Stampin Up, Playing with Embellished Ornament stamps and dies
I saw a card in a scrapbook shop one day that grabbed my attention. It used non SU product, so mine has our Embellished Ornament die and the scene is from Cozy Christmas. I was so taken with it that I decided to try it with SU product and I love how it turned out!
I made mine with two different ink colors, Night of Navy and Marina Mist. I first stamped my designs using Staz-On black, then watercolored using my Aqua Pen, then I used my Versa Mark pad to put some ink on the bottom under the house and trees. I sprinkled on Heat and Stick, heated, then added Dazzling Diamonds and heated again. It's hard to see the glitter here, but in person it's very glittery and pretty.
I stamped my sentiment on before embossing with the Softly Falling folder. Then I went mad with pearls. I think I was channeling Ann Schach. Well, really I had a pack with just a few pearls in it that had been sitting in front of me for ages, so I just used them all.
I hope you enjoy this and get some inspiration from it.
