Colored Christmas Cards!

Look at this beautiful card!  I made this with my downline, Jennifer Reed, at her Christmas Stamp-a-Stack back in October.  She had some really great ideas, one of which was to create trees with the 3 Heart Punch!  And the picture doesn't do it justice, as the Garden Green paper was first layered in Irridescent Ice, so it has a wonderful sparkle to it!    The white is Glossy White, so the Watercolor Crayons are wonderfully muted and soft-looking.  The snow on the hills is Dazzling Diamonds, on a layer of 2-Way Glue!

Jennifer's stampers love to color, so she always has different mediums to color with on her card samples.  This adorable card is CASED from the catalog, and showcases the Watercolor Pencils.  Now, the Watercolor Pencils do not exactly coordinate with the Stampin' Up! 40 colors, but that's not a problem.  Since there was not a pencil for Old Olive, I simply layered a green pencil over yellow, and then when I wet them, the layers blended beautifully to match the green in the rest of the card.  And check out those paper buttons!  I love that you can make as many buttons as you need, in any color that you want!  Jennifer did a beautiful job on these 2 cards, featuring different ways to color on cards!  Check back tomorrow for a few more of Jennifer's cards!
