SIP Challenge #24 Color Challenge - Peaceful Pines

Hello and Happy Tuesday before Thanksgiving!  Do you have your meal all planned out yet?  I'm super excited to be going to my Son and his girlfriend's home for Thanksgiving.  She is an awesome cook and that leaves less for me to do!  I spent way too many years cooking the entire Thanksgiving dinner so this is definitely been a blessing! 
Well since it Tuesday, that means another Challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper!
This week I had a challenge for myself!  Do you ever challenge yourself to try something different?  I really tend to overthink cards and make them more complicated than they should be so my challenge was to do something simple and have a lot of white space.  That should be easy but for me...not so much!  lol   I'm still a work in progress!

On this  card, I started with an A2 Basic black card base.  I added a piece of 5 1/4" Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Trim on both the top and the bottom of my card base with snail adhesive.  I stamped my trees from the Peaceful Pines set in Cucumber Crush onto Whisper White cardstock.  The stars on the trees as well as the "Tis the Season" sentiment were stamped in Watermelon Wonder.  I tore a couple of pieces of Whisper White Cardstock for the snowbanks and glued onto the bottom of the top layer.   I added a layer of Frosted Lace Stickles to the torn edges to add some definition on the snow banks and then attached the top layer to the Basic Black and lace base. 
That was it!  I had more white space on this card than I have ever had.  Again.. I'm a work in progress but I'll get there!  lol
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!  Blessings, Tina


  1. Lovely card Tina. I think you were very successful at keeping white space and perfectly featuring the challenge colors.

  2. What a sweet and simple card, Tina! I love the torn paper snow banks and the little bit of lace trim.
