Today’s blog is a card I created for The Paper Players Color Challenge PP553 using Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. All very festive Holiday colors in my mind!
I choose to use the Happy Holly-Days stamp set from the 2021 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog which is currently available for you to order from. You may order from my Online Store here.
The background of the Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) is embossed with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. The background right behind the bird is stamped with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set onto a Very Vanilla CS oval. The oval dies are from my stash. I distressed the edges of the Old Olive CS oval.
I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers combined with the Stampin’ Write Watercolor Markers to color the images. The bird is colored in Real Red as are the berries for the holly. The yellow is Daffodil Delight and the green is Old Olive.
I hope you stop by The Paper Players to see all of the entries for this color challenge PP553. I really enjoyed the challenge!

Theresa, this is such a beautiful Christmas card. I love the embossed background for texture and your coloring on the bird is fabulous!
Thank you for joining my color challenge at The Paper Players this week!
Thank you very much!
I love the vintage feel of this fabulous image. It works so well in that oval frame and reminds me of all the little robins I used to see growing up in England in winter. So glad you shared this beauty with us at the Paper Players this week
