Wonderful Blessing - New Christmas Single Stamps! With HSS168 Color Challenge.

Pin It Now! Oh, yay!  I got some new Christmas stamps this week, and they're just what I was hoping for from Stampin' Up! this year.  Classic, reverent, Christian images and words that just make my heart swell.

I used two of them for this card using the color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
I just love the big, beautiful nativity scene of the Wonderful Blessing stamp! The nice, wide burlap ribbon makes a big statement without being fussy.  The doily is brayered with Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink to give it a non-traditional pop of color.
The edges of the Gumball Green circle are lined with a blend of gold  Stampin' Glitter with a touch of black glitter mixed in to give it a vintage glass glitter look.  A basic rhinestone in the center of the Star of Bethlehem is colored with a gold marker.  
Inside, another single stamp, Magical Season, is colored with Stampin' Write Markers in this weeks colors:
You should check out the challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I'd love to see where this color combo leads you...autumn?  Masculine?  Christmas?  Something else?

Here are the singles stamps available right now!  These are not in the Holiday Mini, so pick them up to round out your Christmas stamp collection.  Let me know if you want some :D
Have a blessed and creative day ~ Erika
