One of the things I love about crafting is that things don’t always have to be accurate – you can colour your Christmas any colour you like – I opted for Highland Heather and Smoky Slate here, using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and my trusty Stampin Blends.
Those ornaments are simply stunning aren’t they, the design and the colour! I actually used my Highland Heather and my Purple Posy Blends, because it meant I could really give it a 3D effect as the colour got light to the middle. The colour lifter really helps to fade it into white in the middle. I used the same technique with the Smoky Slate on the tops of them too, and on the leaves.
The sentiment is from the same set, and I LOVE it because you just stamp in a colour and cut round it. Doesn’t it look like it has been heat embossed? Oh, and I forgot to mention that I used Memento Black ink for the main stamping, that’s the ink you need when working with the alcohol in the Stampin’ Blends.
The centre panel of the card is Highland Heather 7.3cm x 11.2cm and Whisper White 6.8cm x 10.7cm. The hanging lines are drawn on using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker and the right hand bauble is propped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a bit of a lift.
