When I saw that this week’s Global Design Project was a color challenge, using Blushing Bride, Misty Moonlight, and Mint Macaron, I thought of our Whimsical Trees Bundle. For those of you familiar with the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Paper, you know that these are its colors. What a fun color combination for Christmas cards!

Trio of trees


I began by stamping a Blushing Bride rectangle in the center of Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. This was done with a Watercolor Shapes Stamp, “stamping off” the Blushing Bride Ink to make it a lighter shade. “Stamping off” means that I inked the stamp, then stamped on scratch paper before stamping on my project.

Next, I masked the pink rectangle with a sticky note, and added a splattering of Misty Moonlight dots. I did this by flicking the brush end of the Stampin’ Blend against the lid. My laundry room basin came in handy, to insure I didn’t make a mess.

I love the tall, skinny, tree, a Christmas Trees Die, and used it to cut from three colors of cardstock; Misty Moonlight, Blushing Bride, and Macaron Mint.


The sentiment, “joy,” is from the Whimsical Trees Stamp Set, stamped in Mint Macaron Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die. This die-cut is so cute, I use it whenever I have a word small enough to fit.


I thought I was finished, when the idea to add a bright star, came to mind. A small Rhinestone Jewel made a perfect, bright, star, don’t you think?


Be inspired by our GDP Designers, then create your own card, and hang it in our gallery.
