Hometown Greetings Sparkling Christmas Card


Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies

 Hello Friends,

There's a new toy in my Craft Room and I simply had to play with it.  So, of course, I made a card.  For today's card I decided to pair the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies and the Illuminated Christmas stamps.  These little dies offer so many possibilities.  I feel a Bridge Card Tutorial coming in the near future.

 What's That Sparkle?

  1. Shimmery White Embossing Paste-Doesn't it look like snow shimmering in the moonlight?
  2. Gold Foil Sheets-I placed bits and pieces of Gold Foil Sheets behind my building and houses for extra pop.
  3. Gold Heat Embossing-Continuing with my Gold and White theme, I Heat Embossed my sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder.  All the sentiments for today's Card come from the Illuminated Christmas stamps.


Embossing Paste

 Now about that embossing paste.  It's super easy to use.  Simply spread on a layer of paste and allow to dry.  It's a lot like frosting a cookie or cake.  I used the Shimmery White Embossing Paste to look like glistening snow.



Illuminated Christmas Stampin' Up!

I carried the Wise Men still seek him theme through to the inside of my card.  The gold embossing on the Night of Navy card stock is really striking.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by Stamping Country.

  

Have a fabulous day,

Petal Palette & the Blue Bird

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

The other day my grandson and I shared a walk and much to our delight we spotted a bluebird.  His blue and orange looked so bright and cheerful against the early autumn landscape.  The fields of soybeans and corn are ripe for harvest.  The bright autumn display of color hasn't quite arrived yet, so that bright color of the bluebird was so delightful.   Anyway, all that the inspired today's Petal Palette Autumn card.


Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

The Soft Suede and Copper make a beautiful autumn backdrop.  And the shimmery copper of the Copper foil paper and the copper embossing look fabulous against the ripple of the corrugated embossing.  I frayed the ends of my Braided Linen Thread to look like nest material.

Bluebird Coloring Techniques

The bluebird is a mix of techniques.  I stamped my bird using Pacific Point ink, then I brushed my Aqua Painter across the blue for a watercolored look.  I wanted is breast to really pop, so I colored it with my Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.  I went basic with a black marker and dotted his eye and beak.   Isn't he gorgeous?
