I have the honour of guesting at Color Throwdown,
after recently being lucky enough to be their featured stamper.
The colour palette this week is Red, Pink and Mint Green....
This is my card......
After stamping and heat embossing I used metallic Mint green paint for the leaves.
I mixed a couple of 'red' embossing powders to triple emboss the die cut sentiment.
I was going for vintage shades of pink, green and red.
Finishing off with pink and white pearl liquid drops.
The talented and creative team at Color Throwdown have tons of inspiration for you....
The photo also inspired me to use 'pink' for the berries.
I am super thrilled with guesting and thank you so much for asking me.
Challenges I would love to enter......
Country View Challenge - Anything Christmas goes
We Love Stamping - Anything stamped
Uniko - Celebrate
How striking this looks on the Kraft card and the embossed edges finish it perfectly, thank you so much for sharing and joining us at We Love Stamping December challenge.
Mac this is exquisite - love the soft pink berries and the white embossing. That sentiment is stunning in the bold and shiny red
A gorgeous card Mac and those pink pearls really do stand out beautifully. I love to see white embossing on Kraft card....perfect! x
The kraft paper really makes the twig shine and I also like the design of the edges, it gives it such a frosty look.
Just two words Mac
YUM YUM! x
Another beauty Mac! Your metallic mint green leaves and those soft pink berries look FABULOUS with the bold and bright red...LOVE it!! Hugs. :0)
Congratulations on guesting at CT! 👏🎉🎉🎉
Your card is classy in a vintage-y kind of way! 😉 The metallic paint gives it beautiful shimmer. Finishing it off with a bold triple embossed red sentiment (love the dimension) is perfection!
You are a wonderful Guest of Honor, Mac! LOve the vintage colors you've chosen today for this beauty! I always love it when your metallics come out for a play - a perfect choice for a Christmas card, right?
Congratulations on your win, and this GD spot, my friend!
A very pretty card with the mint green on the leaves! Beautiful pink and white pearl drops! All so lovely against the kraft and wonderful frosty edges!
Fabulous stamp and colouring, that triple embossed die cut is brilliant it looks like piped writing not a flat die cut at all. Thank you for sharing with us at We Love Stamping and good luck xx
Congratulations on your Guest spot Mac, and your card is gorgeous, I love the simple design on the kraft card and the colours are so beautiful, Kate x
Definitely a "Star" stamper Mac, this is a gorgeous way to use the colours, so very Beautiful.
What a beautiful image and the metallic mint green looks wonderful for the leaves using the kraft card, and I love the dimensional pink and white pearl drops for the berries, and the triple embossed sentiment stands out brilliantly Mac. The red and white glitter embossed edge is a fantastic finishing touch too. x
Congrats on your GDT spot, Mac. Love how you've incorporated the colours with the kraft cardstock.
Love it, the metallic elements look wonderful on the kraft card and the messy embossed edges are a great finishing touch. Congrats on your guest designer spot and thanks for joining us at we love stamping. So lovely to see you in the gallery xx
Yes, you are the master of surprising :-) I love how you saw this challenge in your head. I love the delicate mint green glossy leaves and these amazing berries. I was convinced that you drew these white reflections with a white pen, but they were created naturally after using a pink liquid pearl. The effect is stunning and the red sentiment completes this card.
Stay healthy and safe, Mac, you and all your family!\hugs,
Gorgeous card and the embossed sentiment is genius, love it. Have a very happy and creative week, hugs Angela xXx
What a fabulous use of texture and pretty frostiness, Mac! Looks amazing! Merry Christmas to you, my friend. xx
So very pretty and delicate! I love these colours on kraft! Congrats on GD:)
Great job with what I think of as a very difficult colour combination! You've created a beautiful and unique card - I love the mint green leaves and the use of the pink pearl drops!
Congrats on being GD at colour throw down and love your take on the Challenge especially that stunning red sentiment ♥

I am not a lover of using Kraft card for cards but this looks really stunning. You might just have converted me!! Hugs Mrs A.
Congrats on your guest design spot. Your card is beautiful! I haven't done heat embossing in a while....but you sure have inspired me to get my heat gun out.
So very beautiful and creative, Mac! Love these colours on the darker card base. The shimmer from the metallic paints and dimension you've added with the pink berries is outstanding. Congrats on being GD at Color Throwdown! xx
Beautiful card, love the translucence of the leaves with the white embossing.
Congratulations on the GD spot at CTD, Mac!
This card is so pretty with lots of shimmer and shine! I love the well-balanced amount of the shimmery paints and the pearly liquid drop. The dimension of the die-cut sentiment is wonderful, and the two-tone edging is a nice touch too!

I have returned to say I hope you have enjoyed your Christmas and to thank you for your thoughtful and so kind comments and to wish you all the best for 2022, and I look forward to seeing lots more of your beautiful work. x
Stunning card, Mac. I’ve just been scrolling through all your recent posts, what a beautiful creations! Your posts don’t seem to have come up in my reading list recently. I’m not sure whyxx
This is lovely. I really like the pearl drops for extra texture. Hope you had a wonderful holiday and will have a great new year!
I love how you used Kraft card as the base the subtle pink from the berries is such a well match colour against that rustic brown. Another out of this world creation always giving so much inspiration to others.
Wishing you a happy, healthy and creative 2022 and all the best for the coming New Year. Thank you also for your blog friendship. Stay safe Tracey xx

I'm so late catching up, but I had to comment on this fabulous card, Mac! When I read the colour choices, I thought it would be an odd mix, but your card is simply stunning! The metallic paint looks so frosty on the kraft card and the triple embossing on the sentiment is perfect.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas,
