Christmas Blends

November 2, 2017

Since Stampin’ Blends are now available for everyone to purchase, I thought I would share a card that was inspired by one shared by Kelly Kent recently.  I was immediately struck by the idea that it would make a lovely Christmas card.  The card uses the Colour Me Happy stamp set which is not really a Christmas stamp set.  I embossed Cherry Cobbler card using the Holly Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I stamped the “string” across the top left hand corner of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black inkI stamped both the lanterns using the same ink and also using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement perfect.  I coloured two of the lanterns using the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and the centre lantern using Old Olive Blends.  I also used the colour lifter to add a little more lightness to the lanterns.  I attached a piece of the  Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper behind the stamped Whisper White panel before attaching to the card front.  I stamped “merry Christmas” from the Merry Patterns stamp set onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I used the Classic Label Punch to cut out the greeting.  To create a mat for the greeting, I attached the stamped Whisper White card to Old Olive card and trimmed the ends to match the shape of the punched greeting.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the same images across the top left hand corner of Whisper White card.  The images are coloured using the same Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I so love this card and can’t thank Kelly enough for her inspiration, and thank you Stampin’ Up! for creating these fabulous Stampin’ Blends.

Bye for now,
