Heart of Christmas - Blessings of Home
August 15, 2022
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.
If a link on the blog hop is broken, you can find all the participants links on Sharon's blog here.
Scroll down to see all of the products I used this week, and I will see you again on Wednesday for Colour Creations, and next Monday for more Heart of Christmas, with the Blessings from Home stamp set and dies!

I love the look of images coloured in Stampin' Blends on Shimmery White card ... and yours is gorgeous, Kathryn. The two greens you've used for the card base and mat are my favourites for Christmas this year. :)

Lovely card where the stamped image lends well to a Christmas theme. Beautifully coloured flowers Kathryn.

A beautiful Christmas card Kathryn. I so love your colouring with a Blender Pen. You have built up the colour perfectly. Great use of the Blessing of home bundle. Xxx

Your card is gorgeous Kathryn, I love that you have stamped on the shimmery white and then coloured it which is just exquisite. I love that you have layered it all over the DSP and vellum. Beautiful!

How wonderful! I never would have looked at your card and thought that it wasn't a Christmassy image. Your colouring is beautiful.

You're right Blessing of Home is a great choice to convert to be a christmas card. Love love love the shimmer on those flowers as well as how the vellum subdues the background paper.

A perfect Christmas card Kathryn. Your focal image is beautifully coloured and I love the addition of the vellum piece to create a more subtle tone.

Beautiful colouring, Kathryn and what a lovely way to incorporate this bundle into Christmas! The shimmery cardstock adds a pretty shimmer and the vellum tones down the patterned paper below perfectly!
