Bells & Boughs Set Sampler


I meet with my third stamp club tomorrow evening and Terry, the hostess, chose Bells & Boughs as the set to featured.  It was pretty hard to narrow down the projects I wanted to feature as this set is pretty versatile. 

Here are the projects:

This first card is pretty basic in that it has a tone-on-tone background stamped with the holly image on Not Quite Navy cardstock.  The bit of flare for this card come from the siler holly image under the sentiment – I brought out my little bottle of Platinum Shimmer Paint from the back of my drawer to stamp that.  Partnered with a bit of Brushed Silver cardstock and organza ribbon, it’s simple elegance shines through and is perfect for mass producing.

This card uses the classic color combo of Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla.  The vanilla piece was run through the Big Shot using the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder AND a wooden oval frame to create the poinsettia frame around the center stamped image.  Can’t wait to show you how to do this!

This last sample for this stamp set is my favorite.  The bell image was stamped with black Stazon ink and colored using blender pens.  I created some added interest by adding Crystal Effects and a pinch of glitter to the ribbon image and I popped the bell using a dimensional.  My favorite part though is the ruffled satin ribbon under the Cherry Cobbler piece.
