I have showcased the Joyous Noel Suite today!  And it is an awesome Suite of products.  The colors are traditional with a bit of a twist.  Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide are the main two I focused on.  They are more of a jewel tone than a bright Red and Green of traditional Christmas Colors.  After seeing these on today’s card though, I believe I will be using them for non-holiday cards as well.

 

 

Stampin' Up!, Peaceful Noel, Joyous Noel DSP, Jackie Beers

Peaceful Noel, 147694

 

To go with the Merry Merlot and TranquilTide, I added Sahara Sand as a soft blending color.  The DSP includes Sahara Sand and Gray Granite as the soft colors.  Either would be perfect and are equally gorgeous.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

 

 

The Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper has copper foil details on one side and more traditional paper on the other.  For this card I went with the not coppered side.  I love the softness of the colors on this particular sheet.

When I noticed the different shades of green in the evergreen sprigs of the paper, I wanted to mimic that as a detail on the focal layer.  I inked the stamp with Tranquil Tide, stamped in the corner, then stamped again on each side without re-inking the stamp. I repeated this on opposite corners.  I stamped the star design on the opposing corners.   I thought it was very cool the dramatically different shades of green from doing that technique.  I hope you will give it a try.  A note though….it requires a darker color to be able to stamp three times without reinking.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate you visiting my blog.  And if you do not have a current demonstrator, I would love to assist you.  Also, please let me know if you need a new catalog.  I have listed the measurements and the supplies I used on this card for you.  Please stop back tomorrow for a new card.
