Warming Things up with PB&J

November 4, 2015

This week we have one question for a few of our designers…


“I always lean towards non-traditional Christmas color combos. This year I’ve been drawn to the elegance of a warm, neutral color palette.” -Jill


Using these golden tones and our transparent set, 30-319 Snow Fairies, and Creative Die, 51-161 Into the Woods, Jill created a magical and miniature snowy scene.



Watch directly on YouTube HERE.

As a bonus, Jill created a second card using her favorite Christmas color combo. Our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-427 Pretty Perch, lends itself to color combo experimentation. What colors would you use for this nature-inspired image?

    Such sweet cards. I’m not into earth tones myself but I love the look of these 2 cards.

    Great cards…love the warm colors. I have started on Christmas cards and I was amazed at how many of my holiday stamps are Penny Black…so timeless and I still love everyone of them.

    Beautiful cards by Jill. I’m so inspired by the techniques she uses and try to use them on my cards. Beautiful designs from Penny Black help, also! Some of my favorite Christmas cards that I’ve created this year are from you guessed it, Plenty Black designs! 🙂
