Heart of Christmas Week 15


Welcome to Week 15 of The Art With Heart Heart Of Christmas blog hop. This week our host is Sharon Davern.

For many weeks now I have been admiring the creations of my upline, the lovely Christine Blain using the Bright Baubles bundle in the current mini and finally I relented recently and purchased it! I have also been admiring the sample on page 40 of the mini catalogue and for my first play with the bundle I decided to CASE it.

The Metallic Baubles are created using the Brushed Metallic cardstock and the Metallics embossing powder. I chose the Copppery looking one and matched that with the copper embossing powder. For the lighter bauble I used the lightest of the Brushed Metallic cardstock and the gold embossing powder. Then I have added matching Brushed Metallic Adhesive dots to each of the baubles. Once again used the coppery ones on the Copper looking bauble and the gold ones on the lighter bauble.

I have then mounted these on some Shimmery White cardstock that I have stamped with a greeting from Perfectly Plaid using Night Of Navy. As I didn't have any matching twine for the baubles, I have coloured the White Bakers Twine from the Essential pack using a Night Of Navy Stampin Blend. Finally the greeting panel has also been stamped in Night Of Navy and has been die cut using one of the Hippo and Friends dies.

I have to say that Christine Blain was right in telling me that I would love this bundle as it has lots of versatility and I plan to create more with it in the future.
