Christmas Stamps for a Non-Christmas Card and A Fun Color Challenge

There's a fun color challenge over on StampNation and I think it may just be my new favorite color combo. Don't be surprised if you see it a lot in the future.
I also wanted to challenge myself to use stamps from Catherine Pooler's It's All About Christmas Release to make a non-Christmas card and this is what I came up with.

I started by inking up the One Fine Pine Background Stamp using 4 of the colors from the challenge - Lime Rickey, Aquatini, tutti Frutti and Over Coffee - from top to bottom. Next I gave it a few sprays of water and then pressed it onto some watercolor card stock. I held it in place for a minute so as to let the paper absorb the ink and then dried it with my heat gun. The trees on the frame are from the Christmas Tree Farm Stamp Set and stamped using Lime Rickey and Icing on the Cake ink.

Now for the die cutting. I cut the background piece with a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn and the trees are cut with their coordinating dies. I used Chocolate card stock to cut the thick frame from Chalkboard Frame Dies and the Hello from the Ways To Say Hey Dies

To put it all together I layered the tree panel onto a piece of Chocolate card stock then added that to a Sand Dunes card base with craft foam. I adhered the Hello to the bottom of the Chalkboard Frame, added a sheet of acetate behind then adhered the big tree to the acetate. Next I added some foam adhesive strips to the back of the frame, poured a few sequins into the center of the card and then adhered the frame on top. Lastly I adhered the little tree to the front of the frame and this card is done.

Happy Stampin'
