Stampin' For Christmas August Blog Hop

Hey Y'all!
It is time for another Stampin' for Christmas blog hop...Christmas is only 4 months away! I hope you are getting lots of inspiration for projects from this group, I know I am! You may have arrived from Marieke Bart's site, or you may be getting started with me. Either way, we are so glad you are joining us today, and you are going to want to hop all the way through so you don't miss any of the fabulous projects from this amazing group!

I am sharing a project made with one of the brand new Suites available in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog....let's just call it the Holiday Mini for short! Usually, I am a traditional red and green girl. So the fact that I fell in love with the Whimsy & Wonder Suite surprised me!

The name is perfect...I think it's the whimsical trees that I love so much. And those snowflakes that are part of the suite! 

The new Silver Foil Specialty Pack is not part of the suite, but it coordinates perfectly. And the Blushing Bride ribbon is so pretty.  Here, I tied a knot in one end, and then frayed it. I fussy-cut some gifts from some of the DSP as well.

For the inside of my card, I stamped the ornament image in Memento, then colored with Stampin' Blends. I used a Blending Brush to add some Mint Macaron to highlight the sentiment. The photos did not pick it up, but I added Wink of Stella to the bows on the packages and the ornaments on the inside. It gave just a little added sparkle! 
So what about you? Do you usually go for the traditional Christmas colors? Or have these non-traditional, fun colors caught your eye like they did mine? Let me know in the comments!
