'Tis The Season For Baubles


Welcome to Week 11 of The Art With Heart Heart Of Christmas blog hop. This week our host is Tina Gillespie.

This week I have taken my inspiration from Page 24 of the July to December mini catalogue. Although I do love the traditional Christmas colours of Red, Green and White, these Pinks and Blues are a lovely alternate.

My starting point for this card was to stamp multiple images of the baubles from the Whimsical Trees stamp set using my stamparatus. I initially stamped the top row moving the plate along every second spot. I then moved the stamp down and stamped using the alternate spots on the Stamparatus. Using the Stamparatus makes it so easy to get multiple images at precise regular intervals.I then coloured the images using Stampin Blends. Then using the corresponding dies I stamped, coloured, and cut 2 more images and  placed them over the existing images to give some depth.


I've then added a banner along the top using the Silver foil from the Specialty pack in the mini and die cut it using the Basic Borders. I then mounted all of this on a piece of the matching DSP from the Whimsy and Wonder pack. I've added some of the Silver Simply Elegant Trim and the sentiment is from Christmas to Remember and has been die cut with the corresponding die from Seasonal Labels.
