Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday and Happy Birthday to Taylored Expressions and Cuppie!!!

I have two samples to share with you using this color combo! I made both of my cards holiday cards...I just love to use non-traditional colors on holiday cards!!

For my first card, I stamped this SUPER sweet tree decorating cuppie from Seasons Sweetings in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.

The patterned paper is a mix of Sweater Weather and Smitten Mitten, both from the new Jolly By Golly collection from Cosmo Cricket.

I framed Cuppie in Rectangle Nestabilities and added piercing ALL over the card!! The ribbon is white satin ribbon that I colored with a Copic Marker and also some yummy Raspberry Twill Ribbon!!

I finished this one off with some Vanilla Brads!! Easy Peasy!

For my second card, I used this uber adorable cuppie from Home Sweet Home, and once again I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.

For this card, I used another Jolly By Golly pattern, Play Day. I framed Cuppies in Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities and added TONS of piercing again!!

I finished this card off with three sugar coated brads by Doodlebug.

I cannot WAIT to see what you all do with this color combo!!! Again, make sure you use the Keyword, TEBBJC when you upload!!

Have fun and good luck!!!

Jodi

These are such beautiful cards. I love the scallopy edge on the snow cupcake card. I didn't have the exact SU or Prism colors, so I went with the closest match. Thanks for hosting this challenge:
