Christmas Baubles Card

Today I’ve been playing with the Christmas Gleaming bundle making loads of baubles, which is super easy with the punch duo and the gorgoeus Brightly Gleaming Speciality DSP.  I love this paper and it seems everyone esle does to as Stampin’ Up! can’t seem to keep the warehouses stocked with it.

I’ve paired my gorgeous background paper with a matt layer in Pretty Peacock, I was tempted to use Copper Foil but thought that might ne a copper overload with the Celestial Copper ink and Brightly Gleaming Foil elements which also appear on the card.

Along with the baubles, one punched and one stamped, I’ve stamped the holly spring. I stamped this in Celestial Copper Delicata Ink and the coloured with Stampin’ Blends. The colours have gone a little muddy so I think next time I’ll use Versamark and Copper Embossing Powder if I want to colour an image.

A simple Merry Christmas stamped in Pretty Peacock and the card is done.

No “Stamping” Detailed Deer Card

I didn’t realise until I’d finished this card that I didn’t actually stamp anything to make it, which just shows you how lovely cards can be with just some paper and die-cuts. The Brightly Gleaming Speciality DSP is pretty special though with its gorgeous Copper Foil accents and many of you must agree as its flying out the doors of the Stampin’ Up! warehouses.

This copper deer was one of my favourite images from last years Autumn/Winter catalogue and I was so glad it carried over. It’s so beautiful that it doesn’t need any other images with it.

I added some of the Classic Weave Ribbon which has Merry Christmas running along it works as both an embellishment and a greeting. I finished the card off with three of the Star Designer Elements which I coloured with a dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends which gave them a gorgeous patina effect finish.
