My TLC86 holiday card with nontraditional colors. I thought it might be hard, but once I chose my colors I was off and running. I did hear my Hero Arts Xmas stamps crying out......"pick me, pick me"..poor negleted things :-( I did use Flannel (my fav. BG stamp lately....besides Paisley) and Linen. I chose Vintage Violet and Morning Marigold for my nontraditional colors. I used leslierich's idea of stamping Flannel with one color (V.V) and then turning stamp and stamping in a 2nd color (after cleaning stamp), which was Cranberry Crisp. Thanks Beth for another fun technique.

Oh, Nancy, this is just wonderful! I LOVE the flannel stamped this way! It's so funny, I just got back from a trip to my fav SS and I bought this exact same holly stamp, great minds think alike! I really like the berries with the crystal effects and pretty xmas script!

Oh, how nice -- I really love that b/g flannel you created with the 2 colors -- I didn't know to do that, but now I do -- thanks so much!!! I really appreciate when people elaborate on instructions -- it sure helps. I am always attracted to the non-traditional colors for Christmas -- always have been -- this is just really pretty.

Hero Arts meets Stampin' Up--a great combo! I love the two colors you chose for your Flannel. They work really well together. It's very Christmasy looking in spite of the nontraditional colors. Nice touch with the Crystal Effects. I like it!
