Simply Stampin Challenge 38
The Simply Stampin Challenge is to use these colours in a piece of artwork.
I have three of these colours but unfortunately I don't have Wild Wasabi yet so I have had to use Old Olive instead and have made a card similar to one that I made at card a stack with Jo a few months ago.
This uses the lovely Season of Joy stamp which I have used a lot both last year and this year. The tree has been glittered with Dazzling diamonds and the Chocolate Chip piece at the bottom has been paper pierced. I quite like the effect that paper piercing has on a piece of card.

Both the Less is More Challenge and the Simply Stampin Challenge have asked for cards using leaves as inspiration this week. The Lovely as a Tree stamp set is a beautiful set which I recently purchased but have not used yet so this was a good chance to use it. The first one inspired me so much that I made a second one. The layout for both is similar. They both have double score lines above and below the image. The first one uses the oak leaves and the acorn which was stamped in Chocolate Chip and then blended using the blender pen with a little Pumpkin Pie. The second card uses the group of trees and then underneath the score lines I have stamped the small leaf in Chocolate Chip,Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.
I am entering this card in the Make my Monday challenge week 27 which this week is to design seasonal card with glitter. The snowflakes do have some dazzling diamonds on them but it is quite difficult to see. I am also going to enter it in the Simply Stampin' Challenge #36 which is a Snowflake sparkle. and here is a close up of the snowflakes
