times... If I was be able, of course! :) LOL

What a pretty card, Pia. It's funky, girly and very contemporary with a grungy elegance is that just perfect for a modern Christmas celebration. You totally rock the two-toned stamping. Have to warm you that I see myself CASE-ing this card.
