This week for the Art With Heart - Heart of Christmas Blog Hop, I have selected a non-Christmas stamp set for the main image.I wanted to glance through my stash of stamp sets and check which other sets could be adapted to a Christmas theme, just by adding a Christmas greeting stamp, and selecting a Christmas colour palette.
I love how the Blessings of Home Bundle could be easily adapted for this, just by colouring it more traditional Christmas colours.
I stamped the main image on Shimmery White card stock then coloured with our Blender Pens, picking the ink up from the ink pad and lightly brushing it on until I got the depth of colour I required.
In this photo you can see the shimmer in the image from the card stock.
I die-cut this pieces and layered it with Dimensionals onto a layer of Vellum Cardstock, cut exactly the same size as the piece of Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper underneath.
This was layered onto Evening Evergreen card, which in turn was layered onto Soft Succulent. A few Pearl Basic Jewels were added for more glimmer, and a cut 3 pieces of foliage from Evening Evergreen card for more texture and to add a little more dark contrast to the card.
I stamped and coloured the other floral bouquet image in this stamp set too, so be sure to come back next week and see a second Christmas card using this same stamp set and colour scheme, but a completely different card!
In the meantime, I am off to hop around the other Art With Heart Blogs to see what the other Heart of Christmas ladies have created. I hope you will join me. Click on the box below to go to lovely Tina Gillespie's blog.
