Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

Good morning stampers! Today I have a pink Christmas card, made for the Inspiration Challenge at SCS this week. I used this doll house for inspiration. All of the images for this card can be found in the Holiday Cheer StampTV Kit.

I stamped the gingerbread house with Memento ink and colored with Copics, starting with E57.

Added E35.

Added E53.

Used R24 on the fireplace bricks.

Added R22.

Used R24 on the lollipop.

Added B00 to shade the roof tiles.

Used RV21 and R42 on the door, curtains and trim.

Y21 in the windows.

For the background I sponged Pretty in Pink (SU), using a torn Post-it note to mask the bottom.

Sponged Regal Rose.

I adjusted the Post-it note and sponged Pretty in Pink to create some snowbanks.

Sponged Regal Rose along the edges on the bottom.

Stamped the trees with Pretty in Pink.

I created a second background panel, sponging with Regal Rose and stamped the snowflakes. The third panel was embossed with my Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder and then sponged very lightly with Pretty in Pink to emphasize the snowflakes. I also added some Doodlebug glitter to the gingerbread house.

Have a happy day!
