Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #31




Hi Stamping Friends!  It's time for another fabulous inspiration challenge from Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge!!  We hope you can play along this week!  Aren't these such pretty and unique colors for Christmas?  I think they would be so fun for a little girls Christmas tree.  My sister has a tree in her girls' room.  It's a small white tree and they have some hot pink boas wrapped around it and all pink ornaments and some crowns and other sparkly stuff.  Very fun!!


A GIFT FROM HEAVEN


I thought these soft colors would make the perfect "Baby's First Christmas" card for any sweet little girl.  Just so happens that it will be my nieces first Christmas, so I have someone special to give it to.  The card base is one of the In-Colors, Blushing Bride which is layered with Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold that was embossed with one of the SU! Texturz plates.  The adorable manger image comes from my nativity stamp collection.  It is a retired SU! set called A Gift From Heaven.  Isn't it adorable?!!  This set was gifted to me by Lisa Hunter, a fellow SU! lover.  Wasn't that so sweet of her?!  I stamped the image on Blushing Bride cardstock with Early Espresso ink.  Then I used my chalks to add some soft highlights of color.  I didn't want to color it all in.  I wanted it to look dreamy and serene.  The sentiment comes from the retired SU! set called All God's Children.  Of course the perfect finishing touch is lots of Basic Pearls.  LOVE those things!!!  And the Whisper White Satin ribbon just makes it even more special.

This wonderful layout is from the Mojo Monday blog.  This is MOJO168.  It also works for the Stampin' Royalty Challenge #49 which is Winter Holidays.

Please stop by the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge and see the fabulous creations the other Design Team members have created.  Then after you have been throughly inspired, come play along with us!!  We would love to see your beautiful stampiness.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
