Artisan Design Team Blog Hop – Christmastime

In Stampin' Up! by Emma Goddard1 Comment

Christmas has come early!!! – Welcome to a Christmastime Artisan Blog Hop. All 16 of us will be sharing a whole lot of makes using the Christmastime Suite

We hope you’re ready to make this holiday season magical, because the Christmastime Is Here Suite is, well . . . here! This exclusive, limited-time collection of festive, floral coordinating products has everything you and your customers need to share love, joy, and creativity this holiday season.

This suite includes the Stamp Set, Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper and a Charming Rose Bracelet – the perfect Christmas Gift. 

I have used the stamps for all three cards and coloured them in three different ways; top left has been stamped on Watercolour paper and coloured using the inks an aqua painter, the top right card has been stamped and coloured using the distinctive stamps which match beautifully to in-fill all of the image – perfect if colouring is not your thing!? or you are new to card making, and finally the bottom centre card has been stamped all around the edges and coloured using Blends.

This close up doesn’t quite capture the sparkle!!… but I have added a touch of Champagne Shimmer Paint to the Sahara Sand ink to colour the Roses on this card. The other inks I have used are Poppy Parade, Old Olive, and Soft Suede. To complete the card I have added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots! Both these dots and the gold ribbon are just SO pretty!!!!

For this card I have used all Stamps to in-fill the colour. the coordinating Distinctive stamps perfectly match up with all the element to the outline stamp, so even makes the pine needles quick to colour!

For my final card I have used the same large flower image, and stamped all around the edge of the card for a pretty border. I have stamped in Memento ink and coloured using the Blends. The centre sentiment is stamped in versamark and embossed in gold powder. I then have added some Champagne Shimmer splatters & added a Linen Thread bow to complete the card.
