Shepherds in the Field

I am getting into Christmas card making mode and used the colors from the As You See It Challenge for the inspiration.

I used the stamp set Every Blessing from Stampin Up, issued in 2015. I have used it each year since I purchased it. The colors used are Starry Sky in ink and cardstock, Mango Melody, which I used Sweet Mango from Gina K Designs for the substitute, and Parakeet Party. I laid the card on Parakeet Party for the photo. The black cardstock is My Favorite Things with Gina K Designs Black Onyx ink.

I really enjoyed blending these colors together. I was inspired by the DT Heather Cooper on the As You See It Challenge. I liked how her blended background looked so I gave it a try. Mine looks quite different from hers.

Thanks for sharing in my card. I enjoyed stopping my busy life and creating.

  1. Beautiful! I love your inked background, and your silhouette images look great on it. I am impressed that you come up with a new card idea each year using this set! I need to get better at reusing sets I have instead of rushing to purchase new ones.

    1. Not sure I send many cards with the set each year, but I have used it for at least one card each year. I tend to look for new ones also. Thanks!

  2. I’d never have thought of Christmas with these colours but your lovely Christmas silhouette is just a perfect way to use the colours. I like that you were inspired by Heather to give it a try. I think your experiment was a great success. Thanks for joining in with us at As You See It Challenge.

  3. Gorgeous take on the colors, Lisa – a brilliant nativity scene! Your blending is so smooth, love it! Thanks so much for playing at As You See It AND Retro Rubber!

  4. Lisa, this is such a lovely and meaningful way to use these colours, and I love that you used them as a blended background, just as I did. You did a beautiful job blending. I like how the lighter colours correspond with the star. Thanks for getting colourful with us at As You See It Challenges!

  5. I’m with the other Lisa in that it amazes me how you come up with a different way to use and older stamp. Your background is lovely and the silhouetted nativity scene is just right.

  6. I would never have thought to use these colours with a Christmas set but you’ve totally pulled it off Lisa – the lighter tones work perfectly and the angle of your blending draws the eye to the star beautifully. Thanks for playing along with our colour challenge over at As You See It this week!

  7. Great job on the blending to use the Shepards in silhouette! The darker star on the blended section is perfect! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber!
