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.
Todays card uses the So Many Stars bundle and the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements. I used the large star in the elements pack as my focal point and die cut a Night of Navy star from the Stitched Stars Dies to lift the copper star from the background.
The background itself was just Night of Navy cardstock stamped with the small detailed star from So Many Stars in the Celestial Copper Delicata ink.
I stamped my greeting onto a 3cm x 14.4cm strip of Whisper White cardstock so it went the whole length of the front of the card.
To finish the card I added a Night of Navy Rhinestone in the centre of my Brightly Gleaming Foil Star.
I love the versatility of the So Many Sras stamp set it perfect for Chrsitmas of course but pair it with birthday sentiment and you have so many more options. Today I’m keeping it really simple with two inks and two stamp set, well technically I’m only using one stamp from Perennial Birthday.
I chose a colour combination of Merry Merlot and Copper, mostly so I could use the Celestial Copper Delicata Ink.
I’ve added one of the Star Designer Elements to each card as these are the perfect embellishments for these cards.
I think this last card is my favourite, which is yours? You can’t beat a bit of simple stamping, especially on a Sunday.
